Together the two of us have combined our talents, resources and visions to create one of Washington's most talked about venues.
Anand Devadas purchased this House in 2009
Why Anand Devadas chose West End
Anand grew up in the area working for his father's photo studio in the 1970's. As photojournalists covering The White House circuit, before the days of digital photography, his father and he spent many long hours, days and years working in the area. He has lived and worked in Foggy Bottom during the days when every building was a magnificent historic Brownstone. As one of the last preserved historic Gothic Victorian Buildings in the area, Lisa and he have made it their quest to preserve this 100 year old historic building and to bring it back to its grandeur and luxury.
What makes this House unique
This gorgeous property has hosted a number of illustrious and controversial residents for the last 100 years. After developers began destroying history by demolishing these amazing Brownstone properties, the city finally stopped the carnage in 1971 by naming this block as an historic site. This home has been home for politicians, doctors, businesses, GW University fraternities, world travelers and as a World War II safe house, just to name a few of the residents. It is our honor to be next in line to be part of this historic phase in the life of The Castle In Foggy Bottom.
