About Deborah Knorr

I am a contractor who specializes in restoration of historic homes in Washington, D.C. My wife and I have lived since the late 1990s in a 1876 Victorian home in LeDroit Park that I spent almost ten years restoring.

Deborah Knorr purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Deborah Knorr chose Washington DC

This is a unique area of Washington, D.C. with great history and architecture. We have enjoyed meeting vistors from around the world in the year that we have offered the townhome as a vacation rental.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property, which I cannot recommend highly enough. We were 7 in our party, so were very comfortable spread over the 4 bedrooms. I think it would be crowded with 14 though. The house was clean and tidy and all the furnishings and equipment are of the highest quality. Patrick, the landlord, was very friendly and helpful. Although on one occassion we were warned at the metro that the area was not safe to walk around at night, we felt perfectly safe walking to and from the metro, though we did not do this late at night. It is a short metro ride to the centre of Washington. Highly recommend hiring bikes from Thomson boat and cycle hire as a way of seeing the main sights. Do not bother with the Double Decker bus tours - they do not run frequently or regularly, nor do they keep to their scheduled route and stops. A complete waste of money and a precious days sight-seeing.

Owner's Response: This is a very safe neighborhood from the Metro stops. The area is established as a historic district. I live in the area and I find it to be as safe as any location in DC. This is the only neighborhood that I would live in DC. I love it, it is quiet and friendly.

Outstanding

The townhouse has an incredible location! It's well kept, beautiful, and full of privacy. Mr. Belmar is a perfect host, and we highly recommend the house.

Nice old style house.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice old style house. The basement was very attractive for the young boys. The up stairs need fixing and down stairs need rails for safety. The living room windows need curtains or shades. The house is very good for short stay. However, when we arrived, the house was very cold and we had to spend the first night with no heater until we knew how to operate it. I wish that it was put on, even on low temperature.

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

As a first time vacation renter, all I can say is I wish I had known about this in the past! The house is beautiful and well equipped. The location is excellent; we came to DC for a wedding and rented a car, so the garage was an amazing bonus. We absolutely enjoyed everything about the house. It is big enough for far more than our family of six and we all hope to be able to stay here again in the future.

Nice Home Close to Convention Center

  • 5 of 5

I rented the home for myself and 3 colleagues for the ADA meeting at the convention center. It was perfect. The garage was big enough for two cars and the 3 full bathrooms made morning rituals painless. I would definitely recommend the home for others to rent.

Gathering of friends

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 8 adults resided in this beautiful home. Plenty of room. Played cards at the big dining table, bedrooms were very comfy, and DC was so great to tour - with the metro being walking distance away. Would absolutely return to this house.
