Spacious, quiet, characterful apartment. All amenities available. Very pleasant sitting in lounge in the afternoon. It is a metro ride into the centre of Washington if you do not have a car, but the metro is fast, efficient and nearby.

About the neighbourhood
Mt. Pleasant is a Historic neighborhood close to the National Zoo, downtown, shopping and public transportation with a great farmers market on Saturdays. Excerpt from a Washington Post article about the Mount Pleasant neighborhood: 'Bob Mondello, who reviews movies and covers the arts for National Public Radio, has lived in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Northwest Washington since 1986.“The place was spectacular,' he said. “Listen, I bought for the apartment [but] the attractive thing about this neighborhood at the time for me was a hippy back in college. I had ideals about the kind of places I wanted to live. . . . [Mount Pleasant] was just very appealing in that sense to my idea of what society ought to be.' Home, sweet home: Mount Pleasant is an overwhelming residential area with a mixture of apartment buildings, condominium buildings, 20th-century rowhouses, Victorians and colonial revival mansions. Several of the larger houses have been converted into condos. “The housing stock is just gorgeous,' Mondello said. “As you go down Park Road, those big houses are beautiful.' Small-town feel: Many of the homes have porches. The tree-lined streets encourage strolling. The National Zoo is steps away. Cultural Tourism DC has put together a 90-minute self-guided walking tour, “Village in the City: Mount Pleasant Heritage Trail.' “Walking is one of the big attractions of the place,' he said. “To be able to walk down into [Rock Creek Park], it is literally a block and a half behind us. To be able to look at the park from our windows is incredibly appealing. To be able to just wander around [the neighborhood] and just sort of stroll is great. It rewards moseying.' Bilingual: Mount Pleasant is one of the more diverse enclaves in Washington and has long been a haven for the District's Latino community. It also has a large concentration of former Peace Corps workers. At the newly renovated Mount Pleasant branch of the D.C. public library, the only public library in Ward 1, 10 of the 14 staff members are bilingual. History: Mount Pleasant's history stretches back to the 1700s. The neighborhood evolved from a fashionable streetcar suburb and bedroom community for government workers to a working-class urban neighborhood that welcomed refugees. It is home to the first African American place of worship on 16th Street, Canaan Baptist Church. Mount Pleasant was designated a historic district in 1987. Eating and drinking: There's no lack of places to grab a cup of coffee. Dos Gringos, a vegetarian coffeehouse, and Flying Fish are more recent additions to the neighborhood. Many restaurants cater to Central and South American cliental; Don Juan and Haydee's are two of the more popular. Mondello and partner, Carlos Schroder, a native Argentinian, frequent Corado's, a Guatemalan restaurant. The Raven Grill, which has been around since the 1930s, Marx Cafe and Tonic are neighborhood hangouts. Mom and pop stores: Mount Pleasant Street is the neighborhood's commercial strip. The majority of businesses are not national chains. Logan's Antique Shop, with its quirky selection, has been around since 1974. A farmers market is held Saturday mornings at Lamont Park. Boundaries: Piney Branch Parkway to the north, 16th Street NW to the east, Harvard Street to the south and Beach Drive to the west.
