About the Property

Sleeps 4, Fully-Furnished Apt, Close To Capitol, Metro And Smithsonian

Renovated in 2015 and beautifully decorated, this separate entrance carriage house has hardwood floors, high ceilings and everything you’ll need for your stay on the Hill. The bedroom has a four-posted queen-size bed, dresser, marble vanity and a cozy armchair. The French doors open onto a secret garden, the perfect place to enjoy breakfast. The bathroom is done in creamy Travertine with a large tiled shower. The great room has a day bed with a hidden pull-out trundle bed, two arm chairs, a ladder bar and a flat screen TV, and a multi-function antique table: Tucked into an alcove it’s the ideal space to eat a sandwich, work on your laptop or charge your electronics. At mealtime pull it away from the wall and pop up the sides for a table that seats six. Let us know how many bistro dining chairs you’ll need. Along the back wall the fully-outfitted kitchen has a full-size, 4 burner stove, sink, and 5 ft. refrigerator. Off-street parking for one car is included.

Car: Not Necessary

The carriage house is located only a few blocks to the east of the U.S. Capitol building. You could spend all your time in our neighborhood -- Capitol Hill -- eating, window shopping, poking into galleries and exploring. But the National Mall parkland, Smithsonian museums and national monuments are just a stone's throw away. You can't be better situated to explore all that DC has to offer.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1971

About: The Kelly family is the second family to live in the main house, which was built in 1876 by Maj. Samuel Walker for his family.

Why Stanton Park, Washington, DC, USA:
One of the premier properties on Capitol Hill, the carriage house, the stable and the east side of this Victorian house were completed in 1876. By 1886, Maj. Samuel Walker had more money and ten children so he added the west side of the house, the third floor and the porches in the style of Charles Eastlake, the English architect who simplified Victorian architecture and flattened its rounded gingerbread. All of the first floor ceilings—except the hall—are tin and so is a bedroom ceiling on the second floor.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
One of the great pleasures of the main house is that it remains much as it was when first built. Modernizing was done slowly, with care and caution. On the chance that electricity was just a fad, Major Walker only electrified every other arm of the chandeliers in the living room and the study and left the others as gas jets. The gaslights still work--and so does the electricity.
