Baluster, a boutique collection of exquisite, 19th century Capitol Hill townhomes, debuts this month.
From custom home builder Petra Development, the five brownstones are located directly on quaint Stanton Park, just blocks from the Capitol Building, Supreme Court and Union Station. Each brownstone offers 3,600 square feet of living space, five bedrooms, designer finishes and custom millwork throughout. The homes are uniquely zoned for both commercial and residential use, giving Baluster owners the opportunity to use these sprawling spaces as homes, offices or both.
All five four-story Baluster townhomes were originally built in 1884. While the rusticated brownstone stairs, slate turrets and brick exteriors have been painstakingly restored, the interiors have been completely renovated, creating a harmonious balance of traditional historic and cutting-edge modern.
Solid mahogany reproductions of the original front doors give way to 11-foot ceilings; wide-plank oak flooring; and custom-milled hand-made interior doors, base/crown moldings and wall paneling. The homes also feature bespoke, imported Binova cabinets and Kico built-in closets; state-of-the-art Miele appliances; imported Italian marble showers and floors; wifi-controlled thermostats; and Sonos wireless sound systems. While the homes’ exteriors look as they did when they were first built, the rear exteriors are storefront glass systems with a 10-foot glass back door.
Each home includes a private roof deck with views ranging from the Basilica to the Capitol, a landscaped backyard and private parking. The first of the five homes to be revealed also features its own two-story, 1,100-square-foot carriage house.
