Property description

City living and an organic environment make this apartment the perfect experience—right in the historic district of Capitol Hill, in the prestigious Lincoln Park neighborhood, a short walk or bike to everything! If we are already booked, try our 2nd floor unit: VRBO # 85729 -- it's done in the same style!??This charming 1912 corner row house is a historic renovated corner barbershop, with a private entrance, 900 square feet of sunny living space with high ceilings, full sunlight through large windows that face east, south and west.??There is a bus stop on the block, and it is a ten-minute walk to the orange-line metro at Eastern Market and then just one stop to the Capitol and the beginning of the Smithsonian Mall. Take a ten to twenty minute walk to a variety of neighborhoods (including Barracks Row, Eastern Market, Pennsylvania Ave, Lincoln Park and more) that offer shops, restaurants, and services. If you love to walk, take a leisurely stroll through the historic houses and gardens of East Capitol Street and arrive at the doorstep of the Capitol. We also have bicycles for you to use-- a fun and free way to tour the city, if you are so inclined!??Step outside to stroll the quiet, charming, and safe neighborhood, or picnic on our large grassy yard amidst the scent of lilacs and forsythia. Explore the great neighborhood, which offers a wide-open tree-lined green space as well as an upscale restaurant and corner market that features Polyface Farms meats and more. Great restaurant options are everywhere-- and you can walk a few blocks to shop for groceries at Yes Organic Market and Eastern Market, plus full-size grocery store six blocks away. Take pleasure in the kind of neighborhood experience that Capitol Hill will offer at every turn.??The apartment has natural heart pine wood floors and bamboo floors, organic bedding, plant-filled windowsills, and complimentary natural bath products and organic pantry items. ??The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful at night. Adding to your comfort: organic cotton sheets, chlorine filtering shower head, organic cotton towels, yoga mats and instructional DVDs, and lots of leafy-green plants. You will breathe easy, stay healthy, and rest well here.??There's also the convenience of wireless internet access, unlimited local and long-distance calling, a flat-panel TV with cable and DVD player, a diverse selection of DVDs, and a washer/dryer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I've been working for 10 years at Library of Congress, and lived 20 years in DC area. I do great bike tours of Capitol Hill.

Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
DC is an amazing city with free cultural offerings everywhere!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This house is a rare find in DC: a corner property with no close neighbors on three sides, so lots of windows that are open to light and air, and surrounded by a large yard and patio. The enclosed yard has an organic garden-- help yourself to tomatoes and more while you stay.
