Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Northwest Washington - Beautiful Chevy Chase DC Home

Available long weekends and holidays

Newly renovated 3 BR 2.5 BA single family home in one of the best neighborhoods in Washington, DC. The house is located in a quiet cul-de-sac off of beautiful Rittenhouse St., NW. Steps to the neighborhood Broad Branch Market and Lafayette Park, and .5 mile to Connecticut Ave. shops, restaurants, Safeway, Starbucks, etc.

The house is 1 mile from the Friendship Heights Metro station - a pretty walk or a brief bus ride on the E2 or E4 steps just from the house. Friendship Heights has the best shopping in the city -Tiffany, Cartier, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo and Gucci. It also has discount shops Nordstrom Rack, DSW, TJMaxx, Filene's Basement and everything in-between: Bloomingdales, Gap, JCrew, Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers.

The house has three bedrooms and one full and one half bath upstairs plus a 3rd full bath in the basement. There is also an air mattress in the basement with the 3rd new bathroom with shower. Downstairs is a beautiful living room, separate dining room, newly renovated large kitchen, and back family room with Smart TV. The slate back patio has a table and chairs, grill and other patio furniture. Large, fully fenced backyard contains a trampoline, zipline, tree swing, hammock, basketball hoop and grill. Back garage on newly paved driveway leading out to network of alleys and quick escape to Lafayette park.

I live here otherwise so the drawers and closets are full. But with that, comes a full pantry with kitchen supplies and staples. It is a great house in a great spot and super fun for kids. FYI, there is a renter in the garage/studio apt. Very safe and quiet renter. Comes and goes through back of property.

About Susan Tanis

I'm a CPA, born and raised in DC. My parents, siblings and boyfriend (and lots of friends) live within 5 miles.

I do live in the home otherwise, so closets and drawers are full. However, kitchen staples, spices, detergent, etc. is all available for use. Overall it is a very neat, uncluttered and well kept home - it is just not sterile like a hotel.

I rent the back garage/studio. The renter is safe, polite, quiet and will come and go through the back of the property. You will likely not see the renter at all.

Susan Tanis purchased this house in 2012

We recently completed a five night stay while in town for our son's wedding at nearby Woodend Sanctuary. The owner has created an place where visitors can truly feel at home amongst the hubbub of D.C. We shared our house with our daughter's family and it could not have been more suitable for our 8 yr. old grandson. He was able to be a kid here -- outdoor space to move & play with the added bonus of the trampoline, basketball hoop, and zip line. When we hosted a brunch for close family members after the wedding everyone was so complimentery of her house and our luck in finding such an ideal location.

Beautiful house, beautiful neighborhood, amazing location, awesome backyard and helpful owner!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family of four plus my father. The backyard provided hours of entertainment for my kids and the house was stocked with everything we could need. Not having closets wasn't a problem--Susan provides places to hang clothes. We had some questions while we there and Susan always responded quickly and was super helpful and a pleasure to work with! The neighborhood is gorgeous and very conveniently located near grocery stores, restaurants and other shopping. Thank you to Susan for making our trip so lovely!

Came to DC for a family wedding. 5 adults and our dog, loved staying here! Susie was easy to deal with and the home was comfortable and very welcoming. Our dog loved the backyard and I loved the swing.

If you are staying in DC, stay here!

  • 5 of 5

I only needed a place to stay with secure parking for a motorcycle. What I found was a beautiful home minutes from Bethesda and a quick drive from downtown DC. The home is fully modern update with all the conveniences you would expect in a delightfully established neighborhood. "Storybook" almost does not do it justice.

The home is surrounded by trees providing comfortable to shade to sit and enjoy the backyard or front area on the cup de sac (which also provided an opportunity to meet the neighbors). This is an older home , so while it lacks the more airy, flowing layout of a recent build, it more than offsets this by being handsomely decorated, imminently comfortable. Not to over-praise, but there was nothing I found lacking in my stay here.

Located in a established area of Bethesda, you could spend an entire vacation happily wandering the local area and enjoying the peace and quiet of the neighborhood itself, but then DC is just a few minutes away. Each drive I took into town went straight through Georgetown and past the National Cathedral, so even the drive is pleasant and rewarding.

I would happily stay here again.

Charming home in a beautiful neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a 5-day trip to DC, and were so glad we found this home! It was clean, well maintained, and had all the amenities we needed. There were six of us total: myself, my husband, our three boys (ages 5, 9 and 10) and my mother-in-law. I knew we needed to find a place with three bedrooms, and the thought of all of us staying in one hotel room made me cringe! Two rooms would have been the same price as this house, so we opted to rent a home instead. As an added bonus, we were able to bring our dog with us, which was so nice. The backyard was my boys' favorite part - it was nice to get home from a BUSY day, and have them go outside to play while the adults could wind down a bit. Susan was fantastic with communication - she was always available via text or phone if we needed her. The neighborhood itself was just beautiful. I wish we wouldn't have been so exhausted from our jam-packed days, so we could have enjoyed a long walk in the evening, but alas, that didn't happen. Distance-wise it isn't too far out of town, but it was every bit of a 45-60 minute drive each way to get to the places we parked (granted, we were driving during rush hours). That was something we would do differently next time - find closer parking garages.. We used the Spot Hero app which was great, but I just picked the wrong garage because I thought we needed to be somewhere specific to get on our tour bus, but it turns out we didn't. Anyway, none of that is Susan's fault, just sharing my 2 cents to hopefully help others out! My husband did take the metro one morning (at 5:30AM!) and had a good experience with that - I dropped him off at the Friendship Heights station, which was a very short (<5 min.) drive from the house. I'm not sure how easy it would be to take the metro with 6 people, but maybe next time we will try it. All in all, it was a wonderful visit, and we loved the house and wouldn't hesitate to rent it again! We would just be sure to pick up enough food at the grocery store to cook in the evenings, that was something else we didn't do very well, and I think we ended up losing weight because we ate cereal for dinner every night! Just too tired and too late to bother going out again, once we got home.. So thank you, Susan, for a great stay! And please thank your daughters for allowing us to use their beds, too! :-) (The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the time and hassle involved with getting downtown, nothing more)
