004_647_lexington_pl_ne_158377_163353-200x300Originally built in 1913, this spectacular and unusual 25’-wide Rowhome was entirely renovated down to the studs and converted to a 2-family home in 2003.  Since then, the current owner has completed countless upgrades to the property including a gorgeous expansion and upgrade of the kitchen, attractive hardscaping of the rear patio and steps, a roll-up garage door, new vanities, tile and hardware in the bathrooms, custom built-ins, and more.

The main level of the home boasts an inviting entry foyer, spacious living room, large combined dining room and kitchen, and connecting den.  Special features include hardwood floors, gas fireplace, chair and crown molding, arched passageways, tray ceiling, custom window treatments, recessed lighting, and a coat closet.
010_647_lexington_pl_ne_158377_163353-300x200The magnificent new kitchen features timeless finishes including beautiful flat-front and shaker-style cabinetry, stylish glass-door cabinet fronts, chrome hardware, marble counters, and stone backsplash.  The expanded kitchen features  two sinks (large oversized every day sink and bar sink), six-burner Viking stove with exhaust hood, pot-filler, in-cabinet microwave, French-door with bottom-freezer refrigerator, expanded countertop with bar seating, and food pantry.

The second level has a large landing and features three bedrooms including the Master Suite, a beautiful hall bath, and the laundry and mechanical closet. The spacious Master Suite features a sitting-area complete with custom built-ins boasting a gas fireplace, storage, and entertainment console.  The bedroom has two large closets and a gorgeous en-suite bath with decorator finishes including new vanity and fixtures, a Jacuzzi tub, and separate custom shower.

The third level offers a fantastic bonus room that is ideal for an office, craft room, or play area.  It features a large closet and also access to an abundance of storage.  Access to the rooftop with views of The Capitol and Washington Monument is found through the storage area in the attic.
018_647_lexington_pl_ne_158377_163353-300x200The legal, income-producing, lower-level apartment is separately metered for electric and features an English basement entrance.  The two bedroom, self-contained apartment boasts a full kitchen, hall bathroom, and storage/laundry room.  The apartment also has an egress from the rear bedroom that leads to the back patio.

It’s no surprise that this home has a WalkScore of 90, a “Walker’s Paradise.”   With easy access to all of Capitol Hill including The Capitol, Senate/House office buildings, Stanton Park, Eastern Market, the H Street Corridor, and more, you’ll love the convenience this location offers.  In addition to a plethora of restaurants, bars, and shopping, you’ll appreciate being just blocks from the new Giant Grocery store (3rd and H St NE).   Commuting has never been easier with Metrorail, buses, and trains located just 5 blocks away at Union Station.
