Situated on 6.7 acres of mature gardens and tree covered grounds, this Mediterranean style villa offers the best of both privacy and accessibility, with interior spaces inviting both grandeur and cozy family life. A graceful circular driveway leads arrivals through a tree lined fence and gated entry to reveal the lovely terra cotta roofing of this estate, built in 1925. Most recently the home of the Swedish Ambassador, this residence is ideal as a cozy retreat by the hearth or for diplomatic calibre entertaining. Surrounded by the desirable American University Park neighborhood and adjacent to Spring Valley, the location is close to high quality grocery and dining offerings, including local favorites Wagshal's Market and Millie's Restaurant, and a mere 20 minutes to Reagan National Airport. Featuring seven bedrooms, seven full and two half baths, family and friends are easily and comfortably accommodated in these expansive and spacious rooms, which feature gorgeous hardwood floors and large light filled windows. The commercial grade kitchen is ideal for large scale entertaining, as is the wing provided for support staff. A formal library, ballroom and paved terraces provide the stateliness requisite for such events. With almost 7 acres of green space and wooded areas comprising the grounds, the property offers the potential for a wide variety of activities. A lit tennis court is ready made for sports enthusiasts, while the desirable location makes sale and development of the acreage a lucrative opportunity for the future.
