This Week's Find sits along the pedestrian-only path on the Georgetown canal, and was gutted and completely revamped in 2016 to include an open floorplan and modern amenities. 

In its former life, the property was a carriage home for mules and horses back when the canal was a vital part of DC's trade infrastructure, according to the listing agent. Sections of the home, including the facade, exposed brick walls, wooden beams and stone accents, are original to the space and act as windows into the property's history.

Main level.

The main floor now consists of a living space, bathroom, laundry area, full kitchen and door that leads to the enclosed brick parking and patio space. A wraparound counter space leads from the living room into the kitchen, offering a bar and extra storage. Two small steps up from the living room, the kitchen has a breakfast bar with a sink, white cabinetry, dark countertops, stainless steel appliances and a textured stone wall.

Raised back patio.

All three bedrooms are located on the top floor, and the primary suite offers two windows, two full-sized closets and a full bathroom with a gray stone shower. The other bedroom features a built-in bookshelf between the closets. The third bedroom is currently staged as office space and has floor-to-ceiling windows, along with its own exit to the raised back patio.  

The listing is zoned for both residential and commercial use, so opportunities for the future owner(s) are wide-ranging. More details below.
