My basement is a bright, airy fully furnished private space; ideal for a working professional looking for short term lodging. It includes a bedroom, bathroom and living room with a desk/table. The kitchen is shared with my son and his girlfriend and is fully stocked with all possible cooking items. The unit includes high-speed internet with 42 inch HD TV. Parking is free and readily available on my street.

The space
You can park and leave your car behind because public transportation is just steps away. City busses stop at both ends of my street and the metro is just an 8 minute walk away. If you like to bike there is the DC Bike Share only two blocks away. I'm 4 miles north of the National Mall and you can get pretty much anywhere in DC in less than 30 minutes. I walk to my grocery stores; Yes Organic Market and Safeway. There are also some excellent restaurants within a half mile radius of my house. Check out Timber Pizza or the Highlands Café!

Where you’ll be

Washington, District of Columbia, United States

My neighborhood is the quintessential American melting pot. We have every race and ethnic group in the US right here in Petworth. We're sometimes, euphemistically described as a "transitioning" neighborhood. My street is comprised of Wardmen style row houses, originally built around 1910. My house was gutted and renovated in 2010 and has all modern conveniences.
