There’s something truly magical about the Capitol Hill neighborhood in the summer, especially on the roof deck at 902 East Capitol. From here you can see the orange and yellow lights start to dance over the marble Capitol dome as the sun sets. Below, families are walking their dogs, co-workers are heading to new eateries and foodies are strolling over to Eastern Market. It really is summertime in the District.
Beyond the dining, boutique shops and longtime watering holes, it’s hard not to ponder the grand history of this neighborhood, and 902 East Capitol Street NE is deeply-rooted in Capitol Hill’s story. The row house was originally built in January 1896. The original marble fireplaces, hardwood floors and Romanesque architecture could tell a narrative of past residents, families and even members of Congress.
Just as this district evolved, so did the row house. The historic exterior and interior were renovated and remodeled in 2018-2019. All 4,066 finished square feet, including six bedrooms and five baths, were redesigned to meet the modern conveniences of today.
The options at this home are limitless. Host a dinner party in the large, open kitchen which is outfitted with quartz countertops and top-of-the-line SubZero and Wolf appliances. Invite friends over for an outdoor happy hour on the balcony, patio or rooftop. Relax in a secluded master suite, complete with a full bath and freestanding soaking tub. Long-term guests can stay in a fully finished lower level, which has an open media room, fireplace, custom wet bar, and a private office or bedroom.
Luxury really is in the details. During the extensive rehabilitation of the property, historic character-defining elements were preserved while modernizing the interior and flow throughout each room. Four zone high-efficiency climate control, programmable lighting throughout, specially designed ambient LED cove lighting, and an internal penthouse leading to the roof deck are incorporated seamlessly with no element overlooked.
When dusk settles on a warm summer night and street lights start to glimmer, 902 East Capitol’s front stoop is illuminated in the welcoming orange and red glow from its signature stained glass, transom window. The historic charm of this rowhouse preserves the story of its past and, no doubt, its future will be filled with more warm memories.
