I purchased this property to be my primary residence in Washington DC. I lovingly and professionally restored this property to bring out the charm of this gorgeous historic rowhouse while including modern 21st century luxury features. I lived in this exact same apartment for several years until moving out of town recently.

Bill Powers purchased this apartment in 2002

The location is unbeatable and the block is gorgeous! I wanted something that was quintessentially Capitol Hill, in the heart of this historic neighborhood and on a tree-lined block with other beautiful homes.

Quite simply, the access from this house is too good to be true! I can easily walk to dozens of restaurants, bars and shops as well as many of the nation's finest monuments, museums and memorials. The Capital South Metro station is half a block away and can have me in most other parts of DC within 15-20 minutes or at the airport (DCA) in 30 minutes. When I need to drive, the house is just three blocks from the freeway (I-395).

My family and I spent 6 nights at this apartment, which is ideally located for tourists who want to focus their visit on the main attractions of DC -- the Capitol, Library of Congress, and the Smithsonian museuams. The apartment is located in the lovely Capitol Hill neighborhood of the city. The apartment is very clean and well appointed. We were able to purchase some very good and fresh food at the Eastern Market to prepare for breakfast and dinner for a couple of nights. Good food at a terrific value. There is also a small, expensive convenience market up the street but still less expensive than going out every night. The apartment had everything needed to make these meals. We also took advantage of the washing/dryer. We were able to pack very light and do landry in DC before continuing our trip to New York. It would recommend to the owner, however, that he provide written instructions on how to use the washing machine. The first time I used it, I put the detergent in the wrong compartment, so the clothes did not actually get clean. Maybe taping the instructions to the top of the counter about the washer or on the inside of the closet door in the bathroom would be helpful. Finally, I would be remiss if I did not mention that the apartment is a garden apartment and there is another apartment above it. When we were there, it was quite noisy, and we could hear virtually every movement made in the apartment above us. If you plan to be out all day and most of the evening, that shouldn't pose a problem. But, if you are like me and like to take an afternoon break and rest up after a long day of walking, the noise above can be disturbing. Other than that, though, we found the apartment to be very comfortable, clean and attractive, with everything that we needed for a week's stay.

My recent stay at this property was PERFECT! The apartment is clean, safe and amenities abound. Beautiful washer and dryer, high end appliances and the master bed was so comfortable! The location was extremely desirable and the metro stop being a 1/2 block away was so convenient! I would definitely recommend this apartment! The owner was very accommodating for me and my two kids. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Rented Bill's flat so we'd have somewhere to stay while we moved our daughter into her apartment (less than a mile away) for her DC internship. Comfortable, stylish apartment. We were there so briefly we hardly used the kitchen but it's very well outfitted and looked like you could cook as much or as little as desired given the nice walking distance to Barracks Row and its myriad restaurants. Delicious tapas at Cava Mezze (everything was delectable but the brioche dessert with ouzo cream was noteworthy). Fun, unusual for we suburbanites, dinner at Banana Cafe. The pork Mofongo was HUGE (two of us didn't get half-way through it) and very tasty. I also must mention the wonderful perk of the rental including a Parking Permit good for Capitol Hill. Truly it's one of the reasons I chose this apartment over another. We had no trouble parking right in front or across from the apartment and were able to drive over to our daughter's place and park there to unload. Thanks so much, Bill, for providing that service. If you'd like to be on a really pretty block that was quiet and safe but within walking distance of so much that DC has to offer, you can't go wrong here. Thanks.

Perfect Honeymoon Location

We booked this rowhouse rental less than a month before our wedding when our previous plans were cancelled due to the B&B we had booked closing its doors permanently. Finding this apartment was the perfect solution to our desperate situation!

When we arrived, we were blown away by the beautiful, cozy feel of the place, the privacy of it, and the UNBELIEVABLE location! A skilled baseball player could probably land a baseball in the lawn of the Capitol Building from the driveway of this place. It's about a block and a half from Capitol South Metro, which was incredibly convenient for everywhere we wanted to go. It's also walking distance from the Capitol Building, the Library of Congress, Supreme Court building, etc. There are FANTASTIC restaurants just minutes away (Granville Moore's and Ted's Bulletin became our two favorites). The bed and furniture are comfy, the kitchen is great and very functional, and everything about the place makes you feel like you're right at home. And it's QUIET.

Bill was phenomenal to work with and so attentive to any needs, questions, etc. We couldn't have asked for someone more helpful.

We are definitely going to return to this place. It's a gem.
