An eye-catching gambrel roof with flared eaves is among the defining features of this 1920s Dutch Colonial Revival-style residence in Lafayette Square. Delicate molding, mortise locksets and a brick fireplace are in keeping with the vintage of the Mongtomery & Nibecker-designed home. Among updates, a chef’s kitchen features Carrara marble countertops and a herringbone backsplash.
