This Extraordinary Historic Detached Mansion is located in Dupont/Logan Circle areas in the Middle of the City. Approximately 5000+ SF, The former Rectory of St. Augustine's Church and the original site of a Civil War Hospital is one of the few remaining large downtown estates that have not been converted to condominiums! It is located directly across the street from the World-renowned Masonic Temple with spectacular views of the rear gardens and its magnificent Pillars lit at night. A wonderful tour is offered weekdays!! The Old Mansard Bishops house and Convent buildings next door still retain the architecture of the period, and are quite beautiful. It is a very short distance to the White House, just one block to 16th Street the "Avenue of the Presidents", and a stroll to the downtown Business District and Major Monuments. And for those looking for DC'S newest and hottest restaurants and clubs, the Rectory is just a couple of blocks away to the must-go and trendy 14th Street corridor.
 
Being a detached structure this home offers sun filled rooms and quiet visits with new high end thermo-pane windows through-out. This home has been decorated with attention to the buildings beginnings, a crosscut travertine floor has been laid and the original plaster wainscoting has been hand painted by a local artist to match all the way to the third floor. The first floor is spacious and covered in original woodwork of chestnut wainscoting and old world pine. Please notice in our sites photo's of the original great doors to the dining room and den. The original closets throughout the home were constructed of cedar wood to preserve the woolen frocks of the monks and dignitaries. The original stained glass in the hallways leading up through the home still retain some of the original stained glass with the the letter "A" for the church she was built for, St. Augustin! The original church is still standing just up the street, and worth a tour of her magnificent stained glass and architecture!
 
The kitchen has a sun filled breakfast area, again with lots of windows. Also Commercial grade appliances, lots of cooking utensils and serving platters, and the cupboards are full of glassware, dishes, and utensils.
 
The family room is in the rear of the home with double French doors to the rear trumpet vine covered patio for grilling. This room boasts wooden cross-beamed ceilings, yet more wood wainscoting and moldings, and a working fireplace. Please feel free to use the large flat screen TV while lounging on the comfortable leather sofa's.very comfy room!!
 
The main living room is a bit more formal with rich curtains at the bay window, comfortable yet elegant seating and a wonderful area to gather for cocktails! Just across the hall find the den with a pull out leather sofa and antique writing desk. The dining room may be extended into this room by opening the massive wooden by-fold doors. An additional table is available. Lest we forget, there is a full bath/powder room on this floor and plenty of coat closet space!
 
Upstairs, on the second floor you will find a flower balcony looking to the Mason's temple. We have often seen the presidential entourage from this spot and wave accordingly? The enormous master bedroom is en suite with a separate shower and large soaking tub. The two additional bedrooms share a private hall with a full bath and two large cedar closets.
 
Follow the wainscoting to the third floor and find five more bedrooms. Each with its own solid chestnut and pine door. Two of the rooms share a hall and would be perfect as a suite or two bedroom private area. The third bedroom is en-suite as well as the fourth. The fifth bedroom is quite spacious and has access to the fourth bath through a separate door. Lots of light in all of these rooms and some have spectacular views of the city including the Washington monument!
