At 1307 New Hampshire Ave....if you want to see opulent Victorian interiors, visit the Christian Heurich Mansion, also known as the “Brewmaster’s Castle”. ** furnishings are original! The Romanesque manse was built in 1892-94, 5 stories high including raised basement.
Heurich had humble beginnings born as the son of an innkeeper in Germany in 1842. He learn the trade of butcher/brewer from his father, as an apprentice. By the time Christian was 14, both his parents had died & he struck out on his own. The process of becoming a journeyman brewer was accomplished by working in several breweries throughout Europe.
Heurich’s sister who had immigrated to Baltimore, convinced him to come to America in 1866 to realize his dream of starting his own brewery. German/ Bavarian styled beers, a lighter lager were becoming popular in the US at this time, so opportunity was present.
Baltimore having 45 breweries, proved a great place to refine Heurich’s brewing skills & to learn English! In 1872 Heurich went into partnership with Paul Ritter & move to DC to start a brewery. Within a year that partnership dissolved, Heurich bought out his partners interests.
Thru the course of the next 2 decades, Heurich had the biggest brewery in DC, being the 2nd largest employer next to the US government. At the age of 70, Heurich was ready to build his mansion & enjoy the fruits of his labor.
Beloved & well respected in DC, Heurich’s business survived the Prohibition Era, and the German anti-sentiments of World War 1 & 2. He died in 1945 at the ripe old age of 102!

My thoughts on corner entrances are as follows. They only work on a home placed on a corner lot.
This home is getting some tlc and I cannot wait to see how they end up painting it. If you zoom in you’ll see how heavily detailed this house is. The overall theme is florals shown in the railings, gingerbread and gables. The gable ends all have their own unique design. In addition to the floral details there are also multiple types of shake siding including a whimsical wave motif. Even the chimney and chimney cap are lovely. The second picture is a screen grab of google street view from 2017. As you can see the exterior is undergoing a complete facelift.
