New, 3 comments

Carriage house, cobble stone courtyard, and off-street parking included

This restored early 1800s home is up for grabs in Washington, D.C.’s Georgetown neighborhood. It offers a separate two-story carriage house with an additional bedroom, two bathrooms, and a kitchen. There is also enough room for two cars in the off-street parking spaces.

In the main home, there are two bedrooms and three bathrooms across roughly 2,000 square feet of space. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and an island with a breakfast bar.

On the property, there is also a plaque that indicates that the structure has been recorded by the Historic American Buildings Survey of the United States Department of the Interior for its archives at the Library of Congress. Begun in 1933, the Historic American Buildings Survey is the nation's first federal preservation program with the intent to document America's architectural heritage.

UPDATE: A Long & Foster press release goes into further detail about the historical prominence of this home, as seen below:

Constructed between 1805 and 1808, the Bussard-Newman House is one of few remaining in the area that was used as a combination of residence and small business. Before the street was renamed, the home’s original address was 38 Fayette Street. The original structure was a single-story frame house and by 1847 a second story was added. In 1920, central heating was installed in the property.

Daniel Bussard purchased the north half of the lot, likely without a structure on it, for $100 in 1805 and in 1808 he purchased the south half for $300. Bussard was a well-known citizen in Georgetown and was a land developer who owned a number of properties in the area. In addition, he owned and operated a brewery, a tannery and a distillery. The property has been a number of things throughout the years, including the home and business of a butcher and a confectioner as well as a residential rental property.

This listing can be had for $3.15 million. For more photos inside, check out the photo gallery below.
