Hornblower Marshall, the architectural firm behind The Phillips Collection, the Duncan Phillips House, and the National Museum of Natural History, is also behind the construction of this circa 1897-built Dupont Circle residence. When it first landed on the market in November 2016, it listed for $4.95 million. After a price chop in September 2017 lowered the home to $4.5 million, the property still had to decrease a little more in cost in order to sell for $4.1 million.

Inside the five-level home, there are multiple fireplaces, built-ins, and two separate two-bedroom apartments with parking and a rooftop garden. There is also a “secret room” behind one of the bookcases. A private garden and two off-street parking spaces are included.

With 8,200 square feet of space, this residence offers seven bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms
