This immaculately renovated corner home in historic Capitol Hill has incredible natural light and a unique history. With old world charm, it is tastefully updated with modern amenities and a Scandinavian touch. Sunny and spacious, this elegant home features an open-format living and dining space on the main floor, perfect for entertaining, with easy access to the garden through the front or side doors. An historical gem, it has been restored to its former glory with refinished original hardwood floors, original brick fireplace, exposed brick wall, and a long bank of windows with a lovely view. The exterior of the home includes a covered veranda, a private patio area, and fenced-in garden. From 1915-1944, the first floor was Johnston~s Market, which is displayed in gold lettering on the glass transom above the front door. 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. In the 1970~s, a total renovation turned the meat locker into a wet bar (while keeping the meat hooks and old compressor) and added a skylight above the staircase for even more light. The renovators also rebuilt the fireplaces and arches with original brick. The current owners have extensively renovated the home since they bought it, including newer HVAC and electrical, fresh paint inside and out, and landscaping. The meticulously renovated eat-in kitchen features quartz countertops, a large pantry, open shelving and plenty of cabinet storage. A powder room is conveniently tucked away beneath the staircase. The upper level of the home offers 3 bedrooms, one that includes a fireplace, a renovated full bath, laundry, and refinished antique pine floors. This home is the perfect mix of modern amenities blended with charm and character. Located in the heart of Capitol Hill between Stanton and Lincoln Park, it is just a few blocks to Eastern Market Metro and Union Station, and just ten blocks to the Supreme Court and the Capitol. This particular block of 10th street was ceremonially named Outlaw Way in 2018, after beloved neighborhood champions, William and Pocahontas Outlaw. The current owners are looking for new owners to love it as much as they have. And they have loved it well!
