In a bid to keep its house in service, the owner of a farmhouse on Washington’s Dupont Circle neighborhood is constructing a new one in the area.
A construction crew is putting up scaffolding and installing a fence around the home.
A sign that reads “This is the home of the farmhouse” is hanging above the property.
The $3.2 million home on the street was once a farm house, built in the 1960s.
It has now been subdivided into six smaller houses, all of which have been purchased.
“I don’t think it will ever be replaced.
It’s a beautiful home and it has served as a family home for years,” said owner Scott Wiegers.
Wiegers said the new home was designed by architect Paul A. Miller and has a large front porch and a porch-like roof, with an open back patio.
It will also have a deck, which will be a welcome addition to the home’s landscaping.
The new home is scheduled to be completed by the end of March.
The new home will be among the last to be built by Miller’s Miller Brothers LLC, which specializes in residential, commercial and institutional real estate.
Miller also has other homes in the Washington area, including a home on Pennsylvania Avenue and a house on Mount Vernon Avenue.
The family-owned Miller Brothers had to sell the farm in 2019.
Miller has built a reputation for building homes with a lot of detail.
“We’re building a house that’s a little bit bigger than it needs to be,” said Wiegs.
He says he’s had the house for more than 40 years, and it’s never been a problem.
“It’s just the fact that it’s so much smaller than what it needed to be.
There’s no reason for it to be this big,” he said.
Miller is looking to sell some of his other properties.
He hopes to sell his farmhouse for $3 million to $4 million.
Miller says the new project will be more affordable than the original, which cost $4.2-million to build.
“This will be my home for many years to come.
It would be wonderful if we could make it affordable,” he told CBC News.
