Virtual Tour
Discover the perfect blend of historic charm and modern amenities in this stunning and spacious end-unit rowhouse. Crafted in 1921 and clocking in at nearly 2500 sqft, this Wardman-style home sits on an extra deep lot located in the heart of Capitol Hill. As you step inside, you'll be greeted by a welcoming foyer and a bright and airy living room with gleaming original hardwood floors, high ceilings, and large windows with custom window treatments. The open-concept main level seamlessly flows into the spacious dining area while preserving period details. Grasscloth wallpaper and custom built-ins add elegance and warmth for family dinners or entertaining guests. A recently remodeled gourmet kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances, soapstone countertops, and plenty of cabinet and pantry space complements the main living area. Completing the first floor is a perfect work-from-home space or cozy den at the rear of the home. Here you’ll discover perhaps the true gem of this property as the 8-foot slider opens to the large maintenance-free deck overlooking an incredible yard with patio and turf, perfect for entertaining, yard games, or sitting around the fire pit. Upstairs, you'll find two oversized bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath, and plenty of closet space. Off the rear bedroom, you’ll find yet another bonus space perfect for WFH, exercise, or retreating from the day’s activities. The lower level offers endless possibilities. With a large open space, custom built-ins, cork flooring, and a 3rd full bath, this is the perfect flex space for an in-law or guest suite, the ultimate game day experience, or a movie night. You’ll also find a laundry room with an Elfa shelving system and tons of storage. Recent smart updates include owned solar panels (2016), complete kitchen renovation with appliances (2018), backyard renovation including new slider, siding, deck, turf, and playground equipment (2020), 200 amp heavy up (2014), garage, mansard, and porch roofs (2015), A/C replaced (2015) mini-split A/C & Heat for lower level and rear main level (2018), and freshly painted exterior (2020). Everything has been done so you don’t have to! With a two-car garage for secure off-street parking, and an amazing location just steps from historic Eastern Market, the Capitol complex, Barracks Row, and Union Station, this home offers the ultimate in convenience and comfort. Welcome home!
