Modern Living, Historic Charm

This semi-attached row house in DC’s Georgetown neighborhood, constructed in 1891 and previously renovated in the 1980s with an addition, has undergone a modern update while preserving its historic charm. The original layout featured small, poorly configured spaces, particularly the kitchen, which was inefficient and isolated from the rest of the house. To address this, we reconfigured the rear addition to create a spacious eat-in kitchen and pantry that capitalizes on the scenic views of the beautiful backyard. The addition not only improved the organization of the kitchen but also created a seamless connection to the newly repurposed family room, flowing effortlessly into the living and dining areas. The primary bedroom and bathroom were fully renovated, incorporating a walk-in closet and a second-floor study to complete the suite. Guest bedrooms on the third floor and lower level were also renovated, and a new gym was added on the lowest level with dedicated side yard access.
