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.
