Downtown house description

You will fall in love with this grand old home just like we have! It has been painstakingly restored and modernized by its architect and interior designer owners. Beautiful original oak and pine woodwork and 100 year old heart of pine floors along with completely new plumbing and HVAC systems that will let you enjoy the historic location with modern conveniences. While you certainly do not need a car with this location, there is secured parking in the rear of the property. If you have more than one vehicle please let us know and we can help you obtain additional street parking permits.

Located in an historic district right downtown, anything you could want is minutes away. There is a Metro (subway) station just four blocks down the street. Easy access to the monuments and Mall, Capitol Hill, China Town, the Central Business District - you name it.

Our neighborhood has many trendy restaurants, bars and coffee houses all within a couple blocks walk. There are a few 'city sized' grocery stores and organic markets within a couple blocks. Let us know what you are looking for and we can help point you in the right direction! There is the quaint Anna Cooper Circle at the end of our street (perfect for reading with a cup of coffee) as well as a large park with a playground. The swings are a hit with our kiddo. The home has been completely refurbished and all of the historic details maintained. It took us 5 years of hard work and we think you will enjoy the end result :) HVAC system and all appliances are top notch. It is comfortably furnished with stylish mid-century modern and contemporary furniture and artwork, but is still very child friendly (we have a two kids in diapers so we know :-) All of the linens and bedding are of the type we would use ourselves - we think you will enjoy. Cable TV and high speed Wifi are included. The kitchen is well equipped and if there is anything you need that is not there, please ask.
Sleeping for up to 10 people: There are three bedrooms upstairs. Master with a queen size bed and ensuite bath. Middle bedroom also has a queen size bed. Rear bedroom has a full size bed and access to balcony. Living room has one queen size pull out sofa and one twin size pull out chair accommodating up to three. The parlor has a twin size day bed that sleeps one.
Check in is after 4pm. Check out is by 10am.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Interior Designer and Architect owners have lived in DC for 15 years. We travel constantly (with two kids) and hope to have made this home the type of property we would enjoy staying in.

Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
Location and the Architectural Style. The staircase is amazing :) We lived here for five years and LOVE the area and the home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Right in the middle of everything but a quiet comfortable retreat at the same time.
