About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6 Full House. Lovely Back Patio And Garden

Come to DC enjoy it all in style. Stay within walking distance to all the major attractions but be in the heart of the Village of Capitol Hill.

Perfectly located a block from the Eastern Market Metro, a block from the Eastern Market and steps to all the Great Restaurants of 8th Street!

You will love being able to walk the 10 minutes to the U. S Capitol, the House and Senate Office buildings and all the Mall then come then come back to a quiet neighborhood home and relax in the rear patio.

Fully furnished, spacious executive home with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the 2nd floor. En-suite Master bedroom suite has large closets and spacious walk in shower. There are two more bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other a full bed and an additional full bath. A full size front loading washer and dryer is up there as well.

Downstairs the Kitchen is outfitted with Amish made cabinetry and granite counter tops. My home is decorated with design and comfort in mind throughout.

Open plan Dining Room/Living room lead to French doors that open to a large back patio and garden with a Grill, perfect for outdoor relaxing.

8 blocks or less from the US Capitol, Senate office buildings, Library of Congress and the Supreme Court. Easy walk to the Mall, the Monuments and the Smithsonian museums. Pentagon, Arlington, Dupont Circle and Georgetown are a quick and easy commute via Metro or the incredibly popular BikeShare program!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: A long-time DC and Hill resident, recently retired, about to take time out and travel. Can't part with my DC home but willing to share it with guests so they can appreciate the Hill as I do. Ask me about my favorite places ...besides the 'Must See's'. The Peacock Room, Yard's Park, 8th & I, The Gargoyle Tour at the National Cathedral ...

Why the Owner Chose Southeast Washington, Washington, DC, USA:
This is a 'newer' property, built in the 60's (that would be the 1960's not 1860's with great design bones. For me it was all about the location but walking in and seeing the sun streaming thru the east facing French doors to the back garden... I was hooked at first sight.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Can not possibly be a more convenient location. An easy walk down 'The Hill' (and Metro back UP) to spend the day at the museums and sights. Visit at the Nations Capitol and all the world class museums then return back to a village setting with restaurants and small town convenience. Such a great neighborhood, Eastern Market for old fashioned Merchant Stall shopping (Butcher, Bakery, Cheese Monger, Seafood, Pasta vendor, Vegetables), an Organic Supermarket 2 blocks South ('Yes' Organics). Walk to either of 2 artisan coffee shops or a Starbucks or even a Dunkin Donuts a block away. The true 'Heart' of our community is the weekly Arts/Crafts and Farmers Market on Sat & Sun. Everyone at least walks thru the stalls to see what the world has on offering and to catch up with the neighbors over coffee and fresh donuts or the famous Blueberry Pancakes at the Market Lunch in Eastern Market.. be adventurous.. try the Scrapple! There are over 2 dozen places to eat on the blocks of Pennsylvania Ave and on Barracks Row, Gastro Pubs, Sports Bars, Restaurants, Oyster Houses, gelatto, cupcakes, sidewalk cafe, rooftop beer gardens you won't be able to sample them all in one visit. But best of all, every time you come 'Home' you get to see the Capitol Dome just a few blocks away letting you know you are truly in DC.
