Washington Fine Properties Lists Ambassadorial Residence for the Government of Ireland

Washington Fine Properties is pleased to announce the offering of 2244 S St NW, which has served as the Ambassadorial Residence for the Government of Ireland for nearly 60 years. The estate will be listed for $8,000,000.

 

The Frederic Delano House was designed by early 20th century architect Waddy Wood in 1924 for Frederic Delano, maternal uncle of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and member of the Federal Reserve Board.

 

A captivating Federal Revival facade with a circular driveway and ornate limestone portico reveals an expansive, airy interior of over 10,000 square feet, featuring dramatically proportioned rooms, exquisite period architectural details, and superb social flow. On the main level, public rooms with 13' ceilings walk out through Jefferson-style windows to the wide, south-facing terrace, pool, and nearly 1/2 acre of surrounding gardens with unrivaled sunlight, privacy, and stunning monument and city views.

 

Margot Wilson of Washington Fine Properties is representing the sellers of the residence.

 

"The provenance of this magnificent residence is uniquely Washington. In its 100-year history, Members of Congress, the Diplomatic Corps, and several Presidents have enjoyed the hospitality offered here, overlooking the extensive garden and spectacular view of the Washington monument. For the right buyer it’s an opportunity to continue the storied history." – Margot Wilson
