My two-story townhouse has been completely renovated since I bought it in 2007, including kitchen, powder room and two bathrooms. The first floor comprises an entrance hall, the powder room, large living-dining room and the kitchen. A very private deck with gas grill is adjacent to the dining room. Living room has a working fireplace.
There are 3 bedrooms on the second floor, although one is furnished as a den/office. The master bedroom features a queen bed and the second bedroom has a double bed. The master bath has a large walk-in shower. The hall bath has a tub/shower.
There is wireless Internet, televisions in the living room, kitchen and office/den. Stereo system in the living room. The kitchen is well equipped, including toaster, blender, food processor, Kitchen Aid mixer, coffee maker and grinder, microwave.
My townhouse is part of a long-standing condo community in a highly desirable neighborhood. It is within a five-minute walk to shopping, restaurants and movie theaters. The Metro to downtown DC is about a 10-15 minute walk. The Capital Crescent bike/walking trail is nearby and runs along an old train track down to the Potomac river and then follows the C&O Canal tow path into the Georgetown neighborhood of DC.
A car is not really required to get around, but there is ample parking available in front of my townhouse and use of my car is negotiable. I have one bicycle available for your use.

I am a single (divorced) woman living with one cat named Mango (visible in a couple of photos). My daughter lives in Los Angeles, and I am always interested in possible swaps there or nearby locations, especially Santa Barbara, where I have friends. Most of my career has been spent in planning and developing national health education campaigns and educational and training materials, eg, continuing medical education, for government agencies and non-profit organizations. I am basically retired except for an occasional consulting job. Currently doing volunteer work at a writing tutoring center in downtown DC.
Many years ago I lived and worked in Brussels, Belgium, and have had the travel itch ever since. Most of my international travel has been in Europe, especially France. I recently completed Home Exchange visits in Copenhagen and Stockholm.
