This Capitol Hill townhome offers a piece of D.C.’s architectural history, asks $849K

From the ironwork to the hardwood flooring, this c. 1900-built residence has a ton of original details to offer

Over 50 years ago, ironwork vaguely reminiscent of the kind seen in New Orleans was salvaged and transported from its location near the White House to this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom townhome in Capitol Hill. Originally, the ironwork was located in the long-gone Raleigh Hotel, which was designed by notable architect Henry Janeway Hardenbergh, the same architect behind the Willard Hotel and New York City’s Plaza Hotel. Now, it's located on the front balcony and fence of this listing.

This Thursday, the townhome will land on the market with an asking price of $849,000. Constructed in c. 1900, the listing boasts original details on the inside, such as hardwood flooring, stairs, fireplace mantel, and crown molding. Other highlights include that the residence offers two kitchens and a "man cave," or work shed at the rear of the property.

The first open house will be this Sunday, October 16 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The listing agent is Jeanne Harrison of Compass. For more photos, look below.
