This Week’s Find is a sizable, four-story Victorian at the corner of 21st and O Streets NW with a very interesting looking living room.
The home, which underwent a major renovation in the 1970s, has a couple design elements that set it apart from other Dupont Circle rowhouses: as an end unit, it has three unattached, window-filled walls, and the renovation involved demolishing a few more walls and floors to give the interior an open feel.
“Most townhouses are somewhat cramped,” said current owner Pantelis Michalopoulos, who has lived in the home since 1994. “The renovation made quite a difference.”
Besides a living room that now has a double-height ceiling, the removal of walls also created an atrium on the second story that looks down onto the first floor. An exposed brick wall rises dramatically for two stories, as well.
The five-bedroom home also has an abundance of fireplaces, including one in the master bedroom and what looks like a small one in the master bathroom by the tub. An in-law suite adds the potential for rental income. More details and photos below.
