This circa 1805 residence is often referred to as the most outstanding example of Federal Period architecture. Splendid original details, moldings, high ceilings, oversized windows, and breathtaking scale make this one of Georgetown’s most desirable residences. The house was previously owned by the notable international power couple, W. Averell Harriman and wife Pamela Churchill Harriman who regularly hosted lavish parties for Washington’s political and social elite. It was also the temporary residence for Jackie Kennedy and her two children after they left the White House following the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The house undertook an extensive renovation project at the hands of Architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, who worked closely alongside Mrs. Harriman to further improve upon the already existing impressive architectural details of this spectacular residence. There are exceptionally scaled public rooms with remarkable moldings and light-colored narrow-board wood flooring. The house is filled with an abundance of natural light from oversized north-facing windows, further magnified by the nearly 12’ ceilings. It is situated on an impressive .38-acre lot, an extreme rarity in Georgetown, with a series of multiple terraces on the rear grounds, beautifully enhanced with extensive gardens and a pool. Parking for 5 plus cars.
