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.

Lovely Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

The moment I walked in the home I loved the historic interior. There was 8 of us (4 couples). The backyard was wonderful as that is where we spent most of our time. We were only in the house to cook and sleep. The location was great. I think I misunderstood Chantal regarding the sleeping arrangements as it did not accommodate 4 couples comfortably. Other than that it was a great time. Chantal was a great hostess and I really enjoyed visiting with her and her husband. Thank you Chantal!

Beautiful Historic Gem, Luscious Backyard with Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this house. Our son was graduating from Georgetown and his apartment was actually 4 blocks from this property, who knew! Our family group of 6 included my 84 year old mother and my 11 month old granddaughter. This house was as comfortable as it was beautiful down to every detail. The furniture and the décor was outstanding and I wish my kitchen cabinets were as beautifully organized as these were. The back yard is surrounded by a luscious garden with comfortable lounge chairs and lovely deck for eating outside. The family room downstairs is a great hangout room and it was perfect for the baby to crawl around in and of course we were on the couch watching the Capitols play in the Hockey division championships. On our last night, I sat in my Pajamas with my son on the front steps of this beautiful row house, talking almost until the sun came up - It was like being in a movie. I felt like I lived there. Also, Trader Joes is literally 2 blocks away and it's about a 15 minute walk to the Capitol. Chantal and Nat are wonderful. I wish I owned this house.

loved, loved, loved, it.

Beautiful and comfortable home in very central part of Capital Hill

  • 5 of 5

We were three adults and two children enjoying all that DC has to offer. Our hosts were gracious and accommodating. The property couldn’t be more beautiful and is clearly restored with love.

The location made it easy for us to see anything we wanted to with minimal travel time. The kitchen and accommodations also made it easy for us to cook in and enjoy family time after a long day of seeing the sights.

We thoroughly enjoyed and plan to return again.

Historic charm right in the middle of everything!

  • 5 of 5

LOVE LOVE LOVE this house and location. It feels so quaint and cozy, awesome back porch with tons of privacy but then when you walk out the front, you are two blocks away from grocery, amazing restaurants, and the Metro! The Smithsonian mall is only 4 stops once you are on the metro. Super easy, convenient, and a gorgeous home with so much detail and ALL the amenities of home. We actually got to meet our hosts and they are a lovely couple! 5 starts and no doubt next time I am in DC, this is what we will book.
