Location matters. Walking Score of 94!!! Biking Score of 92!!!
When we decided to build out our basement apartment, we set out to make it something we'd like to stay in ourselves. We knew we wanted high end finishings, heated tile floor in bathroom, comfortable furniture, full size kitchen and appliances. We knew we wanted our family, friends and guests to feel at home. We succeeded. The apartment is spacious, bright and open.
You'll enjoy your own private entrance to the apartment including a nice terrace patio out front for your enjoyment.
The first thing you'll notice when you enter the apartment is how open it is and how much usable space is there for you. Next you will begin to notice the modern finishings and furnishings. The living area is large with lots a space to spread out and watch shows on the large flat screen cable TV. Prepare meals in the full-size kitchen or just sit and enjoy your morning coffee at the granite breakfast bar.
Entering the bedroom via pocket doors you'll find an wildly comfortable and adjustable queen size bed and able storage space in the dressers and walk-in closet. The bedroom also boasts a flat screen TV with cable.
The en suite bath is bright and fully appointed complete with heated floors, two shower heads, natural stone and ceramic inlaid tiles.
Of course, as with many basement apartments, the 7' ceiling heights are slightly lower than that of upper floors, but even at 6'3" this owner has plenty of headroom to spare.
NOTE ON NUMBER OF GUESTS: Though the listing states we can accommodate up to 3 guests, the sofa is not a sleeper sofa. Linens are provided to outfit the sofa for sleeping.
As your hosts, we'll provide you the best service possible with as much privacy as you'd like. We can certainly help you with any questions you have about the neighborhood, DC in general.
We're perfectly situation between two Red Line Metro Stations (Union Station and NOMA), each just a few blocks away. Also the new DC Streetcar running the length of H Street from Union Station to 26th Street is available free-of-charge (this will change in the coming year).
