Capitol Hill is the most prestigious address in Washington, DC and the political center of the nation’s capital with the Capitol Building set atop a hill overlooking the National Mall. Members of Congress and their staff, lobbyists and journalists live on Capitol Hill as well as others who can afford the sometimes steep prices of real estate here. Capitol Hill is the largest residential historic district in Washington, DC with many of its 19th and 20th century row houses listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Union Station (Train Station and shopping mall) is located very nearby and provides plenty of options for shopping and dining.
Housing options on the Hill are varied, apartments and row-houses are more available than single family homes. Many homes are designated to be historic and renovations are on-going. The charm and location can’t be beat. Many row-houses have finished basements that are completely separate units and can be rented out. The real estate market can move quickly and having a top agent to help you navigate either seller or buying is in your best interest. Tracy Tkac – Evers & Co Real Estate
It is not unusual see black sedans chaffering around the politically famous and even to have coffee next to a senator or congressman and very likely the person next to you is a lobbyist.
