                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
                          I enjoy hiking and nature which is why I chose this location to call home. It's wonderful to be in close proximity to Washington DC with open space, nature and great hiking trails steps away!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          When staying at Sligo Creek Manor you will enjoy the best of both worlds. The close proximity to visit Washington, DC during the day and a tranquil and luxurious large home to return to in the evening. I have spared no expense in trying to offer as many special touches and amenities as possible including the outdoor hot tub, the best bedding and duvets I could find, a heated toilet seat, massage chair, Sirius Satellite wired throughout, furniture I've collected through my travels to Asia and Europe and electronic gadgets that will entertain you on a day you feel like staying in. You will enjoy the neighborhood in all seasons. The fall foliage is striking, the spring flowers and flowering trees bloom in abundance, it's lush and green during the summer and you'll enjoy the outdoor hot tub especially during the winter.
