This historic Queen Ann Victorian was designed by James McGill and built for noted clothier E.B. Barnum sometime around 1883. One of the first wood framed houses built in LeDroit Park, its imposing, colorful facade anchors the Anna J. Cooper Circle. The storybook exterior features complex, asymmetrical designs including bays, turrets, soaring double-hung windows, deep hip gabled roofs of slate, dormers and assorted carved wooden panels of varying colors. This home has been lovingly restored and embellished by the current owners over the past 20 years, with features including custom plaster molding and cornices throughout, restored original woodwork and millwork, an expansive chef’s kitchen, opulent master suite and upgraded bathrooms throughout. Added bonuses include a two-bedroom in-law suite in the lower level, a large 2-car garage and additional secure driveway parking, entered through ornate hydraulic iron gates. This coveted location is only a stroll to well appointed LeDroit Park, myriad shopping and restaurant venues, and Howard U. Metro. This once in a lifetime opportunity is perfect for the urban enthusiast who seeks a grand one-of-a-kind residence, modern amenities throughout and coveted, close-in location.
