White-Washed Bricks and Quite a Sunroom in Georgetown

In Georgetown, the whitewashed brick that composes the exterior of this semi-detached Victorian is echoed in its interior. The washed brick creates an accent panel surrounding the fireplace in the living room, where built-in shelving and cabinetry line the wall on either side and the bay window enjoys a large built-in bench seat. The kitchen also has an exposed brick accent wall and built-in glass shelving encased in a picture window. One of the more interesting rooms in the home is a skylit sunroom on the main level that has a fireplace and wood-paneled walls. The master bedroom has a bay window seating area, and the lower level has a bonus room that can serve as a fourth bedroom. The house also has a wooden roof deck with treetop views of the neighborhood.
