Best New Listings: The Capitol Hill Edition

by Mark Wellborn

In this week’s edition of Best New Listings, we look at a couple of nice new properties to hit the market in Capitol Hill over the past few days.

Million-Dollar Row House Near Lincoln Park For Under A Million


This three-bedroom row house near the southwest corner of Lincoln Park was carefully renovated by an owner who wanted to restore many of the property’s original features, including the exposed brick, the heart of pine floors, and all the mill work and molding around the doors and windows. The main level is quite deep, split up into a living area, kitchen and dining area. Off the back of this level is a deck made of Brazilian hardwood that leads to a small yard. The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, double closets and a bathroom with dual vanities, a skylight and pocket doors. Lastly, there is an over-sized garage in the rear of the property that is large enough for an SUV. For the full listing, click here.

Artist’s Loft Meets Master Bedroom in Shaker-Like Row House


The Shaker style of architecture came from the thinking that every object in a home should have a function and that decoration was unnecessary. This 1,700 square-foot two-bedroom row house near the Senate in Capitol Hill seems to have been designed with those tenets in mind. The home has an almost minimalist feel and the owners wanted a “stem to stern” point of view, so when you open the front door, you can see straight north over the tops of homes in the area to the dome of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Our favorite room is the master bedroom that is so wide open that it almost feels like an artist’s loft. The home also has an enormous basement and a small backyard.

    These properties are both proof that Capitol Hill has the best homes in the city.

    Saw the rowhouse at yesterday’s OH and the third bedroom is a joke! Not enough cabinetry in the kitchsen either. It’s just too small to be on par with the lovely (million dollar) Victorians of CH.

    the links to the properties don’t seem to be functioning properly

    Thanks. We have fixed the first link and are working on the second link. It should be working within the hour.
