The house is a short walk to the Columbia Heights Metro station and just twenty minutes to Amazon~s National landing.In the early part of the 20th century, most of the neighborhood was developed in the Victorian architectural style. Irving Street, like many other distinguished locations in Mount Pleasant, is lined with fine row houses. These were built for affluent Washingtonians when the neighborhood was still virtually a suburb, south of the Piney Branch Bridge joining it with Crestwood to the north. The area was still undeveloped farmland in 1900 when 1633 Irving Street was built.In order to combat the heat of the summer, the house was built up on a full story of living space. This centuries-old piano nobile floor plan allows for optimal air circulation to help cool the house. The front door is approached by a set of stairs to a generous covered porch which, in addition to providing living space, also helped to keep the house comfortable during the summer months. The exterior of house is ornamented with the rich vocabulary of decorative elements from the late 19th century including dentils, festoons, and brick corbelling, all of which were hallmarks of the Victorian style.The house features an imposing central staircase with original wood detailing, a large skylight, original pine flooring, and five wood-burning fireplaces. The first floor public rooms offer superb ceiling height, original woodwork, the first of the five fireplaces, a powder room, and a renovated kitchen which opens onto a deck and the rear garden below. The second floor offers two bedrooms each with a fireplace that currently serve as a family room and office, as well as a renovated bathroom, and a laundry room.
