For $3,135,000, this five-bedroom Georgetown single-family home has left the market. Curbed DC first reported on the property in November 2017 when it listed for $3,595,000. The structure was built by JC Developers with interiors designed by Spaced Out’s Taylor Deering and exteriors from landscape architect Goffin Gardens.
The site previously hosted an archaeological dig in July 2015, which found items like a metal cuff link engraved with a tiny crown, pottery shards, amber glass medicine bottle, and animal bones. A 19th-century house that previously occupied the lot was once owned by Yarrow Mamout, a local celebrity who became famous in 1819 after Charles Wilson Peale, who painted presidential portraits, painted his portrait. Mamout was a former Muslim slave who was taken from Africa in 1752 who eventually gained his freedom and became a homeowner in the neighborhood.
Inside this newly built townhome, there are high ceilings, recessed lighting, and wide plank hardwood flooring throughout. In the main floor, there is an open floor plan with a kitchen that offers stainless steel appliances, a tile backsplash, and an island with bar seating and a built-in sink. The countertops are all marble.
In the lower level, there is a recreation room, laundry room, and an extra bedroom and bathroom, making the area suitable for an in-law suite if needed. According to the listing, there is also a built-in speaker system inside as well as a private garden outside.
