Walter began to design this house while he was still in Washington . He engaged architect John Skirving to supervise construction during his absence. Two dozen drawings survive for this house, which Walter moved into in 1865. Constantino Brumidi, whose mural adorns the rotunda of the Capitol, did frescoed ceilings for Walter’s personal residence here. The house was demolished in the early twentieth century.
