Introducing a rare find detached Capitol Hill home on a double lot near the US Capitol and Lincoln Park. Built in 1900 , this distinctive Federal style home embodies all the charm and elegance of a bygone era. The property features both an ample enclosed private East Garden and a more public South Garden which has been written about in numerous publications and is recommended as the starting point on the Capitol Hill Walking Tour. 804 East Capitol St NE features many trademark turn of the 20th century details, including the original cornice above the federal styled façade, new double hung 4 panel divided light windows, ornate interior custom moldings throughout the main living area, and beautiful wide plank heart pine floors. With custom millwork, and over $1,400,000 in collaborative restoration over a 10 year period to fully restore and this graciously maintained home. The dramatic entry way, with its beautifully restored staircase, greets guests as they step into a stately double parlor with two wood burning fireplaces, two exquisite, antiqued brass chandeliers and South and East elevation windows. A French door leads to the East Garden. The Main Entry Hall holds a beautiful well situated powder room with marble floors and wainscoting and leads to the Formal Dining room adorned with crown molding, chair rail, two backlit built-in display cases and a spectacular view of the East Garden. The Cook’s Kitchen features beveled bull nosed Carrara marble counters and Belgian Bluestone floor; Wolf, Miele and Sub-zero stainless-steel appliances with natural gas cooking; a raised Carrara marble breakfast bar with seating; custom solid fruitwood cabinets built to the ceiling with lit upper display areas, a pair of corner Lazy Susan's and wicker basket drawer for more than ample space for the chef in you. If more space is needed for caterers and/or guests, this home also features a 2nd fully equipped kitchen on the lower level. The 11’ x 8’ breakfast room adjacent to the Kitchen is surrounded by north, east and south elevation insulated windows overlooking the spectacular East Garden and patio entertainment area. The Family Room features a French Périgord style raised limestone fireplace (steel reinforced bench) reminiscent of typical homes found in the Dordogne River region in the South of France and double, fully operable French doors leading to a flagstone patio and firepit area with a pergola to the left and the East Garden to the right. The 2nd level has 3 generously sized bedrooms including a primary bedroom with wood burning fireplace, in-suite bathroom and dressing room overlooking the East Garden. The access to the lower level access is centrally located off the main hall through an almost hidden custom millwork door to a surprisingly naturally lite staircase with exposed brick west wall. As you descend to the lower level the amount of natural light from two large southern exposure windows will delight your visual senses as it reflects off the light limestone tiled floor of the media room complete with a built-in surround sound system and large flat screen TV (that conveys) for an immersive movie watching experience and an Au Pair suite. The English style South Garden in front of this home is framed by an ornate original wrought iron fence and gates. Lastly a single car detached garage with over car storage and 2-car parking pad flanks the north end of the lot in the rear alley. All of this and more in short walking proximity to the US Capitol, the Library of Congress, Eastern Market, Folger Shakespeare Library and Theater, Union Station and Lincoln Park. Convenient to some of DC’s and the country’s best restaurants (8th Street SE, Barrack’s Row, the Navy Yard and Penn Ave corridors), grocery stores (Whole Foods, Harris Teeter and Trader Joes) coffee shops, bike and nature trails, gyms and Eastern Market Metro with a 91-walk score.
