Capitol Hill, one of the oldest residential communities inWashington, D.C., takes its name from the hill that rises in the center of Washington and extends eastward. Stretching behind the U.S. Capitol Building, Capitol Hill real estate started with a small boarding house for members of Congress. Today, this historic district is made up of more than 150 square miles and diverse neighborhoods.

Capitol Hill real estate sits in Southeast and NortheastWashington, D.C. It is bounded by the Anacostia River to the east, the Southeast/Southwest Freeway and Washington Navy Yard to the south, and H Street to the north. Every year the Capitol Hill Restoration Society holds a popular house and garden tour. Residents and visitors alike take to the community’s brick sidewalks to view the Richardsonian, Beaux-Arts, Queen Anne, and Federal architecture representative of Capital Hill. Capital Hill real estate offerings also include luxurious townhouses built in recent years.

Capitol Hill real estate is becoming an ever-more popular choice for people looking to buy homes in Washington DC. Real estate investors and home buyers alike will find an attractive selection of industrial property, commercial real estate, and homes for sale.
