About Topher Cushman

Both Deb and I grew up in Upstate New York and have lived in our neighborhood of Capitol Hill for over 10 years where we met and have started our family.

Topher Cushman purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Topher Cushman chose District of Columbia (Washington DC)

In our opinion Capitol Hill is the best located neighborhood for taking in the City and its sights. It is also an amazing community with friendly neighbors. Its a small town village in the heart of one of the world's most powerful cities.

What makes this apartment unique

Stroll to the Market on the weekends, take a glass of wine over to the park in the evening or watch a storm come through from the front porch- you'll love where you are once you get here and look around.

Great value- perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in a beautiful area right across from a park with two playgrounds and jogging path. About a mile from the Capitol. Easy to Uber around. Very safe and worked out great for our family of four.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Cute clean place in an awesome neighborhood. We loved the park across the street- there were always families and people walking dogs around. Lots of really good restaurants within about a 15 minute walk. Worked well for our family of 4.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Good starting point for a trip to Washington, DC. 1/2 mile to Metro and Eastern Market using North Carolina Ave. Host provided umbrella which was useful as it rained several times while we were there. As noted in previous reviews, there is an active child upstairs but this did not bother us too early in the morning. Previous visitors had left Metro cards which often had money left on them and this will save you $2 for the purchase of the card itself. We left ours behind as well.

Great bed with a foam topper that did not become too hot. Fabulous pillows and lots of them. Air conditioning was supported by a fan as there is no central air.

Convenience stores were nearby but very limited in their offerings. We visited several excellent nearby restaurants across from Eastern Market.

DC at it's finest

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect spot for the full experience of Washington. We walked everywhere but there are buses. The park across the road adds to the peace of this place. Plenty to see and at easy reach. Shops, transport and lots of sightseeing. The unit is very clean and has everything you need for a great stay. The only negative is that people do live above and you do hear everything.
