Located a couple of blocks south of the National Cathedral, this five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom stunner with Spanish colonial architecture and multiple French doors is now on the market for $3,675,000.

The 5,100-square-foot house at 3600 Massachusetts Ave. NW was built in the 1920s and was recently renovated. It is a few blocks up the avenue from the U.S. Naval Observatory that gives the leafy neighborhood, Observatory Circle, its name.

The listing agents say the property is “perfect for indoor-outdoor entertaining” given its open-floor plan and multiple patios, including one in the front that comes with a hot tub and is surrounded by landscaping. The main floor boasts a sunroom, a family room, and a formal living room that has a gas fireplace and three sets of French doors.

The home is on a corner lot and has a two-car garage and a driveway. The en-suite master bathroom is decked out with a heated marble floor, a stand-alone bathtub, a glass shower with a “rain fall” shower-head in the ceiling, custom cabinets, and a beverage cooler.

The property last sold in 2015 for $1,800,000, per public records. It has a basement with wall mirrors that can be used as a workout space.

The home is part of Washington Fine Properties’ “Private Placement Program – All Brokers Honored.” Sarah Howard and HRL Partners—Robert Hryniewicki, Adam T. Rackliffe, and Christopher R. Leary—are the listing agents.
