Description

OPEN HOUSE: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 9TH 1PM TO 4PM.

Upgrade your lifestyle in this renovated, loft-style home!

Welcome to the Masonic Temple Condominiums, a boutique style building located in the Stanton Park neighborhood of Capitol Hill just a short walk to Eastern Market (blue/orange) metro or Union Station (red) metro and just 2 short blocks from vibrant H Street.

This wonderful 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has been renovated from top to bottom and lovingly maintained by this owner for the past 11 years. With brilliant hardwood floors, 13.5 foot ceilings, and 8.5 foot (newer) windows letting in tremendous natural light, this home has a flair for the dramatic. Add in the wood-burning fireplace and you’re ready for an evening with Cary Grant. Or is that Ryan Gosling?

The new kitchen was designed with tasteful finishes : shaker-style cabinets, black granite counters, stainless appliances and heated, contemporary tile floors with a breakfast bar pass through into the dining area. What a great spot for casual dining!

With two levels and an updated full bath on each, living couldn’t be easier in this space. Other convenient features inside the property include Elfa custom closets and a washer and dryer in-unit. The HVAC was replaced in 2013. A complete list of renovations is in the property.

You’re so centrally located at this address that walkscore.com rated it 92 out of 100 given its proximity to the shops and restaurants of H Street, Eastern Market, Barracks Row and Union Station. Or walk Fido to Lincoln Park or Stanton Park. Capitol Hill is very walk- and dog-friendly.

The four-story Beaux Arts styled Masonic Temple building was built in 1910 and converted to 17 condominium residences in 1991.  The building is pet-friendly and FHA approved with low condo fees and an available parking spot for rent in the building.

Capitol Hill

Before the hot air of bureaucracy settled over Capitol Hill in 1791, the area was rural farmland better known as Jenkins Hill. While Capitol Hill may not represent the “true center” of the District, it has been the center of the American political experience since 1791, when Pierre L’Enfant chose it as the site for the nation’s “Congress House.”

Capitol Hill is situated in both the NE and SE quadrants. It is one of the oldest residential communities in D.C. From its inception, the area surrounding the U.S. Capitol was a desirable location for Congressman and Senators to set up temporary residence. It is home to a number of American landmarks, including the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress, and luminaries like John Phillip Sousa, Frederick Douglass and J. Edgar Hoover. The Capitol Hill Historic District is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Quality of Life:

Capitol Hill is the largest residential historic district in the District. The street plan remains a testament to L’Enfant’s vision; wide avenues feature lines of well-maintained row houses reflecting a range of different styles, from stately, Federal townhomes to smaller frame residences.

While many of the Hill’s residents still seek temporary living accommodations, there are many who make Capitol Hill their permanent “headquarters.” Those who stake a claim have unprecedented access to an eclectic mix of contemporary restaurants and boutiques. The National Mall and the Smithsonian Museums are only a short walk away. Eastern Market, which features fresh food, craft stands and other artisanal booths, attracts a considerable crowd on the weekends, especially during the spring and summer months.

Getting Around:

Democracy rules; Capitol Hill is a pedestrian-friendly community open to all. There are two metro stops on the Blue and Orange lines at Capitol South and Eastern Market. Like most D.C. neighborhoods, reliable buses ferry residents between different parts of the city.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 10 miles
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 30 miles
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 35 miles
