About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Classic D.C. Residence

Our house abuts Glover Park and is built in a neighborhood where sidewalks are shaded by Ginkgo trees and gardens are finely tended. You will be able to watch the flow of our healthy community while sitting on our porch swing, greeting neighbors who pass by. Inside the house, we have a custom-built bookcase with a large collection of classic and contemporary literature, as well as a synced media system that can play YouTube videos, music and Netflix easily from your iPhone, or with our remote. Our kitchen has remained a modern staple complimenting the vibrant-classic feel of the living room and dining room. The outdoor patio is recently rebuilt and is a tranquil place to kick back with a good Patterson or Foer novel and eat some fresh-grilled delights. Upstairs we have one main bathroom with a tub; a guest room with a double bed, a guest room with a queen-size bed; and a master bedroom with another queen-size bed, boudoir, and side bathroom with shower.

Moving from our house and walking east on Calvert Street will bring you to Wisconsin Avenue, a vein that leads to the bustling commerce hub of Georgetown. At the intersection of Wisconsin and Calvert you will see the Zagat-applauded, Cali-Mex restaurant, Surfside (my favorite) where afterward, you can melt a milkshake at 'All About Burger'. Enjoy a Sunday date at the 'social' Safeway and walk across the Avenue to look at the wares of the weekly bazaar. Moving south, you can take a tour of the splendid university campus or historic mansions and play tennis on public courts. Further down Wisconsin, you will find boutique clothing shops, antique bookstores and high-end shopping that embody the heart of Georgetown. As the day wanes into night, you could enjoy the view from the waterfront and walk alongside an impressive surviving relic of the American canal-building era, the C&O Canal.

During twilight, the intersection of Wisconsin and M populates with a mixed palette of personas whose evenings may begin at one of the classy tapas restaurants and end at one of the various bars and nightclubs that concentrate at the corner of Wisconsin and M Street and continue dotting north to reach the late-night establishments surrounding Wisconsin and Calvert. These include: Bread Soda - where you can play shuffleboard and eat a nice cheese platter with your drinks; Town Hall for a talented barkeep's taste on a good ol' fashioned; or the young professional nightclub, the Mason Inn, where you can dance and easily walk home from.

A quick cab or bus ride will take you to metro stations at Dupont Circle or Foggy Bottom, where you can access most landmarks in the city easily and reach any of the Smithsonian Museums, National Mall memorials, or the Capitol complex.

About Sebastian Herrick

I am a Washingtonian who was born and raised in this house before moving to Colorado. From Colorado, I went to high school in Maine, then college at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. I finally returned home after college and developed professionally in this city of opportunity. I love this home and all of the memories it has provided both for me and the guests who have stayed within its walls. My prerogative is to share the good feelings fostered within this house with travelers who need a comfortable base when exploring the District.

Sebastian Herrick purchased this townhome in 1983

Why Sebastian Herrick chose Glover Park

This home has provided happiness for family, friends and tenants for the past 34 years. It has become more beautiful after remodeling the kitchen, installing bookshelves, and rebuilding the upstairs, while I have played my part in crafting a new deck and maintaining the property for the past eight years.

What makes this townhome unique

The house has great chi. Neighbors have stopped by just to peek at our overarching dogwood tree and front yard. The lighting is of top focus for our family. This house has a feel for the dynamics of light and how it makes a room appear lively, especially in the living room and kitchen. Seamlessly moving from sophisticated to modern to comfortable, this house puts together different ambiances to form one unique experience.

Lovely City Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter, a junior in high school, is interested in attending university in Washington D.C. We were very impressed with The Calvert Place. It is centrally located between Georgetown, American and George Washington universities.

The home is close to all the amenities of city life but tucked away on a quiet street in a friendly neighborhood. It was clean, nicely furnished with colorful, fun artwork.

It is in an excellent location in our nation's capital. Of course, as mentioned several times, Sebastian was a charming host and a great resource.

Great Place in DC With Lovely Atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay at Sebastian’s home. The house is very clean, with a comfortable feel and unique character. The home is stocked with amenities that were quite useful to some travelers who may forget an odd or an end. The rooms each had their own feel (my favorite is the blue room, upstairs to the right), and looked just as good to better than the pictures. Sebastian was always available through text and email if we had questions on nearby activities, and it was a lovely stay at his home.

Perfect house, perfect location, wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property! Our family utilizes VRBO all over the US and this experience was one of the best. Perfect location to have as home base when visiting DC, especially if your visit is centered around one of the universities nearby as ours was. Sebastian was accommodating and flexible, the house was exactly as "advertised". Even the neighbors were friendly!

Warm and welcoming home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Four of my sisters and I stayed here for a long weekend, to be with our father on his Honor Flight tour of D.C. We.enjoyed the warm welcome when we arrived, and we loved returning each night to the comfort of this home away from home, where we were able to relax and unwind after long days of walking and sightseeing. Thank you Sebastian, for sharing your lovely home, neighborhood, and recommations, and for being so accommodating to our needs. We had a wonderful time!

Clean, close to Georgetown activities.

  • 5 of 5

House is well kept and furnished. It does require climbing stairs to use bathrooms since they are both upstairs. Master bedroom has an extra space for an air mattress if needed for kids. Otherwise, there are 3 queens upstairs and a sofa downstairs. Sebastian was a great host. Any discrepancies were fixed right away.

We are in a neighborhood close to one of the most active areas of Washington, DC! Walk down to Georgetown for boutique and designer shopping or take a hike through lush and mysterious Rock Creek Park. We are a mile-and-a-half away from the waterfront of the Potomac River where you could catch a massage, movie, and end a warm summer day with a kayak ride. Just up the road is the National Cathedral, and if you would like to brush up on history or enjoy fine art, travel down to the Smithsonian Museums and National Mall where you can immerse yourself in the heart Washington, DC. If you'd like a Capitol tour, I would be happy to arrange this. Also, White House tours are available, though I would need about four months in advance to book as they are in high demand. If you desire a more low-key afternoon, we are close to many coffee and tea shops as well as fine dining restaurants nearby. Even if just walking through our neighborhood on a summer day, you will find our neighbors' front lawns flowing with colorful flowers and well-kept patios, as well as overhanging gingko trees that provide just the right amount of shade.
