Step back in time with this iconic historic residence on Swann Street, built in 1890. Nestled amidst the legendary leafy canopy of ginkgo trees—a picturesque ode to its storied past. With William Dorsey Swann's name gracing the street, every brick and beam of this house sings of history. This home offers a perfect blend of vintage character with the comfort of modern amenities. An inviting layout unfolds over three levels above grade, with the charm of oversized windows bathing the interior in natural light, perfectly framing the ginkgo vista. Original hardwood floors, wood trim, and three wood-burning fireplaces, each adorned with a hand-carved marble surround, pay homage to its rich past.

The open concept main level effortlessly blends living, dining, and a refreshed kitchen, complete with a central island, a vast stretch of cabinets, and sleek countertops. The primary suite on the 2nd floor is an urban haven featuring a fireplace, a spacious en-suite bath with a jetted tub overlooking the yard, a frameless glass door shower, and an expansive walk-in closet. This floor also boasts an additional living room and a full bathroom. Ascend to the top floor, where skylights invite more of the sun, highlighting two spacious bedrooms. Outdoors, the screened-in porch awaits relaxation, while the hardscape backyard, adorned with a heritage flowering vine, offers versatility for gardening or gatherings. Choose between tranquility or convenience with the option for off-street parking through the back gate.

This residence isn't just about the home; it's about the iconic Swann Street experience. Right in the heart of DC, step out and find yourself just a block from the culinary delights of 14th Street, including Le Diplomat and Lupo Verde. Casual hangouts like Jenni’s Ice Cream and Aslin Beer Company add to the allure. With grocery stores, boutiques, and eateries within a few blocks, one can savor city life without needing a car. Dive deep into the DC culture, make this historic gem your home, and become a part of Swann Street's legacy.
