Capitol Hill house description

This house has been operated by the owner as a Bed and Breakfast for the past ten years. Because of that, the home is particularly geared to serving our guests. The same owner has decided to turn the home into a vacation rental and host one family at a time. The home was actually built in 2004, so it is fairly new construction which means it has all the modern conveniences of 2014. BUT - the decor is purely traditional. It is a large property with four separate bedrooms with their own private bathroom. The kitchen is gourmet and has an 8' x 5' island perfect for family gatherings and cooking together. Eclectic decor and everything is here for your family to enjoy. Stained glass, 10' ceilings, 2 back porches, large courtyard, charming back garden and roof deck - all make this home one of the grandest on Capitol Hill. We no longer offer this property as an event space. If you do plan to invite friends or relatives to visit during your stay, please tell us .
