Outdoor Beds and Fireplaces in Georgetown

This semi-detached, four-bedroom home in Georgetown has a few unexpected elements: a raised fireplace in the kitchen, a patio with an outdoor hearth and, for added coziness, a covered structure in the backyard containing a daybed. Besides the outdoor napping area, there are a few other cozy nooks, like a bed tucked into a cave-like area in one of the bedrooms and a steam shower in one of the bathrooms. Original features, like stained glass and moldings, are complemented by modern elements found throughout the house, like stainless steel appliances and a wall of windows leading to the patio. Right now, the owners are using the fourth bedroom as a large closet/dressing room.

    could anyone direct me to a dc real estate blog that caters to mere mortals? those of us who don't have $700K to drop on a house (yet also don't want a 600-square foot studio)? i like this blog at least in theory, but it gets kinda old and a little depressing only seeing places that i will never ever be able to afford

    @ uh Keep a closer eye on this site, they do a good deal of stuff on lower priced homes. Also, realistically, there aren't a lot of 400-500K homes for sale inside the DC borders.
