About the property

1 BD 1 BA 800 sq ft condo 2 blocks from Convention Center

Accepting minimum 6 month lease only. This serene, carefully balanced one bedroom residence is the cutest little cove!! It is just the perfect fit for a stately city like Washington, DC. This wonderful apartment home is located on the basement level of a Small Boutique Building nestled in one of the most convenient and lovely blocks in the District. It is our newest addition to our portfolio, and is one of our favorite gems!

Located 2.5 blocks from the Convention Center and the Mt. Vernon Square Metro (Green/Yellow Line), this home is truly in the center of everything. This almost 1000 sq ft residence is perfect for the budget shopper who will not compromise on location or style. Recently renovated from top to bottom, this residence has a walk-ability index of 98%. There is truly no need for a car. You are one block to the 24 hour Safeway supermarket, Busboys and Poets restaurant, Starbucks, Chipotle, Hardware store, Capital One Bank ATM, and a host of restaurants, gyms, beverage stores, and of course—the Convention Center! You can hop on the DC Circulator Bus from the convention center to all major points of interest in DC. You can tour the city by taking the metro which is within 2.5 blocks of the residence. You can rent a bike @ Capital Bike Share, or if you choose to do it on foot, walk to Union Station or the US Capitol in approximately twenty minutes. You can walk to the trendy Penn Quarter or Chinatown/Gallery Place sections of the city in fifteen minutes. This is truly a pedestrian residence off the main street—a truly unique city experience.

The Residence

Upon entering the residence, you are greeted by an entry table with mirror, perfect for putting down packages or keys from a long day. The sofa and club chair are surrounded with lighting options, and the soft-brown leather ottoman is perfect for putting your feet up after strolling through the Nation’s Capital. The living room gets morning light which streams in from the 2 windows perched atop the exterior wall of the residence. The 26 inch flat screen television is also in this area. The owner has attempted to create an urban living space that is serene enough to have a cocktail or curl up and watch your favorite episode of Scandal.

As you continue into the residence, the open, U-shaped kitchen is to your right. The kitchen is complete with refrigerator, Maytag dishwasher, double oven, ceramic sink with garbage disposal and pull out faucet with sprayer.

To the left of the kitchen is the dining area, showcase by lovely bookshelves, painted in a Ralph Lauren Hunting Coat Red, which have been designed with the warmth of the residence in mind.

As you continue into the residence, near the end of the expansive hallway, the reading nook is perfect for curling up with that perfect book. Designed with reading in mind, it has great lighting, nice rugs, and will have you either reading or sleeping like a baby.

The laundry room is to the right of the reading nook, and hosts a stackable washer and dryer. Off the laundry room, the bathroom’s spa-like colors were designed with the thought of relaxing in the large tub and shower.

The bedroom was designed with warmth in mind. The walls are painted in a restful blue that allows you to feel the warmth of the bedroom. There is a 24-inch television in this part of the residence in case you would like to rest in bed while watching your favorite shows.

This residence combines a perfect package of an excellent location with a tastefully appointed, quiet and relaxed home. The host of restaurants, gyms, beverage stores, and of course—the convention center—allow you to enjoy the convenience of the city! Again, you can hop on the DC Circulator Bus from the convention center to all major points of interest in DC. This is truly a pedestrian residence off the main corridor.

This home is perfect for the family visiting on vacation, the business executive bringing his or her family, Baseball enthusiasts, or anyone seeking an International Flair on a yet decidedly American experience!

About zdhargrove@me.com

I am a consultant to a science foundation.

zdhargrove@me.com purchased this condo in 2001

Why zdhargrove@me.com chose Mount Vernon Square

I purchased this property in 2001 when the neighborhood was on the crust of development. My how it has blossomed! The neighborhood is alive with several amenities within walking distance. A few steps away are the Starbucks and the Safeway; and restaurants and bars are alive with people illuminating a wonderful atmosphere. It has been a wonderful experience to watch the neighborhood flourish into such a vibrant and lively community!!

What makes this condo unique

I love waking up and hearing the city come alive. I always look forward to my morning stroll to Starbucks and interacting with the people who are out an about. Because we are in the heart of NW DC, I see and hear the Presidential motorcade just enough to remind me why I love this city! The close proximity to EVERYTHING makes this truly a FABULOUS neighborhood!!

I stayed in this amazing apartment for two weeks while I studied sign language at Gallaudet University! Wow! I truly cannot say enough about my experience. The apartment is quite lovely and very efficient. The rooms are large, and they are beautifully decorated. The living room has comfortable furniture and is very spacious. The kitchen is updated with nice appliances and is well stocked with all needed supplies. There is a kitchen table with a built in bookcase behind it. The owner has generously stocked the shelves with helpful books and guides about getting around in the city! My favorite part of apartment was the "reading nook" with an awesome chair and ottoman. Trust me, I spent many hours there studying! The bathroom is nicely updated with a great tub and shower. There were plenty of clean towels and supplies. The washer and dryer was very helpful to me since I was there for an extended period! I slept well in the queen size bed, and I was easily able to organize all of my clothes in the chests and closets. There is a covered patio with a table and two chairs that can be reached through the back door of the bedroom. All of the doors and windows have secure locks and bars over them. I stayed alone, and I felt truly safe every single night. In addition, there is a police precinct within sight from 5th Street. Going to the grocery store was a breeze, as it was only a block away. I felt like a city girl buying 1-2 bags of groceries at a time and taking them back to the apartment. Going to the metro was only 2.5 blocks, and it required only one turn on M street. I could easily get anywhere I needed to be in the city very quickly and efficiently. I did take an uber to and from Reagan National Airport, and it only took around 15 minutes to get there. There are several restaurants near the apartment, and Bus Boys and Poets took me four minutes to get to!

Zaneta, the hostess, was very kind and always answered my questions immediately.

I would absolutely stay here again, and I give it my highest recommendation! What a wonderful experience!

Comfortable, convenient and centrally located apt

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 2 week stay at this apartment. The bed was super comfortable as was the inflatable mattress. The apartment was nicely decorated amd had tvs in both the living room and bedroom. The shower had great pressure and the central a/c was excellent (a huge plus, especially for DC in summer.) The kitchen was well stocked for all kinds of cooking. The washer and dryer were a huge plus as well. It was very convenient to be within 1/2 block of Safeway supermarket and a hardware store. There are many restaurants within a few blocks, especially some great breakfast places with excellent coffee. The closest metro stop was about a 5 minute walk (green and yellow lines) although we usually used Uber and Lyft to get around. We were within about a 10 minute ride from the Smithsonian and many DC sights as well as a Whole Foods. Altogether great apartment in a great location.

Awesome 1 bedroom hideaway in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week from May 1st to May 7th, 2017. This was our first trip to D.C. and had no idea what to expect. Most of what we heard was about the high crime in D.C. We took the Metro (yellow line) from Reagan to Mt. Vernon and cost $4.10 each. Short 5 minute walk from the station to the apartment. Arrived to find everything just as the photos were on the page. We immediately fell in love with the coziness and comfort of the place. We arrived in the afternoon, so made no "tourist" trips that day. We walked to the Safeway Grocery store about a block away and was able to get some stuff for the fridge and to snack on and return to plan our days ahead. The neighborhood was really nice and at no time did we fell worried about any criminal activity. That was a big relief! The unit is a basement unit and has upstairs neighbors. You can hear them moving around, but it was not unbearable. The unit is easy walking distance to most of the sights to see. We chose to use Uber many times and they were all able to locate us easily. Most rides were between $4 - $9 just depending on where you wanted to go. Some days we walked out and Ubered back and others just the opposite. All of the furniture was in great shape and comfortable. The queen bed was VERY comfortable and we slept very well. Lots of closet space for handing clothes. Washer/Dryer combo worked well. Wi-Fi worked well also. Zaneta, the owner was SUPER to work with. I will be sending as many of my friends to this place as possible and highly recommend it. The unit is great for a couple, but has a fold-away bed for use along with sheets, blankets and pillows for it if more than two decide to stay. We actually looked forward to "coming home" every day to relax from all of our sightseeing activities. We did not try any of the nearby restaurants or bars so I cannot comment on them.

We had a wonderful time. The unit was clean, had all the amenities we needed and was centrally located. We would highly recommend. We stayed with our daughter and used the twin blow up. Worked great, she was very comfortable! Close to grocery store.
