This Week's Find offers a unique chance to own property along the historic C&O Canal in Georgetown.
Built around the beginning of the 20th century, according to the DC Public Library, the listing has an interesting layout. The first floor has been a hair salon called the Fourth Lock since 1993 when it was opened by the building's current owner Arlette Coppock. New owners are invited to carry on Coppock’s tradition or come up with a new plan of their own for the main-floor shop front. Coppock is selling the building to enjoy her retirement.
The first level features knotty pine wood cabinetry, red brick flooring, exposed brick walls and wooden ceiling beams that have been painted black. Skylights offer natural light, and there is a fireplace in the corner of the backroom.
The upper levels of the home are a bit of a blank canvas, but feature the original wood floors, exposed brick, the same black wooden ceiling beams as the commercial unit, and windows that offer views of the canal. There is a small kitchenette on the middle floor.
The French architectural style of the property was likely a favorite feature of the previous owner, the listing agent said, adding that each D-Day, Coppock displays the French flag in celebration of her heritage.
More details can be found below.
