About the Property

Cottage, 2 bedrooms upstairs + small downstairs den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This unique home, known as 'Granny's COTTAGE' , has been updated and modernized, retains WARMTH AND CHARM, and is ideal for someone seeking a short-term rental (1-6 months), or for a family coming to see the WASHINGTON, DC sites!

On an acre of lawn and gardens, the brick cottage has 2 cozy upstairs bedrooms and wide wood plank flooring. Downstairs is a modern kitchen, living room with flat screen TV, dining room, small den with pullout sofa, and bathroom. A favorite feature is Granny's screened in porch where one can enjoy breakfast while watching Virginia's beautiful birds.

The home is 4.5 miles north of Historic Mount Vernon, and 4.5 miles south of Old Town, Alexandria. Within walking distance of parks for hiking and biking; minutes from the Potomac River and the American Horticulture Society (George Washington's River Farm). There is easy access to Washington, DC: 11 miles ride by car or bike, or an easy commute by bus and/or metro. The expansive yard has plenty of room for outdoor games and cookouts.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: My husband, three children and I moved next door to this property in 1984. The wonderful neighbor, who came to be known as 'Granny', maintained a lovely home, and we were fortunate to purchase it in 1999. We live next door to the property, and are available to renters for guidance. In the past several years, local families have rented the cottage while renovating their home, and international students have occupied it while in DC for a semester of study. When not working in the gardens, I work as a nurse, and my husband has his own business. Our Portuguese Water Dog keep us busy now that the kids are grown.
