The neighborhood:

Location, Location, Location. The Woodley park neighborhood is one the most sought after locations for its upscale houses, beautiful streets and convenience. You do not need a car to get around here since the metro and the bus are about a half a block away (less than 5 minute walk). You can walk to DuPont Circle, Downtown, the White House and the Mall. The Zoo is, of course, a block away. There are plenty of restaurants around the corner from the house where you can taste some of the best foods DC has to offer. The Hot and Juicy, a shrimp and Craw-fish restaurant, is a late night gem. The Lebanese Taverna, Le Pettit Plat (a french restaurant), Pizze (an Italian Pizzeria), Dunkin Donuts, McDonald's, an Indian cuisine, an Afghan Kabab restaurant around the corner, and a Chipotle just to name a few. There is also a convenient grocery store, Manhattan Market, as well as a CVS pharmacy within a block from here.

About Allen

The redhead next to me is my wife Ana.

We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own (not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle (he thinks he is a giant).

We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc.

There isn't any city that offers so much!

I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and we really enjoy doing what we do.

Allen purchased this house in 2012

Why Allen chose Embassy Row

This unit is practically brand new. We gutted it out and redid the whole thing in 2012.

What makes this house unique

This house is in walking distance to the Zoo, and metro station (Woodley Park-Zoo). It's close to tons of restaurants and shops. The National Mall is a 20 minute car ride (with no traffic), and a 20 minute metro ride.

The house was clean, well equipped and perfect for eight of us for spring break week in DC. It is centrally located from all attractions and just wish we could have had more time there!

Awesome D.C. Experience

  • 5 of 5

The Woodley house is in a perfect location. It's all that Allen said it would be. It's close to Metro, neighborhood restaurants and pharmacy. There were ten of us staying there. Women ranging in ages from 57 to 85. The stairs to the downstairs bedrooms is a little steep but they are manageable. The house was comfortable for the ten of us. We used Metro our first morning. However, the Metro wasn't a comfortable place for the older women so we chose to use Uber and Lyft which proved to be most convenient with less walking. Allen responded quickly to my phone calls and emails. I would recommend renting any of Allen's properties.
