Truly a "once in a lifetime opportunity!" The iconic Deer House is considered by many to be the premier residence on Capitol Hill. Its commanding presence on East Capitol Street, just seven blocks east of the US Capitol, captivates all who pass by. Constructed for and by stone mason Antonio Malnati in 1903 by architect George S. Cooper, the majestic stone and brick facade features a sandstone entry stairway, front entrance with an ornate stone pediment, beautifully carved keystones and distinctive stepped-gable party walls. The double-width lot allows a graceful (and rare) side porch and courtyard featuring a hand-painted mural that transforms the space into a veritable Garden of Eden. The site of countless garden parties, weddings, fundraising events, Halloween extravaganzas and family dinners, this space is unrivaled on Capitol Hill. A true "entertainer's dream," the Deer House is widely known for hosting events for 200+ people. From the elegant entry hall to the spacious and bright living room, the exquisite chestnut-paneled dining room and the massive and beautifully functional kitchen, the home is tailor-made for gatherings large or small. Five bedrooms and three bathrooms occupy the second and third floors. The master bedroom suite features 2 walk-in closets and en-suite bathroom. A large in-law suite with two bedrooms and one full bathroom occupies the terrace level with the possibility of significant rental income. There is additional storage on this level for the main house including a walk-in wine cellar. The detached two car heated garage includes a utility sink and abundant storage for bikes and garden tools. The private driveway can accommodate an additional two cars. Beautifully renovated and impeccably maintained by its current owner, the Deer House is an architectural masterpiece awaiting the next chapter in its storied history.
