Property description

If my 2nd Story is booked, please try my first floor unit: 357360, I have another great space there! City living and an organic environment make this apartment the perfect experience—right in the historic district of Capitol Hill, in the prestigious Lincoln Park neighborhood, a short walk or bike to everything! This charming 1912 corner row house is a historic renovated corner barbershop, with a private entrance, 900 square feet of sunny living space with high ceilings, full sunlight through nine large windows that face east, south and west.??The apartment has all bamboo floors; new kitchen with stainless appliances, recycled-paper countertops, and cabinets made of local wood; big bath with tumbled marble tile and new sink, toilet and tub/shower, extra-capacity front loading washer-dryer; a large private bluestone patio with eating area; organic herb garden outside your front door; organic vegetable garden (help yourself) next to patio; a shed with 4 bikes; organic bedding; plant-filled windowsills; complimentary natural bath products and organic pantry items. ??There is a bus stop on the block, and it is a ten-minute walk to the orange-line metro at Eastern Market and then just one stop to the Capitol and the beginning of the Smithsonian Mall. Take a ten to twenty minute walk to a variety of neighborhoods (including Barracks Row, Eastern Market, Pennsylvania Ave, Lincoln Park and more) that offer shops, restaurants, and services. If you love to walk, take a leisurely stroll through the historic houses and gardens of East Capitol Street and arrive at the doorstep of the Capitol. We also have bicycles for you to use-- a fun and free way to tour the city, if you are so inclined!??Step outside to stroll the quiet, charming, and safe neighborhood, or picnic on our large grassy yard amidst the scent of lilacs and forsythia. Explore the great neighborhood, which offers a wide-open tree-lined green space as well as an upscale restaurant and corner market that features Polyface Farms meats and more. Great restaurant options are everywhere-- and you can walk a few blocks to shop for groceries at Yes Organic Market and Eastern Market, plus full-size grocery store six blocks away. Take pleasure in the kind of neighborhood experience that Capitol Hill will offer at every turn.??The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful at night. Adding to your comfort: yoga mat and instructional DVDs, organic cotton sheets, a special shower head to filter out the chlorine, organic cotton towels, a filtered water pitcher for pure drinking water, and leafy-green plants to naturally cleanse toxins from the air. You will breathe easy, stay healthy, and rest well here.??There's also the convenience of wireless internet access, a printer/scanner/copier, unlimited local and long-distance calling, a flat-panel TV with cable and DVD player, and a diverse selection of DVDs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I've lived for 20 years in DC area, and for 8 on Capitol Hill. I worked at the Library of Congress (9 years) and other government and non-profit arts organizations. I love all the free arts and culture in DC! I'm happy to offer bike tours of Capitol Hill.

Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
This house (walking distance to tourist spots and more) is a rare find in DC: a corner property with no abutting houses on three sides, so lots of windows that are open to light and air, and surrounded by a large yard and patio. The enclosed yard has an organic garden-- help yourself to all kinds of herbs and more while you stay. Bikes, parking, lots of closet space, washer-dryer, and walking distance to so much to do and see.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Large gorgeous patio for grilling (gas grill) and eating outside; safe well-lighted neighborhood; strolling to parks, restaurants and the National Mall; high ceilings; big windows; lots of flowering trees and great gardens.
