Significance: This house is a good example of post-Civil War Second Empire-style domestic architecture, as seen in the intact Mansard roof. The house's architectural significance is further enhanced by the twentieth-century alterations, such as the Georgian Revival door surround and the Art Deco interior, which reflect some of this century's popular tastes. Two prominent people, James Roosevelt and Robert F. Kennedy, rented the house, adding to its historical significance. The rear garden is an attractive and carefully cultivated example of the private gardens Georgetown is well known for.
