Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Northwest Washington - 2123 R F1

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

One of our favorite properties!

Located on coveted, Embassy Row in the heart of Kalorama, one block West of Connecticut Avenue NW and two blocks East of Massachusettes Avenue,surrounded by the Embassies and Mansions of Washington, D.C.

Centrally located three blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro and a short walk to the Washington Hilton, Georgetown, restaurants and shops.

This duplex has two entrances. A lower level entrance at the bedroom level will make it easier to bring your suitcases or packages after a busy day of shopping. There is also a more formal main level entrance thru a common vestibule.

The living area is on the main floor of the unit. A generous South facing living room, with bay window, high ceiling, pocket doors and period finishes. Comfortable, fashionably chic with a twist!

Adjacent to the living room is the family room, kitchen and powder room. The kitchen was designed by a noted kitchen designer and opens to a comfortable Great room with a flat screen television, additional seating and a deck that leads to a secret garden

The bedrooms are located on the lower floor and are accessed via a staircase off the great room hallway. The front bedroom has original marble floors, a queen bed and shares a hall bath. The rear bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, king bed, flat screen television

and direct access to the garden in the rear.

This is a perfect package of a Superior location, access to Metro, Shops, Restaurants and a interesting space. Perfect for the person seeking an International Flair yet decidedly American experience!

You will love the Sunday farmer's market located off Dupont Circle or slip out for a glass of wine or Espresso. It does not get any better than this!

About Cliff Palermo

Hi I'm Cliff Palermo. My family and I love providing great places for travelers to call home, while away from home since 2011.

Cliff Palermo purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Cliff Palermo chose Washington DC

Located in DuPont circle, mixed in with the embassy. Great metro access, and of course the fabulous Restaurant Nora is a stone throw away.

What makes this apartment unique

Come in, drop your luggage and enjoy the city in style!

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This townhome is located in a great neighborhood near the embassies a few blocks from the easy accessible Metro. The home was perfect for our family with 3 children. I needed something for the home and Cliff had it delivered right away. There were plenty of blankets, pillows and towels. The kitchen is beautiful and functional for family dinner. Starbucks and an amazing bagel store is just blocks away, as are restaurants galore. Thank you

Slice of heaven in DuPont Circle

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home away from home for 2 couples playing tourist. Having 2 bedrooms and 2 baths ensured privacy. We loved the fully stocked kitchen for breakfasts. If we hadn't made dinner reservations, we would have loved grilling on the darling back deck. Instead, we lounged in the lovely salon and living room.

The beds were comfy, bathrooms commodious, towels fluffy and numerous.

This is a wonderful townhouse just a couple of blocks from a Metro station in a neighborhood of embassies, restaurants and small museums. Yet it felt residential and private.

We'd come back in a heartbeat. The owners were great to work with, recommending restaurants and helping with a late departure.

We loved the property. The house was in close walking distance to the Metro. There is a Starbucks on the corner and tons of restaurants to choose from in the neighborhood. Having two bedrooms and two bathrooms worked well as we were traveling with a teenager. The home owners checked with us via email on our arrival and immediately responded to an email that I sent them. The house is nicely decorated and the furniture is comfy.

Quality Home near Dupont Circle

  • 5 of 5

The location is amazing and convenient to restaurants, metro, and other D.C. sights. The photos online mirror the reality of the townhome. The furnishings were in good condition and the kitchen was well stocked for cooking and dining. The bedrooms are downstairs but there are windows and light in those rooms that make them very comfortable. There is a small outdoor space off the kitchen too. We had no problem finding a spot with our parking pass. This was a lucky find in the middle of D.C.
