Rare opportunity to buy one of Lafayette Square's most spectacular homes! Built by architect Ernst Janssen around 1895 in Richardsonian Romanesque style and facing the park, it measures over 5700 square feet. From the entry hall, an intricately carved wood staircase leads up to a magnificent stained glass window which must be seen at sunset for full effect. This level includes an oval shaped salon, front parlor, dining room with built-in server, eat-in kitchen, and powder room with unique sink which was probably used by visitors after a dusty carriage ride. The second floor contains a library, bedrooms and a full bath. Climb up to the third floor and be rewarded with an exquisite primary suite including an enormous space with high vaulted ceilings for work and play, a uniquely rounded bedroom, large full bath, and more. Most every room has a fireplace, though they would need to be lined in order to be functional. Room to rebuild the garage if desired. Own a piece of history!
