2525 32ND STREET SE, WASHINGTON, DC 20020
Welcome to Hillcrest’s Art Deco Grande Dame! 2525 32nd St SE was built by an Italian-immigrant stonemason for his family and was one of the first homes in the neighborhood. His artistry is reflected in the soaring arches of the double-height living room replete with gorgeous plaster crown molding and hidden cove lighting. The luminescent dining room still has the original 1920’s crystal chandelier and oversized windows. The renovated kitchen boasts butcher block countertops with a crisp white backsplash, new appliances, and extensive storage space. The large primary bedroom has an updated ensuite bathroom that blends the original 1920’s tile with modern convenience. Two more oversized bedrooms - one with an attached sun porch – round out the first floor of the family wing while, on the second floor, there is a beautiful arched bedroom/family room with a reading nook and large walk-in closet. A fully renovated hall bathroom with a touch of modern flair service the main bedrooms. The lower level is bright and cheery, with a huge family room, an amazingly intricate original stone mosaic floor in the bonus room, tons of storage in the laundry room, and access to the garage. The exterior of the home is evocative of a grand Mediterranean villa with plaster stucco and terracotta roof tiles. Sitting on a double lot, the backyard and side yards are enormous, with multiple terraces, a screened-in back porch, and an outdoor fireplace. This home is absolutely stunning and almost 5000 finished sq ft! Hillcrest residents enjoy the suburban feel of the tree-lined streets with wide sidewalks while benefitting from easy access to the Suitland Parkway, Pennsylvania Avenue, Highways 295 and 495, and the Green Line via the Naylor Road Metroline Station.
