I am looking for a housesitter for my two 5-year old yellow labs. They require 2 walks per day and letting out into the garden 1-2 times per day.
I live in a beautiful and spacious 3 bedroom home in Washington DC's Chevy Chase suburb. The home is located in a quiet, family-friendly neighbourhood and is easily connected to everything Washington DC has to offer. It is a 25 minute drive to Downtown DC or 10 minutes to Downtown Bethesda. You will have use of my car (and parking space in front of the house) during your stay. The house is also connected to public transport with a bus stop 7 minutes' walk away, and the Red Line metro 10 minutes drive. The house is a short (7 minute) drive from a range of amenities: supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, movie theatre, etc. It is also a 7 minute walk from DC's Rock Creek Park which is ideal for walking and hiking in beautiful nature in the heart of DC.
The house is newly refurbished (new kitchen and bathrooms, new flooring throughout) and includes 3 double bedrooms (2 with en suite bathrooms), 3 full bathrooms and a half-bathroom, well-equipped open-plan kitchen and dining room, comfortable furnishings. The main floor includes the kitchen, dining room, large living room, den/study area and a half bathroom. The upstairs has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. And the walk-out basement has a bedroom with en suite, a living room/baby room, and laundry with washer and dryer. There is an enclosed garden with a beautiful terrace with barbecue and lounge set, perfect for the DC summer evenings.
I have 5 grandchildren so the house is also well-equipped for young children including a crib, a travel crib, high chair, bouncer, toys, etc.
