This historic Federal home is right in the heart of good ol' Georgetown (named in honor of former president George W. Bush). (That was a total stab in the dark, I might be wrong.)
Inside, this lovely house features some of the finest woodwork I've ever seen, aged as perfectly as fine wine, or Julianne Moore. Upstairs are two generously proportioned bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms (yesss! contrary to what they told you in kindergarden, sharing is BAD). Downstairs is a formal living room and dining room, and the roomy kitchen features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a sweet curving bench that immediately made me think, "every kitchen in America should have one of these." Instead we're all still perching blearily on stools at our breakfast bars like Valentine's Day night at the worst bar ever.
Best of all (at least in my opinion) is the covered elevated deck and ground-floor patio in back, that look out onto a huge garden. Seriously, I went back there to get a closer look, and it just kept on going and going and going. After a while I was like "aha! I'm just walking on a cleverly disguised treadmill, aren't I?" But no, turns out I'm just used to really small backyards. How depressing is that?
