First things first: This house for rent in Washington, DC, is the work of Paul Stone. The renowned builder built it for himself in the late 1930s, so extreme care was put into creating this tasteful blend of Colonial Revival and Neo-classical elements.

Nestled in the heart of Crestwood, this single-family house for rent stands as a testament to his craftsmanship and vision. Let’s step inside and see what makes this remarkable rental home a masterpiece to this day.

The house for rent is a personal interpretation of the Colonial Revival style. Thought to be the crowning achievement of Paul Stone, this architectural marvel stands the test of time and then some.

The portico’s Doric columns match the living room’s Palladian window to perfection. This seamless blend of styles continues throughout the house. For instance, the library on the lower level, with its oak flooring, complements the intricate stuccowork.

The house for rent features six bedrooms, a dressing room, four full bathrooms, a powder room, a laundry room, and a beautifully renovated kitchen. It also includes a spacious living room, a separate dining room, a solarium, and an in-law suite.

It comes as no surprise that unique touches define every corner of this house for rent, from the two-car garage to the exquisite bedrooms. The cherry on top is that the finished basement doubles as a separate guest apartment, complete with its very own fireplace and a burst of natural light thanks to the garden it opens to.

And it’s not just the interior that is a harmonious blend of modern luxury and classic charm. Situated on more than half an acre of greenery near Rock Creek Parkway, the surroundings of the residence boast the same exceptional design and timeless elegance.
