Built in 1923, this Massachusetts Avenue Heights estate sits on a wooded one-acre lot near the Naval Observatory. The most impressive room is the music hall, which can function as a reception room for large parties. It’s paneled with American redwood and features 16-foot ceilings, a large brick fireplace, and five arched Palladian windows. The current owner has a piano at one end of the long rectangular space. We like the kitchen, which has a modern European feel. In addition to its sleek cabinets and dark slate flooring, it has professional-grade double ovens and a gas range, as well as specialized kitchen equipment like a French flattop grill and a salamander broiler.
