  • LOVE. Thanks for featuring; haven’t been that way in a while.

  • I drive by these every day on my way to work. Always wondered what they look like on the inside. Maybe one will go on sale so we can take a peak…

    • Definitely worth a look. I checked one out while I was looking for places, and even the un-renovated one I saw was cool. It was kind of like a split level, where you walk up a few stairs to the living room and a few more stairs up to the kitchen and dining room, and a cool curvy plaster wall near the stairs going to the 2nd floor. It also had parquet floors, if I remember correctly.

  • Here you are. Interior photos, plans, and exterior photos when new. From the national magazine Architectural Forum, July 1941: http://flic.kr/p/9NTWNd

  • Because of the angle, that’s our landscaping in front of our next-door neighbor’s house.
    We have a wonderful little community on Arkansas Ave. Everyone is very friendly and enthusiastic about their homes. I doubt highly another will be on the market any time soon. But I can certainly imagine a selected group tour some day…

  • I’ve always been a huge fan of that row on Arkansas Avenue. My only disappointment is that many of the units have had their original facades pretty badly bastardized over the years. I’d love to buy one and restore its outward appearance to what it looked like when it was built.

  • That’s our place (and our neighbor’s great landscaping)! Thanks for making us “house of the day”. We love Arkansas Avenue and our unique (for DC) row of modernist houses!
