1808 New Hampshire Ave NW

In the market for a bed and breakfast? Dupont Circle’s Swann House just hit the market this weekend.

The 14-bedroom property is massive, and as one might expect from a bed and breakfast, there are plenty of luxurious trimmings, like intricately carved fireplaces in the bedrooms, whirlpool bathtubs, a swimming pool, and many private terraces. The house was built in 1883 and has an appropriately historic feel.

As DCmud reported last fall, an auction was planned for the property, but it was canceled and the owners filed for bankruptcy.

Swann House joins a handful of other bed and breakfasts in the area that have gone on the market in the past couple of years. DC GuestHouse, a smaller bed and breakfast, sold last month for $1.95 million after sitting on the market for over a year.

    LOVE this house! Seems like a fair price for the square footage--maybe even a bit low for a luxury property? I hope it stays an Inn, we need more charm and fewer cookie cutter hotel rooms in this city.

    I just heard from the next door neighbor that the Swann House B & B sold to a condo developer. I will do everything in my power to avoid the development of condos in the historic house. Marcy Logan
