1252 10th Street NW Washington, DC 20001
The gem for which you have been waiting and a new price. Situated on a quiet, one-way street in the desirable Blagden Alley neighborhood, this restored three story Eastlake gem, circa 1888, has many original features. Nicholas T. Haller, a prominent Washington architect and developer, built this and the two sisters houses to the south. The current owners’ careful restoration garnered the attention of HGTV’s Restore America, the Washington Post, and has been on multiple house tours. Note that the double entry front door and bay windows are complemented by stained glass transoms created from a Frank Lloyd Wright design. Note the antique doorbell ringer. The detail of the restoration is exquisite. Note the period Eastlake broken leaf doorknobs, faceplates and escutcheons. The vestibule and hearth are tiled with encaustics from the UK. Much of the woodwork is original. The living room and full sized formal dining room have been papered with Anglo-Japanese Bradbuy & Bradbury art wallpapers. Note the cleverly constructed storage areas in the closets in the dining room. The lower level can be accessed from the upper level or separate front and rear doors. The entry hall leads to the clubroom with Australian Cyprus Pine floors. The well designed kitchen has ample cabinetry and room for a table. There is full bath on the lower level. The top floor features two bedrooms and a full bath. Rare property features, other than those in the house, include the original coal cellar beneath the cast iron front steps. The smoke house or spring house is located between the main house and garage. The almost 700 square foot garage provides off-street parking and plenty of extra storage or hobby space. 1252 10th Street Northwest has a Walk Score of 97 out of 100.

The Bike Score is 99 out of 100! 1252 10th Street Northwest is about 4 blocks from the Green Metrorail Green Line at the MT VERNON SQ/7TH ST-CONVENTION CENTER, GREEN/YELLOW LINE CENTER PLATFORM stop.
