NEIGHBORHOOD:
Lake D'evereux is a very safe and beautifully maintained neighborhood central to everything.
Alot of nature surrounds my home yet it is only 1/2 mile walk to many shops and cafes, movies, entertainment. There is a large deck off the back that is surrounded by a white victorian railing and peacefully overlooks the lake's Cove:) The lake is only about 25' from the deck and has a pretty lighted fountain in the center. It is very peaceful to hear the sound of flowing water. There are several more lighted fountains in the larger parts of the lake around the corner. This is a unique spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine:)

You are welcome to venture into the larger part of the lake for fun with my 16' canoe :) the canoe is in the back and can be pulled out easily, to the lake where you can drop it right in. There is a boat tie area for easy access while you get in. It's fun! If you feel like paddling around with your coffee :) or your romantic significant other :)

There is Free parking but if you don't have a car there is a bus stop 3 blocks away in the neighborhood. It goes about anywhere via 3 metros all within just 2 - 4 miles from my home.

Metros are : Springfield VA Metro, Huntington Metro and Old Town Alexandria Metro.

I do have a purbred kitten ( pictured ) I keep her in my part of the house, not in the Tenant's Apartment. I am very clean and the house always smells fresh :)

I am a musician and have a Bosendorfer 7' 4" grand piano in the large kitchen you pass through to get to your apartment. The Kitchen closes off from the rest of my home, so you will come and go as you please from this 2nd back entrance. You are also welcome to play the piano if you are a musician or an aspiring musician :)

Please don't hesitate to ask me if you have any questions! You can always text me for a quick response. I don't usually see the tenant because my home is about 2700 square feet and I live in the other levels. But I am friendly and happy to help if you need anything :)
PRICED for ONE PERSON
SECOND PERSON : $15. per night must be booked through airbnb,
with the complete stay even if the 2nd person doesn't stay the for the entire booking.

- One Month Stay minimum is Required for this Location -

* NOTE ~ the Virtual "Street View" is approx. my Actual view is better :) because my house backs to the lake and the front yard is the largest in the neighborhood:) from the front yard, you will see the single family Colonial houses, after your Free parking area :)

Guest Access

Guests can use the private Tennis courts at the end of the street in the neighborhood. Guests can enjoy free parking directly above the large front yard.

Interaction with Guests

I give my guest complete privacy and I enjoy my own privacy. You enter and exit through the back deck door from the main level. Your space is downstairs off the piano room, lake side. The doors to this room close off from my two floors of the house so I rarely see my tenant as you come and go freely and this gives us both our privacy. Enjoy your stay! If you have questions, you're welcome to text me.

Getting Around

There is a city bus stop at the beginning of this neighborhood, at Telegraph Rd and D'evereux Circle Drive. It will take you about any surrounding area via 3 metros: Springfield Metro, Old Town Alexandria Metro, and Huntington Metro. All are within approx. a 3 mile radius. Taxi is also an option to transport to the metro. You can check with your desired metro for rules about Free or paid parking hours to drive you car there .

Other Things to Note
