Property Details

Presenting the crown jewel of Kalorama, a storied 6-bedroom, 7-full bath, 3-half bath mansion gracefully positioned across from beloved Mitchell Park and neighbored by embassies, ambassadorial residences, and some of Washington's most architecturally and historically significant properties. Built in 1924, this four-story mansion, originally commissioned by Adolf Miller, chairman of the Federal Reserve, is celebrated as an exceptional example of impressive Colonial Revival architecture, featured in the 1928 edition of The Architectural Forum. The mansion, home to many prominent residents since being built, was most recently owned by the inimitable Esther Coopersmith, a diplomat, political lobbyist, and philanthropist, renowned for hosting extraordinary "bridge building" dinner parties, believing in the power of intimate conversation to overcome differences. The mansion's symmetrical red-brick and limestone facade, grand Palladian windows, and semi-circular driveway welcome you to an expansive, airy interior of nearly 13,000 square feet. The classic center-hall floorplan features dramatically proportioned rooms and exquisitely maintained period architecture, with intricate crown molding and gleaming wood floors throughout. The first two floors serve as the formal and entertaining spaces. The main entry hall is flanked by the formal dining room and reception room, the former being where Ms. Coopersmith used to host her famed dinner parties. A large bedroom, two bathrooms, two powder rooms, kitchen, and elevator complete this level. This home boasts a superb social flow, with the second floor serving as the piano nobile level, with a spacious hall and two grandly proportioned entertaining rooms on the West Wing with nearly 12' ceilings, ornate fireplaces, and dramatic windows with Juliette balconies overlooking S Street. A family room and large kitchen are conveniently located on the East Wing, and a powder room completes the package. From this main level, walk out onto the wide, south-facing terrace and tiered back patio, complete with fountain, pool, extensive hardscaping, and surrounding gardens offering unrivaled sunlight, privacy, and ample space to entertain. Ascend to the third floor, which hosts the primary suite with an ensuite bath and large dressing room, a spacious second bedroom with adjoining sitting room, an additional bathroom, and a large balcony overlooking the back terrace. The fourth floor offers three additional bedrooms, two baths, and a large cedar closet. Completing this package is a two-car attached garage plus additional parking for 4-5 cars. Available for public sale for the first time in decades, don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime historic opportunity. This home has wonderful proximity to a diverse set of dining, retail, and entertainment options in Dupont, Georgetown, and the West End. Commute conveniently from Massachusetts and Connecticut Avenues and arrive home to easy parking. This is a home without compromise.
