More About Capitol Hill Real Estate
Capitol Hill is also the oldest and largest residential historic area featuring an eclectic mix of row houses of different styles and architecture. Ornate Italian models exist next to early 19th century manor houses and federal townhouses. On some streets the late 19th century press brick row houses dominate, many of which are adorned with decorative elements combining Richardsonian and Queen Anne motifs.
Historic landmarks include not only the United States Capitol building set atop a hill overlooking the the National Mall, but also the Senate and House office buildings, the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court building, and Marine Barracks. Pennsylvania Avenue is the main non-residential corridor of the neighborhood and the "go-to" place for residents for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Another popular destination is Eastern Market -- the oldest working public market in DC, where merchants sell fresh meat and produce.
