About this listing
Enjoy city living in our sunny, bright 1 BR Penthouse condo. I've outfitted some of the city's best spas so our guests should expect comfort, thoughtful amenities and great service. Our condo easily sleeps 4 with room for 6. Modern decor compliments century-old brick walls and reclaimed wood accents. The luxurious bathroom includes a custom seated shower, double vanity, soft towels, hair dryer, spa-quality shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The Metro Subway station is 2 1/2 blocks away.
Luxurious, private, urban, ultra comfortable and absolutely beautiful. Located on lively Mt. Pleasant Street! This is an urban retreat ideal for those who want to experience the bustle of the city in a diverse, historic and artsy neighborhood. Across the street is Suns independent movie theater & the Raven dive bar. On the next block there's Each Peach Market for great food-to-go and sandwiches, Beau Thai for local hip thai food and even a papusa restaurant in the lower level of our building.
Just steps away from us are even more restaurants, grocery stores, and even your big chain store Target! The lively neighborhoods of Columbia Heights, Adams Morgan, and Dupont are within walking distance and the White House is about three miles down 16th Street. Walk through Rock Creek Park for a tour of the historic Pierce Mill or marvel at the opulent 25 acre Hillwood Estate - home to the most comprehensive collection of Russian imperial art outside of Russia.
Traveling with kids? A playground for little ones is just around the corner or walk down the hill to the National Zoo where admission is free. Sit for story time at the newly renovated Mt Pleasant library and check out original artwork by the artist Aurelius Battaglia who later worked on Disney's Dumbo.
Public transport is excellent in our neighborhood...walk to the metro (2 1/2 blocks away), hop on a bus, rent a bike through Capital Bike Share or drive around with Zip Car - all just minutes from our door.
Columbia Heights metro station (green line) is only 0.3 miles away - about a 5 minute walk from the condo. Cleveland Park (red line) is a 5 min ride on the H4 bus which is minutes from our door. For those wanting to hit the White House or National Mall, walk 2 minutes and catch the S4 bus which goes down 16th Street. The White House is about a 10 minute bus ride and the Mall is another ten. We highly recommend Uber and Lyfts because they are inexpensive and super quick options.
For those driving into the city, you will need to park your car in a garage or lot. The closest garage is located at the DC USA complex (@ Target, Bed n Bath). It is a quick walk from the condo.
The Penthouse is on the 3rd floor of a historic rowhome on bustling Mt Pleasant Street. There are stairs to walk up (no elevator).
