Listing We Love: An Eclectic Georgetown Mansion with Color Everywhere

Who doesn’t love trippy wallpaper, teal bookcases, and magenta light fixtures? During a time in real estate when every renovation can start to look the same — subway tile, Shaker cabinets, gray-painted everything — this Georgetown home breaks the rules.

Each room has its own personality, from the light and airy millennial-pink solarium to the dining room, decked out with floral chandeliers and wallpaper decorated with budding tree branches. This restored home, which was originally built in 1948, has a 36-foot-long living room, a library, and a master wing. A highlight is the outdoor space, which features a courtyard with lush landscaping, a fountain, large brick patio, and private pool.
