Rare opportunity to own this unique 1922 Tuscan Villa nestled on a secluded lot in the Hillandale Community. The former Gatehouse to the Archbold Estate was lovingly restored to perfection by the renowned designer and former owner, Thomas Pheasant. Filled with light filtered through 3 sets of French doors surrounded by lush landscaping, this home offers a romantic escape with all the amenities of Georgetown at your fingertips. Multiple private terraces surrounded by artfully illuminated vegetation provide the perfect venue for alfresco dinner parties. The open floor plan provides wonderful flow from the dining room to the living area and pocket doors provide privacy from the gourmet efficiency kitchen. A half bath and separate laundry room are also conveniently located on the main level. The upper-level bedrooms have extensive built-ins with ample closets and storage with no expense spared on the accompanying baths. A hideaway balcony offers a perfect escape for a quiet moment. A separate storage room offers ample room for all those necessary household items and sporting equipment. Custom plantation shutters throughout offer plenty of privacy. From the hardwood floors, the custom hardware throughout, the decorative stairwell, and the clever use of space, no detail was spared on this charming villa. All tucked away in the safety and security of a 24 hour gated community with tennis courts and one of the most luxurious community pools in D.C.
