Imagine Yourself In A 19th-Century Victorian Home In Logan Circle


This historic piece of Logan Circle real estate is a revitalized jewel in a neighborhood that’s also full of history.

It isn’t every day that you find a home for sale whose own history rivals that of the city where it sits. Especially if that city is Washington DC. But that’s the case with this 1871 Victorian Italianate–style home in the Logan Circle section of the city.
Though it’s been renovated, this four-story home has maintained much of its historic grandeur. You’ll find custom millwork, carved mantels, original crown molding, and stained-glass windows throughout. It has ten bedrooms, ten bathrooms, eight fireplaces, and a finished basement with a one-bedroom, one-bath apartment. There’s plenty of space outside, too, in the form of an English garden and a large, brick-paved patio with a water fountain and built-in grill.
We’re not the only ones who have noticed the rowhouse—earlier this year named it one of the top five homes that could stand in for the Underwood residence in the Netflix drama House of Cards.

These Victorian home’s 12-foot ceilings allow for larger, eye-catching furnishings, especially in the living room, from the period-appropriate chandelier to the ornate breakfront, a custom piece made for the room using 200-year-old Irish pine. The pine floors have been refinished only once since they were laid when the home was built.
Washington dc summers can get hot, no surprise there, so the owner turned part of the porch into an enclosed solarium with six custom French doors. It’s the perfect respite from Washington dc long months of heat, with a floor fashioned from rescued telephone poles, that leads to the gardens, the potting shed, and the garage. Guests are greeted from the porch to the garden by a small babbling stone fountain.
One of these Victorian home’s biggest surprises is its garden, tucked away behind a private lattice fence. The current owner meticulously designed and planted the garden with Japanese boxwoods, Double Knock Out roses, American holly, and Little Gem Magnolia trees. The parterre garden is bordered by a meandering vintage brick walkway that leads from the home to the garage. A stone bench in the middle of the garden allows for a moment of private reflection.
