Located in the Shaw neighborhood, one of DC's most hip, slick and cool areas, The Firehouse on R housed the first Fully African American Fire company in Washington DC! Built in 1884 and fully renovated in 2017 by a world famous interior designer and TV celebrity, the Firehouse merges exposed architectural beauty with historic photography and modern amenities/design. Total space is roughly 3000 square feet (or 280 square meters).

The space
As seen on Netflix's "Stay Here" (season 1 episode 8).

Exposed brick and wooden beams everywhere! Big bedrooms and amazingly designed bathrooms. Huge gas/remote fireplace. House interior and furniture was designed by a world famous TV celebrity designer in 2017. Tons of historic artifacts, the original fire pole exists in unit, and tons of historic photographs displayed. I don't know a better historic rental available anywhere!
