Lee Murphy of Washington Fine Properties has listed an exceptional Federal home in the very heart of Capitol Hill at $959,000.

A short stroll to beloved Eastern Market as well as the boutique stores, coffee houses and grocery stores along Pennsylvania Avenue. With a walk-score of 98 out of 100, the home is the definition of a fabulous location!

Filled with charm and well-proportioned space, this 1,870 square foot home is sited on a corner lot and is nearly fully detached from other homes on the block.  The unusual position allows the home to feature light from three exposures: south, east and west.

The property has a lovely side yard that is charmingly private from the old growth ivy-covered fence.  The south facing entrance features mature decorative trees and a garden area.  Deceptively larger than at first glance, the home boasts two large bedrooms, two full bathrooms (master is ensuite), a powder room and bonus flexible space.

On the first floor, there is a spacious, updated kitchen that has copious cabinet space, granite counters and room for a breakfast table. The kitchen also features a decorative fireplace. The living room is anchored by a working fireplace and numerous windows. The dining room offers exposed brick and wide plank wood floors. The powder room on this floor was just remodeled with Carrara marble and new fixtures. Numerous closets and windows are throughout the first floor.

The second floor offers two very nicely sized bedrooms, both with fireplaces. The master bedroom has a wall of upscale built-in closets. The spa-inspired ensuite master bathroom was completely remodeled in 2019 and features beautiful Carrera marble floors, Carrera tiled shower, and dual vanities.

There is an additional second full bathroom on this floor. On the third floor, by using the pull down stairs in the hallway, there is a bonus space that could be used as flexible space or office.

Carine's Bridal Making Masks

April 1, 2020

The team at Carine's Bridal Atelier is sewing and delivering face masks to help with the shortage during this pandemic.  They need your help and have set up a GoFundMe site.


If you can donate funds or fabric (at designated locations) they will be able to make more for our local hospitals.  Please join in the fight against COVID-19.


It’s not OK that our brave healthcare workers are putting themselves at risk while also facing a shortage of medical masks. While treating patients isn’t our skill, sewing certainly is,” says Carine Halabi Krawiec.

They are also asking for material donations to assist with making the masks. 


Materials include:

- vacuum cleaner bag 

- dish cloths

- cotton blend shirt  

- 100% cotton shirts  

- 3/8 elastic

Jack Evans Resigns From D.C. Council

January 8, 2020

The D.C. Council’s longest serving member, Jack Evans resigned from office on Tuesday. The Council was expected to vote to expel him on January 21, 2020 over revelations that he had taken official actions to help developers and businesses that paid his private consulting firm.


“After nearly 30 years of public service to the District of Columbia, I have advised the Board of Elections that I resign my position as Ward 2 Council member on the Council… as of the close of business on Friday, January 17, 2020,” he wrote in a letter to Chairman Phil Mendelson. “I believe Washington, D.C. to be the pride of the nation and I am proud of the contributions I have made in helping create a vibrant city.”


Evans’ three decade career included two unsuccessful runs for mayor, two terms as the chair of Metro’s board, and seven trips as a D.C. delegate to Democratic National Conventions. Over the years, he represented Georgetown at countless ground-breaking events around the city.


Once Evans formally leaves office, the Board of Elections will declare a vacancy and start the process of scheduling a special election to fill the seat.
