We purchased 1645 31st St, NW (The Williams-Addison House) in May of 2012. Located in historic Georgetown, it is truly a one-of-a-kind property. Originally built in 1817, this home is on the DC Inventory of Historic Sites, and, at ¾ of an acre, is one of Georgetown’s largest privately owned estates. The estate had been in disrepair for some time and several developers had attempted to renovate without success. This property was brought to us by a local bank that knew we had the capability to perform on such a highly challenging and unique project. We successfully navigated the Old Georgetown Board, the Commission of Fine Arts and DC Historic Preservation Office to receive the necessary approvals for completing the renovation and restoration. We spent two years and several million dollars finishing the 11,500 square feet of interior space, while restoring and maintaining the exterior and historic features of the 200 year-old estate. We worked with acclaimed architect and designer Dale Overmyer on the home, and with award-winning landscape architect Fritz & Gignoux to make the grounds truly spectacular. This property has been featured in Architectural Digest and on NBC.
