Urban oasis, inner tranquility and East Capitol Hill Convenience. Elegant and charming, this well-designed and beautifully renovated 18'-wide end unit home pays homage to the history of the building while embracing open contemporary living. Original heart pine floors and graceful stairs framed by a generous arched opening; gas fireplace, large casement windows, abundant light on 3 sides and 8' tall French doors leading to a raised terrace with a professionally landscaped yard invites the scenic outdoors in. The expansive corner lot with fenced mature garden has plenty of room to host gatherings, create your own playground or even nearly double the size of the home with an addition - while keeping ample outdoor open space. Plenty of storage, upgraded and custom features throughout the home, including slide-in gas stove, made-to-order kitchen cabinets, butler's pantry, custom wood doors, recessed cabinets and closets. Light-filled second floor sun room that can easily be converted back to a third bedroom (see sketch) leads to the relaxing master retreat with a spacious walk-in closet. Lit from above with natural light, the walk-in has built-in drawer units, shelves and custom doors for flexible configurations. Leave the sliding doors open for a view through the second bedroom to the trees beyond or close off and use as a dressing room. Also on this level is the spa-like family bathroom with marble-lined walls and linen cubbies, recessed storage, walk-in shower and deep soaking tub with a treetop view. The full basement is currently used as a professional art studio and adds more room for expansion capabilities. Already in place, the electrical panel heavy up to 200 amp has plenty of room for additional service.

Leave your car in the gated driveway and walk to the many amenities of this neighborhood such as the 35-acre Historic Congressional Cemetery, home of the famed K9 Corps (for unparalleled dog romping) and site of community events such as Cinematery, Book Club, yoga, concerts in the chapel to name a few. The neighborhood is unbeatable - hip, new restaurants and old neighborhood favorites including the Pretzel Bakery or Trusty's, city-wide faves at culinary clubhouse The Roost such as Red Apron, Caruso's or Leni's, the cafe led by James Beard nominated chef/owner Brittanny Anderson, not to mention Eastern Market and Barrack's Row. Stadium-Armory Metro station is only two blocks away, the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail is easily accessible and planned street bike lanes to be installed at your doorstep. Just beyond your doorstep is the completed first phase of the Hill East Waterfront development with retail and restaurants on the way.

So many possibilities with this move-in ready home that can grow with you: build a non-load bearing second floor wall with a door for a third bedroom, add a rental unit downstairs, expand with an addition for a row-home-sized condo or rental unit or simply expand for a growing family. Or sit at your desk overlooking the terrace, sipping your morning coffee and enjoying the sunrise and your lovely home.
