    15th between … R and S?

    Yes right behind and across 15th from the big masonic temple/museum building. Beautiful building.

    I’ve always wondered about this building. It looks beautiful when the flowers are in bloom. Anyone know its history? In particular- the giant cross?

      Former Rectory of St. Augustine’s Church.

      Sold off by the church around 1980 when it merged with the parish at 15th and V. According to property tax records, it is still a single-family home, with owner receiving homestead deduction.

        Yup. It’s constantly up for rent for a moderate $1,500/night… I think I’ve seen it listed on airbnb as well.

          Wow, thanks DC1 and logandude! Great info. I always assumed this was split into condos. Glad I now have a bit more on its history.

    You can rent this spot on AirBnB (or some similar site)!

    I used to live here. The rooftop deck is amazing. It has 8 bedrooms and 6 full bathrooms. The first floor has stone floors. I lived there around the time of Real World DC and, since we kept the house pretty busy and lively on the weekends, people used to stop by and knock and say “Is this the Real World house?” and we would respond “… … yeah come on in!” It was quite eventful.
