Capitol Hill is DC's largest historic neighborhood and also its most populated with approximately 35,000 residents.  Despite this density of residents, the Hill lives like a small town in the midst of a large urban city.

Families are drawn to the hill for its wonderful stock of Victorian-era row houses.  Much of Capitol Hill was developed for owners of more modest means and much of the housing stock reflects this origin.  While row houses in other DC neighborhoods like Georgetown, Dupont and Logan are beyond the financial means of many families, the Hill's lower price points open row house living opportunities to many more families.  

Residents of Capitol Hill enjoy walking to the communities attractions including Eastern Market, the oldest fresh food market in DC, dog walking in Lincoln Park and taking in a baseball game at nearby Nationals Park.  With Metro access at three stations, Capitol Hill is a quick train ride to Downtown and other points in the District.

With their dynamic palette of colors, the Hill's row house lined streets are a thing of beauty.  One of the best aspects of the row house market on Capitol Hill is that no two are alike.  Our team truly enjoys showing clients the the available inventory of Capitol Hill row houses as architectural features, recent improvements and quaint outdoor spaces draw in buyers like steel to a magnet.
