Capitol Hill apartment description

The location is perfect (in the heart of Capitol Hill's best street) for someone on an extended business trip and/or vacation who prefers a different environment vs. a hotel room, and who will treat our home as your own during the short-term stay. The house is located on a Historic St. which is quiet, safe, and within walking distance (blocks) to the famous Eastern Market, Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, Senate, etc. Also within walking distance are shops, restaurants, grocery stores, two Metro stops, jazz clubs, coffee houses, dry cleaners, Shakespeare Theatre, and the famous National Mall where you can visit the Smithsonian museums for free which include the National Gallery of Art, Museum of Natural History, Air and Space museum, etc.

For those unfamiliar with the term carriage house, let me explain: At the turn of the century, most large Victorian homes had a separate small house in the back of the main house to store the carriages as well as horses. Today, as homes were modernized and renovated, the small houses were converted into living dwellings with a private alley entrance not unlike many apartments in Paris, London, (European cities). There are approximately five carriage houses located behind the main houses on our street. The cobblestone alley is well lit, very wide, short, and of course, very safe.

Our street is one of the safest streets in DC as well as the widest and most beautiful. The house is air conditioned, has hardwood floors on the second floor where the living room, entertainment room, master bedroom and bathroom as well as washer/dryer are located. Ceramic tile is on the first floor with a well stocked kitchen, separate dining room, and powder room. Other amenities include DVD Player, two TV's, Stereo, Cable, Wi-Fi, hair dryer, clocks, as well as linens and towels, etc.

The security deposit is due at or before check-in which is 2 PM. Check out time is 10 AM. Note: If checking-in or checking-out outside posted times an additional fee may apply. References required as well as an Application Reservation must be signed which includes the aforementioned terms.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Retired couple, long time residents of the area.

Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
The property was purchased for the owners use and enjoyment. The Carriage House is the owners pied-à-terre and is being made avaliable for occasional use by renters through HomeAway/VRBO. For those unfamiliar with the term carriage house, let me explain: At the turn of the century, most large Victorian homes had a separate small house in the back of the main house to store the carriages as well as horses. Today, as homes were modernized and renovated, the small houses were converted into living dwellings with a private alley entrance not unlike many apartments in Paris, London, (European cities). There are approximately five carriage houses located behind the main houses on our street. The cobblestone alley is well lit, very wide, short, and of course, very safe.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
A residential neighborhood just 6 Blocks from the Nations Capitol; Tree lined extra wide street with rows of turn-of-the-century 4 story victorian homes.
