Welcome home to the very heart of Cap Hill! This stunning federal-style property is a legal two-unit with outdoor space to spare in the front and rear. Walk through the front gardens and pause on the covered porch to take in the tree-lined view. Inside you’ll be delighted by the high ceilings and spacious formal sitting and dining rooms. Don’t miss the crown molding, historic tin kitchen ceiling, pocket doors, fireplace, and built-ins! Original stately details are prevalent throughout this house balanced by modern amenities. Tired of open floorplans and aching for main floor closets and the ability to close a door? We have what you’re looking for! Now pass the updated powder room and enter into the renovated kitchen with both an eat-in peninsula and a tiled flex room in the rear. Out the back door is a very large fenced-in patio, perfect for grilling, fire pits, entertaining, playing, relaxing, and working out. Through the fence, you’ll find a two-car garage and/or ample workspace if you’re so inclined. Remote garage openers included. Access this garage via low-vehicular traffic bricked alley.
Upstairs you’ll find 2 very large bedrooms and bathrooms, a W/D in hallway, ample closets, sky lights, and newly upgraded vanities.
Downstairs offers a 1 bed/1 bath apartment, complete with living room and kitchen, featuring a fireplace, exposed brick, and original hardwoods still in excellent condition! Front and rear exit of course.
Neighborhood notes: You are smack in the middle of Stanton Park 2 blocks north, Lincoln Park 4 blocks east, Supreme Court 5 blocks west, and Eastern Market 3 block south. Enjoy being serenaded by the Capitol Hillbillies on the weekend, and proudly be a part of the block made famous during pandemic for scavenger hunt window art.
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.
