Available starting September 1, the Loft Room (our guest bedroom) is large (12 x 20) and furnished on the second floor of our 4-bedroom / 2 bath single family home on a forested property featuring azalea, rhododendron and dogwood. There is a back deck with a chiminea (fireplace) which is a great spot to relax and watch fireflies at night. The house has 1.5 acres so we are big gardeners, sometimes with fresh veggies to share. Two cats also share the house. There is a warm, friendly atmosphere in the house - and also good privacy. The $900 monthly rent includes utilities & internet with Verizon FIOS Wi-Fi. Street parking is always open in this residential neighborhood.
The No. 34 bus is 2 blocks away and travels down Connecticut Avenue for an easy ride to NIH and downtown DC. It is easy to catch the metro to D.C. via Wheaton Metro Red line, located within a half mile (15 minute walk). Westfield Mall is a 5-minute walk and hosts a movie theater, supermarkets, Costco, Target, Chipotle, CVS, and other retail.
A quick walk also brings you to Wheaton's array of excellent ethnic restaurants with Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Indian, Vietnamese, Italian and all manner of Latin American cuisine. Nearby downtown Kensington is known for its 'Antique Row,' a relaxing neighborhood walk away that also gains access to the MARC train. The station hosts a Saturday farmers' market with an array of local veggies, artisan cheeses, breads, free-range chicken, and ready-to-eat breakfast and lunch foods (including coffee!).
