Look no further - this is truly in the heart of Dupont Circle and steps from the metro - unlike other listings we are not in the outskirts or located in an adjacent neighborhood like Logan Circle or Adams Morgan. If you are unfamiliar with DC, Northwest DC (NW) is by far the safest quadrant and even within NW there are big differences. The same goes for Dupont Circle - the closer in you are to the center, the safer and better, which is why our location is unbeatable! You won’t find a city neighborhood as safe and nice as the heart of Dupont Circle, which is one of the reasons we’re sure you’ll be glad you selected our home!
In addition to the superb location, what sets us apart from other rentals is our large courtyard with dining table and grill; when it's too cold outside to enjoy that, we have a gas fireplace in the living room to create the perfect cozy spot to retreat after a day of taking in the sights!
You'll feel relaxed and at home when you stay in the Carriage House, located in the heart of Washington DC's safest and best neighborhood. From this house, you are just steps to the metro (five minute walk), restaurants, shops, etc. and short walk to DC attractions (Georgetown, White House, National Mall, museums, art galleries) and 2 blocks to DC tour bus stop
The carriage house is a stand-alone two story apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and new hardwood floors throughout. Virtually all of the rentals on this site have neighbors above and/or below. Carriage Houses are unique in that they do not have other apartments above or below; however, most Carriage Houses have an alley entrance while ours allows you to enter through the front of the property so you have the benefit of both privacy and safety!
