919 East Capitol St, SE
Capital Grande Dame!

Is there a more quintessential Washington experience than strolling out your front gate of a beautiful summer morning and catching sight of the frosted dome of the U.S. Capitol?

This absolutely glorious brick Victorian, an outstanding example of chicly restored and renovated splendor, sits back from Capitol Hill’s most prestigious boulevard, nestled in gardens and shaded by magnificent trees.

 Within, are four levels of enchanting living and entertaining space, filled with beautiful period details that are cleverly mixed with contemporary luxuries — from the towering pier glass mirror and gorgeous doors in the stunning front hallway — granite counters and Bosch appliances in the superb chef’s kitchen.

On the main level, that hallway opens to a beautiful living room, centered around a stately fireplace, and graced with near floor to ceiling windows and custom cabinetry. The huge, sparkling kitchen provides every bell & whistle for the chef — and family gathering space as well, with a breakfast/casual dining area in a windowed corner. Step out from here to the patio, a brilliant mix of sunshine and shade — with a charming perennial border with space left for herbs and roses to surround and deliciously scent your outdoor entertaining.

Upstairs are four gloriously spacious and sunny bedrooms, including a fantastic master suite with dressing room, enormous, custom-fitted, walk-in closet, and a hotel style bath. French doors on the third level present a delightful Peter Pan cityscape — and open the possibility of a roof deck for additional outdoor relaxation space.

Plus! There’s a one-bedroom, one bath, plus kitchen income unit on the garden level that still connects to the upper floors! Just open the door and have a home office, guest suite, or fantastic family room!

The epitome of pristine perfection is this sparkling Victorian in the historic heart of Capitol Hill! The attention to detail is extraordinary, from the gloriously polished wood floors to the sensational chandeliers that light up the living rooms with artful elegance.

 A traditional tiled foyer opens to a handsome hallway, that in turn leads to the gracious high-ceilinged living room with its sunny bay window. Follow the archway into the formal dining room, scaled for a holiday banquet, but cozy enough for candle-lit dining a deux.

Occupying the back of the home is the family room and kitchen. Here, huge windows and French doors define the space, giving it the feeling of a solarium in the cooler months — and bringing the outside in from Spring through Fall. You step out from here to a delightfully private patio and a TWO-CAR GARAGE as sweet as a country cottage.

The chef’s kitchen is a wonder. Brilliantly lighted, with great expanses of granite counter and top of the line stainless appliances from Bosch and GE, there’s storage here for everything from the cherry pitter to a Super Bowl-sized haul from Costco.

Off the kitchen is a particularly handsome powder room, a large closet (oh the storage in this house!), and stairs to the full basement and laundry — the perfect man cave, playroom, or
future guest quarters.

The owner’s suite on the second floor occupies its own wing, with a room-sized, professionally fitted closet and beautifully tiled bath. Two additional queen-sized bedrooms are on this level along with a second full bath, and a home office, which would do very well as a nursery.

The location? Scarcely a ten minute stroll (with time to sniff the roses) to METRO, Union Station, Eastern Market, Barracks Row, the Library of Congress, Supreme Court and the
U. S. Capitol!

Talk About Location and Pizzazz!
520 Third Street, NE $989,000

1892. The year Edison invented the two-way telegraph, Ellis Island opened, Tchaikovsky wrote the Nutcracker Suite — and 520 Third Street, NE was built and purchased by the Groff family.

More than a century later, this elegant Victorian still stands proud on its tree-lined street, set behind wrought iron gates, with a brick walk winding through a lovingly landscaped garden. Within is a magical melding of original and new — and with three exposed sides, an exceptional feeling of airiness and light!

 Brilliant sunshine highlights the bay–windowed living room, where the original fireplace is surrounded by custom bookshelves and cabinets. In the center of the house is the parlor, with an original fireplace mantle and the beautifully constructed stairway to the home’s second level. Following the parlor is a spacious formal dining room, also adorned by an original mantle, as well as entry to the powder room and access to the full basement.

Completely new is the wonderful chef’s kitchen. The breakfast table enjoys a sweet spot in the bay window, enjoying a delightful view of the sculpted deck and the brick patio beyond (take your coffee out in mild weather and enjoy the breeze). Everything is top of the line stainless, from the 5-burner GE range to the HUGE Maytag fridge. There’s even a wine cooler built into one of the granite topped wings of the work island. And the storage is endless!

The second floor landing is dazzled by a stunning skylight and a gallery-style hallway that wanders to the marvelous master suite with its big bay for lounging and a big, beautiful bath with double vanity. Two additional bright and spacious bedrooms are on this floor along with a second full bath.

In the Hill’s sweet spot, with a walkability score of 92% — “no car needed”— from, it’s truly mere steps to great dining on Massachusetts Avenue and H Street, groceries at the new Giant, Union Station and METRO, the SEC, and the
U.S. Capitol!
