Pastoral and Pretty on Capitol Hill

Where I live on Capitol Hill, it’s constantly humming. It’s even more than a little kooky at times. But elsewhere on the hill, people live a more quiet existence. Over on 20th Avenue East, for example, this freshly listed 1920’s home feels like a world away.

Surrounded by shrubbery cultivated over decades, both on the property and up and down the long-established street, one can imagine feeling a little less hectic once arriving home here. Just sit on the porch apiece. All will be right with the world. The house itself has been beautifully preserved over the years with wonderful original details like coved ceilings, mahogany millwork, multi-paned windows, oak floors, and a Batchelder tile fireplace in the living room.

It has generously proportioned rooms including a romantic master suite with vaulted ceilings.

Lots of updates and great spaces throughout. This is really such a pretty one.

935 20th Avenue East. Three bedrooms, two and one-half baths. Interior square footage 3050 feet on a rare 7020 square foot lot. Garage. Asking price $925,000. Nice!

The grounds will wow you but don’t forget to check out the rest of the house here. It’s ALL good. 

Open tomorrow, Thursday, August 19th, 11-1 p.m. and Sunday, August 22, 1-4 p.m.
