On a very important street of my favorite neighborhood in Washington, Kalorama, lies a house that has always intrigued me. The road T's, exposing the side of the house which is treated in a very grand manner; more grandly than the front facade in fact.

I really love this house for its beautiful symmetrical design but also the unusual colors: red clay tile roof, orange brick, french grey limestone, blue stucco and window trim. I've heard it was designed by John Russell Pope, does anyone know the backstory here?
