About David Cooper

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at my listing! I am a retired career military officer originally from Austin, Texas and finished my last few years of military service in the DC area. I hope you enjoy your time visiting our nation's capital, and if there is anything I can do to assist, please let me know!

David Cooper purchased this townhome in 2006

Why David Cooper chose Eastern Market

Historic Capitol Hill is truly a downtown suburb that offers all the excitement of the city yet retains a safe and small neighborhood feel. The residents here are a tight-knit group comprised mostly of families who possess a strong sense of community. Nestled within the long rows of neighborhood homes you will find pockets of excitement ranging from a multitude of eating establishments to DC's only remaining original public produce market, known as Eastern Market. And of course it's extremely close proximity to the Capitol and various Smithsonian museums puts you literally at the doorstep of our nation's history. It is an absolutely wonderful location for both residents and visitors alike!

What makes this townhome unique

No expense was spared in remodeling and furnishing this house. You will be staying in an historic home complete with modern amenities. Location-wise, everything you need (restaurants, groceries, shopping, Metro) is within 2 blocks and everything you want to see (Capitol, Library of Congress, National Mall, Smithsonian museums) is just a few blocks further and within easy walking distance. Live amongst the locals and truly feel at home during your visit!

Basement Apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is located on a very lovely street within walking distance of many restaurants. It was close enough to the Capital Mall, where we walked to every morning we were there. The apartment itself was very comfortable and updated and clean. It is listed for up to 4 people, but I think that would have been a little tight if there are four of you. Has one bedroom and the sofa makes into a bed, and one bathroom. I think it is better suited for two people. It was perfect for us. There is "walking noise" from unit above. First people while we were there were very quiet (shoes off). Second ones were noisier as they had on shoes, but never heard any talking or tv. Enjoyed our stay and working with the owner was very good. One thing I suggest is that you have mosquito repellent with you. Entry area seems to be good place for them to congregate as it is low and covered by above unit's stairs and landscaping as you come down the stairs. There was some spray in the apt. we used a few times to keep them away from the front door. Other than that, we had a wonderful time.

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

We appreciated the opportunity to stay in this unit, a 5 minute walk to the Union Station/Metro, which we used to go everywhere! As the homeowner is no longer living in the DC area, there is some slight deferred maintenance, nothing too major. The most difficult was the very firm mattress. The seller was very nice and ordered a memory foam cover to help soften the bed and it was delivered the next morning. It helped however the mattress went from rock hard to firm.

Owner's Response: Mattresses are obviously a matter of personal preference, and this one happens to be, in my opinion, one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. Regardless, I did my best to accommodate Annette by purchasing a mattress topper at her request.

Perfect location and accommodations

We stayed at this row house last fall and again last week. Perfect location and wonderful accommodations. Refundable deposit was quickly returned and the owner was so easy to deal with. Highly recommend staying here!

Location, location, location!

The Capitol Row House was perfect for our stay in Washington. The neighborhood was full of charm as we walked to all of our tourist activities. The apartment was beautiful and very peaceful. The kitchen was great with all top of the line appliances. The best part about the row house was that is was in an ideal location near the Capital and Union Station. We became very familiar with the metro system and we used the bike share system to get to the museums and to visit all the memorials. We will return soon and we will definitely stay at the row house property again.

very cozy and comfortable. Can't beat the location for sightseeing as it is close to Union Station

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the stay at this location. For just two people it worked well. I liked the walkability to Union Station. The owner has made the ease of entry and using things like the wifi very easy. There is a garage space for one car which we rented for a drive to Mount Vernon. I would stay here again. One note, the area was having a heat wave and the freezer was broken so no ice for drinks.
