To be sure, 3134 Ellicott St NW is not typical Good Deal or Not (GDoN) subject material. Tax records report over 13,000 square feet of living space on more than an acre of land. It has an unfinished basement and isn’t anywhere near Metro, but I’m guessing there is plenty of offstreet parking.

A closer look reminds us of the historic grandeur of Washington, DC, and, honestly, I just think the before and after pics are quite intriguing. As mentioned above, the property had been on the market as early as 2008. Check out the interior photos from before 21 different designers got their hands on it. In 2011, the property was featured as the DC Design House.

Designed by noted architect Arthur B. Heaton, (profiled here by House History Man, Paul Kelsey Williams), it was built in 1925 for George N. Everett, a department store executive. John H. Small was the landscape architect. It appears that the entire set of drawings and plans for the house are located at The Library of Congress.

The listing agent for 3134 Ellicott St NW was Ellen Wilner with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. Cathie Gill of Cathie Gill, Inc. represented the purchaser.

  • Ha! My friend from high school grew up here.

  • I used to live around the corner from this house on Davenport St. (in a considerably less grand house) and I think Ellicott is one of the loveliest streets in the city. Not as far from metro as it might seem since you can walk to Van Ness in about fifteen or twenty minutes. Always wondered what it might look like inside, so thanks for the feature!

  • I wonder how much of the “design” conveys? Are they selling the furniture? Because I would change almost nothing about that place.

    It’s actually assessing about 10% higher than the sales price, too.
