This airy five-bedroom home at 2810 University Terrace NW in leafy Palisades recently hit the market for $2,750,000. “The home is perched on a hill and captures an abundance of natural sunlight,” the listing points out. The rooms on the main level have 10-foot ceilings.

There are five full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. The foyer is shaped like an oval and made of limestone. Windows abound in the the formal dining room, which has a fireplace, and the kitchen comes with quartz counters, custom cabinets, limestone flooring, chef’s-grade appliances, two pantries, and two dishwashers. A breakfast room is adjacent to the kitchen, as is a family room that has a fireplace, a wet bar, and doors that lead to a terrace.

An elevator connects all floors of the house. The master suite on the second level includes an expansive walk-in closet and a bathroom with two vanities, a tub, and a shower. Upstairs on the third level are additional rooms that a purchaser could use for family space or an office.

The lower level features a family room with a fireplace, a bar, and French doors that go to a side terrace, in addition to a media room, a laundry room, and a bedroom. The main terrace at the back of the house is made of stone and sits on top of a garage that can fit two vehicles.

Within walking distance of the house are stores and restaurants on MacArthur Boulevard. The property last sold in 2005 for $1,375,000, according to public records. The lot is about 5,600 square feet. Michael Rankin of TTR Sotehby’s International Realty is the listing agent.
