A few blocks from Eastern Market in a historic Capitol Hill alley, Watkins Alley is a beautifully designed, 44-residence community of new townhomes from Ditto Residential. The property—which is close to the Potomac Ave metro and steps from new grocers, athletic fields and playgrounds—has just ten townhomes remaining for sale.
Watkins Alley blends perfectly with the historic townhome aesthetic of the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Pass through the portico and residents are transported to a new community of vintage industrial architecture. The homes are centered around two landscaped courtyards that incorporate white birch, maples, bluestone seating walls, sea grasses and cone flowers. At dusk, the artfully-lit space is one of the most enchanting and inviting spaces on the Hill.
Two home types remain: 2,300-square-foot, three-bedroom and two-den townhouses; and 2,400-square-foot, three-bedroom townhouses with elevators. Pricing ranges from $1.2M to $1.6M and move-ins are throughout the summer. Appointments for tours can be booked via the website at WatkinsAlley.com.
Watkins Alley interiors are modern and streamlined. Each townhome features nine foot ceilings, five-inch natural white oak flooring, main-levels unencumbered by walls plus several work-from-home spaces. All are built to LED Silver standards.
Kitchens feature custom flat-panel European cabinets with soft-close drawers, Calacatta quartz countertops, subway tile backsplashes, LED under-cabinet lighting, pull-out drawer microwaves and stainless steel, fully-integrated Bosch appliances. Bathrooms feature frameless glass enclosed walk-in showers, chrome Kohler fixtures, porcelain wall tile, Calacatta Vintage Lappato floor tile and dual vanities.
Watkins Alley is located across from Watkins Elementary School and is close to a variety of desirable neighborhood amenities: Neighborhood Restaurant Group’s foodhall The Roost, Eastern Market, Safeway grocery, the Potomac Avenue Metro Station and many more.
