5535 Chevy Chase Parkway

Original Name: Madigan Residence
Year Of Construction: 1947
Address: 5535 Chevy Chase Parkway, NW Washington, DC 20008
Architect(s): J.J. Daly
Current Status: Residence
Original Use:

This unassuming two-story private home was built in 1947 and designed by J.J. Daly for Joseph and Nettie Madigan. There is an extensive contemporary addition built between 2004-2006 and appears to double the size of the original structure. It attempts to incorporate deco style with the use of glass block above a two-car garage. The house is yellow brick with black-framed and paned windows, the latter which were part of the renovation, according to the current owner as of May 2017. The only other interesting architectural features are the tri-step brick protrusions under most windows of the original facade. This step feature is repeated at the second storey level above the front entrance in the otherwise flat roofline.
