A Historic Alley Carriage House
Renovated in 2011, this carriage house is home to the owners of the U Street vintage and antique shop Good Wood and it shows. The entrance through Blagden Alley opens to the main living space, adorned in vintage brick and patterned wallpaper. The kitchen has mixed textures with marble and metal counter space, as well as commercial grade appliances.

The bedroom space has a sizeable built-in library, and skylights allow for another source of natural light, beyond the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the street. An upstairs patio connects to the bedroom and features privacy curtains and ample room for patio furniture.
