A Two-Story Sunroom on the Hill

This three-bedroom Capitol Hill home has a large wrap-around porch, garage parking and a two-story glass sunroom off the rear of the property. The sunroom was built off the back of the original home, so there is a second-floor balcony that looks down on the seating area. Inside, the home is filled with dark wood trim that is typical of older homes on the Hill. The kitchen is on the smaller side, but most of the bedrooms upstairs are spacious. A long driveway runs along the side of the home.

A Candy Store Turned Home Near Lincoln Park

This two-bedroom home on the Hill was originally built in 1865 and used as a candy store. The red shutters and door against the blue facade still give the home a bright, candy-like feel. The house has an open living space with built-in shelving. The updated kitchen has a mix of open shelving and foggy glass-walled cabinetry. The lower level expands the home’s living area and while it’s currently being used as a playroom, the rectangular space could be used for a variety of different purposes.
