About the property

Best Possible Capitol Hill Location For Both Tourists And Executives

This stately 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home is perfectly situated on one of the nicest blocks in Washington DC’s fabulous Capitol Hill neighborhood. It sleeps six very comfortably with a king sized bed and two queen sized beds and sleeps eight with a queen sized aerobed that can be placed anywhere. It includes off-street parking in a private driveway next to the house, an extremely rare feature in this neighborhood.

This luxurious, owner-renovated residence is perfect for both vacation rentals and temporary executive housing. The location is literally steps from the Capitol South metro station, one block from the House of Representatives office buildings and two blocks from the U.S. Capitol. It is a perfect place for a family or an executive, lobbyist or politician who prefers immediate access to the Capitol, the House Office buildings, the Capitol Hill Club, the National Republican Club of Capitol Hill or the Democratic National Committee headquarters. Four current congressmen live on this very same block.

The fully renovated home combines luxurious, high-end finishes with historic architectural features and provides the very best of Capitol Hill and Washington DC right outside the door It is walking distance to the U.S. Capitol, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, the National Mall's monuments, museums and memorials, Metro (orange and blue lines), dozens of restaurants, bars and shops along Pennsylvania Avenue, Union Station, the historic Eastern Market, the Barracks Row district of even more restaurants, bars and shops, the Washington Nationals baseball stadium, many beautiful parks and green spaces and Interstate 395.

The home was built in 1910 and includes original woodwork in beautiful condition, including oak floors throughout the home, baseboards, window trim, door trim and archways.

An iron gate opens from the sidewalk onto a long walkway that leads through a landscaped front yard and up several steps to the front door which opens into an extremely large and sunlight filled living room (approx. 27' by 16') highlighted by a beautiful bay window and with ample space for two separate seating areas. A skylight directly above the original staircase adds even more light to the room.

The dining room (approx. 16' by 11') is accented by a unique vintage light fixture and a classic wood table with period legs and inlay wood border. Leather chairs provide seating for six; however, the table can be extended to allow for dinners of up to 10 seated guests. The dining room can be separated from the living room with two large oak-panel pocket doors. Adding to the beauty of the room is a tin ceiling and a built-in buffet from the early 1900's with wood and leaded glass doors.

A half bathroom with window and custom tile work is located between the dining room and the kitchen.

The gourmet kitchen is perfect for both serious and casual cooking. It features custom built solid wood cabinetry providing extensive storage space, gorgeous green granite countertops, a tin ceiling, undercabinet lighting and two large windows. The stainless steel appliances include a Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer with ice maker, GE Monogram wine refrigerator with storage for 28 bottles, Thermador electric cooktop and wall oven, Bosch dishwasher and Sharp microwave.

A glass door in the kitchen opens onto a large covered porch which steps down into a shady, tree lined, brick oasis of a backyard with amazing outdoor privacy and an outdoor table and chair set.

A fabulous master suite highlights the upper level of the home. It consists of a large bedroom (16' by 16'), marble en suite bathroom and a large closet. The bedroom has four large windows, a king sized bed with top-of-the-line memory foam pillow top mattress and a Casablanca ceiling fan. The master bath includes sparkling Waterworks fixtures, a walk-in shower with frameless glass door and gorgeous marble flooring. The custom closet includes built-in shelving and plenty of hanging space.

The second bedroom (approx. 12' by 10') has a large window and clothes closet and a queen sized bed. The third bedroom (approx. 12' by 12') includes two corner windows, a Casablanca ceiling fan and a lovely Storehouse furniture set including a dresser, armoire and a nearly new queen sized pillowtop mattress.

The hallway bathroom has a restored bathtub and new period-style tile and fixtures. A Bosch washer and dryer are conveniently located in an upstairs closet along with laundry detergent and fabric softener.

About Bill Powers

I purchased this property to be my primary residence in Washington DC. I lovingly and professionally restored this property to bring out the charm of this gorgeous historic rowhouse while including modern 21st century luxury features. I lived in this exact same apartment for several years until moving out of town recently.

Bill Powers purchased this house in 2002

Why Bill Powers chose Eastern Market

The location is unbeatable and the block is gorgeous! I wanted something that was quintessentially Capitol Hill, in the heart of this historic neighborhood and on a tree-lined block with other beautiful homes.

What makes this house unique

Quite simply, the access from this house is too good to be true! I can easily walk to dozens of restaurants, bars and shops as well as many of the nation's finest monuments, museums and memorials. The Capital South Metro station is half a block away and can have me in most other parts of DC within 15-20 minutes or at the airport (DCA) in 30 minutes. When I need to drive, the house is just three blocks from the freeway (I-395).

As the title says, you can’t beat to location of this space. Walking distance to the Capitol. You could probably hit the Cannon House with a three wood. Bull feathers, Tortilla Coast and Subway is roghtbaroung the corner. We hit Tortilla Coast a couple times..great Mexican food.

The home is old and a bit creepy but beds were very comfortable. Art lines the walls and it has A DRIVEWAY!! Very important in DC and rare in that neighborhood.

If you’re bringing you family to DC this is the place to use.

Great house..Great location....Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

It was very comfortable and a beautiful home. We all loved it. The only thing is it says it sleeps 8 and it can with the help of an air mattress. But there is no private room to put the air mattress in. We were a group of women so the master bedroom was large enough to have the air mattress on the floor there and one person slept on the couch.

Beautiful house in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend with our college age daughter and had a great time. All the rooms in the house were nice size, living area, dining room and kitchen w/ half bath on 1st floor, 3 BR and 2 full bath on 2nd fl. The house was very comfortable for us and had some beatifully restored features. A short walk to the Capitol building, took the tour which was very interesting, unfortunately we did it on a Saturday so nothing was going on as opposed to Mon - Fri. 15 minute walk to Nationals game and same to Union Station (Amtrak). Some nice restaurants found on Yelp and we ubered around for about $8.00 a ride. Would definitely return if our travels take us back to DC.

Spacious Comfortable and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We are two senior couples who spent 6 nights here and loved it. We don't think you can beat this location; we could walk to most of what we wanted to do and when we wanted the metro it was only a couple of blocks. The house is amazingly spacious and very well stocked - lots of glasses, plates, cups, bowls and serving pieces. Plenty of linens, blankets, pillows and towels. The living room set up is perfect for sitting and talking in the mornings and evenings, and much better and more comfortable than most rentals. This is very important to us and the owner hit a home run! Thank you Bill.

Very convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Nice place to stay. Best part is the location - convenient to highway, metro and walking.

House was 95% ready for occupancy. Owner allowed us to place our luggage several hours early. Back yard needs work. We would definitely stay again.

An amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in the Historical Capitol District which is close enough to walk to the Capitol and the Library of Congress (go see that amazing building) and yet the neighborhood felt safe, quiet and lovely. A real bonus is the driveway, the only one I saw around the neighborhood. We did use our car to go to Harris Tweeters market which has an underground parking garage. Main mode of transportation was the Metro and Uber. Metro station is an easy 5 min. walk away. Uber always arrived within 5 min. of calling them. The house itself was historic and interesting. It was clean, had comfy beds, had all the basics (coffee, paper products, shampoo,soap)and high-end appliances. Air-conditioning was efficient and appreciated when it was 93 degrees. It was always good to get "home" after a long day of standing and walking.

We were wishing there was some information about the area left there for renters. We found restaurants on the next block (1st Street) for a good dinner at Bullfeathers the first night. It would have been nice to have some recommendations for food markets, liquor store, restaurants in the neighborhood. We drove around and located things. Nice to have the car handy for that. All in all, I would certainly stay there again and we were so glad to have selected this home away from home in D.C.
