History of the Luxury Homes in Foxhall Crescents
The Design of these Luxury Homes in Foxhall Crescents
The original Arthur Cotton Moore homes at Foxhall Crescents were designed with nine different floorplans, all in cast stone and pale brick, with a Palladian front. Some of the houses have facades that are concave or convex, depending on what side of the street they’re on. Because of the hilly site, homes on one side of the street have three levels in front, two in back; on the other side of the street, it’s two in front, three in back. A few homes were built later in Foxhall Crescents in a more classic Georgian style. Those homes are equally large.
The original set of homes was built by Crowell and Baker, another Washington institution. They ranged in size from slightly under 3000 square feet to 4,700 square feet, all with circular staircases, some with elevators. In the early 1980s, the homes were priced from around $400,000 to close to $700,000. Today, they range from approximately $2 million to $3 million.
