Two Weeks For a Georgetown Home on the Canal

This three-bedroom home on the Georgetown canal was gutted and completely revamped in 2016 and spent about two weeks on the market in December before finding a buyer. In its former life, the property was a carriage home for mules and horses, and sections of the renovated home, including the facade, exposed brick walls, wooden beams and stone accents, are original to the property. 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. 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.
