    Awesome, that is over in my hood. Looks like a nice place for a cup of coffee in the am. However, those homes have no back yard.

    Interestingly, THIH did a 3 part series about Gessford Court, which has some cool history — http://www.thehillishome.com/2010/03/lost-capitol-hill-tiger-alley/

    Also, this house does Jazz jam sessions once a month. Pretty cool vibe.

      What are the jazz jam sessions? I live 3 blocks away and have never heard of them.

        Hey! That’s my neighbor’s house! We live just behind them, facing 11th. Gessford Ct. and the surrounding blocks are one of the friendliest, most social places in the city, in my experience. Just a few weeks ago we had a lovely block party and the 21st of each month, there’s a nice get-together at this place (guess why) that is open to the neighborhood.

    Would love to know how this one made it past the historic review board.

      That roof makes me think of the bad 1970s exteriors of those former public-housing townhouses on R Street. (I think one appeared in a “Good Deal or Not?” somewhat recently.)

      It was grandfathered in. Otherwise, almost everything about the exterior is an historical abomination.

    Uh, so what exactly is that giant square thing in the back? I’m guessing it’s a trebuchet aiming device?

      looks like a kinetic sculpture to me.
