(DC tax office) - 1999

Rose and Rose, Architects designed this two-story house for dentist Henry Carr in the early 1920s.    Its distinguishing features include clipped gable roofline with deep bracketed eaves and the arcaded wraparound porch with massive piers decorated with stone insets. An extremely tall chimney stack with two paved half shoulders that rise above the main two-story block of the house appears out of proportion to the one-story rear wing from which it arises.
