The McMillan Commission and the City Beautiful Movement in Washington witnessed the development of some of the best architecture in our neighborhood. Frederick Law Olmsted, who was responsible for the design of Rock Creek Park, envisioned elegant rowhouses in neighborhoods north of the Piney Branch Bridge, as the city expanded in the first decades of the 20th century. Essentially the progeny of the late Victorian period, these rowhouses were designed with gracious public rooms, high oak-coffered ceilings, and substantial yards for all manner of activities. This block of Decatur Street offers a handsome array of houses that offer solidly constructed brick facades with wide front porches, plenty of room, and many original architectural details. The main floor of this residence offers a foyer with fireplace, large living and dining rooms, a renovated kitchen, sunroom, and powder room. The second level offers a principal bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and sitting room, two additional bedrooms, a hall bathroom, and a sunroom with large walk-in closet. The finished third floor is outfitted as a home office but could also be used for additional storage. Found in the finished lower level is a family room, bedroom, full bathroom, and a generous storage and utility area with updated mechanical systems. The garden terminates in a one-car garage under the shade of many mature trees.
