About this listing
Spacious 1BR, tastefully furnished with modern charm and all amenities, in family townhouse, located in historic street in Mt. Pleasant. Large living room, generously cut & recently renovated kitchen and BR w/walk-in closet. 2-8 minutes to restaurants & coffee shops, stores, bus&metro, bike share, large park for recreation.
The apartment is meant to be rented out - so you will find a clean and comfortable space awaiting you, with no owner-specific clutter, ideal for the professional visitor to DC and/or the couple or small family looking to enjoy the capital.
The apartment features a beautiful set of exposed brick walls, contrasting nicely the modern furniture, the large flat-screen, and the just recently re-done kitchen. The bedroom includes a super-comfortable luxurious kingsized bed, plenty of storage space, as well as a modern desk and great spaces to work, write, think, create. Despite being a basement apartment, the many windows provide lots of light. The generously cut and furnished open-space living room includes a sleeper sofa (for 2) and other amenities. The kitchen is large, light and spacious and includes a 6-8 person dining table, as well as all modern tools (microwave, oven, cooktop, washer/dryer, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, disposal, cookware, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, flatware, glasses, and kitchen utensils) and large dining area.
Very comfortable, the apartment is part of a 1910 Victorian townhouse from 1910. W/DR, TV, WIFI, and books-to-read are included.
Our guests have access to the whole apartment. It's yours - while you are here!
Interaction with Guests
We live in the same building, and are available, if there is interest, for questions and guidance about Washington and its museums, galleries, and entertainement options. The apartment is fully separated and accessible through a private entrance - so if you wish no interaction, that's just as fine with us.
Attractive urban setting in the heart of the mixed and charming Victorian-stye Mount Pleasant neighborhood, with a farmer's market on Saturdays, less than 5 minutes walking-distance to local stores and many restaurants and cafes, and a few minutes further to major retail outlets (Target, Marshall, Staples, Best Buy, Washington Sport Club, Starbucks, etc). Nearest Metro Station: Columbia Heights (5 blocks), green and yellow lines. Bus station and bike rental station just a few minutes walk from the house.

Other Things to Note
From our quiet neighborhood street, it's only a few steps to Rock Creek Park, with great options for running, cycling, and pretty much any other outdoor sport.
The local library is only a few minutes away, as is the National Zoo.
Adams Morgan, the local multi-cultural hotbed for cool restaurants, cocktails and dancing, is within walking distance, just as great for evening fun as is the equally close U-Street/14th Street Corridor.
No smoking on the premises.
In respecting fellow travelers' allergies, we unfortunately do not allow pets in the apartment.
