INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY for new construction in the District’s A+ neighborhood of Wesley Heights. Built by the highly sought after and acclaimed builder ZANTZINGER. Award-winning design from Wouter Boer Architects that celebrates tailored, clean lines and the integration of indoor and outdoor spaces. Overlooking Battery Kemble park, this fully custom, 6 BR home is surrounded by a lush tree canopy that provides both extraordinary views as well as tremendous privacy. Sited on just under an acre of land, 4640 combines sumptuous materials and amenities with exacting design and construction. Rich details include flush mounted, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, exotic teak paneling, cabinetry and floating walls, imported marbles and stone, Waterworks hardware, SubZero, Miele, Wolf and Bosch appliances, and Level 5 plaster wall and ceiling finish, a 40′ x 17′ saltwater pool with infinity-edge and 1000 bottle capacity, glass-walled wine room. A detailed automation package provides control over every element of home operation – lighting, audio, visual, security and window treatments. An elevator services all four levels. The classically-proportioned, smooth stucco exterior is framed by tailored green roofs, limestone lintels and capstones. A dramatic entry foyer is dominated by a two-story floating steel and glass staircase. Radiant-heated limestone flooring and 10 ft+ ceilings continue throughout the main level. An open concept Living/Dining Room sets the stage for extravagant entertaining and one of the most incredible park views in the city. Flanked by a more intimate Library with extensive built ins and a Family Room with two-sided fireplace and floor to ceiling windows on three sides. Adjoining the family room is the fabulous gourmet kitchen with Calacatta Cavelano counters, top of the line appliances and custom teak cabinetry. A sliding glass wall opens the kitchen to a limestone terrace for seamless indoor/outdoor flow. An oversized pantry/catering kitchen and one of two home offices complete the Main Level. The upper level includes four bedroom suites. The owner’s suite features a private balcony, fabulous marble and limestone bath with soaking tub, dressing closet and secondary laundry facilities. A show stopping 3rd floor office with floor to ceiling glass on three sides accesses a large, private terrace providing expansive vistas. The spectacular pool terrace level includes a large recreation space with 1000 bottle capacity, glass-walled wine room and full wet bar, an exercise room with walls of windows overlooking the pool and park, and a full spa with luxurious marble steam and dry sauna. Two bedroom suites provide additional guest and/or staff space. No detail has been spared in presenting this sleek, fully custom, and exquisitely rendered residence. Minutes from Georgetown, downtown and the many attractions of the Nation’s capital, as well as the best independent schools. 4640 Cathedral gracefully combines simplicity and grandeur, defining a new generation of luxury.
