WASHINGTON DC

This gem proves that they just don't make them like they used to. Step back in time and cherish many fine details a classic Capitol Hill home is meant to boast, with original hardwood floors, sliding pocket doors, five-panel doors, transom windows, pine and chestnut woodwork, and more timeless details. The stately bedrooms offer tons of space, drenched with tons of natural light seeping through the immaculate sash windows. The basement has tons of space to make your own, whether for relaxing, working, or guests, along with a large bathroom and laundry room. The nods to the classics are clear, but the intertwining of some modern touches is just pure genius. Look closely at the glass cabinets and then look back into the dining room - the same diamond pattern was used to infuse the new with the old. Another eye-catching feature is the Humphrey radiant fireplace appliance - an absolute treasure and a piece of art. If you've had enough time inside, check out the many outdoor space offerings. Whether gardening in the front, grilling in the back or catching up on some reading on either of the back porches (one is even a screened sleeping porch), you're sure to enjoy yourself. The location? Unbeatable. Steps from Stanton park, quick access to Junction Bistro, Union Station (metro and regional train), Nostra Cucina, Schneider's & Union Pub.. Everything H Street has to offer is a quick walk North where you'll find Giant, Whole Foods, Cane, Solid State Books and so much more. Want to go further? Rear access parking means you can go anywhere!

Capitol Hill is one of the city’s most popular places to live, with 19th-century rowhouses and a market plus a vibrant dining and nightlife scene. Politicos, young staffers and tourists alike head to the neighborhood both for its government buildings like the U.S. Capitol and the Supreme Court and the surrounding historic, walkable, restaurant-filled blocks. Tour the U.S. Capitol via its impressive visitors center; guides lead small groups under the intricately painted, 180-plus-foot dome and past the dimly lit Old Supreme Court Chamber. You’ll need a reservation for the tour or to visit Congress or the Senate (when they are in session); for the latter, just contact your senator or house representative. Nearby, the Library of Congress’ impressive 1897 Thomas Jefferson building is open for tours that reveal its Italian-Renaissance style architecture and gilt murals plus the stunning, circular main reading room with its 160-foot-high ceiling. Other attractions include the Folger Shakespeare Library (the world’s largest collection of the author’s timeless works), and the glassed-in U.S. Botanic Garden at the base of Capitol Hill, which holds palms, ferns and orchids and provides a peaceful escape.

 

Nineteenth and early 20th-century rowhouses (think turrets, stained glass and ironwork) lead to throwback commercial zones. Eastern Market, an 1873 redbrick building houses grocers, bakers and pasta makers inside every day plus a lively weekend bazaar with produce, crafts and antiques. The nearby micro-neighborhood of Barracks Row centers on 8th Street SE, where vintage storefronts hold oyster houses, pubby bars and foodie-focused restaurants. Closer to the Capitol, Massachusetts Avenue NE has multiple restaurants and longtime watering holes.
