A remarkably sophisticated Georgian townhome with a storied past and fascinating style has just hit the market on the 1300 block of 21st Street in Dupont West.
In 1985, the exceptional three-bedroom home was purchased by J. Wallace Tutt, the famed interior designer and developer whose elegant, understated designs were celebrated by clients like Gianni Versace and Cher. Tutt transformed the home, preserving its most sophisticated characteristics and adding stunning indoor-outdoor spaces and a luxurious master bedroom suite.
The completion of the home and resulting sale brought Tutt together with real estate agent Jonathan Taylor. The meeting was the genesis of the luxury residential real estate brokerage TTR Sotheby’s International Real Estate. More than 30 years later, Taylor is listing the property for sale.
The interior of the home is refined, featuring original wood floors, crown moldings, two fireplaces, skylights, and formal living and dining rooms. Since Tutt’s renovation the home has undergone significant updates, including a kitchen renovation and interior designs by Jordan Carlyle of Carlyle Designs.
On the second floor, the oversized master suite features a sitting area; a walk-in closet; and a large bathroom with a free standing tub, shower and a double vanity. The second and third floors feature a family room (which could be converted to a bedroom), a hall bathroom, a den and a loft. The lower level of the home has a private entrance, two bedrooms and one bathroom, and currently fetches a substantial rate on Airbnb.
The home has an elevated entrance and front porch that help lend to the home's privacy from the street. The dining room opens to a spacious covered patio, which leads to a large swimming pool and rear pergola-covered deck, all surrounded by lush landscaping. A garage with easy alley access is located below the patio.
The home is priced at $2,375,000 and is located on a tree-lined street in Dupont West, between Dupont Circle and West End, with easy access to Downtown DC. For more information, visit the property online here or contact TTR Sotheby’s Founding Partner and Manager Jonathan Taylor at Jtaylor@ttrsir.com or 202-276-3344.
