Once upon a time, there was a storybook cottage tucked away at the end of an enchanting road on the east side of the neighbourhood named for King George II. Strolling this lane, beneath its twinkling lights, past flickering gas lamps, bright blooms and facades in shades of pastel macarons, one has the feeling that it would not be unexpected to encounter a faerie~or at the very least, make a marvellous discovery. No. 9 Pomander Walk is such a revelation. A snug and charming refuge from life~s hectic concerns. Exposed wood beams shelter its living area, sunlight pours through rear and side windowpanes across hardwood floors, and the rustic white fireplace offers the promise of toasty winter nights. White French doors open to an outdoor reverie, framed by a minty fence, inviting a potted garden, or patio dining. Past the gracefully curved staircase and clever built-in storage, a cozy kitchen, just the right size to prepare romantic dinners, high tea and other delectables. Upstairs, a white bath, charming bed chamber and~a bit of whimsy~a chandelier in the closet. If you~re looking for a happily-ever-after sort of home, not too big and not too small, but just right~No 9 Pomander Walk is waiting for you. For the same price as a condo, own a Georgetown home with character, charm and privacy. A two-story, c. early 1800s, semi-detached brick rowhouse at the end of delightful Pomander Walk in Georgetown, lovingly cared-for, with recent updates. Pomander Walk is steps to Volta Park and two short blocks to all the fabulously unique East Village has to offer. It is one of four Pomander Walks in the world, featured on DC House Tour and Apartment Therapy. As WaPo reporter Linda Wheeler put it in her 1999 profile; "Pomander Walk in Georgetown is "almost magical," "a secret place" or "a little community," depending on who is talking about life on a hidden, dead-end alley that is lined with 10 tiny rowhouses, each a different pastel color." "Built as alley dwellings--small rental properties at the rear of larger houses--the buildings originally had no running water or electricity. Each housed two families, one to a floor. At the time, the alley was called Bells Court, named for Alexander Graham Bell, who lived close by and was one of Georgetowns biggest 19th century landlords, according to historians."
