If you’ve ever strolled by this 3,202-square-foot home, you’ve definitely noticed its brick-clad exterior with sunlit windows. Inside, however, is a completely different story. Over three levels, there are four bedrooms, three baths and one half-bath laid out and complete with crown molding, built-in shelving and views of the city. Built in 1890, the historic home flaunts charm with 12-foot ceilings and refurbished hardwood—with modern amenities like smart home technology, a wine storage room, a private roof deck and a gourmet kitchen. “I love how it effortlessly blends historic DC charm with contemporary style,” says listing agent Jenn Smira. “It’s like living in a modern castle in the middle of one of DC’s most sought-after neighborhoods.”
