Contemporary 1BR apt in pvt home. Great neighborhood, bus to Dntwn & the Mall
Description from the manager
This contemporary and visually striking apartment is in a private home owned by an architect. The location is the highly desirable and close-in Palisades Village neighborhood of Washington, DC. The area inspires nostalgic feelings of neighborhood comfort, yet provides city’s urban dynamic. Enjoy the rattle and hum of metropolitan DC while treating yourself to the perfect end-of-day (or night) retreat at Architect’s Abode as you make your entrance through its French doors on the side of the house. This sophisticated one bedroom has a comfortable living room and a table facing a large window for dining and working or contemplate the scenery (National parkland!). Hard to believe that you are at the epicenter of global politics, when you are surrounded by the great outdoors.
Your kitchenette is stocked for simple food preparation and features a hot plate, microwave, coffee maker, panini maker (essential!), blender, refrigerator and toaster oven.
The apartment accommodates a single or couple with a double-sized bed, or a couple with one child on the sofa. (Note that this is not a convertible sofa.)
