This Dumbarton Street home, just off Wisconsin Avenue in the heart of Georgetown, was originally built in 1875—and it still retains many of the era’s most beautiful historic architectural flourishes, from the soaring ceilings and double doors to the gorgeous moldings. Our favorite room: A large double-size parlor, decked out with a charming bay window, built-in display shelving, two fireplaces, and a pair of crystal chandeliers. Upstairs, the master suite opens to a lovely upper-level screened porch, and in back, there’s a secluded, lush terrace garden space. 

The five-bedroom, six-bath home is listed at $3.295 million. Take a look below, then go to Washington Fine Properties for a full tour.
