906 East Capitol Street, NE
This Victorian treasure, on Capitol Hill's premier boulevard, recently played a starring role in the Capitol Hill Restoration Society House Tour. Small wonder. The fabulous four-story white sandstone manse enchants with a captivating merger of extraordinary original detail and contemporary pizzazz.
Built in 1894, as sunlight and airiness became increasingly desirable, the home takes full advantage of its southern exposure, with tremendous bay windows and a central skylight above the grand staircase that lets light dazzle the interior rooms.
Ten foot ceilings on the main level add to the airy feel of the living room where custom cabinets flank the gas fireplace and fine wood floors gleam. The delicious formal dining room seats 16 in comfort and features pocket doors, a wall of cabinets, a discreetly hidden powder room, and stairs to the lower level.
Completely remodeled is the jaw-dropping kitchen with its cherry cabinets, island cook top, appliances from Bosch and Sub Zero, and a family area with an utterly fantastic floor to ceiling glass dining bay that completely opens to the patio.
The second level has three delightful bedrooms, two full baths, and a laundry. The front room, with another gloriously sunny bay, is currently used by the owners, but the third floor lends itself to a fantastic owner's retreat -- with a library (or bedroom) with balcony in front and a complete bedroom suite overlooking the patio.
Also on this level, a closet large enough for a bedroom and access to a loft hideaway tucked into the mansard roof.
Another full suite, with kitchen and private entrance, occupies the home’s lower level -- great for in-laws, office, or private quarters for the boomerang kid. Also on this level, an enormous storage area that easily converts to a play room.
And it’s all just steps to Lincoln Park, Eastern Market, METRO, fantastic dining and shopping, and the U.S. Capitol!
Truly, a signature property!

Deliciously Eastern Market!
212 6th Street, SE $1495000
An absolutely inspired blend of classic and contemporary design is this magnificent bay front Victorian, where fabulous original details brilliantly meet the 21st century and the workmanship is truly extraordinary.
Exquisite original features have been masterfully restored, including crown moldings, intricately carved ceiling medallions, and marble fireplace surrounds. A pair of splendid crystal chandeliers combined with recessed lighting, double the living room dazzle and smooth the transition to the fabulous chef’s kitchen — all stainless and granite, with a work island, double wall ovens, and a six burner cook top with a pot filler. Adjoining the kitchen is a spacious family/breakfast room that leads out to a charming patio with beds ready made for your roses and heirloom tomatoes.
Upstairs are three fine bedrooms, three baths (two en suite), and a laundry.
Downstairs is a fabulous apartment, with living room and kitchen, plus two additional bedrooms, a bath, and a second laundry. With a private entrance on the historic street, and independent heating and cooling systems, the English Basement is a potential income unit — or ideal quarters for in laws, au pair, or a home office.
And it’s all inboundry for the Brent School and just steps to Eastern Market, the Hill’s historic heart!

1848 Potomac Avenue, SE
NEW PRICE! $799,900
This deliciously delightful classic porch front home sits deep within an expertly landscaped garden — just blocks from RFK Stadium, METRO, and a 50 acre tract slated for redevelopment next year. Plans include shops, eateries, new housing and green space.
Completely, and FABULOUSLY renovated within, this is a home that truly takes its cue (then burnishes it to a brilliant glow) from the hi-tech wunderkinds of HGTV. The plan is wide open, with a fantastic visual sweep past the living area with its gas fireplace, to the to-die-for gourmet kitchen with its granite topped work/breakfast bar and a rare array of exceptional stainless appliances — can you say Liebherr? — and on to the charming dining area.
Downstairs is a wonderfully spacious family room with a second gas fireplace, a full bath, and a great home office (or third bedroom). Virtually a complete room in a bookcase, the built-in wall unit includes a Murphy bed, desk, drawers and shelving. Plus three over-sized closets and a private entrance.
Opening off a sky lit upper hallway are two big, beautiful suites: one with a gas fireplace, custom cabinetry, a closet lined hallway, and an opulently tiled bath; the other with a charming view of the street and a sparkling sky lit bath.
And out back? Oh my. Is this courtyard patio ever divine — with stone floor, central fire pit, separate areas for dining and relaxing, and over it all, a pair of flying awnings!
Plus! There’s off-street parking for two cars, and just a two block walk to the Potomac Avenue METRO and RFK Stadium!

Grace Church $459,000
Condominium homes in Grace Church rarely come available, with good reason. Each of the 18 units in this historic boutique building is unique, designed to highlight the charms of the circa 1891 treasure: the stained glass windows, the quirky angles, the steps that wind through like a heavenly stairmaster -- cancel the gym membership!
Surrounded by lawn and garden, with a roof deck offering Capitol views, the buildings most alluring feature is the magnificent three-story atrium at its center. Like an ancient European courtyard, open to the sky, where breezes gently toss raindrops and snow falls upon camellia blossoms. There is nothing in Washington that compares, perhaps not in the world.
Opening directly onto the atrium, this generously-scaled, one-bedroom beauty features a luxurious living room, with a wood-burning fireplace, and a huge window to capture the dazzling southern exposure.
Designed for ease, efficiency, and elegance, the cook's kitchen opens directly to the living room. With no overhead cabinets, there's a formal feeling with no sacrifice of storage -- and the clean sweep of counter is perfect for both prep and a buffet. It's a marvelous layout that invites entertaining.
And the location is second to none, with METRO, Eastern Market, and Barracks row across the street, the Library of Congress, Supreme Court and, of course, the U.S. Capitol just blocks away.
Park your car in the deeded garage space and take a stroll!
