Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath with optional studio apt. with king bed.

This newly renovated 3 bedroom with each having its own bathroom Row House is located in the Capitol Hill Historic District within walking distance to all the DC sights such as US Capitol, US Senate, Washington Monuments, The White House, Union Station, Judicial Building and downtown DC. This house was completely renovated 3 years ago.

It is located in the safest neighborhood of Washington DC, Capitol Hill - Historic District. There are numerous grocery stores, restaurants and high end shopping areas within walking distance.

Capitol Hill Historic District takes its name from the hill, which rises in the center of the Federal City and extends eastward. Stretching easterly behind the Capitol Building along wide avenues lies the residential area known as Capitol Hill.

History of Capital Hill: Capitol Hill, one of the oldest residential communities in Washington, has grown from a small boarding house community for members of Congress to an area of more than 150 squares embracing a number of separate neighborhoods. In the early years of the Republic few Congressmen wished to establish permanent residence in the city. Instead, most preferred to live in boarding houses within walking distance of the Capitol. Nothing remains of this community, and the area closest to the Capitol contains the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the House and Senate Office buildings. Capitol Hill is the largest residential historic district in the District of Columbia. Almost every street is composed of row houses of different stylistic varieties and periods forming a continuous wall broken only by street intersections.

The Area: Side by side exist early 19th century manor houses, Federal townhouses, small frame dwellings, ornate Italianate bracketed houses and the late 19th century press brick row houses with their often whimsical decorative elements combining Richardsonian Romanesque, Queen Anne, and Eastlakian motifs. Within the Historic District, you will find the most luxurious accommodation in the one of the best areas in Washington DC with many restaurants, cafes and places to shop, including the Eastern Market, the city's largest farmers' market and flea market.

If available we can provide parking for 1 vehicle at Union Station which is 3 blocks from this rental. It is available on a first come basis.

If you have a question about our rental please don't hesitate to call Bob Finn at 623-297-8193. I sometimes call the person inquiring about our rental, but am finding that lots of people don't answer their phones these days. I find that it is some times easier to communicate in a phone conversation then it is by email. We want to make sure there is no misunderstanding about the location of our rentals and it amenities. Parking is limited in DC so if you are driving to DC you might want to talk with Bob about some parking solutions.

Great Stay In Washington DC.

  • 4 of 5

Our whole family enjoyed the stay here. Just a few comments, it looks like you replaced the dishwasher and refridgerator recently, but you can't use the dishwasher because the door doesn't open far enough to use because the refridgerator is in the way. Also I noticed when washing my hands in the bathroom off the kitchen that I smelt a terrible odor. I would get your drain pipe checked. Besides that everyone had a great time staying at your house, and its location is spot on for visiting Washington, DC.

The home was very comfortable and less than a 10 minute walk to Union Station. Union Station was beautiful and contained a number of places to eat and shop as well as being a hub for tour buses and taxis. Minutes from the house was a small mom and pops grocery store as well as two restaurants and a liquor store.. The area felt extremely safe with Capitol Police very visible.

Fantastic Row House, Great Location, Helpful Owner

  • 5 of 5

I chose this row house for a 25th Anniversary of friendship vacation for 6 women and it accommodated us perfectly. It was spacious, clean, full of amenities, and in an excellent location. We could walk to good restaurants and bars, as well as a corner grocery and wine shoppe to stock up for the house. The owner Bob gave us plenty of information via email weeks before the trip and I felt comfortable and confident that we would have a pleasant experience. We always felt safe and secure. The outdoor patio area was fun for cocktails and snacks. We all had comfortable beds, clean sheets and towels and adequate bathroom space. The living room area was large enough for all of us to hang out in. Although we never used it, the tvs in every room was a nice touch. Great HE washer/dryer with extra bathroom was helpful. Kitchen was stocked with dishes, towels, silverware. Other visitors left various coffees and teas. Overall it was a fantastic trip and this Row House was a large part of it!

Great size and location!

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this to anyone! It was wonderful to be able to cook our own meals and do our laundry so we didn't have to pack as much. There were 7 of us and we all slept comfortably. We were walking distance from the Union Station and the capital.

Awesome, Safe, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home. I cannot stress enough how perfect the location was to everything we wanted to see. The neighborhood was extremely safe, too. I even felt comfortable enough letting our young teenage sons go out for a run. If you have younger kids, there is a park with a playground very close, too. The home is beautiful. We came with multiple generations, and everyone had a place to spread out. There are a lot of stairs at varying heights, so make sure you hold onto the railings. But, personally, I thought the stairs added a lot of charm. The exposed brick wall in the living room was really pretty. We highly recommend this location and this beautiful row home. Thank you to the owners for allowing us to stay in your home. We also rented out the owners' studio apartment unit in the basement for other family. It was very convenient. We walked to the capital, the mall, and the museums. Union station is not far away, either. We took the metro from there to Arlington National Cemetery . Wonderful trip.
