Bob Barclay purchased this townhome in 2000
The house is centrally located in Georgetown with off-street parking and walking distance to shopping, coffee shops, restaurants, entertainment, Universities, Hospitals, and Embassies.
This is a traditional historic carriage house converted to a 1 br home in the 1950's, and updated in 2011. It has a rustic feel with exposed rafters, red tile floor, red brick fireplace, and french doors opening to a private patio for dinner or sipping your favorite beverage when DC weather allows.
My husband and I had to stay in DC for about five weeks in January through February. Although the weather was bitter cold this place was warm and cozy with all of the comforts of home. The location was convenient to shopping and there was a range of interesting restaurants all nearby. We enjoyed walking through the attractive neighborhood even in the cold weather. The off-street parking was a real plus in Georgetown. The owner was available to answer all of our questions and the house was clean and well equipped--including, kitchen bath and Wifi. (We used the French press for coffee although there is also a drip coffee maker if preferred.) I am sure we would have enjoyed the private backyard with table and chairs if the weather was warmer. I hope we will be able to come back someday and spend more time in the DC area. There is so much to see and do.
Thank you for making this little home available to us!!
We loved our stay while working in DC for a few weeks. The neighborhood is lovely, and the home completely comfy, with all the basics. Walking distance to everything you'd need in terms of restaurants, grocery, etc.
Great choice for a couple, or someone solo. We also had my 10 year old for part of our stay, who said, "That's the comfiest sleeper sofa ever."
The back patio space is very sweet and a lovely spot for grilling dinner, or having coffee when the weather is right.
The only negative is that the street is prime ambulance route, hospital a few blocks away. Sirens are regular, light sleepers may want earplugs. But the charm of the space easily outweighs this.
We spent the month of July in the quaint, ideally located Carriage House. The owner, Bob, was attentive and always willing to accommodate....but quite frankly we were quite comfortable for our entire stay. Highly recommend.
I spent a month (June 2014) at this wonderful Georgetown carriage house, and can't imagine how anything could have made it better. The owner, Bob, made sure everything was perfect and was so kind and gracious to meet every need and to answer any question. I can highly recommend this place for a great vacation.
We rented this unit to attend a college graduation and found it ideal. Off street parking was a plus and we were able to walk to campus and the many attractions of M Street/Wisconsin Ave in Georgetown. Add in a helpful owner and it all worked.
My husband and I booked a weekend getaway for ourselves and could not have been happier. Every review, every detail was correct. We did not want for anything during our stay. The added bonus of off-street parking was great! My husband and I strolled the neighborhood and visited many recommended restaurants via the owner. He, the owner, was gracious, hospitable and checked to make sure we had made it safely to his home. We will certainly return and agree that is was 5 stars! I would post more but I think I am running out of room!
An urban setting with parks, hiking and biking trails. The Potomac river and historic C&O canal is an 8 block walk. Georgetown & George Washington Universities, many Embassies, and entertainment nearby.
