On one of Kensington’s best blocks, this 1912 former rectory is now one of the area’s most interesting and appealing residences. With exposed brick and stone walls, fabulously high ceilings for great volume, hardwood floors and walls perfect for the art collector, Parish House is itself like a work of art. Every update added to this to the structure during its restoration was chosen to fit the original materials, giving the entire space an organic feel, from the custom steel and oak stairwell to the custom Pella Architect Series windows to the polished concrete kitchen countertops, green roof deck and many additional features. The Tudor-arched front door opens to a dramatic, step-up, open main living space, airy and open. Beyond, through a wide doorway with exposed steel beam, is a well-designed kitchen with high ceilings, skylit dining area, stainless appliances, an undermount sink, hidden refrigerator, pantry and timeless finishes. Entertain a crowd with ease on this first floor. Upstairs, a large landing leads to three expansive bedrooms and a roof deck. Each bedroom has generous closet space. The hall bath serving two bedrooms showcases marble, wood wainscoting and tile along with a custom, slate-topped vanity. The main suite is a true refuge with a walk-in closet, skylights and access to the greenery-lined roof deck as beautiful as any in the city. The main suite bath is outfitted with a custom double vanity with wall-mounted faucets, a soaking tub and frameless glass shower, all accented by tile wainscoting, Moroccan-influenced floor tile and a pretty chandelier. As a bonus, the lower level is finished and serves as a fun space for watching television, relaxation, studying, home office. It includes a powder room. There are two zones of HVAC, a video intercom, Sonos sound system and smart-home controls for HVAC and security. For the buyer seeking one of the finest examples of adaptive reuse in the city, look no further than Parish House.
