While Crestwood is known primarily for its wealth of historical revival architectural styles, there are also an equal number of fine compositions that appeared during the neighborhoods second building boom. In the decade from 1950 to 1960, Crestwood introduced into its range a number of split-levels, split foyers, ramblers, and ranches which all fall under the rubric of "mid-century modern." Also referred to by its contemporary moniker "MCM, " these houses offer the luxury of an open floor plan, much in demand by contemporary buyers, plentiful natural light, picture windows, a surfeit of closet space, and finished basements and attics.Many of these homes also possess details from the last Colonial Revival period including solid wood shutters, oriel windows, pedimented door surrounds with fluted pilasters, Federal-style fenestrations, and interior moldings that suggest earlier styles. This transition between the second Colonial Revival movement and the newer styles is evident here. This c.1952 residence claims all of these fine features, in addition to a surprising amount of square footage, which is not suggested by its presence on Blagden Terrace. With almost 3, 720 square feet of finished living space, there is room for every activity and a commensurate amount of storage. Found on the first floor is an eat-in kitchen with views to Blagden Avenue below, a large separate laundry and mudroom, and a sitting room with fireplace. Access from the one-car garage is through the screened porch, which is a pleasant spot in any season of the year. The living room and dining room are all supplied with a generous amount of natural light, owing to the house~s north-south axial disposition. This floor also offers a library with built-in bookcases and an en suite bathroom. The second floor offers a large master suite with two bathrooms, one of which was recently renovated. Skylights help to illuminate the second master bathroom that comprises approximately 150 square feet. There is a balcony off the second bedroom, a third bedroom with walk-in closet, and a renovated hall bathroom. The fourth floor was originally built as living space and can be used as an additional bedroom, office, or other purpose given its spacious, open plan and plentiful storage space. The basement offers 13-foot ceilings that rival any ballroom. It was constructed as space for large-scale entertaining and still maintains its original wet bar and fireplace. Outfitted with knotty-pine paneling, still in impeccable condition, this second living room opens out to an outdoor living area with fireplace that is shaded by a canopy of trees in summer. This level also provides a separate utility room, office, and powder room. This residence only had two owners, which spared it from unsympathetic and unnecessary later additions. It is located on a beautifully wooded lot in a quiet corner of the neighborhood with easy access to Rock Creek Parkway, on a street where all of the houses create a neat, and even rhythm.
