Evoking the simplicity and elegance of mid-Century modern design, this outstanding new construction in Wesley Heights is the most exciting offering in the Washington, DC market. The first of three Zantzinger-built custom homes in a private enclave surrounded by national parkland, 4640 was developed, designed and built to cater to the most sophisticated and discerning 21st century buyer. The project - “Three on Cathedral” – combines the vision and talents of Developer Cliveden Group, Builder Zantzinger and Architect Wouter Boer.

Sited on just under an acre, 4640 Cathedral marries sumptuous materials and amenities with exacting design, construction, and engineering. A classically-proportioned, smooth stucco exterior is framed by tailored green roofs, limestone lintels and capstones. Indoor and outdoor spaces integrate seamlessly through floor to ceiling windows, skylights, and sliding glass panels. Terraces and balconies are accessed from every level. The tree canopy setting provides both magnificent vistas and consummate privacy.

The 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. Expansive walls of glass overlook the tree canopy, stream bed and spectacular, negative edge saltwater pool. Dramatic and open space is flanked by a more intimate Library with extensive built ins. A Family Room with fireplace and floor to ceiling windows on three sides adjoins the fabulous gourmet kitchen. With Calacatta Cavelano counters, top of the line appliances and custom teak cabinetry, the kitchen opens to a limestone terrace for seamless indoor/outdoor enjoyment. An oversized pantry/catering kitchen and one of two home offices complete the Main Level.

Custom details abound throughout - flush mounted, floor-to-ceiling 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 detailed home automation package provides control over every element of operation – lighting, audio, visual, security and window treatments. An elevator services all four levels.
The upper level includes four bedroom suites. The oversized master suite features a private balcony, fabulous marble and limestone bath with soaking tub, master 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 from Battery Kemble Park all the way to Crystal City. The spectacular pool terrace level provides access the 40’ x 17’ saltwater pool with infinity-edge. This level includes a large recreation space with 1000 bottle capacity, glass-walled wine room and full wet bar, as well as an exercise room with walls of windows overlooking the pool and park, 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.
