Interested buyers looking to live close to D.C. power centers won’t get a whole lot closer to them than this light-filled studio is. Located at 101 North Carolina Ave. SE, the roughly 400-square-foot unit is just a few blocks south of the U.S. Capitol, the Library of Congress, and the Supreme Court.

It’s also nestled in a converted carriage house off the courtyard of a castle-like, five-story condo building called the Carolina on the Hill. According to real estate agency DC Condo Boutique, the larger building was originally constructed in 1900 “as a dormitory for single women working in DC [and was] known as the Saint Catherine’s Home for Working Girls” before being converted in 2005.

“It feels like a mini house,” Compass broker Dan Swayze says of the unit. “We recently created the bed nook by converting the oversized entry area and using the old patio door for egress. The new bed nook now fits a queen sized bed and two nightstands.”

In addition to the private patio in the back, the studio has high ceilings, wood floors, and an updated kitchen and bathroom. Pets are allowed, and the community has a laundry room.

The property is a block away from the Capitol South Metro. It’s also near a series of Capitol Hill green spaces: Garfield Park, Folger Park, Marion Park, Seward Square, and the Spirit of Justice Park.

Per Refin, HOA dues are $377 a month and the unit last sold for $252,000 in 2013.
