Stunning and historic on the outside while touting a modern and pampered vibe on the inside. Forget those teeny-tiny, two-bedroom houses around the Hill. For less money, you can get yourself more square footage, two sizeable rooms, two luxurious full baths, and a living space dedicated to refined living. This 1920’s building was given a complete makeover in 2014 with an emphasis on open space, highlighted by quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, white shaker cabinets, hardwood flooring, large walk-in closet & full-size washer/dryer (in unit). Located .3 miles from a metro makes it a commuter’s dream, and being less than a mile from Eastern Market, H St & all the new development in Hill East means fun and food are always close by.

Capitol Hill is one of the city’s most popular places to live, with 19th-century rowhouses and a market plus a vibrant dining and nightlife scene. Politicos, young staffers and tourists alike head to the neighborhood both for its government buildings like the U.S. Capitol and the Supreme Court and the surrounding historic, walkable, restaurant-filled blocks. Tour the U.S. Capitol via its impressive visitors center; guides lead small groups under the intricately painted, 180-plus-foot dome and past the dimly lit Old Supreme Court Chamber. You’ll need a reservation for the tour or to visit Congress or the Senate (when they are in session); for the latter, just contact your senator or house representative. Nearby, the Library of Congress’ impressive 1897 Thomas Jefferson building is open for tours that reveal its Italian-Renaissance style architecture and gilt murals plus the stunning, circular main reading room with its 160-foot-high ceiling. Other attractions include the Folger Shakespeare Library (the world’s largest collection of the author’s timeless works), and the glassed-in U.S. Botanic Garden at the base of Capitol Hill, which holds palms, ferns, and orchids and provides a peaceful escape.

 

Nineteenth and early 20th-century rowhouses (think turrets, stained glass, and ironwork) lead to throwback commercial zones. Eastern Market, an 1873 redbrick building houses grocers, bakers and pasta makers inside every day plus a lively weekend bazaar with produce, crafts, and antiques. The nearby micro-neighborhood of Barracks Row centers on 8th Street SE, where vintage storefronts hold oyster houses, pubby bars, and foodie-focused restaurants. Closer to the Capitol, Massachusetts Avenue NE has multiple restaurants and longtime watering holes.
