About the Property
3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Classic D.C. Residence
Moving from our house and walking east on Calvert Street will bring you to Wisconsin Avenue, a vein that leads to the bustling commerce hub of Georgetown. At the intersection of Wisconsin and Calvert you will see the Zagat-applauded, Cali-Mex restaurant, Surfside (my favorite) where afterward, you can melt a milkshake at 'Max's Best' homemade ice cream where you might see the Veep eating a cone as his mansion is across the street and beyond the softball field. Enjoy a Sunday date at the 'social' Safeway and walk across the Avenue to look at the wares of the weekly bazaar. Moving south, you can take a tour of the splendid university campus or historic mansions and play tennis on public courts. Further down Wisconsin, you will find boutique clothing shops, antique bookstores and high-end shopping that embody the heart of Georgetown. As the day wanes into night, you could enjoy the view from the waterfront and walk alongside an impressive surviving relic of the American canal-building era, the C&O Canal.
During twilight, the intersection of Wisconsin and M populates with a mixed palette of personas whose evenings may begin at one of the classy tapas restaurants and end at one of the various bars and nightclubs that concentrate at the corner of Wisconsin and M Street and continue dotting north to reach the late-night establishments surrounding Wisconsin and Calvert. These include: Bread Soda - where you can play shuffleboard and eat a nice cheese platter with your drinks; Town Hall for a talented barkeep's taste on a good ol' fashioned; or the young professional nightclub, the Mason Inn, where you can dance and easily walk home from.
A quick cab or bus ride will take you to metro stations at Dupont Circle or Foggy Bottom, where you can access most landmarks in the city easily and reach any of the Smithsonian Museums, National Mall memorials, or the Capitol complex.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

We are in a neighborhood close to one of the most active areas of Washington, DC! Walk down to Georgetown for boutique and designer shopping or take a hike through lush and mysterious Rock Creek Park. We are a mile-and-a-half away from the waterfront of the Potomac River where you could catch a massage, movie, and end a warm summer day with a kayak ride. Just up the road is the National Cathedral, and if you would like to brush up on history or enjoy fine art, travel down to the Smithsonian Museums and National Mall where you can immerse yourself in the heart Washington, DC. If you'd like a Capitol tour, I would be happy to arrange this. Also, White House tours are available, though I would need about four months in advance to book as they are in high demand. If you desire a more low-key afternoon, we are close to many coffee and tea shops as well as fine dining restaurants nearby. Even if just walking through our neighborhood on a summer day, you will find our neighbors' front lawns flowing with colorful flowers and well-kept patios, as well as overhanging gingko trees that provide just the right amount of shade.

About the owner: I am a Washingtonian who was born and raised in this house before moving to Colorado. From Colorado, I went to high school in Maine, then college at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. I finally returned home after college and developed professionally in this city of opportunity. I love this home and all of the memories it has provided both for me and the guests who have stayed within its walls. My prerogative is to share the good feelings fostered within this house with travelers who need a comfortable base when exploring the District.
Why the Owner Chose Glover Park (Washington, DC, USA):
This home has provided happiness for family, friends and tenants for the past 34 years. It has become more beautiful after remodeling the kitchen, installing bookshelves, and rebuilding the upstairs, while I have played my part in crafting a new deck and maintaining the property for the past three years.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
I don't know how else to say it: the house has great chi. Neighbors have stopped by just to peek at our overarching dogwood tree and front yard. The lighting is what really does it though. This house has a feel for the dynamics of light and how it makes a room appear lively, especially in the living room and kitchen. Seamlessly moving from sophisticated to modern to comfortable, this house puts together different ambiances to form one unique experience.
