Another Day, Another Piece Of History

On Monday it was a house on Cooke's Row built by Cooke himself that got all the attention. Today it is a house on Cox's Row, built by Colonel John Cox. He is listed as being Georgetown's mayor from 1823-1845 (back when Georgetown had its own mayor) and he left his builder's mark on a number of Georgetown homes. This almighty stunner is a six bed, nine bath rowhouse with proof of its 1805 birthday in the eight fireplaces throughout the home. Modern touches include a terrace for parking and that contemporary-esque checkerboard patio, plus a swanky kitchen. Asking price for the almost-8,000 square foot home is $7,900,000.
