Like many of its elegant neighbors in Kalorama, this residence typifies the best elements of revival-style architecture. Essentially a Normandy style in its composition, it also has the vernacular feeling of one of the great English country houses designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens. The Normandy style is characterized by steep, conical roofs and an asymmetrical plan. A sensibility that joins both England in its Tudor roots and the continent by its French Norman details, this residence expresses the unmistakable hand of architect John J. Whelan, designer of many luxury homes and embassy residences. Prominently sited on an eminence, this property occupies one of highest points in Kalorama, with views of the National Cathedral and the city beyond. Built in 1927 and clad in Scottish brick bond, the house showcases an impeccable recent renovation, an original slate roof, towering chimneys, and an overall charming historic appeal. This stunning oasis is in all regards a private one, including its superb formal gardens. The main entrance is reached by way of a curved, stone walkway surrounded by mature plantings. A welcoming, gracious hallway leads to the large living room with fireplace and balcony, elegant dining room, powder room, main central staircase, and a recently renovated gourmet kitchen/family wing with spectacular Clive Christian cabinetry and millwork. The kitchen features Imperial Danby marble surfaces and floors and appliances of the highest quality including a Viking six-burner range, Subzero 30? dual refrigerators, handmade faucets from P.E. Guerin, Rohl Fireclay sink, Eurofase lighting, and a Sonos sound system.

The original format of the windows is responsible for the luminous quality of the house at all times of the day. French doors create a seamless connection to the outdoors - a perfect setting for entertaining guests in large or small groups.
