About the Property

3 Bedroom, 1-1/2 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

This home is a beautiful historic house in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, DC. The house is located on the quiet and beautiful Swann Street, a 5 minute walk from Dupont Circle and close to many national monuments and great restaurants. Historic Georgetown is a scenic 15 minute walk away. This cozy house is ideal for both short visits to DC for parents visiting college students, weddings, or a trip to our Nation's Capital, as well as longer stays for family get-togethers like Thanksgiving.

The first floor of the house includes a living room (brand new couches), foyer leading to a dining room for 8, a half bathroom, and a fully stocked kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops that will make your stay feel like home. The second floor of the home consists of a generously sized master bedroom (brand new king size bed), two additional bedrooms, and a full bath. Further, the basement has a large additional family room and a laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer. The basement also includes an old bar from when the house was a former speakeasy where, according to the original owner, Louis Armstrong used to play! The house includes designated parking for two cars behind the house, a very valuable commodity in DC.


Swann Street is close to wonderful restaurants, the famous U Street Corridor, lovely art galleries, Meridian Park, a short walk to the the White House, the Smithsonian Museum and all the beautiful monuments of the National Mall.

This home benefits from easy access to both the red line at Dupont Circle Metro Station and the yellow/green line at U Street metro station. Both are a 5-minute walk away. Bus transportation is also available close by and it is always easy to get a cab. Ronald Reagan Airport is 15-20 minutes away.

Our Favorite Neighborhood Spots:
Lauriol Plaza (corner of Swann and 18th) - Mexican, great atmosphere & margaritas
Rosemary Thyme Bistro (corner of 18th and S Street) - Mediterranean, great service
Busboys and Poets (14th and V St.) – great breakfast
Ben’s Chili Bowl (1213 U St.) - local restaurant, chili and hamburgers
Dupont Market (1807 18th St.) - great for breakfast, coffee and sandwiches right around the corner on 18th St. (202-797-0222)
Sushi Taro (1503 17th between Church and P St.) – Japanese cuisine


Essentials:
Safeway is on 17th street, two blocks away.
CVS is on 17th and P St., one block further down than the Safeway. There is also another CVS on Dupont Circle.
Whole Foods is located on 16th and P St., a 5-minute walk away.
