Within walking distance of the Capitol and just a block away from the hip H Street Corridor, 704 G Street is a charming, fully renovated three bedroom, 3-½ bathroom Victorian rowhouse that still retains historic touches. The main level features oak hardwood floors, airy 10-foot high ceilings, recessed lighting and a unique reuse of historic pocket doors to conceal a cleverly built TV and entertainment nook. The kitchen is beautiful and packed with modern and luxurious amenities including honed-finish stone countertops, subway tile backsplash, five-burner gas range with hood and white Shaker-style cabinets with matte black pulls. All appliances are made by Samsung and are stainless steel. There is also powder room tucked away in a corner on the main level. The upper floor features a skylight that illuminates the home with natural light. Doing laundry is easy with washer and dryer hidden in a closet between the two bedrooms. The owner’s bedroom suite welcomes you with an abundance of natural lighting from the bay window. The luxurious en-suite bathroom touts a beautiful, frameless glass shower divider, over-sized vanity and skylight. The second bedroom suite has a large closet and a private ceramic tile bath. The lower level is the icing on the cake with a second kitchen, third bedroom, a large full-bath with floor-to-ceiling ceramic tile wainscoting, clawfoot tub, a second washer/dryer and access to the rear. The rear courtyard is fully-fenced with access to the main alley through a horse-walk. This ideal location is literally steps from the H Street Corridor, boasts a 97 Walker’s Paradise Walkscore and a 99 Biker’s Paradise Score. Walk to all the hot bars, restaurants and shops on H Street, and the new Streetcar which takes you right to Union Station, which is just a few blocks away anyways. This location is second to none!
H Street NE, a dynamic one-and-a-half mile stretch in Northeast DC, is known for its nightlife, restaurants, pop-ups, festivals and communal atmosphere. Art lovers flock to The Atlas Performing Arts Center, home to a variety of performances, events and initiatives spanning a range of artistic traditions. The Atlas bills itself as “where the arts, culture and connection happen on H Street.” The neighborhood’s largest event is the annual H Street Festival, which spans 10 blocks and attracts roughly thousands of patrons. Highlights of the fall event include musical performances and multi-cultural entertainment, in addition to art exhibits, for-sale crafts and an array of offerings from local food trucks and restaurants.
Another must-see: the seasonal H Street Farmers’ Market, open Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from mid-April to mid-December at 800 13th Street NE. Visitors will find the best of local, seasonal bounty, including handmade cow milk cheeses, fruits, vegetables, pastries and flowers. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a live chef demo and score some free samples. As far as restaurants go, expect a multitude of delectable options. Local chef Erik Bruner-Yang first attracted foodies to H Street with Toki Underground, which serves up hearty bowls of ramen and dumplings. While no longer with Toki Underground, diners can find Bruner-Yang further down the street at Maketto, a dining-retail-coffee shop triumvirate featuring Taiwanese fare, as well as Cambodian dishes. Nearby, Le Grenier serves up French fare in an industrial-chic setting and Ben’s Chili Bowl delights visitors with its half-smokes.
