Built in 1890, this brick Dupont Circle rowhouse was designed much like its embassy neighbors: It features grand public entertaining rooms on the first floor—including front and rear parlors and a wood-paneled formal dining room—and living space on the three upper floors. The kitchen, stocked with granite countertops and a refrigerator disguised as cabinetry, is just off the family room on the second floor. It has a central island with a cooktop and hood, and it’s anchored by floor-to-ceiling pillars on each corner. The white-painted library—a sunny change from the wood paneling that frequently defines these spaces—has a fireplace and built-in bookshelves. The master bath has a glass shower, double sinks, and a claw-foot soaking tub.
