If Walls Could Talk / 26.03.2012

St. Patrick's Day has come and gone, but that is only the climax of the love affair between our country and The Emerald Isle. Everyone has, or claims to have, some link back to Ireland. My wife firmly places her heritage on that island, but alas, I trace my roots back to Ayrshire and the Scottish Lowlands -- I don't think the Irish will hold this against me. Everyone's favorite country is a great one to kick off a twist on our favorite series "If Walls Could Talk" ... the embassies version. Given the grandeur of the homes along Mass Ave. and scattered throughout the city, these are sure to uncover some great stories. I'm sure the Embassy of Ireland at 2234 Massachusetts Ave. NW holds many fascinating tales.

This is the first in a four-part series of posts covering the colorful homes on Cliffbourne Pl. NW, between Calvert St. and Biltmore St. You've seen these before, the green, yellow, red and blue homes, perfectly complementing each other. I imagine that I'm not the only one curious about the history of the four houses in this rainbow row of historic homes. So dive into the first home ... the one at 2515 Cliffbourne Pl. NW.
