In recent years, there have been many new restaurants, caf~s, and shops which continue to make Mount Pleasant the right choice for anyone hoping to enjoy the convenience of this dynamic environment. The house is a short walk to the Columbia Heights Metro station and just twenty minutes to Amazon~s National landing.In the early part of the 20th century, most of the neighborhood was developed in the Victorian architectural style. Irving Street, like many other distinguished locations in Mount Pleasant, is lined with fine row houses. These were built for affluent Washingtonians when the neighborhood was still virtually a suburb, south of the Piney Branch Bridge joining it with Crestwood to the north. The area was still undeveloped farmland in 1900 when 1633 Irving Street was built.In order to combat the heat of the summer, the house was built up on a full story of living space. This centuries-old piano nobile floor plan allows for optimal air circulation to help cool the house. The front door is approached by a set of stairs to a generous covered porch which, in addition to providing living space, also helped to keep the house comfortable during the summer months. The exterior of house is ornamented with the rich vocabulary of decorative elements from the late 19th century including dentils, festoons, and brick corbelling, all of which were hallmarks of the Victorian style.The house features an imposing central staircase with original wood detailing, a large skylight, original pine flooring, and five wood-burning fireplaces. The first floor public rooms offer superb ceiling height, original woodwork, the first of the five fireplaces, a powder room, and a renovated kitchen which opens onto a deck and the rear garden below. The second floor offers two bedrooms each with a fireplace that currently serve as a family room and office, as well as a renovated bathroom, and a laundry room. The master bedroom with fireplace is currently located on the third floor, but the large, second-floor bedroom which is current family room, would also be an excellent location for the master bedroom. The third floor also offers an additional three bedrooms and a renovated bathroom.The lower level is a full one-bedroom au pair suite that is as elegant and as handsomely renovated as the floors above and includes the fifth wood-burning fireplace. It offers a separate front and rear entrances with access to the garden and one parking space.
