About The Owner

Here I am with the fabulous Ms. Lulu, the light of my life, my granddaughter. I am very lucky - I have two great kids, two wonderful homes, a challenging career which I am winding down, many fun friends, and I had a wonderful marriage until I was widowed. So, maybe not so lucky there, but I was lucky to have him!

The Owner purchased this condo in 1990

Why The Owner chose Adams Morgan

Adams Morgan is a young, vibrant area of Washington ... just the place for someone who wants to share the best things of life with the world! You can spend a day just exploring all the many quixotic parts of this neighborhood and still not have seen it all. Fine restaurants, ethnic restaurants, they are both here, and if night life is your thing, well, you'll be in heaven.

What makes this condo unique

This was the apartment I bought five years after I lost my husband - imagine, 58 years old and this was the first apartment I ever lived in by myself! And it's wonderful ... filled with all the things I love, vibrant colors, antiques, books, prints, and to top it all off, a really incredible deck. The deck is a constant source of peace and contentment. Fix your coffee in the morning, grab my Washington Post from the hallway and take it all up to swing gently while the soft sound of the fountain in the fish pond lull you into a state of relaxation, while you watch the rising sun come over the canopy and start to highlight first this rose and then that one! Or, at evening, take the cocktail up to that same swing and watch the the sunset as the lights come up on the Washington Cathedral, and the soft lights on the deck come on and suddenly you're in a cozy cacoon of a tent high in the sky and totally, totally peaceful.

Comfortable and quiet apartment in a great neighborhood with a rooftop deck that’s heavenly.

  • 4 of 5

Spent nearly two weeks here while visiting our daughter. Neighborhood is young and vibrant but the apartment was an oasis of quietness. Walking distance to markets, restaurants and the zoo. Enjoyed morning coffee and evening cocktails on the rooftop terrace surrounded by potted plants and a goldfish pond. All in all, a lovely spot in a rich and culturally diverse city.

Amdams Morgan gem

  • 5 of 5

Nice and quiet apartment in Adams Morgan. Convenient to coffee & dining. The weather was ver bad and so I didn't really get to enjoy the view from the rooftop garden. But it looks very idylic. One negative point is that on Saturday nigth, neighbors did use their rooftop garden for a party.

Cosy Apartment in Great Area !

  • 5 of 5

Our first foray in Washington away from the downtown area - my wife and I were very impressed by the Adams Morgan neighbourhood ! Easy access to subway . Felt safe and secure . Enjoyed the walks in Rock Creek and the ethnic restaurants.

The apartment was clean and cosy with everything needed for our stay . The garden deck was a great place for an afternoon break or evening relaxation. Had fun feeding the fish. Stairs might be problem for some. Kitchen was small yet fully stocked . Enjoyed Suzanne's CD collection.

We would definitely recommend this property and hope to stay here again !
