The existing property is located in a highly desirbale DC neighborhood near American University. The existing house is attractive side entry colonial on a very deep lot. On the norht side of the house is a later addition with a very narrow single car garage at grade and windowless facade facing the street. The value of the house is limited by the lack of parking.
Our solution was to eliminate the existing addition, allowing for a side driveway which leads to a large 2 car, story story garage with an in-law suite above.We have also provided a large rear addition containging a family room on the 1st floor and a new master suite on the 2nd. Connecting the new addition to the new garage is a glass walled conservatory. By tucking the new addtion along the side property line we were able to provide room for a large terrace and swimming pool.
