$1,175,000 520 8TH STREET NE, WASHINGTON, DC 20002
1st Open Sun 5/2 2-4pm All covid protocols followed. See end for list. Spacious and FLEXIBLE, this 3BR/2.5BA house with patio, pergola, and PARKING provides 2110sf of living space on 2 large levels, plus a 450sf storage basement (all per pro floorplans). The middle of 3 unique houses that sit significantly back from the street with deep front yards and historic hairpin iron fences, this clapboard beauty feels calm and private. A large entry foyer accommodates an oversized bench, and opens into the very large main level. Designed for entertaining, while still retaining an intimate feel, the gracious open plan living and dining area at front feature ornate cornices, a working woodburning fireplace, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, and a coat closet. Note that the DR chandelier does not convey. Beyond the dining area are a discreetly-located powder room and a sitting area with 2 windows (possible future family room) that opens to the extremely large open plan kitchen. There are granite countertops for miles, cabinets galore, a peninsula breakfast bar to chat with the chef while the magic happens, and 2 huge closets (one has full size washer dryer) flanking a double French door to the backyard oasis. Step outside and be transported to the country without leaving home, with a deck for al fresco dining underneath a grapevine-covered pergola and mature trees all around. Grill or relax on the fully-fenced brick patio, bordered by peonies and perennials and a cherry tree overhanging your PARKING PAD just beyond the gate out back. Cyclists will appreciate the clever covered bike storage behind the pergola, too. Up the skylit stairs are 3 large bedrooms, and each has a large wall of closets. The rear ensuite primary bedroom with 4 windows is largest, and has a separate sitting/office area too. Super-flexible, this room is currently used as a guest room/yoga studio plus a large office WFH area at back. The spacious ensuite rear bathroom has a vanity, 2 closets and glass stall shower. At the front of the house, the 2nd ensuite bedroom accommodates a queen bed plus a desk for extra WFH space, and that ensuite bathroom features a tub and vanity. The middle 3rd bedroom has an oversized window and plenty of space for a bed and desk, too. Enjoy living in the Capitol Hill Historic District, across the street from Capital BikeShares and a small market, 2 blocks to Sherwood Rec track and playground, 4 blocks to the new WholeFoods and all the excellent shops, bars and restaurants of H Street, 4 blocks to Stanton Park, and a short stroll to Union Station, Red Bear Brewery/REI as well as Eastern Market and many other Hill faves. Carpe Diem! Max 2 groups at a time. All parties must wear masks at all times, maintain social distance, and provide CDC contact tracing info for entry to property. Thank you for understanding and complying as we try to keep everyone safe and healthy.
