MAJESTIC GEORGETOWN RESIDENCE WITH A RICH HISTORY! This impeccably renovated residence, originally built in 1891 at the turn of the 19th century, 3220 Volta Place remains a historic landmark in the heart of Georgetown. First built as an Officer’s Club and later serving as Washington’s 7th Precinct Police Station, this imposing structure was later converted into two residences by renowned architect Robert A. Bell. The façade of the building remains unchanged from a century ago, with thoughtful details, including the fanlight windows and flagpole retaining their historical origin.With over 5,000 square feet of exquisitely finished space that was recently renovated spread over 4 levels with soaring 13-foot ceilings, wood floors in every room, numerous natural gas fireplaces, expansive windows that sit high above the street for privacy, skylights for bright natural lighting throughout, large hall and bedroom closets providing abundant storage solutions, all floors connected by an elevator, built-in stereo-system on every floor, and impeccable sound insulation providing peace and quiet from the activity of Georgetown. A rare find in Georgetown and is ideal for intimate gatherings and large-scale entertaining.The five-bedroom corner exposure Georgetown residence includes an attached garage and semi-private motor court. 3220 Volta Place is located on one of the most beautiful streets in Georgetown across from the National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts and steps away from Georgetown’s Volta Park which features a dog park, basketball courts, swimming pool, and picnic areas.On the first floor, The entry foyer is a grand space with 13’ ceilings that opens to a grand receiving room or dining space with a chandelier.
