A New Restoration in Old Town

Originally a dilapidated row house built in 1870, this Old Town home was transformed by Cook Architecture and developer Steven Wheeler into a home that doesn’t look like the type of renovated house in the DC area. The main level is an open living-dining-kitchen space with new Brazilian walnut floors and a new wood-burning stove (60,000 BTU), as well as a kitchen with Poggenpohl cabinets, a Bosch gas range and a Liebherr refrigerator. Upstairs are two en-suite bedrooms with restored wood beams, and the home also offers cool features like a custom walnut cabinet on the main level that can be used as coat closet or TV storage.
