About the property

1 BD 1 BA 800 sq ft condo 2 blocks from Convention Center

This serene, carefully balanced one bedroom residence is the cutest little cove!! It is just the perfect fit for a stately city like Washington, DC. This wonderful apartment home is located on the basement level of a Small Boutique Building nestled in one of the most convenient and lovely blocks in the District. It is our newest addition to our portfolio, and is one of our favorite gems!

Located 2.5 blocks from the Convention Center and the Mt. Vernon Square Metro (Green/Yellow Line), this home is truly in the center of everything. This almost 1000 sq ft residence is perfect for the budget shopper who will not compromise on location or style. Recently renovated from top to bottom, this residence has a walk-ability index of 98%. There is truly no need for a car. You are one block to the 24 hour Safeway supermarket, Busboys and Poets restaurant, Starbucks, Chipotle, Hardware store, Capital One Bank ATM, and a host of restaurants, gyms, beverage stores, and of course—the Convention Center! You can hop on the DC Circulator Bus from the convention center to all major points of interest in DC. You can tour the city by taking the metro which is within 2.5 blocks of the residence. You can rent a bike @ Capital Bike Share, or if you choose to do it on foot, walk to Union Station or the US Capitol in approximately twenty minutes. You can walk to the trendy Penn Quarter or Chinatown/Gallery Place sections of the city in fifteen minutes. This is truly a pedestrian residence off the main street—a truly unique city experience.

The Residence

Upon entering the residence, you are greeted by an entry table with mirror, perfect for putting down packages or keys from a long day. The sofa and club chair are surrounded with lighting options, and the soft-brown leather ottoman is perfect for putting your feet up after strolling through the Nation’s Capital. The living room gets morning light which streams in from the 2 windows perched atop the exterior wall of the residence. The 26 inch flat screen television is also in this area. The owner has attempted to create an urban living space that is serene enough to have a cocktail or curl up and watch your favorite episode of Scandal.

As you continue into the residence, the open, U-shaped kitchen is to your right. The kitchen is complete with refrigerator, Maytag dishwasher, double oven, ceramic sink with garbage disposal and pull out faucet with sprayer.

To the left of the kitchen is the dining area, showcase by lovely bookshelves, painted in a Ralph Lauren Hunting Coat Red, which have been designed with the warmth of the residence in mind.

As you continue into the residence, near the end of the expansive hallway, the reading nook is perfect for curling up with that perfect book. Designed with reading in mind, it has great lighting, nice rugs, and will have you either reading or sleeping like a baby.

The laundry room is to the right of the reading nook, and hosts a stackable washer and dryer. Off the laundry room, the bathroom’s spa-like colors were designed with the thought of relaxing in the large tub and shower.

The bedroom was designed with warmth in mind. The walls are painted in a restful blue that allows you to feel the warmth of the bedroom. There is a 24-inch television in this part of the residence in case you would like to rest in bed while watching your favorite shows.

This residence combines a perfect package of an excellent location with a tastefully appointed, quiet and relaxed home. The host of restaurants, gyms, beverage stores, and of course—the convention center—allow you to enjoy the convenience of the city! Again, you can hop on the DC Circulator Bus from the convention center to all major points of interest in DC. This is truly a pedestrian residence off the main corridor.

This home is perfect for the family visiting on vacation, the business executive bringing his or her family, Baseball enthusiasts, or anyone seeking an International Flair on a yet decidedly American experience!

I am a consultant to a science foundation. purchased this condo in 2001

Why chose District of Columbia (Washington DC)

I purchased this property in 2001 when the neighborhood was on the crust of development. My how it has blossomed! The neighborhood is alive with several amenities within walking distance. A few steps away are the Starbucks and the Safeway; and restaurants and bars are alive with people illuminating a wonderful atmosphere. It has been a wonderful experience to watch the neighborhood flourish into such a vibrant and lively community!!

What makes this condo unique

I love waking up and hearing the city come alive. I always look forward to my morning stroll to Starbucks and interacting with the people who are out an about. Because we are in the heart of NW DC, I see and hear the Presidential motorcade just enough to remind me why I love this city! The close proximity to EVERYTHING makes this truly a FABULOUS neighborhood!!

Couple Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I would strongly recommend this property. The accommodations were wonderful and the location was perfect. A quick ($7) Uber ride to the national mall and short walk to the grocery store and restaurants. We loved staying here and would do it again!

Great location in DC

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my one week stay at this property. It is centrally located, convenient to the Metro and the Circulator bus for transportation, though I found I enjoyed my time the most by walking to my destination. Did not explore the restaurants in the area - I bought groceries from the Safeway instead. The unit is very comfortably furnished and well equipped with linens, kitchenware, and even some tourist information. There was minor noise from the neighbors upstairs, but not enough to be truly significant. I would definitely recommend this location to others planning a trip to DC!

Great location for all key Washington sites and sounds

  • 4 of 5

The property lived up to its description - good size, excellent amenities, convenient location. Zaneta was available as needed during our stay and provided excellent customer service. As we visited in October, the apartment was a little dark due to its basement location. On the plus side, it was easy to go to sleep!

The location was walking distance from everything we wanted to see. Being so close to the grocery store was also so convenient. We enjoyed Busboys and Poets (same block as Safeway). The Verizon Center is also close by and to rest our tired feet we also enjoyed a movie there one night. To head to Georgetown, I recommend taking the DC Circulator bus (2.5 blocks from the apartment) and only costs a dollar.

The neighbors above us had heavy feet but generally went to bed around 10:30 and up after 7, so they did not disturb us greatly, but something to consider when booking.

Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Zaneta responded immediately to all of my questions. Secondly, the location of this unit cannot be beat! We were 2.5 blocks from the Metro, 1.5 blks from a grocery store, 1.5 blks from the bike rental racks and about 5 blocks from Chinatown. We had no need to rent a car.

This rental is a basement unit and we never heard any noise from upstairs. It was very clean, well stocked and had everything we needed Also the bed was extremely comfortable.

I would highly recommend staying here!
