About 1633 16th Street Northwest

Located in a highly sought-after, established neighborhood that is walkable to the best the city has to offer, the Shehan Mansion presents a rare opportunity to own a work of both historical and architectural significance. Built in 1885 with brick and natural stone, this spacious corner residence encompasses an approximately 6,700 square foot main home, a 2 BR Carriage house, a garage and a dedicated parking space, along with a lower unit with 2 BR/2 BA, a private entry and approximately 1,600 square feet. Towering mature hardwoods and a distinctive five-story tower create a sophisticated first impression for this home, which features a grand, double-door covered entry, original hardwood floors in impeccable condition, and a caterer-quality kitchen with modern appliances.

The Neighborhood: Dupont Circle

Dupont Circle was developed during the Gilded Age as a home for Washington’s elite and moneyed class. Stately mansions built around the elegant circle and along Massachusetts Avenue were showpieces for many of the nation’s wealthiest industrialists, earning the stretch the nickname “Millionaires Row.” It became Embassy Row after the stock market crash emptied the mansions and foreign governments moved in.
