Contemporary garden apartment that sleeps a family of four comfortably. All new construction finished in June of 2015 with private bedroom, full amenity kitchen, and luxurious bathroom. Just minutes walk to metro, restaurants, and shops.
The 700 sf 1-bedroom garden unit was gut-renovated in the spring, so it is all brand new! It has front and rear private entries (door is below the front porch in the photos). There is a kitchen with white soft-close cabinets, quartz countertops, eat-in bar, front loading washer and dryer. The kitchen has stainless appliances: a normal-sized refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher. It also has a water boiler, coffee pot, and all the cooking utensils you'll need. If you'd like to cook just ask and I can lend you some spices for your dish (I have most typical). The house has a whole-house water filter, and it was recently tested to be lead free so don't worry about the DC water stories that you may hear! There is also a 3/4 bath with a built-in bench in the large walk-in shower. At the back of the unit there is a bedroom with a small closet and queen sized bed. Insulation was installed between the basement unit and the upper floors to provide acoustical privacy from the primary residence. The living room has a table with four chairs, and a comfortable sleeper sofa with flat screen tv with Apple TV, Blu-Ray player, and sound bar. You can watch all the Netflix and Hulu you'd like. The unit also provides free wi-fi. The sofa folds into a second full size bed that sleeps two. The house has a large (for the city) back yard with patio and sofas, if you're interested in using this space please let me know ahead of time so the dogs do not bother you.
The key is located in a key locker. Instructions to access the unit will be provided in a Visitor's Guide prior to your arrival. All I ask is that guests ensure all windows and doors are closed and locked when leaving the home, be it for a trip out to explore the town and/or at check-out.
Interaction with guests
I live upstairs and have lived in the neighborhood for a number of years. I would love to help you enjoy your stay by providing tips or directions. Your unit is separate, so you'll have as much privacy as you'd like, but please don't hesitate to knock on my door. I love to hear where people are from and tell people all about my adopted home-town and neighborhood!
Other things to note
Although Petworth is a vibrant, growing community that boasts a range of bars, restaurants, and coffee shops all within a 5-10 minute walk from the apartment, I understand people may have questions regarding safety in the neighborhood. When visiting DC always remember that you are in a large urban area, and to be aware when out and about. I wan you to feel as comfortable in my home and enjoy the neighborhood as I do, but know that comfort levels differ, so if you have more questions about safety, feel free to ask.
For groups larger than 4 or if you need additional space, then consider booking at our neighbor's apartment, which can be seen at the link.
The space is the garden unit in my home, so I ask that my guests treat it as they would their own home. I took care to renovate the unit with my guests' comfort in mind. I promise not to have any crazy parties when you are there, and expect you'll do the same. Please also limit the amount of guests in the unit to the the pre-determined number. If you do laundry, please clean the lint trap.
Be sure to turn off all appliances when you are done with them. Also, no smoking or pets allowed. In general, I request that you leave the unit in the condition you found it. As a general house rule, if you are unsure of how something works or how to use it; please just ask.
