1937 colonial renovated – spacious, light-filled rooms perfect for modern tastes

If you have upwards of $3.5 million, the folks Washington Fine Properties want to talk to you. There is a gorgeous colonial home in Washington D.C.’s Kent neighborhood. The house was built in 1937, but has been renovated and re-imagined so that, while it retains its original charm, it is now suited for modern tastes.
Thanks to the update, the house now has lots of large, spacious rooms that are perfect for entertaining. The house has seven bedrooms, five full baths and two half baths. There is even a basement apartment. The outside of the house is stunning in its simplicity. The structure itself is composed of brick that has been painted white. The windows have black shutters. 
The front of the home features a natural stone walkway and a well manicured lawn. It is surrounded by copper gutters. According to Crescent City Copper, a copper shutter installation service, copper gutters are ideal because they are incredibly durable, which is good since Gutter systems are put under a lot of stress whenever there is significant rainfall.   
While the gutters are functional, they also add curb appeal as they frame the home and contrast nicely with the classic black and white motif of the home’s exterior. 
The entrance to the house is eye-catching. It prepares you for what you’ll see in the house’s interior. The black front door is framed by windows. There are nice accents such as copper gutters and downspouts as well as lights outside that look like candles and windows that feature frosted lattice work.
Inside the house, the main dining area is pure Zen. It is a wide, open space that has lots of windows to let in natural light. Situated off to the side of the room is a balcony that is easily accessible via the room’s large French doors. 
The main dining room shares its space with a sitting room and a large kitchen island. It has hard floors, a crown moulded ceiling and skylights. 
The island in the great room has plenty of counter space and a natural stone top. It also has white wooden cabinets. A sink is built in to the island. There is a chef-size, stainless steel fridge, a professional stove and hood. Light fixtures overhang the island. The walls of the kitchen area are covered in natural stone as well.
Outside the great room and kitchen area, the deck awaits. It is spacious enough for deck furniture such as a love seat, table and chairs or anything else that you might need or want on your deck.
The house’s formal living room keeps to the white, purity motif. It has a fireplace surrounded by crown moulding, plenty of skylights, natural light from the windows and dark natural wood floors. 
The formal dining room is perfect for intimate, non casual meals. This room features crown moulding, natural hardwood floors, a fireplace, and a large window. 
The master bedroom is huge. It has plenty of room for a large, king size bed, chairs for sitting, and anything else you can imagine. You can see the treetops from this room thanks to its bevy of windows. It provides outside access to a balcony.  
The master bedroom is en suite. The master bathroom is decked out in natural stone. Even the floor and shower are tiled with marble slabs. The old-fashioned bathtub is a quaint throwback to the house’s age. The shower is separate from the bath tub. It’s a walk-in shower with a glass door. 
The second bedroom, like the master bedroom, has an exceptional view of the surrounding trees and balcony access. This room would be perfect for an adult or teen. 
The third bedroom has enough space for a queen size bed, night stands, a bookshelf and more. Size-wise it appears to be the same size as the second bedroom. The key difference is that instead of balcony access, it has framed windows.
The sixth bedroom also has an arched ceiling. It appears to be the second-largest bedroom in the house with room for a loveseat, coffee table and chairs. It has a high, three-paneled, framed window. 
This bathroom features a white tiled walls, built-in shelving and lots of light. 
The lower level family room is a part of the mother-in-law suite. It would make a great place to hang out with family and friends. It has a white, brick fireplace and skylights and windows that let lots of light in. 
The mother-in-law suite has its own kitchen. It’s not as massive as the house’s main kitchen, but this one is perfect for a single occupant. It’s a smaller kitchen with a refrigerator, dishwasher, adequate cabinet space and a sink.
The back of the house shows not only shows off more of the home’s character and charm, it also shows its rear elevation and more of the property’s grounds.
As far as colonial homes go, this one is a beauty. It is well-built, spacious, light-filled and located in a quiet community. All these features make it perfect for family life and entertaining.
