About the property

1860 Row House Steps From The Capitol

At the heart of historic Eastern Market, is a rowhouse that was on the Historic Restoration Home Tour just waiting for you and your family! One of the few rowhouses that have been completely modernized while still maintaining the old Federal charm, it will be comfortable and exactly what you are looking for as you tour the Nations Capitol. Steps away from the Metro, Barracks Row shopping and eating, Nationals Stadium and the Capitol itself, this location cannot be beat! Did we also mention we have a backyard? Most houses do not on the hill large enough for outdoor bbq-ing. So grab your groceries for the week down the street at the two grocery stores (Safeway and Harris Teeter) and save some money while you are here. We also have an alarm system and handyman available 24/7 should you need assistance.

Carefree Stay in DC

  • 5 of 5

Nestled in a quaint and historic neighborhood, our group of ten loved this house and proximity to the Metro as well as Trader Joes! The owners are friendly and accommodating. Overall, this was a wonderful Washington experience and the house was a highlight.

Great house! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 recently stayed at this wonderful house. We loved staying in the Eastern Market area of Washington, D.C. because of the warm, home-like feel of the neighborhood (Trader Joe's is nearby). With a short 5-6 block walk you're at the Metro station. The home wonderfully accommodated us and was our respite after a long day of sightseeing. The kitchen was well appointed, the bedrooms were comfortable and we enjoyed watching movies in the downstairs living room! Chantal was attentive and quickly available to answer any questions or concerns. We would stay at this home again!

Great Eastern Market Location!

  • 5 of 5

The Eastern Market is ranked in the top 10 neighborhoods in the country! It has everything you need within walking distance including the National Mall. The location is perfect for a D.C. trip. The row home was well kept and provided us everything we needed for our family vacation. I would definitely recommend this home for anyone that is looking to discover D.C. and wants a location that is conducive to seeing all of the sights!
