Nestled on a coveted cherry blossom-lined street of American University Park, this gorgeous property emerges as a beacon of luxury living. Constructed in 2020, it offers an unparalleled blend of sophistication comfort, and timeless elegance.

Located at 4220 Van Ness Street in Washington, D.C., the property is conveniently situated just five miles from downtown D.C. This over 8000 square foot home, with seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and one half bathroom is listed by Kara Chaffin Donofrio with the McLean office of Long & Foster Real Estate, exclusive member of Forbes Global Properties and is offered for $4.595M.

“This home is warm and welcoming on nearly a quarter acre with the Japanese Ambassador’s Residence as a close neighbor,” said Chaffin Donofrio. “The location and neighborhood is truly ideal – close to many schools and is walkable to the Metro, American University, local coffee shops and restaurants.”

Arriving at the property, you’ll first notice its stately appearance, well-manicured landscaping, and custom-paved driveway with ample parking for your guests.

You’ll greet your guests in style in the foyer with enticing views of the first-floor rooms featuring intricate crown molding, wainscoting, and arched thresholds, creating an ambiance of refined elegance. Strategically placed windows and white reflective trim allow natural light to flood the rooms, showcasing the gleaming hardwood flooring and accent features.

It will be easy to cook for a crowd or have your catering team prepare a meal in the chef’s kitchen, with its Carrara marble countertops, stainless steel gourmet appliances, and Wolf six-burner-plus-griddle gas range with dual electric ovens.

The kitchen seamlessly flows into the adjoining breakfast room and family room with a charming corner fireplace. In warm weather, open doors to the family room to extend your party onto the deck with a pergola and ceiling fan to enjoy views of the picturesque backyard.

Your family celebrations and dinner parties will be remembered in the light-filled dining room with gorgeous custom molding and built-in cabinetry. For quiet time or to work remotely, there is an American Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant first-floor office with an adjoining full bathroom, which could be used as a bedroom, adding convenience and versatility to the layout.

Upstairs, discover a luxurious primary owner’s suite with a private balcony and a spa-like bathroom with designer marble and heated floors. Three additional bedrooms offer ample space and privacy, with the third level providing an open space with two bedrooms, and a full bathroom, which could be used as an art or yoga studio, playroom, or additional living space.

The lower level of the home offers a large entertainment space and a fully-equipped kitchen, ideal for hosting gatherings. A separate bedroom with a full bathroom provides guests or family members with a private retreat. An au pair suite/guest apartment above the spacious two-car garage offers vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, Carrara marble counters, and a balcony.
