This stunning home in the Kent / Palisades neighborhood of NW DC was designed by architect John Christian in 1985 (replacing the original 1923 structure) and has striking features and so much to write home about. 5521 Hawthorne Place NW is perched nicely above street level and boasts beautiful sunsets from the primary suite’s front facing balcony. An abundance of windows throughout allows natural light to flood the interior and highlight the home's spacious layout while preserving privacy and beautiful views of foliage from every perspective. This unique home has a traditional, contemporary style with subtle notes of mid-century modern. Modern touches are seen in the front to back site lines in the kitchen pass throughs using geometric motifs. An eye-catching fireplace mantel with a domed black stone centers nicely in the minimalist dining storage cabinets. A spacious chef’s kitchen will delight serious cooks and weekend dabblers alike.
