About the Property…

Space. Light. Style. Views. Sophisticated design, clean lines, timeless surfaces, open living level, sunlit garden, and a private roof deck with expansive views… 326 Monroe is an extraordinary opportunity for exceptional urban living. Located off a quiet, tree-lined block in Queen Village, you will enter into a sunlit oasis designed by Christopher Dowds and built by Osborne Construction. A spacious seating area welcomes you as your eye is drawn beyond it to the sliding glass doors that open onto a private slate patio. Adjacent to the patio is a larger outdoor area offering opportunities for serious gardening or more hardscaping to create additional entertaining space. Back inside, the seating area connects to the garage through a hallway that is highlighted by a large window with a window seat overlooking the garden. Additionally, there is a built-in console for your mail and key drops and an adjacent powder room. Up the floating white oak and white painted steel staircase, you will arrive at an unparalleled expansive living level. White oak adorns the floors and sections of the ceiling and an accent wall. Eight windows drench the area in light. This space is anchored by a long Carrara marble kitchen island visually backed by a continuous Carrara marble backsplash, surmounted by an uninterrupted line of minimalist white cabinetry including a concealed range exhaust hood. The extensive cabinetry runs the entire length of the wall providing ample storage. High-end appliances and fixtures will make your cooking and cleanup a pleasure. Opposite the island is a spacious dining area with ample room for dinner parties and family gatherings. The generous living area is highlighted by a wall of vertical white oak beadboard and runs the length of the property, with windows framing the beautiful tree canopy above Monroe Street. One flight up and along a hallway lined with another large picture window, further illuminated by a skylight at the hallway’s end, you will find 3 bedrooms and two baths smartly consolidated onto one floor. The owners’ suite is placed in the rear of the house and offers a quiet respite with views of trees and the southern sky. Adjacent is an ensuite bath with a subway tiled walk-in shower, offset by black tile flooring and a wood-paneled floating vanity. Two additional bedrooms (or offices) line the front side of the home on opposite sides of the hallway, off of which is a beautifully designed hall bath, next to a washer/dryer closet. One flight up you will find a very well-designed roof deck offering extraordinary city views, and an area spacious enough to accommodate all of the lounging and entertaining you have in mind. The finished basement is a blank canvas for you to personalize. Whether you are looking for a media room, a gym, a playroom, a home office, or a studio, the space is ready for you to make it your own. Giving the rich history and architecture of Queen Village, the proximity to some of the cities finest independent shops, including Paradigm, Walter Pine, Bus Stop, Moon and Arrow, and Brickbat Books, along with walkability to innumerable fine cafes and restaurants, and being within the Meredith Elementary Catchment, one could not ask for a more charming and engaging location. Space. Light. Style. Location. 326 Monroe has it all waiting for you.
