1519 P Street NW
In 1879, John Batters, the owner of a grocery store at 13th and T Street NW, built a two-bedroom home at 1519 P Street NW for a mere $1,000.
There were two things that made the new residence — dubbed “The O House” after the original lot owner John O’Hagan — stand out. For one, it was the first major brick structure constructed on the 1500 block of P Street NW. Second, the home was built detached and set back from the street, two reasons that it differentiates itself from the attached rowhomes on the central Logan Circle street.
The construction of the house as detached proved important more than a century later when Alex and Amanda Marshall purchased it in 2004. The couple planned rear and side additions, essentially turning the home into a rowhouse. However, neighbors and ultimately the city disapproved of the plan, which is why the home continues to stand out today.
The O House was listed on Thursday with Washington Fine Properties. More details and photos below.
