Modern Wrapped in Tradition
To see this house from the street, one might think traditional. Open the massive modern front door with seeded glass and you are in a most beautiful eclectic mix. The light oak floors, simple trim and the lack of crown molding, set the stage for a family home filled with modern furniture, antiques and beautiful artwork. White oak beams and casing in the family room are joined by a stone fireplace and matching range vent hood in the kitchen for a very organic feel. Off the foyer is a light filled kids space, chalk full of toys, books pictures and their crafts. The attic is spacious and setup as a library with built in bookcases on both walls with 2 sofas in the middle. The perfect place to lay down, read or book or just dream. And out back, the pool is a place for splashing and playing. The home is exactly what this family with young children wanted to build in DC.
