Built into a steeply sloping lot within the Palisades neighborhood of northwest Washington DC, is this eclectic version of a traditional shingle style house. Four levels of generous interior living space have been sheltered behind walls of earthy stone and colorful cedar shingles. Direct entry into a two-car garage at the basement level provides convenient access to the mudroom and a dramatic 4-story sunlit stairwell. The first floor main living area overlooks the front street from a welcoming entry porch, while walk-out access to the rear yard is provided from the open Kitchen, Breakfast and Family room areas. In addition to four bedroom suites on the second floor, an elevator accessible attic level (with loft style living area) boasts a 5th bedroom suite.
