A plan for a new home adjacent to the Rosedale Farmhouse received a nod from the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) late last week.
The lot where the home will be built, one of several split up by neighbors after a major purchase of the historic home and its surrounding land in 2002, is the last one on the property. The rest is owned by The Rosedale Conservancy. The lot is east of the Rosedale Farmhouse, which was built in 1793, making it one of the oldest homes in DC. The restored farmhouse sold for $4.45 million in late 2012.
KUBE Architecture is tackling the design of the home, and had been working on getting HPRB to approve the concept for several months. At issue, mostly, was the initial location of a pool, which the Board called “inappropriately close to the Conservancy’s land and … forward of the Farmhouse.” (The lot’s address is referred to as 3501 Newark Street NW (map), though it shares that address with the farmhouse and will get a new address on Ordway Street once the home is complete.)
Now that the firm has received approval, the project will move forward.
“We’re going to go right into getting a civil engineer out there and really get moving on the site design,” said KUBE’s Janet Bloomberg. The new house will spread out over 6,000 square feet — 4,000 square feet above ground and another 2,000 in the basement. When it’s done, it’ll boast five bedrooms and four and a half baths. The proposed layout is below:
