What makes this house unique
Visitors to our home are often say it's a bit like visiting an art gallery, with lovely prints and objects from around the world. Enjoy the park 4 doors down the street with free tennis courts, playing fields, and great places to stroll or look at the stars. You won't believe you're inside the Beltway and a close walk to 250 restaurants, theaters, and world class shopping. The main sounds we hear outside are children playing and birds singing. The nearest busy road, Wisconsin Avenue, where you can catch the bus, is two blocks away. Come to see the cherry blossoms in front of our house, along our streets, and most spectacularly, in world-famous Kenwood, a 5 minute walk away.
