Originally built in 1927 on just over an acre of land, this Neoclassical style home is located within walking distance of the United States Naval Observatory (aka the Vice President’s Residence), the Smithsonian National Zoo, the National Cathedral and Massachusetts Avenue N.W.’s Embassy Row. The Residence was renovated in the fall of 2015 and is currently up for sale with an asking price of $12 million. The 10,300 sq. ft. beautifully decorated home consists of 7 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms. It also features 12 foot ceilings, a pool, marble terraces, a twelve-seat theatre, and staff quarters.
Parrett’s work consisted of both windows and doors on the project, both of which were made up of extruded aluminum cladding to the exterior with 70% Kynar paint, factory primed pine interiors, insulated glass with LowE, simulated divided lites (SDL), a concealed multi-point locking hardware with historic Baldwin cremone bolts and custom one-of-a-kind aluminum brickmold to match the existing all-wood units. The openings consisted of single casement and French in-swing windows with fixed transoms. The French in-swing and out-swing doors have 12″ bottom rails. Another luxury residence with a historical past the Parrett is proud to be a part of!
