Butterfield House: Distinguished Capitol Hill Address

butterfield house washington dc

The 28 condos at Butterfield House on historic Capitol Hill are a beautifully designed development, traditional on the outside but modern on the inside.  The development features a six-story red brick Victorian mansion housing the 28 residences that nicely blends in with historic row houses in the surrounding neighborhood at 10th and Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.  The architecture takes its cues from its surroundings.  The condos include studios, 1, 2 and 3-bedroom units and range in size from 509 - 2,000 SF of living space.  The location is prime; walking distance to the U.S. Capitol, congressional office buildings, Eastern Market, the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, Union Station and the Nationals baseball stadium.  The Metro is within walking distance, a 3-block walk to Eastern Market on the Blue and Orange Lines.  With its walkable location on Capitol Hill, it is a preferred living area for Congressmen and U.S. Senators.

Amenities at Butterfield House include airy 9’ ceilings; reclaimed wide-plank cherry hardwood floors; crown moldings; maple cabinetry; views of the Capitol Dome; secure underground parking; video entry systems; and a washer/dryer in each unit.  All one, two and three bedroom residences have at least one private balcony.  State-of-the-art kitchens have granite countertops and stainless steel appliances by Jenn-Air.  A panoramic roof deck offers striking views of the Capitol Dome. Butterfield House is one of the few pet-friendly Capitol Hill condo developments.  Just outside the front door are many restaurants and shops on Pennsylvania Avenue, Barracks Row, Eastern Market, Trader Joe’s and Safeway.  Eastern Market offers an indoor/outdoor local farmers’ market shopping.

SGA Companies, a Bethesda-based developer has been the architect, and converted the site from a former gas station and auto repair shop to a condominium development completed in 2008 over two years.  Its address on prestigious Pennsylvania Avenue makes it one of the most iconic buildings on Capitol Hill.  Butterfield House was recognized by the prestigious National Building Museum for its style.
