This villa has a front entrance with on street parking and a rear entrance with parking spaces for two.

Comfortable and elegant, this tastefully decorated living area has a designer sofa, 2 oversized chairs, and 2 occasional chairs. Floor lamps as well as recessed lighting create multiple opportunities to curl up with a good book on a lazy Saturday or rainy Sunday.
Across from the living area with views onto the terrace is the office area with Mahogany writing desk, retrieved from a Mandarin Hotel renovation a few years ago. This Art Deco Contemporary piece has a chinese red insert drawer that sits below a removable glass top. With stainless steel anklets, the legs of the desk look very elegant and sanguine. Just the perfect setting to open up that MacBook and do some work.
Adjacent to the living room is the dining area, with seating for 6. This oversized glass top table uses as a base 2 pieces of Black African Granite, mined in the caves of South Africa near Johannesburg.
On the opposite side of the dining room wall are the kitchen and powder room. The large eat-in kitchen, with its African slate tile floor, was renovated in 2008 and has all stainless steel appliances.

The kitchen has a circular wood block table with chairs that looks out onto the quiet street though 2 ivy-surround windows. There is a flat screen television in the kitchen.
The powder room is painted in Ralph Lauren's Hunting Coat Red. There are both a Kohler Pedestal Sink and Kohler Faucets.
The 2 bedrooms are located on the upper floor and are accessed via the staircase off the entry room hallway. The front bedroom has a 2 poster Queen Bed. There is a Duncan Phyfe upholstered settee and antique small coffee table, perfect for a nice evening read or morning coffee before heading downstairs with the group.

This is a perfect package of a good location, tastefully appointed, quiet and relaxed home with access to Baseball, Metro, Shops, Restaurants and the Waterfront. 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!

Awesome property in DC!!!
We had a spectacular time at Bernard's property. It absolutely lovely, and centrally located to metro transportation. It was beautifully decorated, and extremely clean. He provided us with directions and assistance both before and after we arrived, and made our trip one of the best yet. We will absolutely be back. Thanks Bernard! ”
Close to Everything
The townhouse is very close to the metro so it was so easy getting to the main locations like the mall area and museums. Bernard, the owner was so easy to work with and answered any question that we had. The townhouse was very welcoming and had 2 bedrooms with 2 1/2 baths. Hope to return again. Thanks,”
