Category:W. Taylor Birch House, 3099 Q Street NW

English: This home is a good example of the "baronial" type residence that was so often built by wealthy businessmen of the period to proclaim their new status. The heavy fortress-like expression of the exterior shelter sculpturally rich and spatially grand major living spaces. The picturesque variety of the exterior helps to integrate the buildings with its surroundings and a difficult hill site. This integration was formerly enhanced by a unobstructed view of Tudor Place and by the existence of a building of similar scale and form on the opposite southwest corner.
