You'll experience our Capitol Hill village as the locals do, from your perch in the beautifully renovated carriage house of this historic home. Leave your car in our off-street parking and get to know the heart of Washington, DC.
Renovated in 2015 and beautifully decorated, this separate entrance carriage house has hardwood floors, high ceilings and everything you’ll need for your stay on the Hill. The bedroom has a four-poster queen-size bed, dresser, marble vanity and a cozy armchair. The French doors open onto a secret garden, the perfect place to enjoy breakfast. The bathroom is done in creamy Travertine with a large tiled shower. The great room has a day bed with a hidden pop-up trundle bed, two arm chairs, a ladder bar, a flat screen TV and a multi-function antique table: Tucked into an alcove it’s the ideal space to eat a sandwich, work on your laptop or charge your electronics. At mealtime pull it away from the wall and pop up the sides for a table that seats six. Let us know how many bistro dining chairs you’ll need. Along the back wall a fully-outfitted kitchen has a full-size 4-burner stove, sink, dishwasher and 5 ft. refrigerator.
Multiple convenience stores and restaurants are nearby. Larger grocery stores are a 10-15 minute walk, as are historic Eastern Market and the more hipster Union Market. The carriage house is a 10 minute walk to the start of the National Mall where are located many, many museums and monuments.

Other things to note
We have lived on Capitol Hill for decades and would love to help with any questions, concerns or advice.
No pets and no smoking inside the apartment. Capitol Hill is a residential neighborhood so quiet enjoyment of the premises is appreciated.

Marguerite is from New Orleans where she met and married an Irishman from Washington. They moved to DC, into the Capitol Hill house where Tom grew up, and in 1971 they moved to the house on the corner where he had helped in the garden as a child. Tom and Marguerite have been lifelong journalists and raised a family of writers, artists and teachers here. Marguerite just retired (at 80+) from her family advice column of 35 years. She is enjoying her freedom and sharing the apartment in this wonderful house with visitors to Washington.
