This spectacular townhouse located on the Senate side of Capitol Hill is a pleasant ten minute walk to Union Station (Amtrak, Metro, Circulator Bus & shopping), the US Capitol, the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Historic Eastern Market, with a multitude of shopping and dining options, is also a 10 minute walk through this charming neighborhood of late 19th century row houses and parks.
The property is beautifully appointed and professionally decorated by one of Washington DC's most talented design stars! It has a decidedly European flair, mixing elegant antiques with modern furniture.
The main floor has a wonderful South facing living room with fireplace and dining area. There is an elegant powder Room with mirrored vanity and marble floors.
The kitchen is located at the rear of the house and has an eating area as well as a breakfast bar. This overlooks a Charming City garden.
The master bedroom on the second floor has a king size bed, floor to ceiling French Doors with a small Juliet Balcony overlooking the garden. Beautiful custom made closets flank the French Doors, and the master bath has an over-sized marble tub.
The second bedroom has a queen bed with a pull out sofa. A beautiful recently installed bathroom with shower and dual shower heads...
This one is a show stopper!
The light and airy south-facing salon features tall ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, wood floors and elegant appointments including a seating area with television and a library/dining table. The fully-equipped eat-in kitchen boasts abundant cherry cabinets, black granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and slate floors. French doors open from the dining area to a lovely garden perfect for unwinding after a long day of work or sightseeing. The elegant powder room would be completely at home in Versailles! A true jewel and work of art!
On the second level are two large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. One bedroom features a queen-size bed plus a sofa and writing desk and a connecting bathroom with an extra large shower with two shower heads. The master bedroom suite is modeled on a Parisian luxury hotel, featuring built-in cabinetry, a king-size bed and television. French doors open to reveal a beautiful balcony overlooking the peaceful garden below. The master bathroom features a jetted tub (sorry no shower is this bathroom) and washer/dryer.
Go ahead and treat yourself! You deserve something beyond the ordinary! I invite you to have the "vacation of a lifetime" experience in D.C.!

A lovely town home with good access to public transportation and within walking distance to stores and restaurants. Pack your reliable walking shoes and you are at the Capitol within 10 -15 minutes, or Union Station within 15 minutes. This is the perfect spot for someone who likes quiet and privacy to retreat to after a long day of taking in the sights. We traveled with our middle school student who loved the large front bedroom and her own full bath. We stayed in the Master Suite with a very comfortable bed and full bath with Jacuzzi tub. The finishes in the home are of excellent quality but the absence of owner occupation is evident in the slightly neglected state of some of the cups, furniture and flooring. Nothing that significantly affected the comfort of our stay, however. This is not a hotel, come prepared with all the toiletries that you will need including bar soap if desired. The linens, towels and hairdryers were all good quality and well supplied, We used the washer/dryer combo with no trouble and good results. This is a great spot for two couples traveling together or a family. The neighborhood was quiet and seemed safe.

This house is perfectly situated for touring all the great sites near Capitol Hill and The Mall. The neighbourhood is safe and quiet. The house is a twelve minute walk from Union Station and close to a range of good restaurants and bars. There is a very convenient bike share station just 2 minutes away. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay including a large well stocked kitchen. Bathrooms are spacious and well appointed. Wifi was perfect - even worked in the garden area outside!
