Up the skylit open-tread wooden staircase, the master bedroom also enjoys the half-moon bay window and has a color-blocked exposed brick accent wall. Another bedroom has access to a terrace with stairs to the ground-floor deck, which is just beyond the wide galley kitchen with sage green subway-tiled backsplash on both walls. The house also has a one-bed, one-bath English basement.

Nine Days in Near Northeast

This renovated Near Northeast rowhouse found a buyer in just over a week and has a modernized-traditional aesthetic. Inlayed borders in the hardwood flooring delineate the rooms on the open-concept main level, where an angled fireplace anchors the living room and a standalone doorway creates a segue to the dining room. Whitewashed exposed brick runs along the stairway up to a skylit landing, where all the bedroom doors have transom windows. The second story has two spacious en-suites, each with a huge picture window: one with a near double-height ceiling and exposed brick accent walls, and the other with a separate sitting area with exposed brick accent wall. A rear deck is just off of a sunroom on the ground level. The Victorian dwelling is another with a one-bedroom English basement with separate C of O.
