              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: We have lived on Capitol Hill with our two children for over 10 years and would love to share the experience with travelers by renting out our home while we're gone. We live nearby in Annapolis in summer and are always available should you need anything.

              Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
              Our home is the perfect home base for exploring Washington DC. Our home is unique on Capitol Hill in that it is south-facing and a stand-alone house, which means lots of sunshine and no sharing of walls with neighbors, making for a much quieter stay. The backyard is wonderfully private - the perfect place to recover after a big day of sightseeing. The historic nature of our 1890s home with modern amenities will add a new dimension to your vacation, giving you a taste of city living in absolute comfort.

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              You will love the easy walk to all the restaurants, National Mall and Metro, and being able to come home to your oasis in the city and watch the goldfish swim around in the backyard pond from the comfort of the kitchen.
