About the Property

5 BR, 5.5 Bath, Large. Four BR's are on the 2nd floor . One BR/bath lower level

This house has been operated by the owner as a Bed and Breakfast for the past ten years. Because of that, the home is particularly geared to serving our guests. The same owner has decided to turn the home into a vacation rental and host one family at a time. The home was actually built in 2004, so it is fairly new construction which means it has all the modern conveniences of 2017. BUT - the decor is purely traditional. It is a large property with five separate bedrooms with their own private bathroom. The kitchen is gourmet and has an 8' x 5' island perfect for family gatherings and cooking together. Eclectic decor and everything is here for your family to enjoy. Stained glass, 10' ceilings, 2 back porches, large courtyard, charming back garden and roof deck - all make this home one of the grandest on Capitol Hill. We no longer offer this property as an event space. Owner will be on the property during the Inauguration to assist guests. If you do plan to invite friends or relatives to visit during your stay, please tell us .

Capitol Hill is a residential neighborhood within steps of the Capitol and Supreme Court. The homes were built in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Almost all are row houses with 2-3 stories. Parking is typically on the street. The neighborhood has established trees and parks and there are many restaurants, markets, and nightlife nearby. It is home to many of the nation's congressional and governmental leaders.
