The home was built in 1910 and includes original woodwork in beautiful condition, including oak floors throughout the home, baseboards, window trim, door trim and archways.
An iron gate opens from the sidewalk onto a long walkway that leads through a landscaped front yard and up several steps to the front door which opens into an extremely large and sunlight filled living room (approx. 27' by 16') highlighted by a beautiful bay window and with ample space for two separate seating areas. A skylight directly above the original staircase adds even more light to the room.
The dining room (approx. 16' by 11') is accented by a unique vintage light fixture and a classic wood table with period legs and inlay wood border. Leather chairs provide seating for six; however, the table can be extended to allow for dinners of up to 10 seated guests. The dining room can be separated from the living room with two large oak-panel pocket doors. Adding to the beauty of the room is a tin ceiling and a built-in buffet from the early 1900's with wood and leaded glass doors.
A half bathroom with window and custom tile work is located between the dining room and the kitchen.
The gourmet kitchen is perfect for both serious and casual cooking. It features custom built solid wood cabinetry providing extensive storage space, gorgeous green granite countertops, a tin ceiling, undercabinet lighting and two large windows. The stainless steel appliances include a Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer with ice maker, GE Monogram wine refrigerator with storage for 28 bottles, Thermador electric cooktop and wall oven, Bosch dishwasher and Sharp microwave.
A glass door in the kitchen opens onto a large covered porch which steps down into a shady, tree lined, brick oasis of a backyard with amazing outdoor privacy and an outdoor table and chair set.
A fabulous master suite highlights the upper level of the home. It consists of a large bedroom (16' by 16'), marble en suite bathroom and a large closet. The bedroom has four large windows, a king sized bed with top-of-the-line memory foam pillow top mattress and a Casablanca ceiling fan.

The hallway bathroom has a restored bathtub and new period-style tile and fixtures. A Bosch washer and dryer are conveniently located in an upstairs closet along with laundry detergent and fabric softener.
I purchased this property to be my primary residence in Washington DC. I lovingly and professionally restored this property to bring out the charm of this gorgeous historic rowhouse while including modern 21st century luxury features. I lived in this exact same apartment for several years until moving out of town recently.
Bill Powers purchased this house in 2002
The location is unbeatable and the block is gorgeous! I wanted something that was quintessentially Capitol Hill, in the heart of this historic neighborhood and on a tree-lined block with other beautiful homes.
Quite simply, the access from this house is too good to be true! I can easily walk to dozens of restaurants, bars and shops as well as many of the nation's finest monuments, museums and memorials. The Capital South Metro station is half a block away and can have me in most other parts of DC within 15-20 minutes or at the airport (DCA) in 30 minutes. When I need to drive, the house is just three blocks from the freeway (I-395).
Perfect location and comfortable home. Easy walk to the Capitol, and less than two blocks to Capitol South Metro Station. Kitchen was perfect for cooking breakfasts and a couple of dinners. Private secure driveway was a real plus. Thanks for making our vacation to D.C. really great.
Charming house and very comfortable during a few cold days (-7c) in Jan. Could not believe the great location. Off street parking very convenient. Easily took care of 6 of us. We appreciated eating in style at the dining table. Bill was very responsive and although we had a few washing machine issues, everything was functional and we just took in the surrounding sights. I would recommend this property.
Location can't be beat. The reviews of the house were really wonderful. However, our experience was not quite as seamless. It took 24 hours to get toilet paper in the house (other than the minimal rolls left on the holders); the promised shower toiletries weren't provided; kitchen only had 2 wine glasses and 2 dish towels; I cut my foot on glass in the bedroom; the washer didn't work....
Eventually the manager was helpful but it took several days. He did comp us for the inconvenience so I felt it was fair, but it wasn't the great experience we were looking forward to.
5 Old Friends enjoyed a weekend reunion and was happy here. While interior decore was minimal, it was offset by exceptional location and cleanliness. Beds were extremely comfortable, Master Bath very good, and off street parking was a plus!
We can definitely rate five star for location. It is very easy to get most anywhere either by walking or metro. Even Uber rides are not expensive
However, would rate the house as a 3 to 4 .It is a large restored Federal style townhome. One can see a lot of thought was put into finishings.
When we arrived neither the dishwasher nor washing machine was working. The manager was responive but dishwasher was problematic and washer was never repaired. The house needs attention .... mildowed shower cutains, light bulbs missing, broken shades , and floor and furniture cleaning.
We used it for family vacation. The kitchen is not supplied for dinner needs ... missing bowls, serving dishes. .., Basically just dishes and silverware.
It could be real 5 star with some TLC!
This was a great location for a family of 5. Close to the Metro station and to the local grocery store (Harris Teeter), as well as within walking distance of the various sites on the Mall. There is also a great playground a very short walk away. Bill was very responsive and helpful (we had an issue with the washing machine and he let us use the one downstairs). Accommodations were very comfortable.
You will not find a better Capitol Hill location! The very best of Capitol Hill and Washington DC are located just outside the door! This apartment is literally steps from the Capitol South metro station, one block from the House of Representatives office buildings and two blocks from the U.S. Capitol!
It is walking distance to the U.S. Capitol, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, the National Mall and its monuments, museums and memorials, Metro (orange and blue lines), dozens of restaurants, bars and shops along Pennsylvania Avenue, Union Station, the historic Eastern Market, the Barracks Row district of even more restaurants, bars and shops, the Washington Nationals baseball stadium, many beautiful parks and green spaces and it also has easy access to and from Interstate 395.
