Exceptional, Traditional Renovation!

They say timing is everything on Capitol Hill. For years to come your friends will be toasting your impeccable timingwhen your good fortune and this three bedroom, 2,128 sq.ft. home came on the market simultaneously at 1100 E Street NE.

An exceptional traditionally restored home, L’Enfant trust will be impressed! Preserving the traditional floor plan, enhanced with modern amenities & fixtures, have blended into a unique stunning home. The visual appeal of this semi-detached Wardman porch front is commanding, with a corner lot, perched well above street level and its’ noise and clamor, but easily accessible, with its landscaped lot, and views of the beautiful nearby homes and community park.

The front has a wide, sitting or rocking, porch; a Ring camera, and a wide, leaded glass doorway leading to a bright traditional entrance foyer and ergonomic (wide!) stairs! The original, narrow-width, oak floors are flawless, shown by the pure sunlight that pours in through the arched Pella windows and you can look up forever to the 10-foot-high ceilings. Space and abundance are hallmarks of every room. , woodwork is oak & chestnut in light colors, arched windows by Pella w/ plantation shutters for lumen control & privacy.

Am antique ‘wavy glass’ pocket door separates the Living Room from the v. large Dining Room with its many west-facing windows. The dream kitchen is completely modern, renovated by Capitol Kitchens, w/ coffered ceilings, large granite island (so big, its almost a continent!), Viking appliances, and dual farmhouse sink. But, in addition, there is a wet bar, wine cooler, fireplace, and walk-in pantry. The attached screen porch leads to a private brick patio, for a dedicated gas grill perfect for grilling, plus via stairs, access to the large, open mud room and the 2-car garage.

Returning to the foyer, one can find a powder room, and an interior stairwell to the Lower level apartment. First, up the elegant stairwell are the sleeping rooms. The front owners suite is bright and spacious, with a designer bath that contains bothclawfoot tub and walk-in shower, as well as twin basins and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom is currently configured as an office, with (removable!) ‘partners’ desks & bookcases. The back bedroom has windows north and west, making this bright bedroom a joy, and is next to the laundry and second bath.

Downstairs (now re-connected!) has a front entrance and exit to the garage. It’s a fully licensed, high ceilinged, 1 bedroom apartment with designer kitchen, private laundry and the coolest shower on the Hill. While the current owners earned $30K via AirBnB, if you would prefer, it makes a perfect in- and law, or guest suite.

The Garage is double, high-gated (and possibly higher!) and is heated, while the driveway can handle two more! Redundancies require restating, this home is a treasure to see, primarily looking for eyes to quality & comfort. It is absolutely move-in ready with a lovely color palette, custom shutters, solid Chestnut doors and beautifully engraved antique brassware…no detail has been forgotten or ignored.

It’s time to thank your lucky stars: you could be the fourth owners of this 100-year-old home and move into an established, friendly neighborhood.
