Long-term guests will love this spacious, sunny English basement with private garden entrance. Main bedroom and bath completely private. We need to use washer and dryer but otherwise, you have private use of living room, office space, guest beds, and 2 cable TVs, WiFi, W/D. Short bus ride to NIH, Navy Med, or Metro to DC. The best fit would be one or two adults but it's big enough to accomodate kids. We are willing to discuss a pet.
No smoking in the house (but it's OK on the deck)
The backyard is fenced in to keep Mike the Wonder-Doodle from wandering off so please be sure to close and latch the gate in the driveway when you come in and out. Mike has learned to check every time someone leaves.
We need to separate trash into:
1: Bottles, Glass, Plastic (small blue bin in driveway)
2. Paper, Cardboard, Mail (large blue bin in driveway)
3. Other Trash. (Gray bin in driveway)
There is a two-stage trash bin in the Laundry area. Trash bags are in the tall cabinets.
There are small plastic frogs near your exterior door and under the laundry tub. Please leave them there--they're dampness alarms.
There are two fire extinguishers in the bedroom closet along with a First Aid kit. The basement is equipped with smoke alarms and a carbon monoxide detector/alarm. If you hear an alarm, just LEAVE THE HOUSE.

Terry Irving has worked as a motorcycle courier, bartender, bouncer, director at two tech startups, Don Imus' video impresario and, for almost 40 years, an award-winning network TV news producer - covering stories from Presidential Elections to War in Beirut to the Tsunami in Indonesia. He can usually understand French, Spanish, and Italian and am quite willing to mangle any other language so long as you're willing to try.
Currently, he's locked in his tiny Home Office trying to write enough thrillers and detective stories to survive. His first novel, "Courier," is a political thriller with lots of motorcycles and was released by a British publisher in 2014. They closed 6 weeks later but Terry denies all responsibility.
Currently, he is publishing Courier through his own company, Ronin Robot Press, and plans to follow it with "Day of the Dragonking," a paranormal/political thriller, "Warrior," the sequel to "Courier," and "Taxi Dancer," the first in a series about a private eye in 1930s Manila.
He is almost always home, typing away in his upstairs office, while his wife, Ann MacFarlane (who was also a TV news producer) really runs the place. We are lucky enough to share the house with Mike, the WonderDoodle and two Balinese cats--Nemo and Miss Daisy. (Ann is very sensitive to allergens and she has no problems with these breeds. They are bred for low dander.)
We like our lives to be relaxed and stress-free and enjoy walking Mike in the enormous open field two blocks away, watching the cats destroy the place, and sleeping in.
