On Cox’s Row, Federal Style Charmer and Mayor’s Home: 3327 N St. NW
By September 16, 2021 0 552•
A spectacular early 19th century home with a rich historical past is a jewel on the market right now in west Georgetown. This 200-year-old Federal style home on N Street NW has been completely restored and updated by its current owner. It’s stylish and sophisticated and includes over 7,000 square feet of living space on five separate floors. All for a cool $6.1 million.
It’s hard not to notice the intricate details of the home, such as its Egyptian marble mantles and gorgeous crown moldings.
“It has been lovingly restored and preserved so magnificently,” listing agent Margaret Heimbold of Long & Foster told Mansion Global earlier this summer.
The home includes five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, three half-baths and six fireplaces. The master suite offers his-and-her baths and walk-in closets, perfect for couples who value their own space. There’s even an elevator to transport home dwellers to four of the five floors.
While the home retains its historical charms, the kitchen is completely modern. Those who love to entertain will be pleased to hear there are two dishwashers, two microwaves, two fridges and two wall ovens.
Exteriors are lovely as well. The gardens and on-site fishpond were featured in Georgetown’s Historic House and Garden Tours in years past (during pre-Covid times). Four garage-ways and two extra parking spaces are included—a hot commodity these days!
Of course, in D.C. most homes have a past, but at 3327 N Street the storylines are fascinating. The builder of the home, constructed in 1817, was Colonel John Cox, a real estate owner and merchant who was also a veteran of the War of 1812. History buffs may also know Cox as mayor of Georgetown from 1823 through 1845. He built five homes in Georgetown for himself and his sons, all next door to each other. The homes have since become known as “Cox’s Row.”
The home is just blocks from the heart of Georgetown’s retail and restaurants and less than a mile from The Kennedy Center.
