This property is built to entertain and not like any other.
A private home for everyday living, a gathering place for friends and celebrations...
Host dinner parties with dozens of friends on your 630-square-foot covered terrace, featuring eight three-story-tall historic Greek Revival columns. Or watch the snow fall, birds fly by, or time pass in your turret in the sky overlooking a protected wooded forest glen that abuts Rock Creek Park.
These are all memories that await you in the Music Hall at National Park Seminary. This space, once the location where students took their music lessons when National Park Seminary was an elite boarding school for young women, still features many of the historic elements that have made it a magical space for almost a century.
These features include 22-foot-high coved ceilings, which were originally designed to highlight the acoustics of students music lessons and still enhance any live musical performance or just an evening of listening to music at home. The unit also includes a six-foot-tall historic statue of Greek mythology character Andromeda, perched high up on a shelf overlooking the main living and entertaining space.
This home, The Music Hall, is on the top level of a private, semi-detached wing of the Main condominium building complex, with only one other unit below, and it has windows on three sides. The main space features a combined living room, dining room, and grand hall that covers more than 1,600 square feet, ideal for entertaining.
On the main level, you will also find a dining area with a coved ceiling that opens up to the kitchen with expansive granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and ample storage in custom cherry cabinetry. The exterior wall of the grand hallway is lined with seven 10-foot tall historic Palladian windows that serve as perfect picture frames for historic columns on the terrace and the greenery beyond.
Two spacious bedrooms with coved ceilings on the main level include an elegant primary bedroom featuring a large walk-in closet and ensuite bath. Both bedrooms include spacious closets, including a walk-in closet in the primary bedroom. Convenience is at its best with a stacked washer and dryer near the primary bedroom.
