House of the week: Jan. 12

This week’s home is a five-bedroom townhouse nestled in the Kalorama neighborhood of Northwest Washington. The house, built in 1905, served as a boarding home for 60 years and will be featured on an upcoming episode of A&E’s “Celebrity House Hunters,”according to the listing agent.

The property, located at 2126 R St. NW, has been completely gutted and rebuilt, save for some details, such as the exposed brick walls, a skylight and a staircase at the back of the house.

“It’s very traditional in some ways and more modern in others,” said Robin Waugh of Sotheby’s. “The house is a beautiful mix of old and new.”

Among its hightlights: 67 windows, four fireplaces, a private elevator and a rooftop deck with what Waugh calls “tippy top views of the Washington Monument.”

About a month ago, crews from “Celebrity House Hunters” filmed Baltimore-based rapper Biz Markie , who lives in Baltimore and is looking to buy a place in the Washington area. He toured the property recently. The episide will air in March, Waugh said.

The house is on the market for $3.19 million.
