Only on rare occasions does a home come along that is so astonishing in its uniqueness, so unparalleled in its size and condition, and so abundant in amenities. 613 Constitution Ave NE is just such a home. Built in 1887, this stunning, semi-detached, grand estate row home, with over 4600sf** across 3 impeccable levels, delivers more than you ever hoped to find on Capitol Hill. Smart, sophisticated, and truly special.
The expansive size is enough to turn heads, but when combined with an uber-convenient location, exceptional condition, "green" energy features, grand entertaining spaces, an in-law suite, and a huge attached 2-car garage, this grande dame instantly becomes the hot topic of conversation and will be among the most sought-after homes on the Hill.
The impressive street presence draws you in w/ the elegant design of the facade's brickwork (professionally re-pointed within the past decade) & period details that remain beautifully intact inside and out. You will immediately be wowed by the huge open-plan formal living & dining spaces, and the bright sunlight streaming in from 3 exposures. It is a perfect space for large-scale entertaining, with easy flow to the private patio for indoor/outdoor entertaining. A wood burning fireplace, charming box bay, exceptionally tall ceilings, and gleaming hard pine floors add to the allure.
Next the beautifully appointed kitchen (renovated in 2019), with ample cabinetry, a large island, quartz counters, top grade stainless steel appliances, and a stunning view of the patio with its flowering trees & plants. This is where a typical Hill home might end, but not here. The kitchen leads to a breakfast room with double glass sliding doors to the private patio, and then beyond to an enormous family room w/ built-in cabinetry and bar, another wood burning fireplace, and a skylight. The large, private brick and slate patio is also accessed from this area and features a built-in grill and raised planting beds. To complete this level, you will find an immense, attached 2-car garage with extra room for a workbench and storage, and a skylight for more natural light. The garage opens to a clean, extra wide brick alley serving only the homes at this end of the block (no cut through), adding to the unique qualities of this home.
Upstairs you’ll find a private, peaceful renovated primary suite, featuring a wall of windows, an elegant en suite full bath w/ double vanity and large walk in shower, and ample closet space. There are 3 add’l bedrooms on the upper level, including a double-sized room at the front of the home that could serve as a 2nd primary suite, and an elegantly upgraded marble hall bath. Washer/Dryer hookup available upstairs.
The lower level offers a separate 2br/1ba in-law suite with front and side exposures, and a CofO. This suite is a perfect add’l space for guests, a home office suite, or an income producing rental. Or, reconnect it to the main house (staircase is still intact).
The home has been diligently and smartly maintained and improved over the past decade, including the incorporation of green features. There are 2 solar panel systems owned & maintained by Tesla, while the homeowner receives the benefits of extremely reduced electric bills. Add’l insulation has been added to parts of the home to make it more energy efficient. There are 5 separate HVAC systems/zones in the home, allowing for efficient management of heating and cooling. Other improvements include recent roof replacements on some sections of the house, extensive repointing of the entire home (incl replacing the original headers w/ steel above the arched windows), the brick patio wall, planter and slate patio, and much more.
Superbly located, this home is a short distance to all the Hill landmarks, including the Capitol, Union Station, Eastern Market, Metros, Stanton and Lincoln Parks, & much more.
This is truly a rare find.
