Chevy Chase house description

This is a high quality, 3 BR 3 BA single family home in one of the best neighborhoods in Washington, DC. The house is located on Livingston St., NW, 2&1/2 blocks off Connecticut Ave., zip code 20015. The 20015 zip code is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the city. It is safe and quiet, yet close to downtown and the museums and monuments and all the other attractions the Nation's capital has to offer. There is a chic commercial area close by at Connecticut Ave. with shops, restaurants, banks, grocery stores, Starbucks, a restored vintage movie theater, a community library, an old fashioned diner, etc.

The house is also close to the Friendship Heights Metro station. If you are bringing a car, your free visitors parking pass (provided by owner for up to two cars) will enable you to park for free within 2 blocks or less of the Metro stop. Otherwise, Metro is a 6-block walk or a brief bus ride. It is a pleasant walk to Metro through a pretty neighborhood with the Starbucks and a great deli on the way. There is also a bus, just steps from the house, which takes you to Metro in less than 5 minutes.

Friendship Heights has probably the best shopping in the city with very high-end stores such as Tiffany's, Cartier, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Neiman Marcus, Roche Bobois and Brooks Brothers. It also has TJMaxx, Filene's Basement and everything in-between: Bloomingdales, Border's, small boutique shops, etc, etc.

The house has three bedrooms and two full baths upstairs plus a 3rd full bath in the basement. There is a queen sleep sofa in the living room. There is also some extra sleeping space in the basement with the 3rd new small bath with shower. Downstairs is a large living room with a 51" big screen HDTV and fireplace, separate dining room, kitchen, and screened back porch with table and chairs overlooking a large, fenced back yard with a BBQ/smoker grill and some lawn furniture.

For stays of one to two weeks, rent is $300. per day ($2100. per week) with extra days after the first week pro-rated @$300. per day. For example an 8-day stay would total $2400., a 9-day stay would total $2700., etc. Lower rates can be negotiated for stays of more than 2 weeks.

For stays of less than a week, there is a 4-day minimum. Rent is $350. per day on weekday nights and $450. on weekend nights (Fri., Sat., & Sun.). For example, a four-day stay, with arrival on Thurs. and departure on Mon. would total $1700.

There are higher rates for stays which include holidays and also higher rates for spring break and the Cherry Blossom Festival. These holiday rates generally add about $50/day to the rent.

For all stays, a $1,000. security deposit is required and a $200. departure cleaning fee.
Rent includes all utilities, good quality linens, wireless internet, cable TV, all furnishings, dishes, etc.

Rental rates assume normal use of the house for families or groups of up to six people. Extra charges apply when more than six people are using the house. Extra charges also apply if you want to hold an event at the house, such as a birthday or graduation party.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1998

          About the owner: I am a semi-retired physician. I still work part-time. I have lived in Washington, DC most of my adult life except during my medical training when I lived in Chicago, Providence, RI and Boston. I love Washington. It is a unique, exciting and beautiful city. I think it is, perhaps, the most beautiful city in the world, with only a couple of possible exceptions. In addition to just relaxing and enjoying the beauty and excitement of this city, you could spend several weeks here and still not run out of major attractions you would not want to miss. There are at least 17 major museums downtown, including the Smithsonian complex of museums and National Zoo, plus, of course, the monuments, White House, U.S. Capitol, Supreme Court and the Library of Congress, Kennedy Center, Union Station, etc. Then you can also go to Mt. Vernon, Old Town Alexandria, Georgetown and possibly even Annapolis, MD. (By the way, in addition to the Air and Space Museum downtown, there is also the newer, huge Smithsonian Air and Space Museum near Dulles Airport.) If you stayed in Washington, DC for a month, you would not run out of fun and exciting things to do. In fact, although I have already lived here for years, and there is still plenty left for me to see.

          Why the Owner Chose Chevy Chase:
          This is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the city of Washington. It is a quiet and safe residential area which is nonetheless right in the city and close to downtown. It is a very "upscale" neighborhood populated mostly by professionals who don't want to commute in from the suburbs.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          It is remarkable that this particular street is right in the city of Washington and yet is so quiet you can hear a pin drop. The house is only 2&1/2 blocks off Connecticut Ave., one of the main arteries of the city. (Connecticut Ave. ends at the White House.) However, Livingston Street has the advantage of being interrupted at the next corner. This block is not a cul de sac but has a similar effect. There are very few cars except those which belong to the people who live on this block. We get almost no through traffic. This makes Livingston St. unusually quiet and also very safe for children and pets. Yet just 2&1/2 blocks away is Connecticut Ave. with all sorts of shops and restaurants, library, movie theater, Starbucks, etc. All the amenities you would want are just a few steps from the house.
