A Colonial-Style Rowhouse in the Heart of the Hill

This little rowhouse, built in 1900, sits between two much-larger neighbors on the western edge of Capitol Hill.

The kitchen has a pull-up bar with seating for two and leads out onto a spacious back patio. Upstairs there’s a master bedroom with a fireplace and a second bedroom with exposed beams and a skylight.
