This sophisticated home is steps from everything Capitol Hill has to offer. Small and mighty, it has been lovingly maintained and updated to maximize the potential of the space in a stylishly edgy way. The first floor of the home was dug down, creating approximately 2 additional feet of ceiling height in the main living area. The result is a very comfortable space that feels open and airy. The brick arched doorway and matching brick arched fireplace at the rear of the home set the architectural tenor - a smart mix of old and new. The fireplace was updated in 2020 with a new vent-free gas insert and log set with remote - so easy and convenient to use that the sellers of the home preferred to heat the first level with the fireplace. The kitchen features classic checkerboard flooring and at the rear of the first level there is a convenient half bath and laundry. Upstairs there are two well sized bedrooms. The master bedroom features a custom reclaimed wood headboard wall. The rear bedroom is large enough to comfortably fit both a bed and desk area. It features custom wood shelving for additional storage and a 70 inch oak workstation. The stylish master bath was recently renovated and features top-of-the-line hardware and excellent storage. The home has two outdoor spaces. The sunny, south-facing front yard offers room for outdoor seating and socializing. The private rear yard has additional room for seating as well as a detached shed that is clean, dry, and has a newer roof.
The home is 4 blocks to the Eastern Market Metro, 2 blocks to the Potomac Ave Metro, and on multiple efficient bus and bike routes. Within a 5 block radius are some of DC's best restaurants, bars, shops, groceries, and fitness studios - from Rose's Luxury and Chiko to Eastern Market and Trader Joe's to Biker Barre and Orange Theory.
When asked what they would miss most about their home, the Sellers said "We loved being able to walk everywhere! The ambiance of the fireplace in the wintertime was really special for us. Relaxing outside and chatting with the neighbors. We really used the shed in the backyard a lot for projects we were working on. We'll miss the home for many reasons it's hard to pick one - we really loved this home."
