The remodel of this Washington, D.C., home in the city's Cleveland Park neighborhood added 4,000-square-foot, which boosted the listing price by almost $2 million, reports Michele Lerner for the Washington Post.

The traditional 1940s home received a contemporary addition with large and narrow panes of glass that took the home's total living space to 6,000 square feet. The home was also completely renovated--everything from the windows to the flooring and roofing was replaced.

The main level includes an open living, dining and family room with walls of windows and glass doors and a gas fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling marble surround. This level also has a home office and a center island kitchen and breakfast area with Italian cabinets, upgraded appliances and Silestone counters. Adjacent to the kitchen and living area is a large slate patio with room for large parties. The first of two upper levels has a master bedroom with cathedral ceilings, a walk-in closet and a bathroom with a soaking tub and a glass-enclosed shower. This level has two more bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet and a private full bath. The upper level has another bedroom and full bath, a sitting room and a loft, plus access to attic storage. The lower level includes a guest suite with a full bathroom and a wet bar, plus a family room.

The house sold in 2014 for $855,000, but is now listed for $2.795 million.
