3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6 Full House. Lovely Back Patio And Garden
A long-time DC and Hill resident, recently retired, about to take time out and travel. Can't part with my DC home but willing to share it with guests so they can appreciate the Hill as I do. Ask me about my favorite places ...besides the 'Must See's'. The Peacock Room, Yard's Park, 8th & I, The Gargoyle Tour at the National Cathedral ...
Bob purchased this Townhouse in 2001
Why Bob chose Southeast Washington
This is a 'newer' property, built in the 60's (that would be the 1960's not 1860's with great design bones. For me it was all about the location but walking in and seeing the sun streaming thru the east facing French doors to the back garden... I was hooked at first sight.
What makes this Townhouse unique
Can not possibly be a more convenient location. An easy walk down 'The Hill' (and Metro back UP) to spend the day at the museums and sights. Visit at the Nations Capitol and all the world class museums then return back to a village setting with restaurants and small town convenience. Such a great neighborhood, Eastern Market for old fashioned Merchant Stall shopping (Butcher, Bakery, Cheese Monger, Seafood, Pasta vendor, Vegetables), an Organic Supermarket 2 blocks South ('Yes' Organics). Walk to either of 2 artisan coffee shops or a Starbucks or even a Dunkin Donuts a block away. The true 'Heart' of our community is the weekly Arts/Crafts and Farmers Market on Sat & Sun. Everyone at least walks thru the stalls to see what the world has on offering and to catch up with the neighbors over coffee and fresh donuts or the famous Blueberry Pancakes at the Market Lunch in Eastern Market.. be adventurous.. try the Scrapple! There are over 2 dozen places to eat on the blocks of Pennsylvania Ave and on Barracks Row, Gastro Pubs, Sports Bars, Restaurants, Oyster Houses, gelatto, cupcakes, sidewalk cafe, rooftop beer gardens you won't be able to sample them all in one visit. But best of all, every time you come 'Home' you get to see the Capitol Dome just a few blocks away letting you know you are truly in DC.

Great property. Would definitely recommend it to others
Beautiful House; Stellar Location
Bob’s house gives a visitor the chance to briefly experience Capital Hill life as a “temporary native.” The furnishings are beautiful, the air conditioning keeps all rooms comfortable, and the kitchen is a dream to cook in. Next time we will allow more time “at home” to enjoy both the house and the neighborhood. Eastern Market is not to be missed and the Metro station makes everything else in town easy to reach. Bob is a wonderful host; walked us through the access drill for TV viewing and was very accommodating when our flight time got pushed back by 6 hours. Lots of little touches make this feel like home—wastebaskets in each room, nightstands by the beds, excellent lighting, tables at base and top of stairs to keep a traveler organized. The Washington Post is delivered daily which is a first for us in a rental house. Be sure to check the desk in the living room for Metro cards and passes to Capitol tours. We missed these until too late. Highly recommend this rental!
Home away from home
Beautiful home and great location. Definitely recommend this property for anyone visiting DC.
Lovely home, well equipped. Fantastic location
Thanks for the kind words - and really glad to hear that you all had such a good time
Eastern Market VRBO just great!
Communication with Bob up to and during our stay was super! Very thorough about instructions, and timely about answering questions I had. Highly recommend this location, and beautiful spacious home! A block from Eastern Market, and less than one mile (we walked every day) from the US Capital. Close to restaurants and shopping! A great neighborhood! Thank you, Bob!
It is great hearing that everything went well/ And that you walked places, DC is such a walkable city especially here at the core.
Beautiful home, Great location.
We were visiting my son stationed at the Marine Barracks. The home was in walking distance to the barracks and nearby restaurants. Also very close to the Metro and grocery stores
Home has all the extras I didn’t have to pack or go buy; dish liquid, paper towels, washing detergent, soap, shampoo and also extra condiments and spices for cooking.
Bob is very accommodating and helpful when needed.
Would highly recommend this home.
it is great that we could be part of your family gathering like this.. Even though there are places nearby to get stuff why waste time worrying about some of those basics...
Minutes from both local and National landmarks. Base your visit in a warm and vibrant neighborhood location yet be only a few minutes walk to the Capitol and the National Mall. There are numerous grocery stores, restaurants and shopping within walking distance. The area is indeed a 'Walkers Paradise" and even has two racks of bright red CitiBike public bicycles a block from the door. This is a comfortable and well-appointed family friendly historic house that even has a back patio and grill.
