Overview

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.

About Sebastian Herrick

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

Why Sebastian Herrick chose Georgetown

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.

What makes this townhome unique

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.

beautiful, safe, quiet georgetown property

  • 5 of 5
loved our stay at this property. had many contacts with the owner, both by phone and email, prior to our stay. the owner was always very helpful, courteous, and quick to reply. when we arrived at the property, we found chocolates, wine, and fresh flowers. the pictures really do not do justice to the property. it is located is a very nice, safe neighborhood in georgetown minutes away from restaurants, a gym, and a very nice grocery. the property was very nicely decorated and clean and quiet. highly recommend the property and will stay again. thanks Herrick!

A true home away from home

  • 5 of 5
It is quite obvious the moment you pull up to this adorable, well maintained home that the owner takes great pride is his accommodations. Yes the home is spotless, comfortable in size, and contains all the accoutrement one would need while away from home. All of this is easily seen within the photos. What you can’t see in this listing is the professionalism and hospitality of the owner. Sebastian excels as a host, going above and beyond any expectations I ever had for a VRBO property owner. I reached out to Sebastian a day before my arrival, and was fortunate for his last minute availability. I was greeted with a bottle of wine, Sebastiani no less (the attention to detail was not lost on me). His genuine care for guests shines through his infectious, positive demeanor. I will be back.

Note: While it is almost certainly never used due to the gorgeous, oversized dining room table just feet away, be sure to take note of the one-of-a-kind kitchen table. There are many eclectic details within the home that will keep you on your toes.

Super clean Spacious Home in Georgetown Area

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in DC! Sebastion's home is very nice- it exceeded our expectations! It was clean and well decorated. Plenty of room for my husband and three teenagers. Very close to Georgetown attractions and a short drive to the Mall. Sebastion was helpful in getting us a parking permit and providing tips on the area. I would highly recommend this property.

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!

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.
