Discreetly veiled by ivy and a majestic magnolia tree, Brooke House presides prominently over Upper Georgetown from one of the finest locations in Washington. Once a part of the neighboring Evermay Estate and former home to Senator Ted Kennedy, the original property dates to 1887. Behind the home, formal gardens yield to views of the magnificent grounds of Evermay, one of the most important gardens in the city. The scale and quality of Brooke House is exceptional for Georgetown. The original residence was joined by an impressive addition in the 1950's. Under the talented guidance of Christian Zapatka, this home was recently reimagined and renovated while retaining its Edwardian elegance. Guests to Brooke House are greeted by a generous reception hall with classic marble flooring. Adjoining the reception hall, the formal living room is graced with walnut parquet flooring, high ceilings, a fireplace, and a wall of French doors and windows overlooking a bubbling fountain in the center of the courtyard. Beyond the formal living room, an elegant floating staircase with wrought iron and lacquered railing invites the eye upward, while the view down the main hall reveals an inviting breakfast room, family room and chef's kitchen. Also on the main level, a paneled study is encased with solid mahogany, featuring coffered ceilings and generous bookshelves. The garden is accessible through walls of French doors from both the family and living rooms offering a serene and private escape consisting of boxwood terraces, mature plantings, a pergola for outdoor dining, and a peaceful lily pond which ties the outdoor expanse to the adjacent grounds of Evermay.The master suite occupies the entire second level of the residence, providing a luxurious and private escape. Boasting his and hers dressing rooms and a spectacular master bathroom, the dimensions and detail create the effect of a personal spa. The marble and limestone detailing runs full height to enhance the timeless feeling of the space, while the luminous fixtures, all from Waterworks, further the effect. In addition to the master suite, the family quarters include 7 bedrooms with en-suite baths. Downstairs, a richly paneled billiard room, generous wine cellar, and additional service rooms lead to a motor-court accommodating parking for eleven cars, a true rarity even in Georgetown's prestigious East Village. Completely renovated to the highest global standard with no detail overlooked, the estate and its grounds reaffirm the grace of the Federal period. Unquestionably, Brooke House is firmly positioned for the 21st century to maintain its heritage as one of the great estate homes of Washington DC.
