About the property

One bedroom English basement walking distance to Capitol

Light-filled English Basement one-bedroom apartment blocks from the Capitol and steps to historic Eastern Market, Eastern Market Metro, Barracks Row, and Lincoln Park. Easy access to public transportation, Capital Bikeshare, and much more.

Apartment features large living/dining room, fully-equipped kitchen with modern appliances, washer/dryer in unit, large bedroom with ample closet, and a small coat closet by the front door. Bedroom also has a large dresser and roll-away storage underneath the bed. If more than 2 people are staying, a queen-sized air mattress is available upon request for a small fee. Central air unit quietly provides both hot and cold air.

Don't miss the open air market at Eastern Market on the weekends, plus all of the Market's offerings from Tuesday through Sunday. Award-winning Barracks Row is just a couple blocks away as well featuring nationally-recognized restaurants and boutique shopping.

Also easy walking to the Capitol, Supreme Court, and Library of Congress, plus all the House and Senate buildings. Just a few blocks further- or a short metro ride- and you have all of the National Mall at your disposal, including the Smithsonian museums, National Portrait Gallery, and the monuments.

Please keep in mind that, since this is a basement unit, you will occasionally hear the friendly family upstairs and their friendly dog walking around (but not barking), and that they will occasionally hear you.

About Elby Godwin

I've lived on this block for over 10 years now, and also work in the neighborhood. On a daily basis, I enjoy the easy access to so many places that this location provides. I currently live just up the street from this property.

This property makes it easy to get just about anywhere in the area. You are steps to the Capitol, the House and Senate office buildings, the Library of Congress, Supreme Court, Union Station, Eastern Market, and Barracks Row, plus a metro stop at Eastern Market as well. This is a family-friendly neighborhood, and it's easy to see that many residents value the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Close to everything

The location is perfect. Easy walk to the Capital, and library of congress. Great places to eat in Eastern Market. The apartment was very clean and well stocked. The couch was a little uncomfortable but the bed made up for that. Over all a great place for a great price. We had a wonderful time.

Everything I expected

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had! Being from a much smaller town we were a little worried that we might have trouble finding our way or wind up in a part of town that made us nervous. Not so!! The area residents were friendly as they walked their dogs and people were always more than willing to help us. The apartment was clean and small but perfect for two and having a kitchen was a real saving feature since we cooked breakfast and supper everyday and only ate out for lunch.

The area really is close to mass transit. I understand that there is a bus stop really close but I never found it. The metro is only a few blocks away (Eastern Market Station) and getting from there to anywhere in town was pretty simple. I highly recommend exploring the circulator bus for seeing the monuments and museums around the mall. You can hop on and off at the different stops and only pay $1 every two hours although you do have to have a smarttrip card (like you use for the Metro rail). What an incredibly awesome trip we had!!

Thanks Elby, I always felt like you would help us if we needed it but everything at the apartment was perfect so I never felt the need to bother you (once I figured out how to work the TV, LOL).
