Best property of the week: 716 13th Street NE
“You know that the inside of a jewelry box is always even better than the outside, right ?! This Victorian gem captures as you walk to the corner – you’ve seen bay windows lining each wall – but go inside and you’ll see much more. Four levels of space, including an atrium with a floating staircase that creates a sense of openness. Parquet floors, heated tiled floors in the basement and kitchen, marble floors by the basement fireplace and many Palladian windows that let in light from the inside. This is your new home. Inside it is safe and confidential. Full granite kitchen counters with gas hob and heated tiled floors are all the gem of the house. Imagine how well you will cook and dine here all year round, especially in winter. The configuration can be any – currently two bedrooms, one recently renovated bathroom on the upper level; one guest bathroom on the lower level, with two levels remaining for guests or for you to pamper yourself: work area, gym, studio as there are over 2,000 feet of space here. Included is a large bonus room in the basement with heated tiled floors. If you prefer outdoor activities, you have the choice of sitting in the front garden to visit neighbors, grilling in the backyard next to the kitchen, or sipping wine on your private Trex upper deck. There are so many options. It’s convenient to get to everything on Capitol Hill and H Street, with a trolleybus stop at the end of your short block that will take you to Whole Foods or even Union Station a few stops from the hotel. In the spring and summer, you can take a short walk to the farmers’ market or, if you prefer, have tea while watching the market develop. The best of Washington DC charm and convenience for everything – 10-15 minutes to Maryland or Virginia and 15 minutes from the airport with good traffic! “
