DuPont Circle, Estate of the Day
I saw this one on Curbed a few weeks back and decided it deserved the estate of the day treatment over here if only for the rather unique decorative touches. As Curbed pointed out, this one has a variety of interesting features, not the least of which is a quote from Homer's Odyssey on the risers in the entrance gallery. This over 10,000 square foot Dupont Circle mansion has a total of eight bedrooms and was used as a bed and breakfast. The Artists Inn Residence Bed and Breakfast had six theme rooms: Da Vinci, Dali, Hepburn, Ellington, Mozart and Shakespeare. There are a total of 13 fireplaces and the building has an elevator, five-car parking and a private outdoor terrace. It's a little quirky but it's great space that could be turned back into a family home once some of the theme details were removed. This one is listed at $15.5 million.
