New Rental. Garden Apartment in renovated brownstone.
About Owner/Property Manager
Both Jeff and I enjoy city living and this was one of the reasons we decided to move back to DC after sending the last child off to College last year. Jeff bought the house back in 1992 and lived there for some years before moving across the Potomac to raise the family. We started planning our major renovation three years ago and started the project in early Spring of 2016. We moved in, in late October of 2017. It took some time to settle down as the work continued well into the Winter and following Spring, but we are now ready to receive guests in our beautifully updated home. The apartment was thoughtfully fitted out to provide comfort, efficiency and style. Its accessed by your own private entrance to the front of the house and we invite our guests to use the patio outfitted with table and chairs as a place to sit and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the passing pedestrians coming and going along our more secluded but equally busy street. We overlook the park to the front and the circle beyond. We love that we can walk everywhere and Jeff cycles to work and back as his office is in Chinatown. Wholefoods is a few minutes walk, as is Trader Joes and Giant. Restaurants, Theatres, Galleries and Venues are all within a short walk and we find we really don't have need for a car anymore. We also have a home in Ireland, in West Cork so we are not new to the HomeAway/VRBO family. In fact we are premier members there and look forward to welcoming guests to our DC home.
Owner/Property Manager purchased this Apartment in 1992
Why Owner/Property Manager chose Northwest Washington
The original permit for the house was submitted in 1893 by Judge Westel Willoughby. The house was finished in 1897 and the Willoughby family moved in that year. Willoughby was an interesting character and was originally from upstate New York. He put himself through law school by working as a carpenter. He then joined up and fought in the civil war, was injured and returned home and settled in Alexandria, where he later became a Supreme Court Judge. His wife and himself were active in the early Suffrage movement and he was also instrumental in changing the laws following the civil war to allow African Americans testify against Whites in a court of law. His love of carpentry shows throughout the house and we have restored many of the original details. The house itself has a varied history and was home to many notable figures following Westel Willoughby . The home became a little shabby after 1968, but was given a small facelift in the early 90's and maintained well until we decided to move back and gutted it! So if you like the feel and character of an historic property and neighbourhood, but enjoy the comforts of modern living and the convenient location . Then look no further !

Lovely stay near Logan's Circle in DC
We enjoyed our stay so much during our recent trip to Washington DC. We left to visit museums by day and returned at night to prepare dinner and ready ourselves for the next day of sightseeing and educational adventures. The downstairs studio apartment filled all our needs. All kitchen utensils were readily available. And washer and dryer was top of the line. Very nice amenities and plenty of closet storage for clothing. Great place!
Perfect place for a stay in DC
Very comfortable, well-equipped kitchen, and a perfect location. We stayed 3 nights, but you could be happy here for a considerably longer time. Lots of restaurants and stores very near.
I can’t say enough wonderful things.
A light and airy first class place, just beautiful!!
Top of the line appliances and every convience of home at your finger tips!
The location is prime for driving anywhere within 10- 15 minutes and walking to the trendy and fun 14th street!!
Marianne is the most gracious hostess and answered any questions within minutes!!
We were delayed with our flight for a few exhausting hours and she had snacks and wine waiting for us!! So thoughtful!
Would without a doubt stay again!!
You will not regret your selection!!
Great place in a great neighborhood.
Washington DC Gem
Marianne was wonderful and her place was perfect! This studio had everything you needed...even wine and cheese waiting for you. Great place!
Thank you. You were wonderful guests as well!
Clean, modern and a great location
We had a great stay at this Logan Circle property. The place is equipped with everything you need from tools for food preparation, to a steamer for ironing your clothes. It's within comfortable walking distance to the Washington Convention Center and nice restaurants. Be aware that it is a studio apartment. We expected a separate bedroom, but that did not deter our stay...at all. Thank you for providing such a nice place.
The location is perfectly situated on 12th Street, between P and Rhode Island Avenue. It overlooks Logan Circle to the front and 11th Street to the back. Steps to restaurants and theatre, music venues, galleries, bars and shopping. It's also only a few minutes walk to the Convention Centre and China Town with City Centre and Blagden Alley nestled between both - visitors can enjoy the many faces that DC has to offer. The Mall,Memorials and Museums takes approximately fifteen minutes to walk. While 14th Street and Shaw are practically on your doorstep.
