Washington | DC
Life doesn’t get more “D.C.” than it does when you’re living in an incredible, 2,238 sq. ft. Capitol Hill-style townhome situated between two of the District’s most exciting neighborhoods. Built in 1905 and renovated just this year, this 4 br, 3.5 bth townhome is a short walk from all of the fabulous culture, cuisine, shops and saloons of NoMA and the H Street Corridor, including the famous Union Market. Step inside your townhome and enjoy wonderfully comfortable living with spacious rooms, plenty of natural light and dual-zoned HVAC. The back of the house provides great getaway space with a privacy-fenced courtyard and decks on both the first and second floors that look out on your lovely residential neighborhood. The top-to-bottom renovation features all new flooring throughout, gorgeous bathrooms, an incredible kitchen with a gas stove and a separate dining area. The finished basement isn’t your typical TV room, either; it’s a big, brand-new living space that could easily be an income source as a rental for students at nearby Gallaudet University. Being in one of the most walkable areas you’ll find anywhere, you don’t have to have a car at this address, but if you do there is on-street parking for residents. Wherever you need to go in the D.C. Metro, you can get there easily by being so close to NoMA-Gallaudet Metro Station. The urban D.C. lifestyle you’re looking for is waiting for you at 1003 Florida Ave NE.
Stretching from Union Station to the south and Q and R streets NE to the north, this rapidly developing area takes its name from its location north of Massachusetts Avenue NE. It is best known as a transportation hub and the home of Union Market, a restored grocery and specialty food hall that’s at the epicenter of DC’s gourmet scene. It’s also home to Gallaudet University, the nation’s only college for deaf and hard-of-hearing students, and National Public Radio.
Union Market, located in a restored, mid-century food hall, caters to couples, kids and chefs with its mix of restaurants, kitchen supply retailers and gourmet shops selling spices, meat and such. Creative businesses have popped up in the industrial zone surrounding the market, too, including an Angelika movie theater, the Dolcezza Gelato & Coffee Factory and Masseria, a Michelin-starred Italian restaurant from chef Nicholas Stefanelli. For International Women’s Day in 2015, LA-based graffiti artist Mr. Brainwash created a heart-filled mural at Union Market that has quickly become one of the neighborhood’s most Instagramable images. Even first lady Michelle Obama had her photo taken there, when she met the artist.
Shops and restaurants have also opened in redeveloped historic buildings like the Hecht’s Warehouse, an early 20th-century department-store storage facility that is now home to a distilleries, acclaimed restaurants and much more, and the Uline Arena, a barrel-vaulted brick building that hosted the Beatles first U.S. concert and now holds a flagship REI store and more. The second-busiest Amtrak hub in the nation, Union Station is situated along Massachusetts Avenue NE. With shopping, restaurants and tours galore, Union Station is a good first stop on your trip to the NoMa neighborhood. You can also find Capital Bikeshare stations near NoMa, or hop on the eight-mile-long Metropolitan Branch Trail here, which goes all the way to Silver Spring, Md.
