Dining room at 4508 17th Street NW
Crestwood is home to a variety of residential architectural styles, but 4508 17th Street NW stands out among them.
Custom-built for a prominent DC family shortly before the Great Depression, the four-bedroom house pays homage to the Italian Renaissance Revival style with a strong Arts and Crafts design (which was just getting popular) thrown in. The large enclosed portico offers details from the Federal period, including radial fanlights, and paired Ionic columns, and there are large Palladian windows on both sides of the rounded facade.
If architectural details do not strike your fancy, there are a number of other noteworthy aspects of this home. It has a large second-floor balcony, four fireplaces, a banquet-sized dining room that has hosted dinners with over 40 people, and for years, the home’s original icebox was preserved and functional. The pool in the back of the house is heated and can be used for six months out of the year.
