618 9th is located in the heart of coveted Capital Hill, a neighborhood with a sense of history, pride, & community. A dreamy neighborhood if you’re a walker, just 0.06 miles to Union Station (or hop on the H St Trolley). Depending on your mood, you can capture H Street’s contemporary vibe or head over to Eastern Market to savor the long-established, well-loved vendors. The home is 0.3 miles to Whole Foods and Giant Grocery. For park time, Stanton and Lincoln Parks are just a short walk. Even better, everyone can enjoy the fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, or the kid’s playground, part of the Sherwood Recreation Center just across the street. This block of 9th street is a micro-community that will welcome you warmly!
This ENERGY-EFFICIENT home has been totally renovated with high-performance construction materials, creating a thermally efficient and acoustically neutral building starting with new 4” concrete slab over a plastic moisture barrier sheet to minimize air and moisture infiltration within the house. New floor joists have been used and all walls have been insulated with high-grade insulation materials.
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.
