Capitol Hill house description

Large, two story, historic row house. This is the perfect place for your family and friends to come home to after a long day of touring DC. Spacious 2500 sf of indoor living space with private enclosed courtyard patio and large swimming pool and unusually large garden and patio where everyone can spread out. Four (4) large bedrooms - each with a queen bed. Additional futon and crib available. Expansive double living room with two fireplaces opens onto a separate dining room with table for 10. Hardwood floors throughout the home. Eclectic furnishings - modern and antique - with interesting decorative pieces the owner has collected from around the world. Large kitchen complete with everything you need to cook for a large group. Plenty of counterspace and room for several cooks in this kitchen! Laundry. Parking permits available. Very safe neighborhood with many congressmen and senators living on the block.

The four bedrooms and three bathrooms are on the second floor. A half bath is on the first floor. Hairdryers, towels, sheets, soaps, shampoo, conditioner, and paper products are all provided. Televisions in each bedroom.

Large outdoor entertaining space with grill and seating for 12+. Unusually large pool for a home in the heart of DC. Floats and towels on site. Pool is surrounded by lush gardens full of flowers and plantings.

535 4th St SE is a ten minute walk to three metro stations. Eastern Market and Capitol South are on the orange and blue line and Navy Yard is on the green line. Ten minute walk to the Nationals' baseball stadium. Five minute walk to at least 40 restaurants on the very trendy 8th Street. Ten minute walk to the Capitol building. Visitors may walk to the Smithsonian museums from this location - about 20 minute to Air and Space museum.

Extremely safe area in the midst of the neighborhood that is home to many congressmen and government leaders. Great place to walk around and look at historic homes with their quaint gardens.

Two wonderful children's parks are within one block. Public tennis courts are one block away. Waterfront park is closeby with free evening entertainment during the summer months. A state-of-the-art gym is on the next block and temporary access can be arranged.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Owners have lived in Washington DC for over twenty years and work at NASA. They live next door to the property so are available to assist you in anyway necessary.

                      Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
                      Big, well maintained, convenient, safe neighborhood, walk to many sites. Owners will take great care of you during your stay!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Capitol Hill is an absolutely wonderful place to live. We love the history of the homes nearby and learning what famous people have lived in them, walking by the Library of Congress, Supreme Court, and the Capitol at night, walking to nearby first rate restaurants, and watching the Marine Corps Band and Honor Guard's Tattoo on Friday nights, Recently the city has opened a beautiful new park just down the street on the waterfront. There's a great sidewalk level fountain for the kids to play in, free outdoor/lawn movies and music on summer evenings. The entire Capitol Hill area has undergone an incredible revitalization within the past ten years and many young families with small children fill the many parks. Most of my guests really enjoy Eastern Market - because on weekends you can find great fresh foods, antiques, international craft items, art and lots of jewelry. It is superbusy - very fun place to spend time with friends.
