$715,033 2853 ONTARIO ROAD NW Unit: 204, WASHINGTON, DC 20009
This is a home worthy of the majestic space it occupies: a storied residential landmark known as one of the finest buildings in DC. Welcome to 2853 Ontario Road NW #204, a distinctly spacious one-bedroom apartment that combines contemporary style and character all under one glamorous roof. Set within The Ontario, "one of the city's grandest dames of architecture and tradition," this unforgettable home is steeped in history yet firmly rooted in the now. Inside, soaring ceilings and sunlit vantages (from both North and West exposures) envelop you in wonder and warmth, while modern light fixtures throughout add a touch of grandeur. Open and inviting, the home’s main living area, framed by its striking fireplace, overlooks a coveted separate dining area with two original china cabinets—the perfect backdrop for entertaining friends or spicing up a run-of-the-mill Monday night. In this home, enchanting perks meet practical accommodations, like the captivating views of the leaf-laden trees at your fingertips. Newly reimagined by design firm Residents Underwood, the kitchen is a true show-stopper, complete with elegant cabinetry and shelving, state-of-the-art appliances, chic tiling, and an oak library ladder that’s as practical as it is charming. Around the corner, the home’s bedroom has been designed with your comfort and convenience in mind. Two annexed closets make your loftiest walk-in closet dreams possible, while a spacious bathroom just steps away has been recently renovated with brass sconces, and white marble subway tiles. Both the linen and bedroom closets are fully outfitted, with the second annexed closet suited for storage, your new office nook, or a designated vanity area—depending on whichever best matches your lifestyle. In-unit full size washer and dryer and on-site rental parking from $100/mo complete this extraordinary home. Pets are welcome here. The Ontario: A turn-of-the-century dwelling, the Beaux Arts Ontario was built in 1906. Today, the building’s appeal has only continued to flourish thanks to its sought-after location, first-rate amenities, and historical roots. Sited on three verdant acres, The Ontario is brimming with the perks of park living—including two picturesque courtyards and the walking trails that surround the perimeter. Here, flowering fruit trees abound, an herb garden grows, and residents are free to harvest and host parties year-round. The location: Tucked away on an idyllic corner of Lanier Heights, The Ontario sits at the center of Washington’s diverse and dynamic Mount Pleasant and Adams Morgan neighborhoods. Two blocks from Columbia Road, this iconic building is a short stroll to the city’s most vibrant attractions. Explore the eclectic lineup of dining mainstays just beyond your doorstep, shop for boutique threads, run everyday errands with ease, and grab cocktails at The Line Hotel. And when you do feel like venturing out, the city’s premier destinations are only a short Metro ride away. Representing a seamless fusion of past and present, Ontario 204 is a home that will never go out of style.
