About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom House In Charming And Leafy Palisades Above The Potomac

Our house is located in the Upper Georgetown/Palisades Neighborhood. New neighborhood community pool in summer. Country in the city: Relax in a charming cottage on one of Washington’s close-in and most sought-after upscale residential streets, overlooking the Potomac River five minutes drive from downtown Georgetown (ten minutes by bus and bicycle). This house was built in the 1920s as a vacation house by the Potomac for a Capitol Hill family, and is on a cult-de-sac facing national parkland, one of a handful of houses in Washington with a river view. It has four bedrooms and sleeps 8. Return from a day of city touring to relax on our porch overlooking the Potomac river palisades while ceiling fans keep you cool.

The house is located just upriver from Georgetown in the heart of leafy, upscale Palisades village, just 2 blocks from excellent restaurants, grocery stores, cafes, shops and other conveniences. Easy access to all points of interest in Washington via the D5 Express and D6 MetroBuses which stop just a block away. The house has plenty of parking and the neighborhood is extremely safe. Paths lead down to the river, C&O Canal and jogging and bike paths. Boats and bicycles can be rented at Fletcher’s boathouse just down the hill.

Available for 4 nights to a month. We welcome families, couples and other travelers whether on business, relocating or vacationing.

The neighborhood has a dozen eateries. a number of which are in 'best of DC' lists, as well as all other shopping.
