WASHINGTON, DC, USA
2343 KING PL NW
(Square Feet for house is wrong. Should be 2743 plus) Welcome to 2343, where serenity is king. On a quiet, blissfully located one-block street, this charming home fronts its own unique "Retreat House". Architect-designed, professionally landscaped, the wondrous screened sanctum stands tall among taller trees, sustainable native plants, outdoor lighting, and an entrancing waterfall. With electricity and wood-burning fireplace, the captivating structure crowns a flat yard of grass, pebbles, garden, and deck behind what's been called "the Happy House". Carefully remodeled and expanded during 21 years of attentive ownership, the most recent 2014 renovation created a terrific front porch; separate street-level entrance to an entertainment room; exercise and laundry room; computer and carpenter room; large larder with special new refrigerator; and full bath. This Sylvan property is tucked into Berkley, a friendly, convenient neighborhood surrounded on three sides by woods and parkland. Berkley is adjacent to Foxhall and Palisades, between Foxhall Road and MacArthur Blvd. The fabulous community of easy streets and coffee shops is also prized for its new Palisades Library and Super Fun 4th of July Palisades Parade! Although the home was originally described with two bedrooms on its main floor, current owners used one of these rooms as an office and library. To the two upper floor bedrooms, full bath, storage, and linen room, they added a delightful master bedroom and bathroom, with two walk-in closets and lovely deck. This wonderful, sunny home provides at least 2743 square feet of excellent Interior living space, with an estimated 300 in its romantic cedar "Retreat House". It's so quiet and calm here, you won't believe you're in our nation's capital and close to everything you need. Recent studies by Cox & Streeter confirm that "place matters. When given a choice, most people prefer to live close to the basics of everyday life. Increased neighborliness and home values correlate with proximity to positive community basics and reduced commute times. Residents of amenity-packed neighborhoods are more likely to say their community is an excellent place to live". It is!
