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.

Fabulous multi-family stay

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 5, 2014

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.

Great place for our family

We stayed in Sebastian's home while visiting our son at Georgetown. It was fabulous for two couples, our teenagers and 3 year old grandchild. It was an easy walk to Whole Foods for groceries and Wisconsin for shopping. Beds and sheets were comfy and it was wonderful to have a large living room and dining room for us all to be together. Sebastian was extremely helpful on anything we needed.

Perfect House!

I never take the time to write reviews but our stay in Sebastian's Georgetown home was everthing we hoped for and more. From my first phone call with Sebastian, he was kind, helpful and incredibly professional. I was stressed out, trying to find a place for my whole family (6 adults, 3 kids) to stay while in DC for a family wedding. As soon Sebastian and I spoke I knew I had the place and could not have been more grateful. Once arriving, my sister called me to say the house was "perfect", and it was. Clean, comfortable, warm, supplied with all we needed and even a welcome basket!! We could walk to get coffee and delish Vietnamese food and all the events we attended were an easy cab ride away. Any advice I needed Sebastian had answers for and they were always spot on and helpful. The taxi Über app he recommended was beyond helpful and shockingly easy. We will stay at this lovley home again and even plan trips knowing we have such a great place where we can all meet. Incredibly grateful.

One of the best!

An eclectic gem in a quiet Georgetown neighborhood. Close to shopping, dining and transportation. The owner is a true gentleman who is attentive to his guests. Three large comfortable bedrooms, two vintage bathrooms with plenty of hot water for three couples showers in the morning. Well appointed, reflecting the owners eclectic taste for furniture, art and interesting objects. The late 40s, early 50s kitchen with modern appliances, splashes of red highlights puts a smile on your face. A great outdoor deck for enjoying your breakfast, coffee or an evening glass of wine. A great library, cable, wi-fi and sound system. Parking is on street and although a dense neighborhood we had no problems finding parking for two vehicles (parking permit required which the owner provided). An ideal base for couples, friends to use for a Washington trip. (the two bathrooms are upstairs which were not a problem for the 6 of us all over 65 years of age). If we return to DC for a visit, this would be our first choice.

The townhouse was clean and a perfect combination of both old and new. Very comfortable, made more so by Sebastian's graciousness. He was nice enough to have wine and chocolates waiting for us when we arrived. We did invite him to visit and I'm sure he thought we were all crazy!! The location was perfect and we always felt safe, which was the reason we picked this property. It was so nice to have restaurants and shopping within walking distance.

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.
