Showings by appointment only. Historic home in the heart of Dupont Circle. The home was constructed of stunning tan limestone in 1910, by noted Washington architect, Clark Waggaman, for the niece of President Van Buren. It is a superb example of the Louis XV style balanced skillfully with Louis XVI details. The principal chambers, the entrance vestibule, stair hall, drawing room, reception and dining rooms are all connected by glazed ~French~ doors. The same hardware, architraves, moldings, overdoors and elaborate cornice are consistent throughout. Grand entrance hall features a three-story staircase accented by the original wrought iron balustrade overlaid with gold leaf. Drawing room baseboards and Louis XVI mantle in Sienna marble. Dining Room features a Louis XVI faux marble fireplace (one of six in the home). Elegant library in the French Renaissance style with beamed ceiling, and features Phillipine mahogany bookcases and a floor to ceiling limestone fireplace. Exquisitely renovated and thoughtfully preserved home registered with the National Historic Trust. Beautifully maintained front garden parkway, hedged to the property line, with in-ground irrigation and watering system. Secret staircase from the basement leading to the front receiving hall. Convenient attached garage with interior entry. Within walking distance of all that Dupont Circle has to offer!
