It looks like the former Textile Museum might not be the only high-end fixer-upper project primed for the Kalorama neighborhood. 

For homebuyers looking for a project and to join a list of neighbors that includes the Obamas, Jeff Bezos and the Kushner-Trump brood, this nearly 10,000 square-foot townhome could be an impressive opportunity.

Built in 1911, this five-story property hit the market over a week ago. While certainly rough around the edges, the end-unit rowhouse is 24 feet wide, with a white sandstone façade and striking interior space.

On the second story at the front of the house, three nearly floor-to-ceiling archtop windows, with an iron railing suggesting a juliet balcony on the exterior, line the wall of one of the interior rooms.

Several of the rooms also have fireplaces, extensive decorative molding and herringbone-patterned hardwoods floors. The house has an elevator in addition to a winding staircase. Other majestic features include an ornately-framed floor-to-ceiling mirror on the second story landing.

The rear is alley-accessible and there is also a two-car garage. Additional details are below.
