Just north of Dupont Circle, this red brick carriage house is on the market, renovated and with a long history that dates all the way back to 1890 when it was constructed. At one point, the space was used for horse stalls and later as a campaign office and call center for then-presidential candidate Michael Dukakis
The property was first listed on May 2017 for $1.45 million, but recently underwent a price chop, dropping it to $1,399,000. Inside the approximately 2,400-square-foot home, there are two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
The property comes with beamed ceilings and exposed brick walls as well as an air duct along the ceiling that has been painted what looks like a burnt sienna to match the woodsy tones throughout the home
With a big, blue paneled ceiling, the kitchen offers a big pop of color along with a light peach-colored tile backsplash. It was also updated with new cabinetry, travertine heated floors, and stainless steel appliances.
Other final need-to-know details include that the listing comes with built-ins, an outdoor patio, and an attached garage. Additionally, the restaurants and bars of both U Street NW and Dupont Circle are only a few blocks away.
The listing agent is Katrina Schymik Abjornson of Compass.
