About the property

Originally built in the 19th century, our beautiful three-story Georgetown row house is fully updated while still maintaining its historic federal charm.

The street level entrance brings you to a small foyer. To the left of the foyer is a den with a full-sized sleeper sofa, full bath and a small walk-in closet. The brand new washer and dryer are also on this floor.

A flight of stairs leads you to the main floor which features an open floor plan and original heart-of-pine floors throughout.

The well appointed chef's kitchen includes a cozy breakfast nook. From the kitchen, French doors open to a private garden patio perfect for morning coffee or evening cocktails.

The rest of the main level is divided between an elegant formal dining room and a cozy living room with a large feather-down sectional, entertainment system and double-sided gas fireplace. There is also a powder room located on this floor.

The top floor features two master suites each with a private full bath.

The larger master suite at the rear of the house features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the rear patio and garden. The king size Tempurpedic bed, affords a distant view of the Washington monument. The adjoining master bath includes a double-sink vanity, a marble walk-in shower, and a clawfoot tub.

The second master suite at the front of the house features a plush queen size bed, views of the street below, and an attached bathroom with a large marble shower.

The Neighborhood

A stroll through the historic neighborhood with its beautiful tree lined streets, stately row houses, and rich history transports you to another time.

Dine at Billy Martin's Tavern, where JFK proposed to Jackie. Take a walking tour of the houses that the Kennedy's lived in during their time in Washington, many of which are on our street. Enjoying shopping on famous M Street or take a walk along the 180-year-old Chesapeake & Ohio Canal. Head down to Washington Harbour, with close-up views of the Potomac river, Roosevelt Island and the Kennedy Center. Or visit Dumbarton Oaks, the former home of Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss. The exceptional garden features an antique Provençal fountain, a mini Roman amphitheater, and a 16th-century-style arbor.

When you're ready to see the rest of what D.C. has to offer, you'll find the White House, Capital, monuments and Smithsonian museums are all within three miles of our home.

Our house is very close to Georgetown University, George Washington University, the National Cathedral, and the Kennedy Center.

Getting Around

Conveniently located in the heart of Georgetown near the intersection of N St and Wisconsin Avenue, our house is literally steps from all the shopping, dinning and entertainment Georgetown has to offer.

If you are here to visit your son or daughter, it is only a six block walk to Georgetown University and ten blocks to George Washington University.

There are multiple bus routes that stop within a block or two our home, including the Circulator, a bus designed with tourists in mind that has routes throughout the city.

Dupont Circle Metro and Foggy Bottom Metro are both one mile from our house and reachable by bus transfer.

Of course taxis are ubiquitous, and Uber Car Service is also readily available. Both taxis and Uber accept major credit cards.

Other Things to Note

Like all big cities Washington can be noisy. Homes in Georgetown are right on the street, and the older homes you'll find here are generally not the most soundproof. If you are sensitive to noise you may want to consider alternative accommodations.

Our family of 6 stayed in this beautiful home for a week of summer vacation, and it couldn't have been more perfect! The location was ideal for sightseeing in DC, but it also provided a great escape from the tourist bustle. We really enjoyed walking around the neighborhood, trying different restaurants and checking out all the cute shops. Our hosts, Paul and Emily, were extremely gracious, accommodating and helpful with all the details of our stay, from transportation suggestions to dining options. They were so easy to work with! Their home was fully stocked with toiletries and other necessities, so even if we found that we had forgotten to bring something...no worries, because chances were that we'd find that it was provided for us. It's a beautiful home with plenty of room to spread out, as well as great living areas for the group to be together, including outdoor seating if the weather cooperates. We loved our stay, and we would definitely recommend it to anyone making a trip to the DC area.

A flawless experience, beautiful home and gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for almost three weeks in this beautifully appointed, comfortable, well equipped home and already have made plans to return. That's how much we love it! The quality of the home's stylish furnishings and its perfect location made our time in DC so much more enjoyable. The elegant, historic house has a very functional floor plan and a great flow with three full bedrooms and three full bathrooms. What is truly special about this property is its owners, Paul and Emily. They were attentive, accommodating, helpful and generous throughout the process. No question was too small and their care as hosts sets them apart. Special thanks for allowing us to extend our stay when our plans changed unexpectedly. We already are looking forward to our next stay at this exceptional Georgetown property.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in May and loved everything about this gorgeous property. The house is beautiful, clean and very thoughtfully equipped. The location is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the bustle of DC but yet be on a quiet street, and the owner Paul was so attentive in helping us with any questions we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and when we return to DC would love to stay again.

Gorgeous row house in Georgetown

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as it appears in the photos - beautiful. It's a spacious, 3 bedroom, 3 bath home in a fantastic location in Georgetown. Paul was out of town the week we were there (it was Thanksgiving week) but he was very attentive and communicative, ensuring we had everything we needed. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you might need, and there was nice shampoo, conditioner, fresh soap and other toiletries which just made us feel more welcome. I highly recommend this property for any family or group of friends who want to enjoy DC in comfort.

We spent a wonderful week in this charming home in Georgetown. Tastefully furnished, fully stocked and with a great location, this row house allowed us easy access to all the sights and provided a comfortable environment to relax with the family. We're already planning another trip for this winter!

Our stay (my husband, 16 yr. son, and myself) at this lovely Georgetown townhouse was terrific. The house was fantastic in location (close to shopping and entertainment), amenities, furnishing, gadgets. It was like staying at a 5 star hotel with the extra bonus of your own kitchen, laundry, space. Really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon!
