We worked with nationally renowned designer Darryl Carter to redevelop this historic Capitol Hill home into one of the finest homes on Capitol Hill. Classic with a contemporary twist, this home harkens back to its Washington heritage with timeless architecture, design and layout.
Darryl Carter, a DC-native and one of the top interior designers in the country, led the interior design of the project. He created a rich, neutral palette incorporating design elements that are both edited and elegant. Every space was designed to be lived in.
Attention to detail, passion for design, and commitment to excellence defined every stage of this project from beginning to end.
We worked to maintain the original elements of the home that was originally built in 1857 with two subsequent additions early in the 20th century. We painstakingly restored the facade, reproducing windows to mimic the originals and restoring the ornate gable millwork. Inside, we preserved the wood-burning fireplaces and restored the original mantles.
We dug the existing crawl space (originally used for coal heating) to encompass the entire floor plate, finished the basement and added a third story addition in the rear. The original footprint of the house was maintained- the end result is a truly livable home with a completed size of 4,870 square feet.
