Perfectly situated on one of Capitol Hill's best blocks! A quiet, historic neighborhood 3 short blocks from the Capitol Dome. One block from Capitol South Metro station. Walk to dozens of restaurants, taverns & shops--all within a charming 3 block walk. You'll love our bright & spacious "English basement" apartment. Almost everything new: the space was completely renovated in 2017-18. The perfect home base for a romantic weekend, business travel, or stress-free family adventure.

The space
Accommodation: a spacious & brightly-lit "English basement" style (1 bedroom) apartment. Clean and uncluttered with plenty of windows and natural light. The keypad-secured front entrance is completely separate from the upstairs Victorian era (c.1890) Washington row house. We recently completed a thorough, floor-to-ceiling basement renovation. Guests control both the central heat & AC so the temperature should always be comfortable.

Bedroom: features a very large king-sized bed with new plush bedding. Plenty of closet & shelf space. Bedside flat screen smart TV with a full cable package, WiFi, Netflix, etc.

Living Room: features a sofa-sleeper with a queen-sized memory foam mattress. Two sitting/reading chairs are in the bay window cove. A large TV mounted over working remote-controlled electric fireplace. (Note: upon request, a 5th guest can be accommodated with a thick self-inflating air mattress and its bedding.)

Kitchen: coffee/tea maker, refrigerator, microwave, traditional oven, 4 burner range, toaster, tile counter-top; glassware, flatware & cooking tools & cutlery supplied. A small "drop-leaf" style table seats 2, but is easily expandable to accommodate 4 diners.

Bathroom: contains a shower and full sized bathtub; plush bath and hand are towels provided, as are toiletries, bathroom tissue, and a hairdryer.

Washer/Dryer: located in a small utility closet; detergent, an iron, and an ironing board are also provided.

Front garden: guests may use the very small front garden. Weather permitting, the small high-top table & 2 swivel chairs are ideal for morning coffee, evening drinks, smoking, or waiting for Uber/Lyft.

Although located in the heart of the close-in Capitol Hill Historic District, the house is on a quiet, leafy residential street facing Folger Park. Numerous trendy restaurants, historic taverns, family cafes, coffee shops, bakeries, and corner groceries are all within an easy 3-5 minute walk . Capitol South Metro station is 1 block west. The Capitol dome, the House office buildings, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, and Shakespeare Library/Theater are only a few blocks North. Five blocks to the East are the historic Eastern Market, 8th Street (Barracks Row) shops/restaurants, and numerous historic homes and gardens. Finally, the up & coming Navy Yard entertainment district & Nationals Park are a quick 15 minute walk (or 5-minute bike-share or Uber ride) to the South.
