Welcome to beautiful LaFayette Square … If this is your first time here, you are in for a treat! The area has a rich history dating back to the mid-1800’s; this wonderful historic home was built in 1880 in the Victorian style. You will enjoy the old-world architecture with the classic two parlors separated by pocket doors, a beautiful formal dining room, and the two staircases, one in front along with the back spiral staircase by the kitchen.

Year Purchased: 1979
About the owner: Our Father, Joe Fitzgerald, purchased the home in 1979, shortly after it was renovated as part of a focused effort to resurrect the beauty of the neighborhood that had fallen into disrepair. Dad was a twenty year military man, with multiple degrees in psychology, engineering and business, and who spoke three languages. He passed away in November, 2012, just a few weeks short of his 80th birthday. We decorated his home to honor its history while preserving Dad’s personality and his rich life experiences. Our Father deeply loved this home and often said, “I feel more like a steward than an owner of this home. It is my job to preserve it for generations to come.” We were blessed to inherit this home from our Father and we feel the same sense of responsibility. We are happy to share this treasure with others to enjoy as we have. Cynthia and Rachel (Joe's Daughters)
