"The Rest" is a lovely 18th century Colonial mansion located in a coveted uptown neighborhood of Washington, DC. This aptly named home is surrounded by a half-acre garden and is one of the oldest extant houses in the capital city.
With a large, almost wraparound porch and a unique tower, the house features five bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. The rooms have high ceilings, blown glass windows, built-in cabinets and bookcases, and hardwood floors. Eight fireplaces and an alcove between the first and second floor give the interior a cozy feel. Preserved ceiling beams, dormer windows, and wooden exterior shutters are classic Colonial elements that make "The Rest" a truly unique property. There is a guest house, which can also be used as a studio or an office, and a gazebo in the garden.
Enjoy quiet evenings on the front porch and wow visitors with views of the Washington Monument from the tower.
