From the Nation's Capitol, East Capitol Street runs due east to the DC-Maryland border. Some of the choicest real estate can be found on these blocks, and on rare occasions, a very special property becomes available. Just six blocks from the Capitol, 638 E Capitol St NE occupies a prominent setting in a premier Capitol Hill location. Facing South, the dwelling enjoys natural sunlight through large windows and top floor skylights. This unique property is one of three towering Victorians often pictured on publications about Washington DC and Capitol Hill architecture. DC tax records date the property's beginning to 1908, but it is well documented to have been built by Charles Gessford, who died in 1894. Between 1875 and 1894, Gessford, one of the city's prolific builders, built more row houses on the Hill than anyone else. The Capitol Hill Restoration Society counts Gessford-designed properties on 824-832 D St SE and 638-642 East Capitol St SE and NE. Gessford's row houses usually had a square-cornered projecting bay that stretched from ground to sky, always in red pressed brick, and often with stone trim. Gessford further enhanced his most expensive houses with stained glass windows and door transoms and slate roofs. 638 E Capitol St NE retains much of its original details including stained glass accents, exposed brick and woodwork. Throughout, there are modern finishes and architectural touches including coffered ceilings, recessed lighting, gourmet kitchen, marble flooring and multiple fireplaces. This property also features a finished English basement apartment with its own front and rear doors and a rear brick patio leading to a two story over-sized carriage house. McLean Stained Glass Studios recently restored four of the lovely stained glass panels to their original glory. This much loved home is now ready for new owners to create their own life spaces!
