The street level entrance brings you to a small foyer. To the left of the foyer is a den with a full-sized sleeper sofa, full bath and a small walk-in closet. The brand new washer and dryer are also on this floor.
A flight of stairs leads you to the main floor which features an open floor plan and original heart-of-pine floors throughout.
The well appointed chef's kitchen includes a cozy breakfast nook. From the kitchen, French doors open to a private garden patio perfect for morning coffee or evening cocktails.
The rest of the main level is divided between an elegant formal dining room and a cozy living room with a large feather-down sectional, entertainment system and double-sided gas fireplace. There is also a powder room located on this floor.
The top floor features two master suites each with a private full bath.
The larger master suite at the rear of the house features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the rear patio and garden. The king size Tempurpedic bed affords a distant view of the Washington monument. The adjoining master bath includes a double-sink vanity, a marble walk-in shower, and a clawfoot tub.
The second master suite at the front of the house features a plush queen size bed, views of the street below, and an attached bathroom with a large marble shower.
A stroll through the historic neighborhood with its beautiful tree lined streets, stately row houses, and rich history transports you to another time.

Other Things to Note
Like all big cities Washington can be noisy. Homes in Georgetown are right on the street, and the older homes you'll find here are generally not the most soundproof. If you are sensitive to noise you may want to consider alternative accommodations
