We love our home. It is clean, very comfortable, located in a friendly, safe, historic walkable neighborhood, one stop light to Washington, DC: a large light filled kitchen/eating area, comfortable beds, plenty of bathrooms, an attic for kids to play, a basement with a large flat screen tv and sound system, a quiet living room and dining room for more intimate discussions, a front porch to eat on a lovely day, and a back yard with a barbecue grill for more private lounging.
The heart of our home is our light filled kitchen, with a seated bar as well as a family table that seats 4-6. Step outside to a small patio that seats four - for outdoor grilling in our large fenced back yard. Host dinner in our formal dining room for your party, cozy up on one of our four leather sofas in the living room with a book, play the piano in our back family room. A half bath finishes the main floor along with our favorite space, the newly renovated front porch, where dining for four is easy while you watch the neighbors walk their dogs.
For entertainment, a full basement sports a large screen tv as well as another half bath. Storage rooms, an exercise space, and a washer and dryer fill the rest of the basement. For the exercise buffs there are yoga mats, an exercise ball, a stationary bicycle, and free weights. This area also sports a large CD collection of jazz, rock, and music from the oldies.
For sleeping, there is a full master bedroom on the second floor, with its own full bath, showered with light from all directions. The second, third and fourth bedrooms on that floor share a common bathroom, each hosting single beds. The upstairs attic is carpeted with a very comfortable double futon for those who want extra sleep and privacy! Finally, there are two single beds in the basement - one a fold out couch. And a second bed in its own room.
We live in our home. Please respect our privacy by not going into our closets and drawers. We ask that you use your suitcases and limited closet space for hanging clothes that we will discuss. Thank you for respecting our privacy.

Другие важные подробности
We are a very walkable neighborhood --three block walk to Safeway, Baskin Robbins, Dunkin Donuts, a hardware store, yoga studio, and a number of wonderful restaurants!
We want you to have a wonderful relaxing time in our home. While our home is child friendly, it is not childproof, so we ask that children be old enough to not fall down stairs, break things, etc. Absolutely no smoking in the house and please, no pets. Please respect our neighbors with your parking and noise and most importantly, have an awesome time!
My husband David and I are long-time Washington DC policy folks who have focused on international issues and are now excited to start sharing our home with others. We live with our two teens Jackie and Josh - and our bichon-poodle Pippi, who is the love of our family. We are passionate about making the world a better place and working to bring people together, which we often do in our home. We love our neighborhood for its friendliness, walkability to stores and the sights of DC, the close bike trail, and access to great parks and nature.
