Why we have a crush on this property:

Having grown up in an old brick house, I am extremely partial to a brick home. So when I saw this brick rowhouse, paired with a glossy black front door and a big window box just waiting for springtime blooms, it instantly had my heart.

Inside, the first floor’s foundation of original wood plank flooring, recessed lighting, and white walls is simple enough to welcome any combination of eclectic decor. Even if you were to decide to dress everything in neutral tones, I love the baby blue walls that enclose the staircase, paired with the royal blue stairs. It reminds me of a portal in Chefchaouen, Morocco, or some beautiful oasis filled with color.

Past the bright orange-and-yellow closet door into the kitchen, two windows bathe the terracotta-colored tiles and open shelves in sunlight. Upstairs, three bedrooms unfold, including one with a ceiling fan and ample closet space and another with golden-yellow walls and lots of open shelving.

Ascend another set of steps — these ones painted in a vibrant shade of red — to the third floor, a whitewashed attic with slanted walls, brick accents, and a skylight. Make it your yoga zone, your art studio, your writer’s retreat, or whatever else you need for your year of rest and relaxation.
