Property description

Reserve now for the Scottish Christmas Walk, December 5-7. You will feel at home in this spacious (900 square feet) apartment featuring a living room, home office, bedroom, full bath, kitchenette, laundry room, patio, and backyard. Knotty-pine paneling and wall-to-wall carpeting lend coziness to a three-quarter basement with a private entrance in the historic district of Rosemont, an easy 12-minute walk to the King Street or Braddock Road Metro stations. Nearby Old Town and Del Ray neighborhoods offer a wide variety of restaurants, shops, parks, and galleries.

Named for a Philadelphia Main Line neighborhood, Rosemont is both gracious and safe. This bungalow was built in 1917 from a plan by the Stickley Brothers of Arts and Crafts Movement fame. After a day of touring or working, relax with board games, books, magazines, tv, or enjoy the patio and backyard. From the Metro it's minutes to and from DC and National Airport. Walk to Old Town or catch the free trolley at the King Street Metro. On-street parking does not require a permit.

Walk to Old Town, a city pool, YMCA, Whole Foods, Crate and Barrel Outlet, bookstore, coffee and wine shop, tennis court, and parks.

Well-stocked kitchenette has a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, electric tea kettle, Brita water pitcher, dishes, utensils, coffee, and tea. You control the thermostat and can expect towels, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, clock radio, laundry supplies, wifi, DVD player, and cable tv.

For a $10 service fee plus cost, send a grocery list to have your basics upon arrival.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: My work as a folklorist takes me around the country, and this apartment reflects my eclectic travels. I've loved living here for 20 years and set up Camp Serendipity to help others feel at home while on the road. I am happy to help you plan your stay. The name comes from a painting I bought in rural Louisiana depicting a 1917 fishing camp. It hangs in the apartment's living room and reflects my love of serendipity since my home was built in 1917 and like that old Louisiana camp, this place is also a great getaway spot.

Why the Owner Chose Alexandria:
Living on a quiet block equidistant to two Metro stations allows me to get into DC quickly for meetings and for fun and to enjoy neighborhood walks to parks and a new coffee and wine shop, dinner in Old Town, lunch in Del Ray.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Older homes have always appealed to me, especially bungalows with big porches, which abound in Rosemont. This has been an ideal home for me.
