A Romanesque Revival residence in Kalorama just hit the market. Priced at $8.9 million, the 7,500-square-foot, 1905 mansion has been updated but retains classic elements such as moldings, pocket doors and its original arched-front vestibule. Modern touches include a marble-slab fireplace in the family room and a marble-clad owners’ bath with a frameless-glass shower. The all-white kitchen features custom cabinetry. The six-bedroom, eight-bath home encompasses three levels, plus a finished basement housing a media room, gym, in-law suite and wine cellar. The terraced property boasts a fire pit, built-in grilling station, pergola and fountain.
1823 Phelps Place, NW.
