This is your chance to live on one the best blocks in Capitol Hill. Make your new home at 1229 E St NEâthe cool blue, turret-topped Victorian 3-bedroom and 2 full bathroom rowhouse with its roof deck and detached garage. The home, built in 1908, is updated in all the right places while still exhibiting luxurious charm of early 20th century design aesthetics. The home is equipped with central air and the owners added mini splits to the bedrooms for extra energy efficiency. The main entrance up the wide brick stairway opens to a vestibule buffered by glass paned doors to allow light in and keep the elements out. The first sight in the entry is the rich espresso-finished staircase rail and balusters set against the exposed brick walls. The original mantel with inset mirror sits at the opening of the living room across from the squared bay window raised above E Street. The original refinished Carolina pine floor is laid through the main level into the dining room in the center of the home. Walk through the archway and you will be wowed by the dramatic chair rail, wainscoting, crown molding and original built-in China cabinet. The adjacent kitchen is generous in size with beautiful granite counters and ample cabinet space. Prepare your favorite feast using the 6-burner gas cooktop, range hood, stainless Kenmore fridge, and newer dual wall ovens with steam oven capability. The stainless dishwasher and new sink disposal make cleanup easy. A reverse osmosis water filter tap provides some of the purest drinking water possible. The brick patio off the kitchen has room for al fresco dining bordered by the brick trimmed flower beds. A retractable awning offers protection from the sun when needed. The ownerâs bedroom upstairs is generously sized with a large bay window alcove. Enjoy both privacy and daylight with the installed top-down bottom-up blinds. An additional closet system was installed to multiply the storage space offered. A ductless mini split cooling system combined with the ceiling fan provides efficient climate control during the night. The second bedroom shows off its character with its original transom above the door and cute chandelier. Original ornate hinge and door hardware is found on the closet door. The extra-spacious upstairs bathroom offers a dual sink vanity, whirlpool bathtub with new designer faucet and wand, and a glass walled stall shower. An upper-level staircase leads to the rooftop deck with panoramic views of the city and beyond. The third bedroom space is on the lower level next to the full bathroom that includes a vessel sink and shower with built in seat and shelf. The recreation area of the basement includes double sliding door storage and bright recessed lighting. Stairs from the back patio lead to the rear entrance of the basement. The detached one car garage has additional storage space and comes with industrial shelves and a work bench. The 1200 block of E St NE sits between Lovejoy Park and Kingsman Field, which offer a playground, community garden, and dog park just 1 block away from home. Itâs close to restaurants and shopping on H Street, but far enough away to avoid the car and foot traffic of visitors. Four grocery stores are within 12 blocks. Eastern Market and Union Market are each about 1 mile away. 3 metro stations are within 1.2 miles including Union Station which offers train services up and down the East Coast. Reagan National Airport is only 6 miles and Baltimore Washington International is a 40-minute drive up the BW Parkway.
