    Description

    Welcome to The Ontario - "The Grande Dame of Adams Morgan" - a magnificent Pre-War Beaux-Arts luxury apartment house constructed in 1904 under the aegis of noted Washington architect James G. Hill. Supremely sited on three acres of park-like setting, The Ontario is nestled in the heart of eclectic Adams Morgan, one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the nation's capital. Numerous Washington dignitaries have called The Ontario home, among them General Douglas MacArthur and Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein. ------ Upon entering the massive wrought-iron clad doors visitors are greeted by an elegantly appointed lobby that's sure to impress. Sweeping arched doorways and six-foot high marble wainscoting meet marble chip terrazzo floors lined with a Greek key mosaic tile border. Original brass mailboxes shine as bright as the day they were first installed more than 100 years ago. An elaborate wrought iron public staircase compliments wood-paneled elevators. A richly decorated parlor welcomes guests in style. And that's just the lobby! ------ Ascend to the third floor of this six-story architectural treasure and you're steps away from a rare opportunity. The faded glory of Unit 304 awaits the vision of its next fortunate owner. This home is ripe with possibilities of improvements and is priced to provide instant equity from a thoughtful and complete restoration. ------ Rediscover the historic details that abound in this home -- The spacious living room with voluminous 10' ceilings, original plaster crown moldings and original Victorian fireplace featuring an exquisite 4.5ft. high mantel and cast iron hearth emblazoned with a torch & leaf design. The living room opens to the large dining room through original pocket doors. The large dining room features two vintage leaded glass built in corner hutches. The formal foyer, heart-pine floors throughout, exposed woodwork, substantial moldings, transoms with brass hardware, windows in every room and other sublime details recall all the elegance of the era in which they were designed. This premier residence is awash in sunlight thanks to grand six-foot high windows and predominantly southern exposures. This west-facing unit enjoys charming streetscape views. ------The kitchen was previously updated with quartz counters but could be redone to add full cabinetry and even a washer/dryer, which are allowed by the building pending board approval. A preservationist~s dream, the vintage bathroom has been preserved for 115 years and still features original hexagon floor tile, 4ft. high white bathroom subway tile wainscoting with decorative egg and dart border tile, original Carrera marble vanity, claw foot tub, built-in medicine cabinet and transom. ------The building provides residents with on-site waitlist parking for between $75 and $115 per month , front desk service from 7am-11pm Monday-Friday and 24-hours from Friday morning until Monday evening, roof deck, a ~summer house~ gazebo, guest parking, extra storage bin (7 ft. deep, 4 ft. wide and 8 ft. 10in. high), a social room with billiards table, an assembly room for large parties, an herb garden, bicycle storage, multiple elevators, on-site building manager and more! The building provides a laundry room, but allows residents to install washer/dryer in units. The building welcomes pets, including dogs, with board approval. Central air conditioning may be installed with board approval.Once a turn-of-the-century rural retreat, the area now boasts some of the city's best restaurants (including Michelin-Star Tail Up Goat) and nightlife. Here you can enjoy old world elegance less than two blocks from all the action of this hip neighborhood. Additionally, Woodley Park and Columbia Heights are within walking distance and both neighborhoods have Metro stations. Rock Creek Park and the National Zoo are just around the corner and downtown DC is only minutes away.
