Wanna Buy It Wednesday: 2449 Tracy Place, NW, Washington, DC
Interior Design pioneer Eleanor McMillen Brown once said, "Taste is relative, but to be positive and vital it must respect the past, accept the present and look forward with enthusiasm to the future." I can't think of a home that encompasses this philosophy more than 2449 Tracy Place, NW.
This 6 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom Georgian Revival will grace you with its marble fireplaces, antique mantles and custom moldings. It was constructed in 1923 by the famous architect Waddy Butler Wood, who is remembered for his fondness of romantic and traditional architecture. The current owners recently renovated the residence in 2008 to incorporate modern amenities and decor. Paint colors and furniture are muted and understated giving off a contemporary vibe, while features like the claw foot tub and refinished hardwood floors add a traditional balance. This home was made for entertaining with a bright backyard and sun room, as well as a huge dining room. Currently, it's on the market for 3.995 million.
