This is captivating, this is real, this is 1611 Marion St NW. Known as the Marilyn Monroe house for local artist, Ivo Koytchev's famous wall mural. Truly an OMG moment suitable for social media. This 2BR/2BA residence is a rare gem, boasting a first-time offering to the market in nearly four decades.
Prepare to be swept off your feet by the thoughtful redesign that has transformed this dwelling into a work of art. With 1690sf of living space on the main and 2nd level and an additional 845sf in the full-height unfinished basement, this home exudes style and offers room for your final touches. The hardwood floors, laid at an angle, lead you from the living room to the dining room, where a starburst chandelier adorns the ceiling, set on a period medallion. The gas fireplace is instant ambiance. It's like walking into a stylish time machine!
The kitchen is a true masterpiece, featuring a huge center island that accommodates an under-cabinet washer and dryer, offering the convenience of multitasking. Lighted wall cabinets, a nook with a desk, pull-out shelves, and a secret hideaway drawer add to the allure of this space. It's so chic, even the appliances have serious style envy.
As you ascend to the second level, be greeted by dramatically high ceilings and a skylight that bathes the house in natural light during the day. By night there's the period chandelier that will light your way. The primary suite is a luxurious retreat, overlooking Marion Street and DC's famous ginkgo trees. The ensuite bath boasts radiant floors and a walk-in shower with a rainhead shower system. It's like having your own spa retreat, right at home. An additional brand-new hall bath is ready to impress.
Beyond the interior, the backyard is a tranquil oasis, featuring a screened-in porch that overlooks a meticulously curated garden and a serene Koi pond. It's the perfect spot to sip your morning coffee and contemplate life's great mysteries.
Don't miss the chance to make this exceptional property your own and experience the epitome of urban living in Washington, DC. This home is so fabulous; it'll make you want to break into song and dance.
If it matters, and I think it does. . . the roof is BRAND NEW and so is the water heater. There I said it.
