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.
