Georgetown houses typically follow a certain aesthetic: classic, charming, and full of luxe details. But this gutted and renovated 1860 stone house on the side of the C&O Canal utterly defies that expectation. With exposed stone walls, an open floor plan, modern finishes, and that Quaker-contemporary kitchen, it’s far from cookie cutter. Yes, it’s small. Yes, it’s very expensive. But that location, location, location…

The serene front view.
Exposed beams add rustic charm.
A breakfast table would tuck perfectly under the stairs.
Exposed stone walls the Civil War-era home’s good bones.
Sleek, modern fittings update the bath.
