The lower level also includes a cozy family room, a full bath, workshop, storage, and endless opportunities for more uses in the unfinished areas. Upstairs you will find a lovely primary suite with ensuite bathroom, and four additional bedrooms and two full baths. The wide faade is made of pressed Roman brick and brownstone and is adorned with Palladian windows and cast-iron balconettes. Natural light pours in from the back, side and the restored front windows and door. The roof is standing seam copper and terracotta. Period features are found throughout, including original wood and tile fireplace mantels, door transoms, encaustic tiles, custom built-ins, and hardwood flooring. The home was custom built by Clement August Didden in 1910 on land owned by Albert Carry, George A. Didden Sr.’s father-in-law. Albert Carry owned several businesses including National Capital Brewing Company and help to found National Capital Bank. Carry’s grandson, George A. Didden Jr. served as president for over 50 years and the bank is still operating today on the Hill under the Didden family leadership. The family sold the beautiful home to St. Mark's Parish where they used it as their parsonage from 1950-1998.
