Situated on a corner lot at 252 10th Street NE in Capitol Hill, this three-bedroom home has a row of large windows allowing in copious sunlight and will soon hit the market for $985,000. The home, which features three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, has been updated throughout.

Sitting on an 825-square-foot lot, the two-level home comes with exposed brick, original hardwood floors, and an open living plan. There are arched brick fireplaces upstairs and downstairs. The kitchen boasts modern appliances, built-in shelves, a sizable pantry, and quartz counters. The upper level has refinished antique pine floors in addition to laundry.

The home also comes with some neighborhood history. “From 1915-1944, the first floor was Johnston’s Market, which is displayed in gold lettering on the glass transom above the front door,” according to the listing agents. “Mr. Johnston and his nine children lived in the rear portion of the home and upstairs, while operating the corner market. The downstairs still has some vestiges of its former life, including the original meat locker in the living room.”

The home includes a new HVAC and fresh landscaping too. Outside, there is a private patio, a covered veranda, and a fenced garden. The property last sold for $780,000 in 2015, public records show. It is within walking distance of Eastern Market, the H Street NE corridor, and Union Station as well as Lincoln Park. Todd Vassar and Eric Broermann with Compass are the listing agents, and open houses are being planned for May 4 and 5, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
