2912 N Street, NW
The Lincoln-Claytor House is a grand Federal-style house that has been beautifully and sensitively restored, improved and maintained. Designed by Mr. Bulfinch and erected about 1885, it was later occupied by Jeffie Lincoln, President Lincoln’s last blood relative and Graham Claytor, president of Southern Railway, Secretary of the Navy and leader of Amtrak’s reconstruction of DC’s Union Station.
A beautiful and impressive straight-through hall with fireplace is one’s first introduction to this gracious home. On one side of the hall is a large formal living room with fireplace and south-facing Jefferson windows. To the other side is a handsome, Chippendale-style staircase providing access to all levels of the house including a private study off of the main level. At the back, the hall opens to an old-fashioned covered porch with spectacular views of the beautifully landscaped, terraced gardens.
Downstairs is a banquet-sized, paneled formal dining room with fireplace and an inviting and comfortable large family room opening to a state-of-the-art kitchen. Both the dining room and family room have direct access to the gardens. Upstairs is a sumptuous master suite including a paneled library. The top floor offers two additional bedrooms, each with a full bath en suite. The house also offers a Butler’s/Catering Kitchen, staff quarters, a garden room and ample storage and utility spaces. A separately deeded, over-sized two-car garage plus additional parking for 2-3 cars is included. Offered at $5,990,000
