Welcome to 5920 16th Street NW, a 4,020 square foot haven that combines 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 2 half baths, 1 office, and a detached garage -- all set on a picturesque lot that spans 4,897 square feet.

Step across the threshold to find a main level that maximizes livability with its effortless, circular flow, light hardwood floors, and a multitude of windows that enhance the natural light coursing throughout. Highlights on this floor are the spacious living room that features a decorative fireplace as well as the separate dining room that offers direct kitchen access. Stylishly renovated, the airy, chef's kitchen serves up stainless appliances, quartz counters, ample cabinetry, and windows that overlook the back garden.

Upstairs, level 1 of the 2-story Primary Suite can be configured for either your main bedroom or office. A second corner ensuite bedroom boasts a sizable walk-in closet with southern & eastern exposures. Steps away, a cozy bedroom/den is the ideal nursery or library depending on your needs. The spiral staircase leads up to the second Primary Suite level, where a bedroom escape or private office seamlessly caters to your routine. South-and-north-facing windows add brightness, a half bath creates convenience, and a newly installed mini split (2024) is devoted to optimal summer cooling.

Back downstairs, the central hallway staircase spills into a lower-level exercise area (complete with a mirror wall), a large recreation/family room, a full bathroom, and a bedroom that has an entry point to the home's outdoor space. A dedicated laundry room, second refrigerator, and separate storage area round out the amenities to be discovered within the home's four walls.

Outside, enjoy a beautifully landscaped backyard where flowering plants, heritage tree, views of Rock Creek Park, and natural charm converge. To help you make the most of your open-air oasis, there's also a sprawling deck -- the perfect backdrop for intimate dinners and social gatherings alike. And last but not least: A detached garage currently used for storage and workshop and a protracted driveway that has room for 7 extra vehicles accommodates family and friends for special gatherings.

Perched in the Northwest quadrant of DC, 16th Street Heights is known for its tranquil, tree-lined pathways, small-town atmosphere, and connection to Downtown. And then there's the iconic Rock Creek Park, an urban paradise that promises more than 2,000 acres of recreational opportunities, including hiking trails, equestrian stables, and Carter Baron Tennis Courts and Amphitheatre. Close by are Whole Foods, restaurants and outdoor offerings at Walter Reed and many memorable restaurants along Connecticut Ave. A home that intuitively blends the best of both worlds, 5920 16th Street NW makes it easier than ever to live city life on your terms.
