My husband and I lived in the DC area for many years and moved to Oklahoma full time to raise our children. Our company is based in Washington, DC so we purchased this town home to live in when we come back to DC for work or pleasure -- usually about one visit each month. We love the location and the wonderful restaurants and historical sites that are so close. We want everyone who visits our place to enjoy all the wonder of DC as much as we do.
