Overview

About the property

1 BR 1 BA Sleeps

This property is a unique historic carriage house of extraordinary design, formerly the studio of a metal sculptor. Very high ceilings, artistically styled, fabulous space and location. Modern decor, many pieces made by the sculptor and furniture designer. Loft bedroom, all the comforts while staying in an actual piece of art! The kitchen and bathroom have recently been remodeled with quality: artisan crafted cabinets in the kitchen and unique modern bathroom design by an artist.

Downstairs is an open floor space. The dining table is the artist's refinished work table. Much of the furniture is uniquely crafted as well.Upstairs is a brand new queen bed and several comfy seating areas for working or reading.

Everything is fresh as it has been recently renovated; all the bedding, dishes, etc are brand new. The carriage house has been featured in the Washington Post and has twice been chosen to be on the Dupont Circle House Tour and the Logan Circle House Tour.

This carriage house, or studio as we always call it, is a private space for guests with a private entrance. It's like having your own little home with everything you need to be comfortable. There is an area in front of the carriage house where you can hang out in good weather with chairs and a table and umbrella.

The Dupont-Logan neighborhood is central to shopping, dining, clubs and walking distance to just about everything you might want to do in DC. Parks are nearby, Metro, Bike-sharing, steps away.

Please note that you must walk down a short, and safe alley to get to the carriage house. Please do not go to any of the row houses to access the location. They are not associated with the space.

Location

Car: not necessary

The Dupont Logan area is one of DC's hottest neighborhoods noted for proximity to restaurants, entertainment, parks and shopping. Monuments and downtown DC are near as well. Transportation is easy with bikesharing, cabs, Ubers, metro and buses. Walking is great too! All this is going on, yet the property is in a quiet location.

Enchanting space, fabulous neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place. It is like a living work of art, yet it has everything we needed. All the physical particulars--comfort, wifi ease, kitchen, excellent mattress (we're getting older:)--while enveloped in soul enriching art, sculpture, design. Thank you for sharing this restorative and soaring environment.

Great place in a perfect location for a DC visit!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during a convention. It was a great location for access to the convention center, hotels, great restaurants, and all of the sights. Great air conditioning (a must for DC in August), well stocked, and very comfortable for two people. Not your typical VRBO.

Comfortable and Inspiring.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. Susan is a lovely host and was helpful in so many ways incluicng providing a blender for the kitchen, an extra bed and helping me find some temporary last-minute office space. The house is not only beautiful but also comfortable and inviting. Walking through the enormous front door into the skylight lit room felt grand! We would be happy to return.
