The expansion of trolley car lines on 14th Street and Georgia Avenue, NW in the first decade of the 20th century was the key impetus for the development of housing in 16th Street Heights. Post World War I population increase also required the creation of new housing in parts of the city that had not yet been developed. Most of the new houses fell into two stylistic categories: Craftsman or Foursquare. These exceedingly popular styles are the key architectural markers identifying the neighborhood. Located on a quiet, tree-lined street near Carter Barron and Rock Creek Park, this American Foursquare has been thoroughly restored and renovated by its current owner and retains most of its fine, original details. The wide, welcoming front porch is a separate living space which can be used at any time of year and is an amenity found in most houses within the community. The main level offers high ceilings, a wide foyer, living room, open concept kitchen/dining, sunroom, and a powder room. This floor enjoys superb natural light at virtually every time of day, owing to the c. 1921 fenestration plan of the house. The second level comprises a commodious principal bedroom with sitting room, two additional bedrooms, and a generously-sized bathroom. The third level functions as a bedroom or office and has significant storage space. The lower level au pair suite has a separate entrance and kitchen, as well as a full bathroom, living area, and separate space for a bed. The fully-fenced back yard is among the largest in the neighborhood, and offers a detached two-car garage, a sign of the level of affluence that was enjoyed by the original owners.
