Washington Fine Properties Sells Historic Laird-Dunlop Coach House

“John Laird, a wealthy tobacco tycoon, built the detached brick house in 1799 as a carriage house to the Laird-Dunlop estate. Since then, it has been host to several prominent owners including James Dunlop, a law partner of Francis Scott Key and former chief justice of the D.C. Circuit Court, Robert Todd Lincoln, the eldest son of Abraham Lincoln, Arnold Sagalyn, one of Eliot Ness’ “Untouchables,” and Helen Burgess, the granddaughter of J.P. Morgan. It was Burgess who separated the coach house from the rest of the property, retaining much of the land for herself and adding a ballroom for proper entertaining.”

“I am so excited for the purchasers,” added Casey. “The best part of being a real estate agent is making our clients happy and the purchasers of 30th Street could not be more thrilled!”
