About Linda

Stubbornly fixing up parts of the nation's capitol since 1998.

Linda purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Linda chose Washington DC

This is a tremendous property in one of the most interesting neighborhoods in Washington - go to the history page. http://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/wash/dc45.htm - there is a great overview of the neighborhood - Originally one of the capitol's earliest country retreats (Lincoln's cabin was a mile down Columbia road) it became the Park Avenue of the city in the 20's when the cable cars began transporting the well to do out to their homes in Chevy Chase. Biltmore street was known as General's alley until the second world war when many of the general's and Admiral's assigned to the Pentagon lived on this leafy street.

The property is within walking distance or a short bus ride to just about anything you would want to see or do in the nation's Capitol.

What makes this apartment unique

This property is a peaceful oasis DC's best neighborhood - President Obama settled here, Ivanka Trump is 6 blocks away, and you may spot them at one of the restaurants or shops they frequent around the corner. You can walk to anything you need with 80 restaurants/coffee shops/bars feet away, 3 supermarkets 1 organic market - half a block 2 - 2 blocks 3 - 5 blocks, a drug store 1 block, kinko's/fedex around corner, 4 dry cleaners around corner, metro - 3 blocks away and bus stops across the street on the bus route to the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) course location

lovely

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying here. The location for us was perfect. We had plenty of space, it was clean, and everything was supplied for us. Everything was in good condition. We had one issue (on my part) and they were able to help me immediately. I would recommend this place to stay to everyone and anyone .

Great Stay in DC

  • 5 of 5

This was a good choice for our trip to Washington DC. We had three people staying and could have had fit about 5 to 6 total. Our hosts (John & Linda) were very helpful and everything went as planned. The metro is about a 12 minute walk from the residence and we used it every day we stayed.

If you have a car leave it at home. Parking is a nightmare. However there is a secure lot at 2302 Calvert St NW, Washington, DC 20008 that charges $20 a day that we used. I would highly recommend this option.

A perfect time in DC

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Just blocks from the Dupont Circle and Woodley Zoo stations. We were comfortable and happy campers for the Inauguration ceremonies.

I would definitely stay here again on our next trip here.

Great Garden

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the penthouse apt on the top floor for 7 nights. The apt was clean and the owners were very accommodating. They took the time to meet us and gave us a tour of the apt and showed us how everything worked. They told us the location of nearby restaurant options and transportation services. The apt was located in a nice neighborhood. The metro was a bit of a walk but we used Uber several times and found it very convenient.

A little neighborhood history: This area historically was part of the 19th century estate 'Kalorama' and enjoyed a reputation for its natural ambience. It was not until the turn of the century that urban development extended the city of Washington into and beyond the borders of this area. The land that now comprises Kalorama Triangle was subdivided in the early 1880s. It was the redelineation of Connecticut Avenue (1897-1907) in conjunction with construction of bridges and the introduction of two major streetcar lines that formed Kalorama Triangle and established its urban character.

Kalorama Triangle, due to the contracted period of time during which it was developed, as well the awareness of architectural styles, is a particularly important illustration of the aesthetics of middle-class speculative housing during the early years of the 20th century. The neighborhood is composed both of examples of high style architecture and modest builder-designed dwellings, but it is primarily a showcase for the stylistic variations of popular trends. Three important styles are abundant in Kalorama Triangle: English Arts and Crafts, Georgian Revival and Mediterranean (including both Italian and Spanish derivatives).

The first house constructed on the newly subdivided land was the Fuller House NR in 1893 at 2317 Ashmead Place. This house, designed by its owner, Thomas Fuller, is an early and important representation of the influence of the English Arts and Crafts Movement on residential architecture in the United States.

In 1898, Walter Peter introduced the Georgian Revival style into the district with his design for the residence at 1842 Mintwood Place. This style met with great popularity as a mode for rowhouse design. An example of the Colonial Revival style is 1901 Biltmore Street. It was built in 1901 by Alex Miller to the design of Speiden and Speiden. Several dwellings, 1848 and 1923 Biltmore Street, for example, illustrate a mixture of both Mediterranean and Georgian Revival styles. A.R.Taylor built 1923 Biltmore Street in 1907 and Arthur B. Heaton designed 1848 Biltmore Street in 1909.

1850 and 1852 Biltmore Street provide the most handsome examples of the Mediterranean influence in the Kalorama Triangle. They were designed and built by W. Granville Guss for himself in 1911. The popularity of the Spanish Revival style rose in the 1920s. The firm of Sonneman and Justement designed a row of houses on Ashmead Place that were built in 1921.
