For this installment of What X Buys, UrbanTurf is featuring homes on the DC market for about $1.9 million.
A Tudor With Many Past Lives
Coming in under budget in Colonial Village, this renovated Tudor would be impressive even if it had not formerly been an ambassador's residence, hosted a dinner party where John F. Kennedy was a guest, and counted Gallaudet University as an owner. The living room and family room both have tray ceilings and slate panel fireplaces, and a turret protruding from the house creates an octagonal sunroom on the main level, which opens onto a large deck. The owner's bedroom has a marble-clad en-suite bath that opens onto a private octagonal terrace. The third story of the house is a two-bedroom in-law suite with kitchenette and an octagonal living room. The interior garage opens into the lower level, which has a wine cellar with access to a separate storage room. The house also has nearly half an acre of lawn and patio space.

Details from Floor to Double-Height Ceiling
This center-hall colonial in Woodley Park has a transom archway in the living room that leads to the centerpiece of the home, a great room with stacked windows, double-height spaces and herringbone hardwood flooring with a decorative inlayed border. One wall in the great room is covered with a built-in desk surrounded by cabinetry which seamlessly blends into the bright kitchen. The uppermost level is a skylit owner's suite with built-ins on three walls, two dressing rooms and a private terrace. A study on the second floor also has a wall of built-ins and windows drawing in light from the great room. One bedroom and bath are also on the lower level, along with a rec room.
