We have agreed on an exchange for summer 2020, but we will consider offers for fall 2020 or spring 2021. We are open to all offers, including short term exchanges at any time of the year with families in the USA and Canada.
House in Quiet, Nearby Maryland Suburb of Washington, DC
We are a retired government worker and a retired teacher and have done several wonderful house exchanges. We love exploring new places and meeting the people who live there.
Our home is located just 12 kilometers north of the center of Washington, D.C. in Kensington, Maryland. Kensington is a pleasant, quiet, safe town with convenient access to downtown Washington by car or the Metro (our subway system). The grocery store, several small shops, and a few casual restaurants are a mile away, and there are many more stores and restaurants within a 15 minute drive. It takes 30-45 minutes to get to downtown Washington by car, bus, or Metro subway. In the city you can visit the many free museums, spend time at the National Zoo, or see the many monuments and memorials that make the city distinctive.
Our home is less than a kilometer away from the Beltway, the ring road around Washington, so other areas beyond Washington are easily accessible by car. These include historical sites, family amusement parks, and the cities of Baltimore, Richmond, Williamsburg, Charlottesville, the colonial seaport Annapolis, and Philadelphia. New York City is a three hour train ride away, and both the mountains to the west and the Atlantic Ocean beach resorts to the east are about three hours away. We have 3 international airports, each within an hour’s drive--Dulles International Airport, Reagan National Airport, and Baltimore-Washington International Airport.
Our home, on a quiet street with little traffic, has two floors plus a basement. On the ground-level floor is the living room, dining room, sun room, an office, and the family room, adjacent to the kitchen and with an eat-in dining area. There is also a powder room (WC) on this level. The floor above has 3 bedrooms (two with queen beds, one with a double bed) and an office. The master bedroom has its own bathroom; there is a second bathroom shared by the other bedrooms; there is also a laundry room with washer and dryer on the same floor as the bedrooms. In the basement there is a second family room, another bathroom, a storage room and workrooms. The shady backyard has a patio.
The house has Wifi; it also has whole-house air conditioning. We have a comfortable five-passenger sedan that will be available for your use. We have two young cats, very lovable and sweet, who do not go outside. They enjoy company and are friendly. Neighbors will feed them when house exchange guests are gone overnight. We are non-smokers and do not permit smoking in or near the house.
We enjoy sightseeing, exploring the countryside, visiting villages and towns, shopping in markets, and learning the history of the places we visit. We often travel with another retired couple; all of us enjoy how relaxing a house exchange can be. We can be depended on to take good care of your home and any pets you may have!
