We stayed at this property for parent/student orientation at Catholic University of America (CUA) in August 2016. It is a short drive/walk to CUA. The house is on the end of a 3 house unit. it is an older house that appears to be recently renovated. It is a typical east coast row house. There is a combined living room, dining room on the first floor and a small but usable kitchen in the back. There is a bathroom on the first floor with a cool LED lit faucet. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms with double or queen size beds. There is a full bath upstairs that works well. In the finished basement, there are two queen sized beds and a full bath. There is central heat and air with window units upstairs, which keeps the house comfortable in the summer. There is little furniture in the bedrooms besides the beds. The lock works well. One slight negative, is that there is a very slight musty tobacco smell when you first enter the house. It doesn't smell like anyone recently smoked in the house, but I detected that smell each time I entered the closed house. Once inside, I didn't notice any smells. I am sensitive to tobacco smoke, but I didn't find it offputting.
The neighborhood is a middle class neighborhood with free street parking. I had a problem with the neighbor in 1225 when I arrived. We arrived just after 11 PM, the car loaded with our family of 5's luggage as well as all of my son's belongings he was taking in to the dorm. Our minivan was quite full so I didn't feel comfortable leaving all of our stuff in the car overnight. There was no parking on the street at that time of night. In front of 1225, there was a handicapped spot. I had planned to stop in the handicapped spot to unload and drop off my family, then park the car in a legal spot. I pulled the car into the spot and was fiddling with the lock box, when the resident of 1225 came out and said I couldn't park there. I told him, that I wasn't parking, just unloading and I would move my car after I was done. He started yelling at me, telling me his wife would be home any minute and he was going to have my car towed. He was acting like he owned the street. I wasn't in the mood for an altercation and a spot had opened up across the street, so parked the car across the street. We were unloaded before his wife came home. Beware the neighbor.
