VIBRANT MOCK-TUDOR-STYLE HOME IN UPPER GEORGETOWN

Georgetown Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Classic D.C. Residence

Our house abuts Glover Park and is built in a neighborhood where sidewalks are shaded by Ginkgo trees and gardens are finely tended to. You will be able to watch the flow of our healthy community while sitting on our porch swing, greeting neighbors who pass by. Inside the house, we have a custom-built bookcase with a large collection of classic and contemporary literature, as well as a synced media system that can play YouTube videos, music and Netflix easily from your iPhone, or with our remote. Our kitchen has remained a modern staple complimenting the vibrant-classic feel of the living room and dining room. The outdoor patio is recently rebuilt and is a tranquil place to kick back with a good Patterson or Foer novel and eat some fresh-grilled delights. Upstairs we have one main bathroom with a tub; a guest room with a double bed, a guest room with a queen-size bed; and a master bedroom with another queen-size bed, boudoir, and side bathroom with shower.

Moving from our house and walking east on Calvert Street will bring you to Wisconsin Avenue, a vein that leads to the bustling commerce hub of Georgetown. At the intersection of Wisconsin and Calvert you will see the Zagat-applauded, Cali-Mex restaurant, Surfside (my favorite) where afterward, you can melt a milkshake at 'Max's Best' homemade ice cream where you might see the Veep eating a cone as his mansion is across the street and beyond the softball field. Enjoy a Sunday date at the 'social' Safeway and walk across the Avenue to look at the wares of the weekly bazaar. Moving south, you can take a tour of the splendid university campus or historic mansions and play tennis on public courts. Further down Wisconsin, you will find boutique clothing shops, antique bookstores and high-end shopping that embody the heart of Georgetown. As the day wanes into night, you could enjoy the view from the waterfront and walk alongside an impressive surviving relic of the American canal-building era, the C&O Canal.

During twilight, the intersection of Wisconsin and M populates with a mixed palette of personas whose evenings may begin at one of the classy tapas restaurants and end at one of the various bars and nightclubs that concentrate at the corner of Wisconsin and M Street and continue dotting north to reach the late-night establishments surrounding Wisconsin and Calvert. These include: Bread Soda - where you can play shuffleboard and eat a nice cheese platter with your drinks; Town Hall for a talented barkeep's taste on a good ol' fashioned; or the young professional nightclub, the Mason Inn, where you can dance and easily walk home from.

A quick cab or bus ride will take you to metro stations at Dupont Circle or Foggy Bottom, where you can access most landmarks in the city easily and reach any of the Smithsonian Museums, National Mall memorials, or the Capitol complex.

I am a Washingtonian who was born and raised in this house before moving to Colorado. From Colorado, I went to high school in Maine, then college at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. I finally returned home after college looking for and beginning a career and seem to have found my way in the office of a Congressman from New York. I love this home and all of the memories it has provided both for me and the guests who have stayed within its walls. My prerogative is to share the good feelings fostered within this house with travelers who need a comfortable base when exploring this city.

Sebastian Herrick purchased this townhome in 1983

This home has provided happiness for family, friends and tenants for the past 34 years. It has become more beautiful after remodeling the kitchen, installing bookshelves, and rebuilding the upstairs, while I have played my part in crafting a new deck and maintaining the property for the past three years.

I don't know how else to say it: the house has great chi. Neighbors have stopped by just to peek at our overarching dogwood tree and front yard. The lighting is what really does it though. This house has a feel for the dynamics of light and how it makes a room appear lively, especially in the living room and kitchen. Seamlessly moving from sophisticated to modern to comfortable, this house puts together different ambiances to form one unique experience.

PERFECT DC EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful duplex. We were there for our daughter's graduation from Georgetown. Sebastian was the perfect host and had the house ready for us when we arrived. The rooms are most comfortable, well decorated and felt like home. So many nice extras! The location can't be beat and we walked to many of the local shops and eateries. If we get a chance, we'll be back!

AU GRADUATION

  • 5 of 5
My daughter graduated from AU and we rented this home for her family to stay at and gather at. It was excellent. A quite street with plenty of gathering room. It is in a convenient area, close to grocery shopping and some restaurants. You should know that it is more in Glover Park, but Georgetown is walkable. A great place to bring a family. The owner was very accommodating and easy to reach. The one drawback for older individuals is that all bathrooms are upstairs with the bedrooms.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four loved our stay in Sebastian's Georgetown house. From the moment we walked through the door we felt right at home. A basket with wine, chocolates and flowers greeted us on the dining room table. The house was spotlessly clean and well stocked with any items that may have been forgotten at home, such as shampoo, toothbrushes and many other toiletry items. The large master bedroom is on the street, so being a light sleeper I thought it might be a little noisy, but the street is pleasantly quiet and we slept soundly with the windows open every night. In addition, the master bed was really comfy. Sebastian was readily available to answer questions about how to get about or suggest restaurants, yet with his apartment on the lower level walkout, we never felt our privacy was infringed upon. There is a bright, sunny kitchen with a great deck off the back of the house. We entertained our D.C. friends out there and enjoyed a glass of wine before dinner each night. We loved this area of Georgetown, because it was quiet in the neighborhoods, but had plenty of action and nightlife for our two children in their twenties. We didn't expect our D.C. visit to be a relaxing vacation because we had so much to see and do, surprisingly it was. I attribute that to Sebastian and the effort he puts into making sure that his guests are comfortable. He has worked hard to make this house a home.

FABULOUS MULTI-FAMILY STAY

  • 5 of 5
This Georgetown home was the perfect spot for our multi-family week long trip to DC for a wedding. It is in a quiet neighborhood a few blocks away from upper Georgetown with coffee shops and boutiques. We enjoyed early morning walks/ jogs through the neighborhoods, down to the Potomic, by the cathedral etc... We had a car, so transportation was not an issue, but it is not too close to a metro stop if you won't have access to a car. Sebastian was more than helpful, checking on us regularly to see if we needed anything. He even left us a bottle of champagne for New Years Eve. The home is well equipped with a full kitchen, even stocked with spices etc.. Three large bedrooms with comfortable beds allow for good separation of space. The two bathrooms are small, but worked fine for us. There is no bathroom downstairs and there is a good flight of stairs to the bedrooms. This was a minor concern for us as we were with an elderly couple, but again it worked out fine. I would highly recommend this for a DC stay.

We are in a neighborhood close to one of the most active areas of Washington, DC! Walk down to Georgetown for boutique and designer shopping or take a hike through lush and mysterious Rock Creek Park. We are a mile-and-a-half away from the waterfront of the Potomac River where you could catch a massage, movie, and end a warm summer day with a kayak ride. Just up the road is the National Cathedral, and if you would like to brush up on history or enjoy fine art, travel down to the Smithsonian Museums and National Mall where you can immerse yourself in the heart Washington, DC. If you'd like a Capitol tour, I would be happy to arrange this. Also, White House tours are available, though I would need about four months in advance to book as they are in high demand. If you desire a more low-key afternoon, we are close to many coffee and tea shops as well as fine dining restaurants nearby. Even if just walking through our neighborhood on a summer day, you will find our neighbors' front lawns flowing with colorful flowers and well-kept patios, as well as overhanging gingko trees that provide just the right amount of shade.
