Washington | DC
Victorian beauty that is delightfully expansive. She has beautiful tall ceilings on each level that will make you jump for joy. The updated kitchen with a 5 burner stove, dishwasher, microwave and paneled refrigerator will leave you excited to entertain your friends, who just walked 2 blocks from Union Station to enjoy the city from your deck and expansive yard. When you go upstairs, 3 beds/ 2 bath, you are treated to a well-sized bedroom and full bath and then flattered with Jack and Jill master suites, one larger than the other with plenty of closet space for even the biggest Capitol Hill fashionista. Do you need parking for 2? We have you covered. Are you considering a short-term rental business or maybe someone more permanent or do you just want to reclaim the space for yourself? The English basement is perfect with a full-sized washer/dryer, kitchen with dishwasher, electric stove, and refrigerator. The one bedroom in the back boasts dueling closets and again, the ceiling height is worth noting. Patio space under the deck can be the perfect hang-out spot for lower level occupants or additional entertainment. A lockable storage shed would be perfect for anything from bikes to tools and the commercial-grade roll-up garage door is built to last. It’s worth noting that if you’re not familiar with the neighborhood literally across the street morning coffee options and there are amazing lunch/dinner options, still residential while in the heart of it all. Make this gorgeous property your own and you will not believe how lucky you are to be here.
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.
