Summary

Significance: This limestone structure in the Louis XV manner is skillfully balanced with Louis XVI details. the building conforms to an irregular-shaped lot, which is defined by Massachusetts Avenue, Q Street, 22nd Street, and the west party line. Each street elevation is treated as a major facade. Those on the avenue and 22nd Street act together as a focal point for the convergence of the thoroughfares. Occupied as a residence throughout its history, the house and its original service facilities remain unchanged.
