Hornblower Marshall, the same architectural firm behind The Phillips Collection, the Duncan Phillips House, and the National Museum of Natural History, was behind the construction of this circa 1897-constructed single-family home in Dupont Circle.
The property first landed on the market in November 2016 for $4.95 million and has recently experienced a price chop, lowering it down to $4.5 million. It last sold in July 1999 for $1.8 million, according to Redfin.
At the moment, this is the third most expensive listing in the Dupont Circle neighborhood, under this historic $7.9 million Beaux Arts townhome and this $5.5 million condo owned by arts patron Peggy Cooper Cafritz.
With 8,200 square feet of space, this residence offers seven bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms. Inside, there are five fireplaces, built-ins, two separate two-bedroom apartments, and a “secret room” behind one of the bookcases. A private garden and two off-street parking spaces are included. The five-level listing is within walking distance to the Dupont Circle Metro station.
The listing agent is Ingrid Suisman of Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc.
