Reminiscent of the stately Brownstones on Manhattan's ritzy Upper West Side, this classic Victorian townhome has been given a new life by renowned designer Nestor Santa-Cruz and totally renovated from top to bottom by the artistic hands of Fajen and Brown. Unmistakable curb appeal reveals a truly awe-inspiring interior after passing under the arched window capping the front door, spanning over 3,500 square feet of living space within which not an inch has been overlooked. White oak — arranged in a herringbone pattern throughout the main level and covering the railings of the grand staircase — graciously complements dark iron balusters and extensive custom millwork, curating an elegantly classic yet whimsically modern ambiance. The formal powder room, expertly placed, is a bold statement of moody sophistication, with its dark trim, monochrome floral wallpaper, and geometric marble tile. In contrast, the formal living room is warm and inviting, with its lighted bookcases framing a linear, marble-clad fireplace, and elegant chandelier nestling neatly into the bay window nook. Fully open-concept, the main level features a subtle dining area bridging the gap between living room and kitchen. Speaking of, this chef's dream boasts contrasting cabinetry, an expansive center island, built-in coffee bar, matching marble counters and backsplash, and the pièce de résistance: a La Cornue range — the ultimate symbol of culinary indulgence and sophistication. The family room lies beyond the kitchen, featuring built-in storage and a set of French doors leading onto the rear deck. A spacious mudroom area with family powder room is just off of the rear entrance and completes the main level. A stunning primary suite occupies the entire second level of the residence, and boasts a private, glass-doored office attached to the sleeping area. A private balcony over looks the rear terrace, and a true Sex and the City style dressing room connects to the primary bath. An oasis through and through, the dreamy bath is anchored by a cast-iron clawfoot soaking tub resting on mosaic floors. A broad marble vanity with dual sinks is backed by a stunning accent wall, and a walk-in steam shower showcases the Waterworks fixtures found throughout. The top level is capped by an oversized skylight allowing the sun to stream in. Three bedrooms and two stylish tiled baths offer an escape for children and guests alike. A unique feature of the home is the separate lower level unit, which is entirely self-sufficient with its own kitchen, bath, living area, and two bedrooms. Private entrances both front and rear create an income-generating opportunity. Out back, the IPE deck descends onto a spacious patio area which doubles as two-car secure parking. Behind the scenes, smartphone-controlled security cameras and a surrounding French drain system are a testament to the quality of construction. Merely blocks to Dupont Circle, the home is walkable to public transportation as well as some of the city's finest dining and nightlife. Spectacular inside and out with an unparalleled location, 1626 Riggs Place NW represents what is arguably one of the finest townhomes ever imagined in Washington.
