Georgetown 'WOW' House: 1817 Federal on Cox's Row
This 1817 townhouse at 3331 N St. NW features 8 bedrooms and 7 baths. The home is 9,474 square feet with a double-parlor living room with two fireplaces. The home is on the market for $7,980,000. It was previously on the market for $10 million.


From The Georgetown Dish in 2011: "Some years ago, George White, former Architect of the Capitol, gave me a tour of his house at 3331 N Street.  I was awe-struck by the size and condition of the house....it had hardly any alterations in nearly two hundred years!  It was huge and magnificent, with very high ceilings, and wider than most Georgetown houses.  I reverently followed him from floor to floor.  What an honor to see this house with a man who so respected it's architecture. The house was built on a brick foundation - solid as Gibraltar. Mr. White told me that the house was part of the Underground Railway, which helped African Americans flee northward to freedom.

George White purchased the house for under $200,000.  It was sold in 2001 for $2.1 Million, extensively and superbly renovated, and sold again for $7 Million in 2006."
