Property description

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

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

The townhouse is exceptionally large - 1000 square feet of indoor living space. Featuring high ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and period finishes. Enhancing those quarters is a private screened-in back porch. Nestled in the trees, it's the perfect place to relax after a day of business or sightseeing.

The bedrooms are nicely sized and comfortably appointed. The mattresses 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 for your cooking needs. Groceries can be purchased just down the way at the corner market.

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

The DuPont Metro Station is just a few blocks away, and taxi's and Uber cars are everywhere. Bike rental stations can be found on many corners throughout the city.

If you're bringing a vehicle, street parking can be arranged with advance notice and an additional fee. Garage parking is also available nearby.

Wireless internet and cable television are included.

Keywords: Safe! Clean, Upscale, Historic, Mansion District, Embassy Row, Kalorama, DuPont, Georgetown, Metro, Screened Porch, Capitol, Museums, Zoo, Quiet!

Please Note: I book on a first-come basis. A sleeper sofa is available to expand the sleeping quarters. And the decor is constantly evolving!
