Capitol Hill townhome description

If you're looking for a larger house on the Hill for a comfortable rendezvous with family or friends, this is your spot. Our 1850 home has four bedrooms + two living rooms, and can accommodate 8 - 10 people. It's suitable for small children (toys, yard) as well as the older set (sightseeing, easy walks). The house is roomy by Capitol Hill standards (2,300 sf) and also private (we have a deep yard in the front and private patio in the back). This is our family home so it is fully stocked with everything you'd need for a home-like stay. We have parking, lots of sun and -- best of all -- we are four blocks from the U.S. Capitol, the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress, and we are a ten-minute walk from two Metro stops. Our home is 2 stories, plus a basement. It sleeps six to eight comfortably (two more could be accommodated in a pinch.) Our top floor has a large master bedroom with a king bed and an en-suite bathroom with a large shower; down the hall from the master bedroom are are three additional bedrooms; one has bunk beds and a trundle and thus can sleep up to three comfortably; another bedroom has a single bed with a pop-up trundle bed which enables the room to have either a twin bed or a king bed - two can sleep here comfortably. The final bedroom has a single bed and can sleep one. These bedrooms share sunny a hall bathroom that has a shower over tub arrangement. Down the stairs, on our first floor, we have a pull-out couch that can sleep another two, if needed. On the ground floor there is a formal parlor with a fireplace, a piano, perfect for quiet cocktails or hanging out. As you walk down the hall from the parlor there is a bathroom and a coat closet. Next there is a nice-sized dining room that can seat 10. Through the dining room is a large open kitchen that includes that opens onto a back family room that is enclosed by two sets of french doors overlooking the patio. The family room has lots of comfortable seating and is where kids and grown ups alike relaxing, playing and watching movies. Our favorite room in the summer is actually outside, in our back patio, which has a grill, lots of plants and an automatic awning for when it’s too sunny (or rainy!), and ample seating for summer parties. In the basement there is a washer and dryer; we have a parking spot available in the back of the house so you can avoid the expense of parking garages.

              Car: Not Necessary

              We are steps from some of the most interesting museums and government institutions in the country. There's literally something for everyone and every age and the best part is you don't need a car. One of our personal favorites is the US Capitol Building, which is four blocks away; there are free tours all day long and if you get tired, not problem, you can just take the rest of the tour the next day! The Library of Congress is another favorite - it's one of the prettiest buildings we have ever seen, like gorgeous palace. A few blocks from our house is Pennsylvania Avenue and 7th Street and the Eastern Market area -- all of them filled with small restaurants that are family friendly, cafes, bars and coffee places. We also have a number of parks where we often toss a ball around, run our dog and have a picnic.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: We came to DC from California a few years ago and fell in love with Capitol Hill.

              Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
              We fell in love with our house because it's a rambling, private and comfortable house on one of the most prominent streets in the country: East Capitol Street. We have a sunny, private patio out back where we love to have breakfast and dinner.

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              Not a lot of homes on Capitol Hill are sunny, but we are lucky to have lots of sunshine. In the morning we have coffee in the kitchen or out back, watching the cardinals and checking on our tomatoes and other plants. We can walk almost anywhere from our front door - to the Smithsonians, the subway, the bus, restaurants, parks, you name it!
