D. Vogt, 2022
The group of houses at Nos. 2421 to 2427 was built in 1889 for Wm. Tayloe Snyder, designed by Chas. Burden, and built by Joseph Burden. According to the Historic District Nomination, these houses "offer simple interpretations of the English vernacular design that gained popularity with the emergence of the English Arts and Crafts style. This early use is unusual and indicates a level of stylistic awareness that was not typical of Foggy Bottom.... The recessed entries and individually proportioned fenestration add to the charming character of this row."
Star tie rods appear at the center of the house. The first floor façade is identical to 2421 I Street, except for the shutters.
