Elegant Dupont Circle Victorian Home with original details and updated for today’s living lifestyle. Designed by George S Cooper and built by John Nolan in 1885 – original details still remain throughout the home like the paneling on the first floor, fireplace mantles, and original hardwood floors throughout the top three floors. The home’s color palette and incredible woodwork is warm and inviting, yet the home has been thoughtfully updated through the years. The southern exposure at the front and large top floor skylight offer beautiful light through many of the rooms and staircase.
A gorgeous brick and stone facade greets you on a highly walkable block of north Dupont. Step into the vestibule before entering a lovely foyer with views of the grand staircase. The living room is to your left and the parlor is just ahead – the perfect entertaining space. The large dining room easily seats 8-10, surrounded by incredible original wood trims and original fireplace. The kitchen was renovated to the studs in 2015. The inset kitchen cabinets were custom made with many user friendly features included. A powder room is discretely and conveniently located off the kitchen. The main level is outfitted with in-ceiling speakers pre-wired for Sonos or any amp.
The second floor offers a fantastic den, office, and large bedroom suite. The den might be your favorite room to relax in with a wall of built-in bookcases and cabinets. There is also a finished game closet. The large office on the second floor has two workspaces and ample office file space, plus two closets. The rear bedroom suite easily accommodates a king bed with a bathroom featuring a glass stall shower, soaking tub, and washer/dryer.
The owner’s suite encompasses the entire third floor with a large bedroom, dressing room with custom closets and bathroom with another washer dryer. The large deck off the third floor hall is great for evening dining and catching some sun on the weekends. The decking material is Brazilian Walnut Ipe, which is long lasting and durable. Plenty of space for dining and lounging.
The basement unit was renovated in 2010 and has nearly 8′ ceilings. While not currently a separate unit, it could be a great rental, den, au-pair or in-law suite. The 1 bedroom unit has three ways of egress. There is also 1 and a 1/2 bath in the basement. The kitchen has stainless appliances and granite countertops. There is a large storage room at the back.
Quick walking distance to all services. Close by to Glen’s and multiple coffee shops and restaurants on Connecticut Avenue and 18th street. Everything is convenient. Two blocks walk to the DuPont Circle metro stop. A perfect urban location at the cusp of residential and commercial. The house is comfortable year round with two HVAC zones – installed in 2019 and 2015. Currently zoned for Oyster-Adams Bilingual Elementary School.
