Town House

Built in 1811

Perfectly located in the East Village this historic brick Georgetown house is both stately and livable. Above the front door is a marble block with the inscription "Amor Signatur in Hac Domo" and the large original corner stone engraved with "The Lancaster School 1811" remains. The front door has both fanlights and sidelights and is an indication of the Federal authenticity that will follow inside. The entry hall is 13' wide with original wide-plank flooring and flows all the way through to the large south garden. The rest of the ground floor layout is both classic Federal and high functioning. On the right of the hall are two large rooms with fireplaces and 12' ceilings and to the left of the hall is a cozy library with a fireplace and a door to an arbored section of the garden. This part of the house dates to 1790 and contains an original mural by Olin Dows. The center hall also has a coat closet and new powder room. The spacious dining room and large eat-in kitchen are connected by a full butler's pantry. The pantry has a back stairway to the second floor, and doors to both the garden and the driveway. The modern granite kitchen contains a bay window which fits a table for four and feels surrounded by the garden. Every part of the ground floor is special - from its 19th century details like the flooring, moldings, chair rails, mantels, windows sills, and more - to its abundance of windows capturing light from every angle.

The main staircase is flooded with sunlight from a south-facing Palladian window and leads to the commodious landing with access to three ample bedrooms and new marble bath. Each of these bedrooms has very high ceilings and a fireplace. There are also stairs to a fourth bedroom accessed by a hall with a south-facing window and a large linen closet. The primary bedroom has an updated marble bath en suite. This floor maintains the exquisite original details and lofty light-filled rooms of the entry level. This is rare in Georgetown where often the second floor loses some of the grace of the public rooms.

The rear of the second floor is accessed by a back staircase off the butler's pantry. This section of the house has two bedrooms and one bath. These bedrooms have nice light from two exposures each. There is also a large storeroom with windows on two exposures. The very dry basement has two unfinished rooms.

The south garden is large and tranquil. There is a lawn with brick pathways and brick walls with mature perennial plantings including three espaliered fig trees. The shady arbor off the library is secluded and there is a 30' by 10' pool flanked by a studio with large glass doors. This building has another full bath and connects to the garage.
