Property description

Read our reviews -- welcome to the best location in Washington, DC!

Capitol Escape is a well-appointed, one-bedroom English Basement apartment on the most famous street in DC’s historic Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Ideally situated for work or play, Capitol Escape is a few short blocks from the US Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress and House and Senate office buildings. Catch the bus right outside your door or walk three blocks to Eastern Market Metro Station for access to all of the sights and sounds of the Nation’s capital.

Capitol Escape includes all of the amenities you would expect, and then some: full kitchen, coffee maker with coffee, washer/dryer, 32” HDTV with DVD player and cable, free WiFi, queen bed with 650-thread count linens and down comforter, iPod/iPhone compatible clock radio, and Bliss™ bath products.

With more than 30 restaurants, bars and coffee shops a short walk away, you’ll never eat at the same place twice. Or pick up fresh, locally-sourced ingredients for the perfect dinner in from from nearby Eastern Market (which expands on weekends into a fantastic outdoor market featuring antiques, jewelry, art, farm-fresh produce, etc).

The apartment is perfect for 2, but can accommodate a family of 4 with an air mattress that we provide. Take the Metro or a short cab ride from Reagan National Airport. If you’re on Amtrak, Union Station is less than one mile away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have lived on the Hill for 17 years and worked in and out of government. We are proud parents, occasional foodies, and supporters of local artists. We always dreamed of owning a house on East Capitol Street and -- bonus! -- ours came with a one bedroom apartment.

Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill, Washington, DC, USA:
We moved to Capitol Hill 17 years ago and never left. The Hill has a unique combination of history, walkability and a genuine neighborhood feel -- all within steps of the US Capitol. When we finally had the opportunity to buy a house on the street that is literally at the heart of the Hill, we jumped. Come see why! We may even let you in on a few of our favorite local haunts...

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
East Capitol Street is one of DC's most historic avenues; it literally is the north-south dividing line and runs directly into the US Capitol. Houses on East Capitol rarely come on the market; we waited 17 years for this one!
