Car: Not Necessary
The carriage house is located only a few blocks to the east of the U.S. Capitol building. You could spend all your time in our neighborhood -- Capitol Hill -- eating, window shopping, poking into galleries and exploring. But the National Mall parkland, Smithsonian museums and national monuments are just a stone's throw away. You can't be better situated to explore all that DC has to offer.
Year Purchased: 1971
About: The Kelly family is the second family to live in the main house, which was built in 1876 by Maj. Samuel Walker for his family.
Why Stanton Park, Washington, DC, USA:
One of the premier properties on Capitol Hill, the carriage house, the stable and the east side of this Victorian house were completed in 1876. By 1886, Maj. Samuel Walker had more money and ten children so he added the west side of the house, the third floor and the porches in the style of Charles Eastlake, the English architect who simplified Victorian architecture and flattened its rounded gingerbread. All of the first floor ceilings—except the hall—are tin and so is a bedroom ceiling on the second floor.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
One of the great pleasures of the main house is that it remains much as it was when first built. Modernizing was done slowly, with care and caution. On the chance that electricity was just a fad, Major Walker only electrified every other arm of the chandeliers in the living room and the study and left the others as gas jets. The gaslights still work--and so does the electricity.
