Only four owners have had the privilege of being custodians of one of Cleveland Park's most admired houses. Constructed in 1901, this residence is the ultimate expression of the Queen Anne style in America, which was popular from c. 1880-1910. This fine property has all the hallmarks of the style, including finely wrought clapboards, dentils, balusters, simplified columns of the Doric order, and most notably a large wraparound porch. Sited on a prominent corner lot, this handsome residence exemplifies traditional Cleveland Park elegance and scale. It also offers views of one of Washington's most iconic buildings, the National Cathedral. The house was built by a member of President Grover Cleveland's administration when the neighborhood was still a suburb; it offered a tranquil respite from the heat and congestion of downtown Washington, accessible by trolley car. The house is located on a quiet tree-lined street and is within close proximity to restaurants, shops, and Metro. The interior offers generously proportioned public rooms and beautifully preserved original period details. A lovely vestibule opens onto a spacious foyer, illustrative of the peerless flow between rooms. The large living room adjoins the gracious dining room which features built-in bookshelves and fireplace. There is a sizable kitchen that overlooks the private rear garden and provides access to the large deck, a quality which is also shared with the family room. The entire main level is illuminated with natural sunlight admitted through large original windows. The spacious master suite features a beautiful turret sitting room and an adjacent sun-filled dressing room or office. There are five additional bedrooms on the upper levels, a balcony overlooking the rear yard, three bathrooms, and an abundance of storage space. The uppermost level also offers a family room or sitting room. The lower level provides additional living space and access to the rear yard, planted with mature trees and perennials. While the house has essentially maintained its original sensibility throughout the last century and is faithful to its original floor plan, there is the added convenience of a one-car garage.
