945 O Street, NW was constructed circa 1872 and was the most expensive house on the block at that time. Now it is arguably the most charming and a jewel of this historic area. In 1883 the double porches were added, making it inviting as well as handsome. The current owners have made great use of the porches recently with the large, efficient ceiling fans. Sunsets are easily enjoyed given the porch's west facing view. The house has a rich history that parallels the story of the development of the District of Columbia and the Logan Circle neighborhood. Expansive and stately, the house is suited for all kinds of entertaining as well as everyday living. The parlor is stunning with nearly 12-foot ceilings and impressive ornate plaster moldings. The gas fireplace adds to the charm of this exquisite room. Another unique feature is the large shuttered window that looks out over the porch. The dining room is well suited for large dinner parties. That room also boasts a high tin ceiling and a beautiful decorative mantle. Pass by the side door that leads to the porches and side yard and find a large kitchen is fitted with ample storage and modern appliances. It is a kitchen designed and built to cook and entertain with its granite topped island providing food preparation space as well as casual dining opportunities. The current owners were charmed by the kitchen's historic features of the (non-functioning) servant bells and the plate warmer radiator. The side door leads to an enclosed courtyard with brick patio. The stairs lead to a split landing going to the bedrooms on the second floor. The bedrooms are basically suites with each bedroom having a full bath adjacent. The second floor has two of those bedrooms and office space. There are custom closets, ample storage and a convenient laundry room. The third floor makes a delightful secluded bedroom suite. Among the other desirable features is a large storage basement containing a 500-bottle wine cellar. A truly unique addition to the property is the two-story carriage house, originally a stable, separated from the main house by that charming courtyard area. The 900 sf carriage house is currently set up as fully functioning living space and was used as guest quarters by the current owners. It has a full kitchen and laundry facilities. That makes a total of 4 bedrooms and 4-1 / 2 baths. There is off street parking for two cars. 945 O Street is superbly located with ample shopping, dining and recreation facilities nearby. Trendy Naylor Court and Blagden Alley are the next two blocks south. A Walk Score of 96 demonstrates most errands can be accomplished locally. All Metro line stations are located within blocks of the house. Major bus lines and access roads make getting anywhere easy. Those conveniences result in a Ride Score of 92. While offering the magnificent look and feel of another century, 945 O Street has the critical updates that elevate it to today's living standards in an ideal setting.
