Asking $7.9 million, this single-family home is currently one of the 10 most expensive listings for sale in Washington, D.C. It is also one of the only homes for sale in the District designed or renovated by a famous architect.
Architect George Totten designed this Beaux Arts townhouse in 1907. Totten is also known for designing the Embassy of Ecuador at 2535 15th Street NW and the "Pink Palace" at 2600 16th Street NW.
Recently, award-winning D.C.-based architect Christian Zapatka renovated the property in three phases with master builder John McAlpine. When this property was first listed in June 2015, it didn’t have any photos inside the home as it was still undergoing renovations. Now, homebuyers can get an inside look.
Spanning approximately 9,000 square feet, the property offers five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms. There are beamed ceilings and multiple fireplaces inside along with decorative fluted columns. In the kitchen, there is a spacious island with a built-in sink and stainless steel appliances.
The listing agents are Richard Newton and John Adler, Jr. of Washington Fine Properties.
