Nestled between the Capitol and Lincoln Park on coveted East Capitol Street NE and steps to Eastern Market, sits one of Capitol Hill’s Grand Dames, The Eastgate. This turn of the century Federal-style residence has been meticulously restored, retaining exquisite original period details that have been blended perfectly with more modern updates. Entering the front of the property's iron gate, you are greeted with stately gardens and a gorgeous magnolia tree. The interior of the home is an impeccable 4BD/3.5BA residence that has been carefully and beautifully designed by nationally recognized design firm Huffman & Huffman. Upon entry, you notice the soaring ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors. The main level boasts stunning, open entertaining spaces featuring a gourmet kitchen, a spacious living room with gas fireplace, and an enormous formal dining room, and half bath. The upper-level features three generous bedrooms and two full baths; the striking primary has an ensuite bath. Completing the upper level is a full-sized stackable washer/dryer. The lower level one-bedroom English basement has been transformed into a stunningly beautiful lounge, complete with a concierge station/bar which conjures up images of a bygone era. No design detail is left unturned, including custom leather-lined walls, artist painted silver leafed ceilings, a hidden temperature-controlled wine cellar and humidor cleverly tucked behind a magazine rack wall, and more! This elegant and comfortable lower level is currently configured for exterior access only, which makes this space perfect for out-of-town guests to enjoy their private space or to host a special event for friends or clients. To complete this offering there is a secured 2-car parking pad with pavers, which easily converts to outdoor entertaining space. All of this and more in short walking proximity to the US Capitol, the Library of Congress, Eastern Market, Folger Shakespeare Library and Theater, Union Station and Lincoln Park. Convenient to some of DC’s and the country’s best restaurants (8th Street SE, Barrack’s Row, the Navy Yard and Penn Ave corridors), grocery stores (Whole Foods, Harris Teeter and Trader Joes) coffee shops, bike and nature trails, gyms and Eastern Market Metro with a 91-walk score.
