Sunny, charming room in an urban townhouse

Offering a quiet, sunny, spacious bedroom in a townhouse in the diverse, friendly, and pleasant Petworth neighborhood in midtown Washington. House is easy walking distance to several bus lines and bike rentals, restaurants, coffeehouses, ethnic markets, farmers' markets, grocery stores, library and rec center. Here are some online sources about Petworth:

In addition to the capacious bedroom, guests will share a newly renovated bathroom in which they will have their own sink, storage drawers, and towel racks. There is also a half-bathroom on the main floor. Guests will also share a living room, dining room, modern kitchen, washer-dryer, porch and backyard. The house is one of a row of attached houses with friendly, cooperative neighbors. Guests may be as private or interactive as they choose during their stay.

Owner works from home and is active in community. Lucy, a small, senior, non-shedding dog, is a slightly eccentric guardian of the household. Regretfully, owner is not set up to host Airbnb-type visits due to strict local regulations, and cannot accommodate guests looking to visit for less than a month.

About Me
I have earned an MA in Hebrew Bible and I study Talmud when I can. I am a semi-retired realtor and have been working with progressive groups and campaigns to help flip legislative seats from Republican to Democrat. I served until end-2018 on a hyperlocal neighborhood commission for four years and have become familiar with city government and elected officials and neighborhood challenges. I have no current plans to travel out of the country during the term of the lease.
