Urgent: Save Chevy Chase DC Historic 1914 Home from Demolition
There‚Äôs a 3,000 square foot 1914 Arts Crafts house in Chevy Chase, D.C., that is slated for demolition by a developer who wants to build a 5,500-square-foot house in its place. We are reaching out to people who treasure the irreplaceable in order to find the house a new owner. 

The house is located in the Chevy Chase, DC neighborhood (four blocks south of the DC/MD border) at 3823 Morrison Street, NW, Washington, DC  20015 in the first block of Morrison west of Connecticut Avenue, on a leafy street within walking distance of all that upper Connecticut Avenue has to offer, and the shops and Metro station at Friendship Heights DC/MD.

While clearly in need of repair, this house represents the kind of irreplaceable architectural gem Chevy Chase, DC is known for and that buyers eagerly seek.  It's a testament to the quality and durability of materials used in this home that despite years of neglect it still stands ready for the next 100 years.

The developer's asking price is about $1 million. The house requires much work to bring it into fine shape; also, the kitchen requires remodeling and the baths may as well.

The good news is that most of the original design details of the three-story, six-bedroom, two-full/two-half-bath 3,000-square-foot single-family-home are intact: A gracious side-entrance hall with oak paneling; nine-over-one sash windows; coffered ceiling in dining room; fireplaces in living room and one bedroom; two sun porches. 

Ideally, we would like to find an owner who would restore the house to become his or her home.  As a back-up, we are assembling an LLC group to purchase the home and oversee its restoration.  If you or anyone you know would be interested in participating in either scenario, please get in touch with me as soon as possible for additional information.
 
Photos of the exterior are available. Photos of the interior are very similar to interior shots of 3825 Morrison Street, NW which was listed for sale on Redfin in 2009.  The houses were built at the same time (1914) and designed by the same architect.

Best regards,
