1701 18th St. NW was built in 1906 as a grand mansion for Dr. William Duncan McKim.  It was designed by prominent architects Hornblower and Marshall, who also designed the Smithsonian Natural History Museum.  It is four stories, with a large stained glass window over the original music room of the mansion.

After its many years as a  private residence, it became the Taiwanese embassy.  In 2004 it was converted into 9 condo units.
