Human Genome Doctor William Haseltine opens his Georgetown Doors.
By Deborah Dietsch
Scientist, inventor, entrepreneur, Dr. William Haseltine hardly seems the type of homeowner who spends time fussing over paint colors and furnishings. But, on a recent tour of his remodeled 1870s Georgetown house, this leader in genetic research makes it clear that he has done all the decorating himself.
“I enjoy it,” Haseltine says, pointing out the subtle blend of pink, golden and cream tones in his high-ceilinged, front parlor. “It’s relaxing for me. I’ve tried to make the home a warm and calming place.”
