This Week's Wow House: Brookland's Round House
When you sell houses in the Washington, DC area, you see a lot of amazing stuff. But yesterday was special.
Jake Abbott and Shemaya Klar, the listing agents (they're with Prudential Pen Fed Realty, held a brokers' Open House at the historic Round House in Brookland. Of course, I had to drive across town to check it out.
For years, I'd been driving past it and wondering what the interior might look like. It turns out that the home, built in 1901, was designed to accommodate the original owner's wife, who was wheelchair bound. But what I saw yesterday bore little resemblance to the original design.
The project was the work of Ditto Residential and architects Chuong Cao and Giang Dinh. While the facade was not significantly altered, they pushed out the back of the house to increase the size to about . They opened up the entire first floor with a highly contemporary kitchen. There are four bedrooms and two baths on the upper level. For all of the details and an extensive photo gallery, check out the developer's web site.
The Round House is offered for sale at $899,900
