ARare Offering in the Heart of Capitol Hill.

Situated on one of Capitol Hill’s most sought after blocks, 636 A Street, SE is a classic example of circa 1880s bayfront

Italianate Victorian architecture. Filled with charm and lovingly restored, the property was a favorite of the

Capitol Hill House and Garden Tour in 2002. The property was also featured on HGTV Restore America and in

Country Home magazine. Located within the Brent Elementary School boundary, the property is ideally situated

on a quiet street, yet in the heart of the Hill. A short stroll to the Capitol Dome, a short walk to Eastern Market and

the metro, as well as close proximity to all the Hill shops and restaurants, makes 636 A Street in the epicenter of

all that is charming in the nation’s Capitol.

This elegant property features light-filled principal rooms and offers an unusually deep garden filled with mature

plantings and landscaping. The rear two level carriage house with a private entrance is a rare and valued offering

on Capitol Hill. The many original historic details lend elegance to the interior spaces. High ceilings, bay windows,

chair rails, numerous fireplaces and period lighting are just a few of the intact interior details.

Two full bedrooms on the upper floor feature elegant

mantles and spacious rooms. A third bedroom could be

used as an office or nursery. A full bath is also located on

this level.

The lower level boosts a full kitchen with walk-out space

directly to the bricked patio. A large family room here

also features a fireplace and south-facing bay windows

providing an exceptionally sunny space. A second front

entry, high ceilings and bathroom on this floor ensure

imminently livable space, as does numerous storage

areas. Currently set with a breakfast nook and bonus

family room, an alternate set up could be as a formal

dining space, and reverting the main level to usage as a

double parlor.
