About 1836 California St Nw

***ATTENTION INVESTORS $165,000+ yearly income, current tenant lease through August 2024*** Nestled on a quiet, one-way street in sought-after Adams Morgan, 1836 California Street harkens back to an era when grand Victorian townhomes dotted Washington's ritziest neighborhoods. Proudly listed on the DC Registry of Historic Buildings, the residence is a slice of history and the only building ever designed by Elizabeth Coville, the first female to graduate from the Cornell School of Architecture. A distinctive central gable and arched, recessed balcony introduce the substantial four-story home, which seamlessly blends original architectural details from its construction in 1898 with modern updates applied over the years. The centerpiece of the interior is the original staircase, exquisitely crafted from maple and solid oak, introducing elegantly proportioned rooms, rich architectural moldings, and twelve-foot ceilings. On the main level, large formal living and dining rooms each contain one of six fireplaces, as well as arched entryways and abundant natural light. Upstairs, four large bedrooms and two full bathrooms provide ample accommodation. The expansive owners suite is located on the home's top level and features a walk-in closet and an ensuite bath with twin vanities. The lower level is separately metered, with direct front and rear entrances, there are two additional bedrooms and two full bathrooms, offering an ideal income-generating opportunity. Situated on a large lot with a two-car garage in the rear, the home is a fantastic opportunity for developers and investors alike. Located steps away from Dupont Circle, Embassy Row, and countless restaurants, shops, and nightlife, 1836 California offers the ultimate downtown living experience.
