A Bright Rowhouse Near Stanton Park

A diamond-patterned wrought iron staircase leads up to this Victorian turn-of-the-century renovated rowhouse on Capitol Hill.

The square bay also creates a seating area in the master bedroom, which contains a den-like office nook. The basement has a kitchenette, full-sized windows in both the front bay and the rear bedroom, and access to the backyard, where a deck overlooks a stone-paved patio.

A Bungalow Where Each Bedroom Has a Story

The house also has a wide front porch with a bench swing at its front door, a covered porch that runs the length of the house along the rear, an expansive backyard and a detached shed.

Another set of stairs leads to the wraparound private roof terrace. The unit also comes with two parking spaces.
