This gorgeous historic townhome is a perfect location for your dream DC getaway. Within walking distance to the National Zoo and 2 metro lines, you can access all the sites our city has to offer and then retreat to this beautifully curated home.

The space
This three story 1920s townhome boasts original woodwork and molding but has all the modern amenities you will need.

The main floor, to the right of the foyer, has a formal dining room that can seat 10. Passing through the dining room you will enter the parlor which has a baby grand piano which is perfect for music lovers and has a gorgeous winding, open staircase to the 2nd floor. The parlor is a perfect space for reading or relaxing. There is half bath just off the parlor. Beyond the parlor is the formal living room with plenty of seating for 10. Lastly, at the back of the house is an eat-in kitchen curated with modern appliances and cable TV. But don't overlook the back staircase which gives you secret access to the 2nd floor.

Outside the kitchen is a beautiful outdoor courtyard/patio where you can relax with coffee, cocktails or dine al fresco. (Please note this is a shared space with the basement apartment Airbnb guests. The basement Airbnb has its own entrance in the back of the house and is fully separate from the main house.)

Moving to the 2nd floor, there is a large family/play/game room with an HDTV flat screen with surround sound, DVD and Apple TV. The game room is large enough for a queen air mattress which is the perfect space for the kids. (As an FYI, there is no door on that room). A full bath (with clawfoot tub/shower), 2 bedrooms (1 full, 1 queen), and laundry room are on this floor. The queen room has a TV and a private balcony overlooking the back patio.

On the 3rd floor is the master bedroom with a king bed and separate full bathroom (with clawfoot tub/shower). The king room boast HDTV with cable. One twin bedroom is also on this level.

High speed WIFI available throughout the house which is perfect for multiple devices for work-from-home or distance learning.

Parking is street parking only but normally spaces are available within 1 block.

Guest access
All three floors of the main house.
