Located on a corner lot at 1716 New Hampshire Avenue NW, this ornate Dupont Circle home recently sold for $3,275,000, which was $500,000 more than the list price. The home dates to 1910, when it was designed by Clark Waggaman, the Washington architect behind a series of classic properties on New Hampshire Avenue NW. The interior includes numerous French doors, six fireplaces (one is limestone), and intricate details, including moldings and cornice.

In the grand entrance hall, there is a winding three-story staircase made in part of wrought iron overlaid with gold leaf. Hardwood floors are found throughout, while the library boasts ceiling beams and mahogany bookshelves. The home is registered with the National Historic Trust, according to the listing team. It features an attached garage and landscaped grounds.

The home is near the Dupont Circle Metro station in addition to restaurants on Connecticut Avenue and on 17th and 14th streets NW. Meredith Margolis and Jennifer Touchette (of The P&rtners) were the listing team; Mark McFadden (of McFadden Partners) repped the buyers.
