The property


Charming, older Tudor style home with 3 double bedrooms, 2 of which are en suite, a large garden and a deck off the kitchen, all close to a Metro Rail terminus that is a 15 minute ride to the center of Washington DC with the Capitol, White House, museums and the National Mall (see Metro map). We live in Silver Spring, a lively and vibrant community just outside of Washington DC. The Metro takes us directly into Washington DC, and our line (Red Line) brings visitors directly to the major attractions in the city. (We supply guests Smartrip cards for most easily accessing the Metro). A 45 minute drive away is the Chesapeake Bay, well known for sailing and historic towns. The Atlantic Ocean beaches are a 2-3 hour drive.

The neighbourhood


Within walking distance of our house are two movie theaters, a large one for popular films and a smaller art deco theater that is the home of the American Film Institute, that screens a variety of films both American and foreign, often with directors present to answer questions after the screening. Washington DC has people from around the world and that diversity is well represented in our Silver Spring community. Our local restaurants include Thai, Ethiopian, Burmese, Italian, Greek, Chinese, Japanese, and others. Other cultural opportunities abound, from live theater to music performances. Only a short drive from our house is a major concert venue. At the end of our street is a playground and tennis courts.
