  • This circa 1933 grand mansion located in the exclusive Massachusetts Avenue Heights (Mass Ave Heights) has been meticulously restored to its original elegance.
  • This home is perfectly designed for receiving dignitaries with its embassy-sized formal principal rooms. It has stature.

  • The homeowners updated all the bathrooms in the home and the master suite boasts two updated bathroom and changing room suits.
  • The homeowners also updated and renovated the kitchen in 2017 to be a professionally designed chef’s kitchen.
