The Details

13 Beds | 10.5 Baths | 1885 Year Built | Sold
Downton Abbey West! This is a once in a generation opportunity to own a historic Dupont Mansion prominently sited on the corner of 16th and R Street and designed by Bruce Gray in the 1880s in the Richardsonian Romanesque tradition. It is a massive property with 10-12 BR/6 1/2 BA, soaring ceilings with over 9000 sf combining a heavy stone rusticated exterior with delicate beauty as seen in the foliate decoration of the columns. The medieval conical tower and rounded windows have French-inspired wrought-iron balconies. The asymmetrical composition, rusticated surfaces, sandstone walls, belt course, and entablature are all common to Queen Anne houses of this period. However, they are seen here in a particularly felicitous combination that makes the house absolutely unique, even in Washington. In addition to the main house, there is a carriage house, an au-pair suite, garage parking space, and one surface parking space. The former Embassy of Bolivia, and later Ecuador, it is one of the largest townhouses over 9,000+ square feet in the Dupont/Logan area. Many cultural resources and neighborhood parks are nearby. The Dupont Metro and the U Street Metros are short walks.
