About this listing
One of a kind rowhouse and secluded backyard in the center of city, close to both the convention center and downtown as well as great restaurants. Tastefully renovated with unique furnishings and fully equipped kitchen.
This is a spacious, two bedroom, unique townhouse in the historic LeDroit Park neighborhood. It is close to U Street, two blocks from the great new Howard Theatre, and three blocks from the Shaw Metro. It has many original finishes from its 1890 construction and is tastefully renovated and modern.
The townhouse has a washer and dryer en suite and a spacious, fully equipped, professional kitchen. The range and kitchen are ideal if you are staying longer and want to cook. The kitchen met the standards of a former top chef judge and 2014 AirBnBer. It has also hosted artists playing a sold out show at the nearby 9:30 Club.
The WiFi has a strong connection throughout the apartment. There is a 45" flat screen TV with a DirecTV connection and an abundant DVD collection. On the lower level, a recently designed half bath features Portuguese tile. In the master bedroom, the high ceilings accentuate the space of the king size bed, which has a comfortable mattress and plenty of bedding. The upstairs bathroom has a modern doorless shower with three heads. The second bedroom has a seated desk and workspace.
Lounge in the spacious patio, which features a pergola. On nice days, you can enjoy the weather in the hammock below.
Street parking is available and I have a permit that will allow you to park nearby. But why drive? It's a five to ten minute walk to the 9:30 Club and other nightlife in the heart of U Street. Happy to give recommendations on restaurants and nightlife suitable to all budgets. There is a Hertz pay as you go rental adjacent to the property and a Zipcar is a couple blocks away.
Each bedroom comfortably accommodates 2 people. More can fit on the two couches in the living room. Flexible with check in/check out unless someone has booked the night before or after the stay.
Other Things to Note
The price is whatever appears when you send the inquiry. I find it too complicated and time consuming to negotiate. Compared to a hotel the listed rate is an extremely good value.
Standard check in is after 3 pm and check out is by 11 am. If you want to arrive before then or stay later, please let me know and I’ll do my best to accommodate.
Having grown up in the metro area and lived in DC for more than a decade, I'm a big fan of DC in general and LeDroit Park, my neighborhood, in particular. I'm occasionally abroad helping to provide US foreign assistance, though always available and responsive for my guests.
Happy to offer advice on the many things to do around town.
