Welcome to THE JENKINS HILL HOUSE in the Shadow of the US Capitol --a prime location!! This 6BR/6.5BA home is just a few blocks to the U.S. Capitol, House & Senate office buildings, and The Supreme Court. And if you go just a little further you will reach the metro or Union Station. Nearby, is the unbeatable Historic Eastern Market, restaurants, shops and much more. With grand proportions including high ceilings and period details, beautiful tray and tin ceilings, brick walls and stunning multiple fireplaces, this historic home is a rare find on the Hill! It even has a swimming pool! The grand living room and dining room are just perfect for entertaining with so much light and timeless elegance. The eat-in-kitchen is divided into two separate areas--one for cooking and washing dishes; and the other for casual dining and gatherings. Upstairs there are five bedrooms with five baths, some with fireplaces. After going up the stairs to the first landing, the bedroom which is just to the left on this level is currently used as a study for at home working. Mature landscaping radiates curb appeal at the entry to this home. Out back there is a charming side garden leading to the rear courtyard which boasts a rare in-ground swimming pool which is presently covered. When re-opened, it is just delightful, especially on warm summer days. In addition, there is a roof top deck for outdoor dining and entertaining over the garage. There is a separate 1-car garage with driveway (rare find!), and a separate in-law or nanny suite. A coveted address on Historic Capitol Hill!
