1534 28th St Nw

In Georgetown’s coveted East Village, amongst a landscape of stately Federal and Victorian houses, stands an extraordinary and utterly unique Italianate landmark. For more than a hundred years this house was known as the RobertDodge House, named for and commissioned by the scion of Georgetown’s most important family. However, for over the last 40 years it has been known both at home and abroad as the C. Boyden Gray House and is undoubtedly the most recognizable residence in town. Its provenance is important to our Capital and to our country. Designed in 1850 by Downing and Vaux, easily the most notable architectural partnership of the 19th century. Their designs and influence extended a distinct architectural style that influenced the affluent from New York to Palm Beach, from Central Park to the National Mall. As an authentic 19th-century masterpiece, this residence boasts soaring and expansive spaces showcasing an unparalleled scale, this is true of the public as well as the private rooms. The layout was purposely sized and updated to accommodate state dinners, yet private and warm spaces have been threaded throughout the fabric of the house, making it as comfortable to live as appropriate to entertain. Whether it is space, design, parking, light, or in its possibilities, this house not only checks the necessary boxes but does so generously. Upstairs, the home’s ample and grand bedroom suites offer a versatile arrangement with several luxurious suites. On the third floor is a sophisticated and spacious two-bedroom apartment, designed by Outerbridge Horsey. The lower level provides the service space needed to support such an important property. The grounds feature a large, private lawn with terraces overlooking the serene landscape, a crescent drive, and a sizable two-car garage with additional parking for 5 cars. The house and its systems have been thoroughly maintained including an elevator to all four levels. Its new copper roof, a testament to the commitment to quality and endurance that this property represents, is a perfect example of how the house has been cared for and is ready for a new owner to make their mark in this city at the center of the world stage.
