Capitol Hill apartment description

At 816 sq ft, (76 meters), this ground level studio apt., located in the heart of Capitol Hill, is larger that most 1 bedroom units on The Hill. The unit offers city living w/ plenty of international accents. Whether it’s the Moroccan lanterns that cast exotic shadows in the open corridor, or the French coffee and pastries that lure you to the bistro-styled dining area, the French and American owners definitely have the “French Touch.” This unit is extremely spacious w/ its dedicated bedroom, living, dining, kitchen, reading nook & bathroom. The queen bed, twin day bed and futon couch in the living area accommodate up to 4 people comfortably.

YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME... The unit features a kitchen, dining area, bedroom, living room, with central air, washer/dryer, steam dishwasher, toaster, microwave, stove, granite counter-tops, accent lighting, exposed brick, ceramic floor, “California”-style closet, flat screen TV w/ cable, Nintendo Wii console and games, gas grill and free Wi-FI.

WE'VE THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING... High-quality linen, bathrobes, slippers, luxury soaps, iron/board, dishes, coffee grinders, coffee makers, tea pot, champagne and wine glasses, cocktail shaker, luggage racks, playing cards, a first-aid kit, cooking and grilling utensils, eclectic with books for kids and adults, first aid kit and a handyman's toolkit.

We provide starter items so that you don't have to run to the store for basic things like condiments/seasonings, cooking oil, teas, sugar, washing detergent, paper goods, etc.

We even have a portable foot bath and salts for after those long walks around the National Mall.

OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR... Like Paris, Washington, DC is a walking city. Step outside the front entrance and explore both the popular and hidden treasures of Capitol Hill. A ten-minute walk takes you to bustling Eastern Market—-one of the only remaining merchant markets left in Washington. A trip on the weekend gives visitors a sense of the character and charm that residents and guests from all over the world have come to appreciate. Browse the craft stands of local artists and artisans or shop for antiques. Enjoy breakfast at the Market Lunch or pick up some fresh produce, fish or meat to bring back for the grill.

The unit is several blocks from the U.S. Capitol and minutes from the Library of Congress, Supreme Court, Union Station and National Mall. Great location for Spring Break, Summer vacations and Fall/Winter Holidays.

CONVENIENT TO KEY ATTRACTIONS: Within 10-20 minutes walking, you will find many significant American landmarks, museums, and monuments including the U.S. Capitol, U.S. Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, Folger Shakespeare Library, Union Station, the Marine Corps Barracks, and Congressional Cemetery. Venture down one of the historic residential alleyways like Archibald Walk and Brown’s Court. Each will tell a story of their own.

Walk, bike or take the train to other convenient sites and neighborhood including the White House, Arlington Cemetery, Georgetown, Dupont Circle, Woodley Park and Adams Morgan. Capital Bikeshare stations are blocks away in every direction.

Well-mannered children are welcome.
Smoking is not permitted in the house.
Check online calendar for availability before contacting owner.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: She's American, he's French and together they've created a special place filled with the best of both worlds.

Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
Location, Location, Location. We wanted to be close to the action, yet far enough away to enjoy a quiet night of sleep. It's easily accessible to major attraction and highways. The house was originally built in 1920 and totally renovated to include the most up-to-date amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The unit is equipped with everything you need. Whatever is missing is only a request away. We're always available to assist. One guest described their visit as 'it was like staying with friends'. On the other hand, if you are totally self sufficient, you'll never see us. Only know we're a text or phone call away.
