We admit it, we're somewhat fanatical about federal style houses. Tudor Place is a beautiful example, but more than that, it was the home for a prominent Washington family for six generations from the early days of the republic up into the 1980s. The original...More

Beautiful gardens located in the heart of Georgetown. I believe about five acres of English Gardens with lots of private spots for a small group or couples to have a peaceful picnic or just relax.
