For more than 130 years, the home's past has held a special place in Washington DC history. It was originally commissioned by George Prince, a prominent photographer of U.S. Presidents and was designed by Thomas Franklin Schneider, one of DC most prolific Architects, famous for works like the Smithsonian's Arts and Industries Building, The Cairo on 16th & Q, and Eastern Market on Capitol Hill. In the 1920s, the building became the MuSoLit Club, which for many decades was one of the city's most exclusive African American, invitation-only clubs and an epicenter of social, intellectual, political and cultural life.
1327 R St NW was rebuilt by Four Brothers Design & Build into a Boutique Condominium Residence. The developer worked with Architect and Designer, Sarah Snouffer, to transition 6,170 Sq. Ft. of historic property into two upscale, welcoming and open residences that took full advantage of the 25-foot width; extraordinary for a Washington DC townhome. Through the team's skill and talent, they carefully crafted 4 levels of soaring space into two, awe-inspiring living spaces; each measuring over 3,000 Sq. Ft. Thoughtful tributes to MuSoLit Residences rich past can be found through the designer's preservation of the large entertaining spaces, high ceilings, the use of salvaged joists to accent custom built-ins and the restoration of the front facade's historic integrity. A purposeful mix of high textural counter and tile materials, black, brushed-brass and architectural bronze metals, 5” plank White Oak wood floors throughout, Miele paneled built in appliances, and a neutral color palette, intertwine into a rich tapestry of serenity and sleekness at every turn.
