One of the Last of a Dying Breed in Georgetown
A block from M Street in the East Village, this three-bedroom house is one of Georgetown's last 18th century buildings, and its first owner was Nicholas Hedges, who is known for building the Evermay Estate. While the exterior was restored, the interior was completely renovated in a bright, minimalist style, with smart home integration, herringbone pattern flooring and recessed lighting. The kitchen has a marble waterfall island with matching countertops, backsplash, and hood cladding, as well as custom cabinetry on two walls and a hidden fridge.

The owner's bedroom has a pitched ceiling, and a symmetrical set of windows with the center panes swinging outward to look over the rear patio.
