Ideally located in the heart of Georgetown’s prestigious East Village, this handsome detached residence is located on a .23-acre lot and exudes grandeur. The Colonial Revival-style home was constructed in 1893 for the daughter of Thomas Hyde, a prominent Washington DC businessman, who worked directly with the architecture firm of Snowden Ashford and Howard Sill. The house remained in the Hyde-Wright family until the early 1960s, when the owner and occupant of the adjacent estate Evermay purchased the property. The new owner made significant changes to both the interior and exterior of the existing structure. The residence now has a commanding street presence at 28th and Q Streets, set back from the street to capture incredible light from all directions. The classic brick façade offers impressive curb appeal, and the interior offers a wonderful balance of sophisticated entertaining rooms and warm family living spaces. Award-winning architects Cunningham|Quill, Horizon Builders, and interior designer Thomas Pheasant worked together in a custom collaboration to completely transform the home using the highest quality design, fixtures, and finishes. No detail was overlooked in the impressive renovation of this historic residence. The main level is set above the street and features an open, flowing layout, perfect for entertaining. The gracious foyer has beautiful moldings and is lit by a lovely transom window above the front door.
