A Month For Six Bedrooms in Georgetown

Recently renovated, this Georgetown home features lavish detailing and state-of-the-art amenities, as well as a large courtyard shaded by several mature trees. The home was on the market for about a month before going under contract, which is a fairly short time for a home with this price tag.

The primary bedroom on the second level includes its own sitting room and an en-suite bathroom with a double vanity sink and soaking tub. A kitchenette can be found downstairs, along with two other bedrooms and a living room. The backyard is permitted for a pool.
