Summary

Significance: This semidetached limestone residence in the Louis XVI manner has two major facades (Massachusetts Avenue and Sheridan Circle). The structure covers most of the fan-shaped lot except for a small section which serves as a light well. The interior circulation and rooms which are designed about a central stair hall, as well as the combination of reflective surfaces and natural light, produce an illusion of greater space.
Survey number: HABS DC-261
Building/structure dates: 1909 Initial Construction
