The bones of the 7,175-square-foot federal-style townhouse at 3327 N Street NW in Georgetown date from around 1817, when a merchant and later Georgetown mayor, John Cox, built it.
The five-story pile retains some of that provenance in details such as the woodworking and the half-dozen fireplaces. And the tile in the garden room comes via a renovation of the White House in the 19th century (and there’s a garden room).
The house also has a half-dozen full bathrooms—and three half-baths—as well as five bedrooms. There’s a double parlor and an elevator to four of the five levels. The spread comes with six parking spots too—four garage—and a fish pond out back.
Given this scope, the history, and the location, No. 3327 N does not come cheap: It’s asking $6.5 million through Long & Foster. Take a look.
