Elegantly set on one of DC's most coveted residential streets, The Piano Estate has been given a complete renovation by premier developer, Coba Properties. The brand new project retains the historic 1920s Georgian brick structure's charm while bringing forth the design and amenities sought out by today's 21st century buyer with design by award-winning Akseizer Design Group.
Home to several esteemed owners over the last century, "The Piano Estate" name gives a nod to the original residents, Jessie & Homer Kitt. Mr. Kitt was a founder of the present-day Jordan Kitt's Music Company which has played a substantial role in the Washington area music industry providing services to high-profile events and institutions, and to-date is the largest piano and keyboard retailer in the United States. While The Piano Estate maintains its stately historic facade, the completely renovated 21st century interior is one even the Kitts would not recognize – and it is ready for its new original owner.
