A Charming Georgetown Rowhouse on a Tucked-Away Street

The curb appeal of this rowhouse tucked away on Cecil Place in Georgetown is hard to beat, however it is not a very large home once you get inside. Like a lot of smaller rowhouses in the neighborhood, the footprint of this two-bedroom is tall, but not very deep. The kitchen and dining room are on the second floor of the three-story house, and the master bedroom overlooks a courtyard. Extras include a wood-burning fireplace and a patio out back.

  • Full Listing: 1041 Cecil Place NW (map)
  • Price: $779,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Year Built: 1850
  • Listing Agent: Lenore Rubino, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Update: This home went under contract late on Wednesday.
