Originally designed by neighborhood architect James McGill, this renovated 19th-century home in LeDroit Park will soon hit the market for $1,099,000. The Italianate farmhouse is one of the 64 LeDroit Park homes McGill worked on and features two bedrooms as well as 3.5 bathrooms. It was updated throughout in 2017 and has three decks, per the listing team.

The home, which is situated on a roughly 4,000-square-foot lot, comes with two driveways, including one with alley access and a gate. Both the front and rear yards are landscaped. The interior receives copious natural light. There are two brick fireplaces in the living space, plus hardwood floors and built-in shelves. The moldings and bannisters have been restored, and there are stained-glass panels on the main level. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances.

Each of the bedrooms has its own bathroom, and the master suite is equipped with an office nook. One of the home’s decks is on the second level. The property is in walking distance of Shaw, the U Street NW corridor, and Bloomingdale, and also directly across the street from the Park at LeDroit.
