GRAND GESSFORD STYLE
STEPS FROM STANTON OR LINCOLN
Between 1875 and 1895, the visionary architect/developer Charles Gessford was reshaping his vibrant neighborhood. Nestled within a three-block stroll of Lincoln or Stanton Park—cornerstones of The Hill's past and present—this 9th Street row embodies Gessford's gravitas! Exquisite rusticated limestone foundations, intricate press-brick facades, and meticulously crafted interior elements are intact and restored. A recent Gessford design nearby on East Capitol Street commanded $2.6MM, but here you have the chance to claim similar site and features at an irresistible value!
Welcome to number 250—an architectural gem featuring a striking blend of brick and stone. Admire the rounded bay and embrace the interior “Georgetown plan”, showcasing the iconic middle level with formal parlor and rear den. Your journey begins on the garden level, boasting an open floor plan featuring an updated kitchen with sprawling granite prep island and ample maple cabinets. Step out to your private, walled rear garden and patio, complete with a built-in stone grill and patio for dining al fresco with friends and neighbors.
The main middle level features a spacious front parlor with a wood-burning fireplace, then a rear room perfect for dining or den, with distinctive home office zone tucked out of sight behind creative library shelving. Climb the sky-lit stairwell to the upper hall, book-ended by front and rear bed/bath suites. Each custom bath is clad in solid travertine limestone—creating a private hot spring spa for each occupant! Six custom closets provide ample storage. Six tree-top windows, a charming curved bay, and carefully-crafted plantation shutters deliver privacy or splendid views of the streetscape below.
