Sunny townhouse right in the heart of Capitol Hill! Walking distance to the US Capitol, the H street restaurant district, Union Station, the Atlas art district, Eastern Market, and Barracks Row. Newly renovated, this south facing house features a front garden and patio. The two large bedrooms each have one queen bed. The third small bedroom has a crib. Previously this was a shared house with our au pair, but now she has moved out so you will have the place to yourself!

The space
There are 3 bedrooms. The Master Bedroom has a king bed, nightstand, and huge closet with built in dresser, and a regular closet. The South Bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, full closet and a rocking chair. The North Bedroom has a crib and a luggage bench with shoe cubbies. Each bedroom has both room-darkening curtains as well as a sheer day curtain. There is a full-size, front loading, washer and dryer. New double glazed windows create a quiet retreat from your busy days.
The neighbors are hyper vigilant about wearing masks. People have been very well behaved at the many parks and playgrounds within walking distance, staying over 10 feet away. The cleaning service follows very strict protocols about sanitizing all high-touch areas, including all doorknobs, switches, etc.

The house is just 2 blocks to the hip and happening H Street, with restaurants, bars, and shopping. Catch the new H Street streetcar (free), and ride to Union Station. Recently renovated, this historic train station features your closest Metro stop, the Amtrak station, as well as shopping and casual dining options. Or just a 15 minute walk through our lovely Capitol Hill neighborhood.
Walk 20 minutes south, and find one of the oldest fresh food markets on the East Coast, Eastern Market. Inside is one of the best rated breakfast places in the neighborhood, but if you are not in the mood to wait for a place at their bar tables, grab fresh doughnuts made right there in the outdoor market. There is a lively art and flea market most weekends.
Our zip code has been given a “very walkable” assessment of 95. Walking times: 1 minute to one of the best playgrounds in the district, 5 minutes to H Street and the Atlas Arts District, 15 minutes to Union Station, 25 minutes to Eastern Market, and 20 minutes to the US Capitol. A Capital Bikeshare station is immediately across the street. Several corner stores and a neighborhood library are within a few blocks. East Side Yoga is next door. For those less interested in yoga, Ben’s Chili Bowl and Kenny’s BBQ Smokehouse are each 2 blocks away!

While the US Capitol is only a 20 minute walk from our house, you may chose the Metro to get to the Smithsonian and the various other sites and museums. It is easy to navigate and allows you to avoid traffic.

Welcome to DC! We can't wait to meet you! We are two architects, and we live right next door. We work for large design firms in DC, and like so many DC residents, commute via bicycle. We also travel to places like New York and Mumbai but are very involved and proud of our local schools and organizations. Our children attend Chinese-immersion public charter schools. We lived and worked in East Asia for 13 years before returning to DC in 2009.
