This is the home you’ve been waiting for. Tucked into the Hill East neighborhood, this home has a lot to love and shines with the love it’s been given. Updated in 2017, this open-concept home delivers a ton of space across three floors, four bedrooms, and three and a half baths. Start with the owner’s suite, which features raised ceilings and an ensuite bath. The main level is an entertainer’s dream, with an open-concept vibe and a perfect gateway to the private outdoor space. The basement has a massive pantry, additional hangout area, and a bedroom suite fit for any of your favorite visitors. Oh, yea – don’t forget about the private off-street parking spot! It’s large and will easily accommodate a car or SUV. The current owners loved frequent strolls to Eastern Market and Congressional Cemetery (the best-kept secret of a dog park in the city). With nearby access to grocery stores like the hip new Safeway, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s, your options have never looked better. Not looking to cook? Be sure to check out The Roost on Pennsylvania Ave (new food hall), H St, or Barracks Row. Did we mention it’s inbound for Maury?
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.
