Southwest Waterfront townhome description

In Southwest Washington, DC, tucked away near the water, is one of our new favorite properties. (Can be bundled with vrbo.com/486908 to sleep up to 10 persons. 486908 is literally in the building next door.)

Located on a quiet, one-way residential street, this Federal Style contemporary is one block west of the Nationals Stadium, and four blocks east of the lovely Washington DC Waterfront, which includes the award-winning architect-designed Arena Stage.

Perched just far enough from the Capitol to feel like you've left the Lobbyists at work, you are in fact only 10 minutes by car, and even less by metro from THE Capitol Hill. The townhouse is centrally located three blocks from the Navy Yard Metro and a short walk to the many parks and attractions. There is a new Safeway, Starbucks, and CVS about 7 minutes from the home, and a slew of new restaurants have opened on Barracks Row only minutes away. If you like the outdoors, the number of small urban parks within this density is really good. Some of my favorites are Canal Park (http://www.capitolriverfront.org/go/canal-park); Tingey Plaza (www.capitolriverfront.org/go/tingey-plaza); Garfield Park)www.capitolriverfront.org/go/garfield-park); The Yards Park (www.capitolriverfront.org/go/the-yards-park); and Diamond Teague Park (www.capitolriverfront.org/go/diamond-teague-park).

This townhouse has a front entrance with on street parking and a rear entrance with parking spaces for two. The rear entrance brings you through an open and large patio, and through the French doors and into the living area. The front entrance is a more formal main level entrance thru a common vestibule.

The ground floor living area has a generous west facing living room, with double french doors, high ceilings, and generous sized windows. Comfortable and elegant, this tastefully decorated living area has a Pier 1 sofa, 2 oversized chairs, and 2 occasional chairs. Floor lamps as well as recessed lighting create multiple opportunities to curl up with a good book on a lazy saturday or rainy sunday.

Across from the living area with views onto the terrace is the office area with writing desk, retrieved from a Mandarin Hotel renovation a few years ago. This Mahogany Art Deco Contemporary piece has a chinese red insert drawer that sits below a removable glass top. With stainless steel anklets, the legs of the desk look very elegant and sanguine. Just the perfect setting to open up that MacBook and do some work.

Adjacent to the living room is the dining area, with seating for 6. This oversized glass top table uses as a base 2 pieces of Black African Granite, mined in the caves of South Africa near Johannesburg. It was cheaper to purchase than to ship!

On the opposite side of the dining room wall are the kitchen and powder room. The large eat-in kitchen, with its African slate tile floor, was renovated in 2008 and has all stainless steel appliances. The refrigerator has a water dispenser, the oven is electric, as is dishwasher and microwave oven. There is generous counter space with under-the-cabinet lighting. The kitchen has a circular wood block table with chairs that looks out onto the quiet street though 2 ivy-surround windows. There is a flat screen television in the kitchen.

The powder room is painted in Ralph Lauren's Hunting Coat Red. There are both a Kohler Pedestal Sink and Kohler Faucets.

The 2 bedrooms are located on the upper floor and are accessed via the staircase off the entry room hallway. The front bedroom has a 2 poster Queen Bed. There is a Duncan Phyfe upholstered settee and antique small coffee table, perfect for a nice evening read or morning coffee before heading downstairs with the group. This front bedroom, called the Master, has 3 custom built closets along the south wall. This bedroom shares a hall bath.

The rear bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with marble tiles, a rainshower showerhead, Kohler pedestal sink and oversized medicine cabinet. This rear bedroom has 2 Antique Mahogany Double Beds, with large flatscreen on adjacent wall. This bedroom has good closet space and storage using open storage cubes.

This is a perfect package of a good location, tastefully appointed, quiet and relaxed home with access to Baseball, Metro, Shops, Restaurants and the Waterfront. This home is perfect for the family visiting on vacation, the business executive bringing his or her family, Baseball enthusiasts, or anyone seeking an International Flair on a yet decidedly American experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and wish it had been longer.Bernard takes good care of his guests and gave us the name of his driver who took us on a short tour of the city, gliding through traffic with a smoothness we've never experienced in a taxi in the big city...

This was our first foray into VRBO territory and it could not have been a more pleasant and rewarding experience. We're seasoned home exchangers, so the idea of sharing another person's living quarters
was not foreign to us. What a pleasant surprise, though, to discover this stylish and comfortable living space just a short distance from all the major sights of the Nation's capital. We were not only treated to all the comforts of our own home, we were also helped through the
process by a helpful and accessible owner, who was quick to respond to our orientation questions about the arrangement, the apartment and the environs without hesitation. Forget the pricey hotels. We would
strongly recommend this apartment if you're looking for a comfortable, safe, first-rate stay in DC...

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: I'm a TV Network executive who travels alot. Originally from NC, I have been living in DC since 2003. I also split my time between my homes in NYC, NC, and Atlanta. But DC is the best city ever!

              Why the Owner Chose Southwest Waterfront:
              I purchased this property right before the Baseball Stadium was built, and have seen this neighborhood literally transform before my very eyes. The Stadium has transformed the energy of the area. I love to sit on the terrace with a glass of wine and hear the Baseball Stadium cheers!

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              The thrill of being in this neighborhood comes from when I walk out my front door, look to the left, and see the shining dome of the Nation's Capitol building. It is a significant and tangible energy booster, and a reminder of the freedoms that we take for granted in this country.
