This project was an infill development of Rosedale, one of Washington, D.C.'s most prestigious neighborhoods. As a six-acre property located in Cleveland Park, the site originally consisted of a park and the city's oldest home. This collaboration included Bill Dunn, a developer, and Jim Gibson, a local builder. The development included a three-acre land trust with six new houses providing spectacular views of the Washington National Cathedral.
The Rosedale Residence, one of the six houses of this project, is a 6,156 sq. ft. renaissance revival-style house that echoes many of the stucco homes in the neighborhood. The three-bedroom and four-and-a-half-bath home contains rich details required by the owners, including intersecting-coin vaulted ceilings and extensive crown molding.
