$749,000 2853 ONTARIO ROAD NW Unit: 316, WASHINGTON, DC 20009
JUST LISTED. Vacant & Staged. The Ontario 316 is a premiere apartment home in one of Washington's Best Addresses. This extraordinary two bedroom, one bath 1121 SF residence is a dream home for those with a discerning design eye: exposures on three sides, paired Jeffersonian pocket windows opening onto an handsome iron balcony, 10-foot ceilings, crowned with hefty moldings - just one of many original architectural details that pay homage to the building's storied history. The living and dining rooms open onto one another and allow the rooms to work as one grand gathering spot or two singular, intimate spaces. Six foot, double-paned windows throughout allow profuse natural light to saturate each space and highlight crisp white walls that provide the perfect backdrop for an art collection and the magnificent outdoor vistas. The spacious social kitchen with ample counters, open shelving and abundant cabinetry is certain to delight amicable chefs who love cooking among friends and family. The bedrooms echo the aesthetic found in the living and dining areas with their mix of white walls and original woodwork as well as its wealth of windows with a photographer's view of the iconic Ontario cupola, mature trees and neighboring rowhomes. Referred to as one of the city's grandest dames of architecture and tradition, the Beaux Arts Ontario building represents quintessential DC apartment living. Mostly owner-occupied, this turn-of-the-century, six-story building opened in 1905. Sited on three leafy acres, with two courtyards and a stone pathway surrounding the perimeter of the building, Ontario residents enjoy a park-like setting in the center of the city. Located in Lanier Heights, on the corner of Ontario Road and 18th Streets, NW, the Ontario sits in a quiet corner of Washington's diverse and dynamic Adams Morgan neighborhood. Two blocks from Columbia Road, the Ontario is just steps to Metro stations, green spaces, grocery stores, popular retail destinations, coffee or cocktails at The Line hotel and meals at Tail Up Goat, Mintwood Place Restaurant or Elle, some of the city's finest Michelin Star restaurants. On-site rental parking available from $100/mo
