Dupont Circle townhome description

A quiet, secluded, safe haven, located in the center of the city.

Elegant 2-bedroom, located on the 1st floor of a three-story historic townhouse. Situated on the west side of DuPont Circle, in Kalorama, the safest neighborhood in DC.

The home is exceptionally large - 1000 square feet of indoor living space. Featuring high ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and period molding. Enhancing those quarters is a private screened-in back porch; nestled in the trees, it's the perfect place for outdoor conversation or for relaxing after a day of business or sightseeing.

The bedrooms are fitted with queen beds and topped with freshly laundered linens, cleaned just prior to your arrival.

The kitchen is fully equipped, and if you're into organics, included is a Vitamix. Please feel free to use our spices and oils for your cooking needs. Groceries can be purchased just down the way at the corner market.

You are just a short walk to hundreds of cafes and upscale restaurants in DuPont and Georgetown, and within walking distance to the Capitol, all the monuments and museums and to the zoo.

The DuPont Metro Station - the Red Line, and the main artery running through the city - is just a few blocks away, and taxi's and the more upscale Uber Cars are everywhere. Bike rental stations are on many street corners nearby.

Wireless Internet and cable television are included, and a parking permit can be arranged with advance notice.

                          Owner info

                          About the owner: When my children were small I started my own business, where I taught hundreds of couples how to have safe, natural, beautiful births. Today, I am a writer that works from home. My desk faces the back garden, or if I'm in New York, the sea. Both places are a writer's paradise. My husband and I prefer quiet homes in residential neighborhoods when we travel, and offer our homes to like-minded people whenever we're away. We have 2 natural children, 2 children of the heart, and 10 exchange children. They are grown now, but still come and go, sometimes for weeks, and sometimes, if we are lucky, for longer. My hobbies include: Building tiny houses for the just-dumped-woman, surrounding myself with beauty, preparing delicious but nutritious meals, collecting old tablecloths, staying vibrantly healthy, keeping spiritually alive, learning about natural medicine, listening to blues music, traveling, reading, writing, going to our tiny cabin in the woods or to our wee little palace by the sea, chatting on the porch, annoying my family with practical jokes, dreaming big dreams and being a great mom.
