Welcome to Unit 202 at Seaton Condominium. This unit boasts what many newer buildings simply can't: a spacious layout, tons of windows for natural light, and that special DC charm. This two-bedroom unit wears its size impeccably well with wonderfully sized bedrooms and a living area with the trifecta of a full-sized kitchen, dining room, and living room. The primary bedroom is fit for a king - literally - throw a king in there, and you'll still have room for a desk, Peloton, and/or reading chair. The en suite bath provides you with a spa-like oasis and the walk-in closet fitted with Elfa shelving rounds out the comforts of living. The second room is perfect for a bedroom, office, gym, or combination of the three. What the current owners specifically love about the unit is the charm - from the hardwood floors to the exposed brick, and the lovely view of tree-lined Seaton Pl gives this unit a classic Bloomingdale vibe. However, don't sleep on the modern amenities like the new HVAC system, in-unit laundry, granite countertops, recessed lights, and a lovely stainless steel appliance package. If the fantastic unit in a small, tight-knit community wasn't enough, there is so much to explore in the neighborhood. Some favorites include Red Hen, Boundary Stone, Bacio Pizzeria, Showtime Lounge, Etabli, Big Bear Cafe, and much more. Need to make it elsewhere around the city? Hop on the metro (only 10 minutes away) or grab one of the many bus lines outside the front door. Pet friendly!

Eckington is a neighborhood in Northeast Washington, D.C., located south of the Prospect Hill and Glenwood Cemeteries. Eckington is less than one mile southeast of Howard University and exactly one mile north of the United States Capitol. Eckington is also the home of the District of Columbia office of Sirius XM Radio. The closest metro stations serving Eckington are NoMa–Gallaudet Station, located south of Eckington, and Rhode Island Avenue–Brentwood Station, located northeast of Eckington.

The land which became Eckington was the country home of Joseph Gales, Jr., owner of the National Intelligencer newspaper and Mayor of Washington from 1827 to 1830. Gales bought the Northeast tract in 1815, and in 1830 erected a two-story house on the hilltop, about where Third and U Streets intersect today. Gales named his estate Eckington after The Village in England in which he was born. In 1887, Eckington was bought by George Truesdell and his wife Frances, who subdivided the property, improved it substantially for habitation, sold lots, and built several houses. He laid down water and sewer pipes, paved streets in asphalt and concrete, and erected a stand pipe near the old Gales house. Truesdell erected five “pretty cottages” which, according to an 1888 newspaper account, were “all fitted up as city houses,” with steam heat and hot and cold running water. Eckington was wired for electricity in 1889, two years before electricity was installed in the White House.

Although the streetcar had been a community center for both Eckington and Bloomingdale, the adjacent neighborhood to the west, after the streetcar line was removed in the 1950s North Capitol Street was dug into a trench to facilitate high-speed, high-volume traffic. The entrenched highway created a stark separation between Eckington from Bloomingdale. With this division along with the railroad tracks on its east, gives Eckington its relatively isolated quality.
