Capitol Hill house description

This stately 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home is perfectly situated on one of the nicest blocks in Washington DC’s fabulous Capitol Hill neighborhood. It sleeps six very comfortably with a king sized bed and two queen sized beds and sleeps eight with a queen sized aerobed that can be placed anywhere. It includes off-street parking in a private driveway next to the house, an extremely rare feature in this neighborhood.

Although this is a new listing, the English basement apartment in this home has been a vacation rental for over one year. Please reference property #479521 for our great feedback and traveler reviews. Please also note that the interior photos reflect the occupancy of the current tenant and will be updated as soon as possible.

This luxurious, owner-renovated residence is perfect for both vacation rentals and temporary executive housing. The location is literally steps from the Capitol South metro station, one block from the House of Representatives office buildings and two blocks from the U.S. Capitol. It is a perfect place for a family or an executive, lobbyist or politician who prefers immediate access to the Capitol, the House Office buildings, the Capitol Hill Club, the National Republican Club of Capitol Hill or the Democratic National Committee headquarters. Four current congressmen live on this very same block.

The fully renovated home combines luxurious, high-end finishes with historic architectural features and provides the very best of Capitol Hill and Washington DC right outside the door It is walking distance to the U.S. Capitol, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, the National Mall's monuments, museums and memorials, Metro (orange and blue lines), dozens of restaurants, bars and shops along Pennsylvania Avenue, Union Station, the historic Eastern Market, the Barracks Row district of even more restaurants, bars and shops, the Washington Nationals baseball stadium, many beautiful parks and green spaces and Interstate 395.

The home was built in 1910 and includes original woodwork in beautiful condition, including oak floors throughout the home, baseboards, window trim, door trim and archways.

An iron gate opens from the sidewalk onto a long walkway that leads through a landscaped front yard and up several steps to the front door which opens into an extremely large and sunlight filled living room (approx. 27' by 16') highlighted by a beautiful bay window and with ample space for two separate seating areas. A skylight directly above the original staircase adds even more light to the room.

The dining room (approx. 16' by 11') is accented by a unique vintage light fixture and a classic wood table with period legs and inlay wood border. Leather chairs provide seating for six; however, the table can be extended to allow for dinners of up to 10 seated guests. The dining room can be separated from the living room with two large oak-panel pocket doors. Adding to the beauty of the room is a tin ceiling and a built-in buffet from the early 1900's with wood and leaded glass doors.

A half bathroom with window and custom tile work is located between the dining room and the kitchen.

The gourmet kitchen is perfect for both serious and casual cooking. It features custom built solid wood cabinetry providing extensive storage space, gorgeous green granite countertops, a tin ceiling, undercabinet lighting and two large windows. The stainless steel appliances include a Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer with ice maker, GE Monogram wine refrigerator with storage for 28 bottles, Thermador electric cooktop and wall oven, Bosch dishwasher and Sharp microwave.

A glass door in the kitchen opens onto a large covered porch which steps down into a shady, tree lined, brick oasis of a backyard with amazing outdoor privacy and an outdoor table and chair set.

A fabulous master suite highlights the upper level of the home. It consists of a large bedroom (16' by 16'), marble en suite bathroom and a large closet. The bedroom has four large windows, a king sized bed with top-of-the-line memory foam pillow top mattress and a Casablanca ceiling fan. The master bath includes sparkling Waterworks fixtures, a walk-in shower with frameless glass door and gorgeous marble flooring. The custom closet includes built-in shelving and plenty of hanging space.

The second bedroom (approx. 12' by 10') has a large window and clothes closet and a queen sized bed. The third bedroom (approx. 12' by 12') includes two corner windows, a Casablanca ceiling fan and a lovely Storehouse furniture set including a dresser, armoire and a nearly new queen sized pillowtop mattress.

The hallway bathroom has a restored bathtub and new period-style tile and fixtures. A Bosch washer and dryer are conveniently located in an upstairs closet along with laundry detergent and fabric softener.

                          Year Purchased: 2002

                          About: I purchased this property to be my primary residence in Washington DC. I lovingly and professionally restored this property to bring out the charm of this gorgeous historic rowhouse while including modern 21st century luxury features. I lived in this exact same apartment for several years until moving out of town recently.

                          Why Capitol Hill:
                          The location is unbeatable and the block is gorgeous! I wanted something that was quintessentially Capitol Hill, in the heart of this historic neighborhood and on a tree-lined block with other beautiful homes.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Quite simply, the access from this house is too good to be true! I can easily walk to dozens of restaurants, bars and shops as well as many of the nation's finest monuments, museums and memorials. The Capital South Metro station is half a block away and can have me in most other parts of DC within 15-20 minutes or at the airport (DCA) in 30 minutes. When I need to drive, the house is just three blocks from the freeway (I-395).
