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.

  • Price: $1.85 million

The most striking feature of this 1,850-square foot row house is the landscaping: a stepping-stone path leads from a side terrace to a back patio and a lush garden in the backyard.

Both the lower level and the main level open up to outdoor space. The master bedroom is also large, with the area for the bed sectioned off from a large living area with built-in shelves and enough room for a piano.

    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.
