Logan Circle Grande Dame! Rare opportunity to own a beautifully preserved 1888 Queen Anne rowhome filled with remarkable period details plus a legal one-bedroom basement rental. As you approach, the high iron staircase leads you to the dramatic arched entry and angled tile vestibule, reflecting the unique reorientation of the house to the diagonal street grid of Rhode Island Avenue. The round tower, spanning from the English basement to the third floor, showcases exquisite brickwork and is crowned with diamond-shaped terra cotta tiles on the mansard roof, adding to the home’s architectural charm. Step through the intricately carved original double doors into a residence filled with period details, including soaring ceilings, stunning crown moldings, ornamental plaster-work, and original 19th-century red pine flooring that flows throughout all three levels. The parlor floor boasts an elegant formal living room featuring a delicately carved mantle with inset mirror, hand-glazed tile surrounding the wood-burning fireplace, and stained glass windows in the round front bay. The dining room features period-inspired William Morris wallpaper and a hidden pocket door, adding to the home’s unique character. The updated kitchen at the rear of the home offers classic Shaker style cabinetry, granite countertops, and new stainless steel appliances. Ascend the intricately carved staircase to discover the gracious primary suite, featuring a wood-burning fireplace, elegant mantle, and built-in bookshelves. The south-facing circular bay continues here as well, giving the room a majestic feel, while the large attached bath features a massive shower, dual sinks and a wall of closets. An adjacent bedroom with another wood-burning fireplace completes the second floor, providing the option for a private study or TV room for a full-floor primary suite. The top floor features another large bedroom with treetop views from the south-facing windows and an additional full bathroom. The fourth bedroom can also double as an office with direct access to the private roof deck. Additionally, another deck off the parlor level overlooks the serene back yard, bursting with pink cherry blossoms each spring. The property also includes a completely separate one-bedroom English basement apartment. The separately metered unit is currently rented for $1,995/month, offering a fantastic opportunity for extra income. Situated just off verdant Logan Circle, this ideal location provides easy access to neighborhood amenities, including Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and a wide array of renowned restaurants such as Le Diplomate, Barcelona Wine Bar, The Coffee Bar, and Gypsy Kitchen. With one of the city’s most beautiful parks right outside your front door, this historic gem at 1109 Rhode Island Avenue NW offers a truly exceptional opportunity to own a piece of DC history in the heart of Logan Circle.
