Description

The space

Find our other listing of "*Absolutely Historic Haven in NW DC" Studio Apartment for more details on this lovely property. The house is a big stone Tudor house with all the charm of history but with the necessary updates to make us comfortable. Alas, children leaving for college have left us with some extra space. A nice room with a private full bath/shower, a bay window with a view of the private side yard, grill, hot tub and fire pit area. Full closet and storage space (a nice empty trunk), desk and an antique full Jenny Lind bed with temperapedic mattresses (sleeps 2). New additions: mini fridge, microwave, keurig machine with 24 beverage selections! You also get access to the backyard and family kitchen. The backyard includes a fire pit, huge picnic table, reclining lawn chairs and a ready-to-cook gas grill. This house is in the best neighborhood in Washington, DC. Quiet, peaceful, pastoral and yet SOOO close to everything. Metro, Buses, Shopping, Dining!

Guest access

Use of the full kitchen, private backyard, hot tub, fire pit and gas grill. Room upgrades now include your own Keurig coffee maker with lots of beverage choices (tea, coffee, cider, chocolate! YUM), a microwave and small refrigerator. All right in your room!

Interaction with guests

We will be here to greet the guests but pretty much go with the "mi casa es su casa" after that point. We also work just across the street so we are always available.

The neighbourhood

What do we love about our neighborhood? Everything! Transportation, shopping, eating, community, entertainment . . .

Getting around

Easy access to all public transportation. We sold our car after living here for a while because it just sat!

Maureen

Washington, District of Columbia, United States · Joined in March 2013

Family from Washington, DC with a daughter who is currently volunteering at an orphanage and school in Kenya. Another son, a writer and animator, who is studying at UDC and works at Regal Cinema in Chinatown. And yet another son who is attending Duke Ellington School of the Arts here in DC. Maureen (the mom) is a musician, singer/songwriter and pastor along with David, also a pastor. They are actively involved in the city and have several activities that involve feeding the needy families and homeless in the DC area. The house holds many artifacts and items of interest from their visits to Ghana, Kenya, Moscow and other fun places. Maureen collects cheap snowglobes. Not the expensive, nice ones. . .the cheap gas station ones. Her favorite? A snowglobe from Air Force One. House contains two vegetarians and three omnivores (5 omni's including Jane and FuFu, the dogs). Surprisingly, the family finds that DC is a great place to raise aware, inquisitive, artistic, independent kids. So what if none of them know how to drive a car? And, FYI, when we travel, we now use AirBNB. Not a commercial, just the truth.
