Overview

Capitol Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Stylish One Bedroom Apartment Steps From The Capitol

You’ve found the best location in Washington, DC!

Welcome to Capitol Escape, a boutique, one-bedroom English Basement apartment on the most famous street in DC’s historic Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Ideally situated for work or play, Capitol Escape is a few short blocks from the US Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress and House and Senate office buildings. Catch the bus right outside your door or walk three blocks to Eastern Market Metro Station for access to all of the sights and sounds of the Nation’s capital.

Eclectic and hip, but always stylish, the apartment is decorated with unique, vintage pieces and a revolving gallery of works by local artists (many available for purchase).

Capitol Escape includes all of the amenities you would expect at a fine hotel, and then some: full kitchen, coffee maker with gourmet coffee, washer/dryer, 32” HDTV with DVD player and cable, free WiFi, queen bed with 650-thread count linens and down comforter, iPod/iPhone compatible clock radio, and bliss™ bath products.

With more than 30 restaurants, bars and coffee shops a short walk away, you’ll never eat at the same place twice. Or pick up fresh, locally-sourced ingredients for the perfect dinner in from from nearby Eastern Market (which expands on weekends into a fantastic outdoor market featuring antiques, jewelry, art, farm-fresh produce, etc).

The apartment is perfect for 2, but can accommodate up to 4 with an air mattress that we provide. Take the Metro or a short cab ride from Reagan National Airport. If you’re on Amtrak, Union Station is less than one mile away.

About Barrett Karr

We have lived on the Hill for 17 years and worked in and out of government. We are proud parents, occasional foodies, and supporters of local artists. We always dreamed of owning a house on East Capitol Street and -- bonus! -- ours came with a one bedroom apartment.

Barrett Karr purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Barrett Karr chose Capitol Hill

We moved to Capitol Hill 17 years ago and never left. The Hill has a unique combination of history, walkability and a genuine neighborhood feel -- all within steps of the US Capitol. When we finally had the opportunity to buy a house on the street that is literally at the heart of the Hill, we jumped. Come see why! We may even let you in on a few of our favorite local haunts...

What makes this apartment unique

East Capitol Street is one of DC's most historic avenues; it literally is the north-south dividing line and runs directly into the US Capitol. Houses on East Capitol rarely come on the market; we waited 17 years for this one!

Already planning our return stay!

Location is perfect, quiet yet close to sightseeing destination and restaurants. The apartment suited our needs to a T! It was very comfortable and we felt right at home during our stay. The owners are very accessible and always quickly answered our questions before our arrival. We will definitely be back soon. This truly is an awesome place.

Great Apartment- Beautiful Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this apartment was excellent. The location was perfect and the owner came by the first day to introduce himself. The apartment was appointed nicely and the bed was very comfortable. Everything was in walking distance and the neighborhood is beautiful. I highly recommend this property.

The Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We can not say enough about how perfectly located this apartment is. With two metro stops within easy walking distance and a bus stop right outside the front door, you have complete access to the entire city and beyond. There is an organic grocery store (Yes! Organic Market) within walking distance as well as the Eastern Market which has a nice selection of fresh produce and fish. We definitely recommend this property if you want a quiet and relaxing place to stay while in DC.

Nice Place, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, very clean basement apartment with all the amenities you will need for a nice stay. Location couldn't be better. Only a few minutes walk to the US Capitol and Supreme Court buildings, and only a few more minutes to the National Mall and its many monuments and museums. Apartment is located in a very nice neighborhood just east of the Capitol. Nearest bus stop is literally right outside the front door, and nearest Metro Rail station just a couple of blocks away at the Eastern Market, a great area with many shops, restaurants and bars. We parked our car on Thursday and didn't use it again until we left on Sunday. The Metro rail and bus system is THE way to get around Washington, not very expensive and very little waiting time for busses and trains. Apartment's location is in a very populated residential neighborhood, however it was surprisingly quiet for it's location. Very nice, friendly and accommodating owners who live right upstairs but completely respected our privacy. We plan to visit DC again and would definitely choose this place again.
