A10 minutes walk takes you to the Mount Vernon Metro Station and to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. A 30 minutes walk takes you to The White House, The US Capitol, The National Mall and the museums. The city's largest grocery store is about a 10 minutes walk.
This house has 4 bedrooms with 3 king beds and 2 twin beds, a pullout sofa in the living room and can accommodate 10 comfortably. (If your group is larger then 10 you can also rent the first level apartment which is a 2 bedroom,2 bath accommodating 6 more). The living room with the pullout sofa can be separated with pocket doors and turns into a bedroom. 3 full bathrooms, one on the first floor adding to the convenience and the other 2 are on the second floor close to the bedrooms, with the master bath including a jet tub. A full kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a Viking Range provides everything you need to cook for your family and friends. The large dining room can seat 14 and has a warm and charming ambiance for those family dinners. This is an old mansion from a century ago updated and refurbished to the most modern style while keeping the old charm. The gas light fixtures (not a functioning system for safety reasons) and the antique and functioning Intercom system have been preserved. Wide staircase, hardwood floors in the entire house and a magnificent trim work all through the house give a sense of how the upper classes used to live in DC. The back porch has lights and a fan to keep cool in the summer overlooking the stone patio and the carriage house.
The redhead next to me is my wife Ana.
We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own ( not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle ( he thinks he is a giant). We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city, it really is and for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc. etc. there isn't any city that offers so much.
I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and enjoy doing what we do.
This is a unique apartment. We gutted out the old house and redid the entire house including the lower floor. Everything you see here is less than a year old and it is designed with great care, taste and quality.
