About the property

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

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 Washington DC

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!!

Perfect location, met all our needs.

  • 5 of 5

The property couldn't be much better if you're attending a conference. It is two blocks from the conference center, the metro, a grocery store, bars, restaurants, everything you need in walking distance. Over a 4 day period, we never needed a car, bus or cab. The apartment itself was clean and comfortable with all the amenities of home. The owners were very responsive to inquiries. We had 3 adults, so had to use the available inflatable beds and they were of very good quality. I have nothing but positive things to say about the property and would definitely stay again if I find myself back in D.C.

We stayed here recently. The condo was centrally located and seemed to be about 1-2 miles from everything which made excellent walking; many metro stops were also within a short walking distance. On one occasion we found the Mt vernon stop to have infrequent trains so relied on other nearby metro stops as well. Safeway and the Busboys and Poets cafe were a block or so away which made shopping or eating for food super easy. The condo was clean, cozy, comfortable, well appointed and perfectly spacious for 2. The bed was comfortable. There were some small nuances like no soap for the shower or sponges near the sink but these were minor and really no issue. Zaneta was super helpful and very responsive to our emails or texts. Would absolutely not hesitate to stay here again!!

Great place, hard to enter

  • 4 of 5

This place is available at a great place and has a wonderfully central location. For some reason, it is devilishly hard to get into. This may be good if thieves are a concern, but it took me 5 minutes to figure out how to get in. Otherwise, place is well-appointed and well-run. A lot of rules for cleanup, but only took 10 minutes to follow them.

Couple Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I would strongly recommend this property. The accommodations were wonderful and the location was perfect. A quick ($7) Uber ride to the national mall and short walk to the grocery store and restaurants. We loved staying here and would do it again!

Great location in DC

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my one week stay at this property. It is centrally located, convenient to the Metro and the Circulator bus for transportation, though I found I enjoyed my time the most by walking to my destination. Did not explore the restaurants in the area - I bought groceries from the Safeway instead. The unit is very comfortably furnished and well equipped with linens, kitchenware, and even some tourist information. There was minor noise from the neighbors upstairs, but not enough to be truly significant. I would definitely recommend this location to others planning a trip to DC!
