1413 35TH Street NW


Georgetown

Originally built in 1810 in the Federalist style, this row house was converted in the 1940s by decorator Margaret Weller to a flat-front English Regency style. The current owner, Christian Zapatka, a noted Washington architect, acquired the property and proceeded to undertake a major renovation. Christian’s goal was to keep the period aspects of the house intact while giving it a fresh 21st-century makeover. He preserved much of the 1940s façade while completely gutting the interior. His design incorporated influences both from England (an Adam marble mantle piece rescued from another Georgetown renovation) and France (an unusually pointed Chevron-pattern floor in the dining room and a table made from a Parisian balcony).

1502 Vermont Avenue NW

Logan Circle

In 1875, 1502 Vermont Avenue, NW, was built as the residence for one of DC’s President-appointed Commissioners following the Civil War. In the early 20th Century, the house played residence to the German Ambassador to the US. Later, Annie Oakley, the famous rodeo star, purchased the home for her daughter, who was a wealthy socialite in DC at the time. Some real estate brokers in DC even refer to the address as the Annie Oakley House. After a period of decay, the house was purchased and restored by a pioneering couple in the early 1970s. They restored the property, while demolishing a neighboring home to make way for the current garden that spans the side of 1502 Vermont Avenue. The current owners bought the house in 1989 and have painstakingly renovated every square inch of it, bringing both a freshness of attitude and a reverence for the past.
