HISTORIC 1897 VICTORIAN
This home is a real historic home from American History. Built in 1897, this home has been added to Maryland's list of Historic Sites. The tin ceiling, large windows and trim will take you back to what living in an older home was really like. (of course there is a modern fully furnished kitchen and full baths!)
There are two master bedroom suites including a private bath, 3 king beds, 2 queen, and 1 full. Several of the bedrooms are 17 x 17 - HUGE! There is also a porch off the front and a large front yard with a completely fenced in backyard in the rear.
Hyattsville, Maryland was incorporated in 1886 and this is one of the first plats of land laid out. I often like to think about the original owner of the home who made a living as a printer. The Windsors were married and raised four children in the home. The Windsor family expanded the home to the rear to make room for a growing family. This is a great neighborhood with lots of local coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores and things to do right here with easy access to the museums, The White House, Capitol Hill, and Smithsonian.
ACCESS TO MONUMENTS, CAPITOL, THE WHITE HOUSE AND MUSEUMS
Hyattsville, Maryland has very easy access to Washington, DC.

I just fell in love with the facade of this historic old home with all of it's charm and warmth. This home is located in Maryland, but is just over the Washington DC line. It's in an up and coming neighborhood with wonderful people and homes to visit. I have lived all over the United States and have just recently found out how wonderful Maryland really is. The neighborhood is a registered Historic District with many historic homes that have been renovated.
My neighbors surrounding the property are a wonderful mix showing Washington DC flavor. Lawyer next door, young families across street, Grampa directly in front of house, Spanish lady who keeps the yard perfect, young family right next door. All are nice families and there are always people walking around in the neighborhood.
From my picture, you can see how much I really enjoy spending time with new friends from Maryland. We are at one of my favorite places in Washington DC - The National Cathedral. The building is an amazing structure with beautiful stain glass windows, building structures and an outside garden. I always go the top of the church to look at the views whenever I go. Find the elevator in the front to see the most amazing views of Washington DC and the surrounding areas. We were here this day to attend the Ordination of a friend and I got blessed by the bishop.
This property is only 15 minutes from Federal Express Field and the Verizon Center. We are 15-20 Minutes to Most Monuments and Sites People want to visit, 30 minutes from Annapolis and Baltimore.
I think Washington DC is one of the best places to spend time with family and friends. There is just something here for everyone.
Patricia Moore purchased this house in 2005
Being a true Washingtonian, I wanted something close in to be able to easily visit Washington, DC whenever I wanted. Recently, we have had record snows here and I went out just to take pictures in the snow. I got photo's of new baseball stadium for the Nationals, The Capitol Building, The Smithsonian, Union Station, The 14th Street Bridge, The Cherry Trees covered in snow, the Washington Monument, The Jefferson Monument, The Lincoln Monument, The Roosevelt Bridge leading to JFK's grave and Arlington Cemetery, The Key Bridge, Georgetown, The Sequoia's, The Kennedy Center and then I went to Clyde's for a bowl of Chile and French Fries! I did all of this within 3 hours. OK, I admit it, there were very few cars on the road and I really love the snow. The photo's are awesome and it's a day I will never forget. Can you imagine what you can see if you stay here for a few days!
This property is also located within Maryland's Historic Heritage Trails and there is lot's of history right near the house as well.
There is not a better place to stay close to Washington DC and you really are close to everything!
Visitors will love being right next to Washington DC and if you really don't like to drive, there are several metros within 10 minutes of the house. There is plenty of shopping in Hyattsville, an outdoor shopping area in Bowie, Maryland and if you love the water - don't miss a trip to Annapolis which is only 25 minutes east of the property. The views of the bay are amazing and there is more outlet shopping over the bay bridge which is approximately 4.2 miles running over the bay.
There are some wonderful restaurants right near the house, Busboys and Poets is great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a latte along with wifi and great coffee. See my google map for more information on what to do right here in Hyattsville. There is a microbrew, Franklins which is one of my favorite restaurants within a mile of the house and if you want to try some down home cooking, try Carolina Kitchen located within PG Plaza and still very close to the house. There are also some really good Latino restaurants with really authentic food from El Salvador, Honduras and Mexico.
There just were not that many homes built during the late 1800's and you can visit all of Washington, Maryland and Virginia from this property and really get a wonderful feeling of what our Nation's Capitol was like back then and today.
The local farmers market in Riverdale within a 10 minute drive of the property even has a live band and yummy crepe's of all kinds.
The Riversdale mansion was built around 1790 and includes tours showing how the one of the first mansions in America was really set up years ago.
I really love it here!
Have a wonderful time staying here! There is just no other place like it!
Thank you very much for all loving care.
Thank you for the biscuits, for the Christmas decorations. The house is beautiful and we have been very comfortable. The temperature inside of the house was very nice.
We will speak about your house to ours friends.
Once more, thank you so much for make our visitation very nice.
Very nice house with a home feeling. Rooms had comfortable beds. Loved the gas appliances. The house is in a good location not far from the metro. The owner was very helpful and gave us the hot spots to go near by. Would love to stay again.
We really enjoyed staying in this home. It's an older house with lots of character in a quiet neighborhood. I had a family of 13 that stayed here and we all were comfortable. My 82 year old grandma stayed in the bedroom on the first floor that had a nearby handicap bathroom. The house is very clean and the owner is very helpful. There was a grocery store, pharmacy and Ihop less than one mile away. The commute to DC was a straight shot down Rhode Island that took all of 20 minutes. Thanks for everything Patricia!!!!

What a great house to stay in! We had plenty of room for all 14 of us! The owner was great and helpful with where to go and park etc... I can not wait to plan my next vacation and stay
Here and do more sightseeing of D.C. Thanks for having
Such a great place to stay!
Spring Break April, 2011...School group from California consisting of fourteen 10-11 year olds and two teachers. Finding housing for a group this large was difficult, but Patricia graciously allowed us to rent her home. We absolutely loved the house-it was spacious and had everything we needed. The Hyattsville area is wonderful, especially the people-everywhere we went, we received outstanding treatment. Thank you so much!!!!
The HomeAway.com Truckster stopped here and hosted a blogger in this house. It was very roomy and extremely clean! The blogger enjoyed here stay there and loved how gigantic the beds were. The owners also left a very nice personal gift for her and her child that was very appreciated by both. We made it to downtown D.C. in no time and also to a Bowie Baysox game very quickly. The house is in a great location in D.C. where it's not a long drive to any of the main sights. It's also roomy enough to host your entire family! In addition, it has both a front and back yard for the kids to play in. Perfect for bringing the family to the nation's capital!
Our stay at this property was incredible. We had a great time and Patricia was more then helpful every step of the way. She was more then willing to answer any questions we had. The house was beautiful as well and had more then enough room for all of us. We spent much of our time in the dining room sitting around the table playing games and conversing. There was also a nice table in the back yard where we spent time. Also for anyone who wanted privacy there were plenty of places for them to go.
