1442 Wisconsin Avenue NW.

This Week's Find is not the typical residential fare often featured on UrbanTurf.

Located in the heart of Georgetown, the three-story Italianate property is one of the more noteworthy buildings in the neighborhood, and has been home to an eclectic art and antique store called L'Enfant Galerie for nearly 45 years.

The listing, owned by the L'Enfant Galerie owners, has been featured in several movies over the years - including the 2017 iteration of Wonder Woman. The new owners could live in the residence on the top two floors while running a business on the street level.

A front door at the corner of the block leads into the open-concept showroom, and there is a private entrance for owners on the side of the building. On the second floor, there are five uniquely shaped rooms that may function as bedrooms, studios or private galleries.

Mixed-style cabinetry and stainless steel appliances make up the kitchen on the third floor, as a half wall divides this area from the formal dining space. The primary suite is the largest bedroom of the residence and includes its own bathroom with black and white square tiling.  Other key traits of the property include 10' ceilings, a multitude of large arched windows, and a sun-lit central staircase.
