Exciting, exhilarating, a retreat in the concrete jungle of the city. Tarzan would stay here.
Escape to Pickford; Pickford Waits for You to join those who’ve discovered the charm of this hidden gem of a street. Pickford residents repute of camaraderie, good times, and yet, still possessing the quietude becoming of a one-way Hill hideaway. It's always been a street of neighbors, where these brick, semi-detached homes once housed city tradesmen as two-unit buildings, many now converted, like 623, into a 3 Bedroom, single-family home (but could be reconfigured again to two units!) Almost 1300 sf, rehabilitated with all new appliances, stone countertops, new stainless appliances, private patio yard, with tall privacy fence, interior, and exterior staircases, decorative window grills, beautiful wood floors, three bedrooms, 2 full baths, laundry, the home has been brought into the 21st century, w/ mini-splits for heating and cooling, Lots of light from the front and side windows, central staircase, and a private side courtyard for outdoor entertaining or just listen to birds sing and zing. A two-story "tree-house-like" deck provides a place in the shade, safe from the scorching summer sun & a place for a winter fire pit or a sizzling grill. Small, perhaps, but wide and well laid out with ample space for family, friends, couples, singles, or solos either reclusive or effusive, 623 Pickford can work for you. Great for biking (93/100) , and within walking (94/100) distance of the US Capitol or Eastern Market, with nearby bike-share. Or the X8 will zip you into town. The scenic trolley can freely transit you from Children's island to Union Station, to catch the METRO, or stopping along for a multitude of menus and venues, dining and drinking, retail stops and shops, Moms' and Pops', Food and pharmacy, clubs and pubs. Buy Here, Buy Now, Buy Smith!
Extra note on the forest like patio, birds excite the early morning light and late evening, a flurry of wings as they seek their perch for the night. The bricked fenced side patio is more useful than most front and rear yards secluding the entrance from prying eyes, allowing solitude as desired or a pleasant party flair when you care.
As Pickford st is accessed by a one way and goes North South to one way G st, many long term Hill residents cannot direct you or your agent, maybe Google knows or Siri.
This is Capitol Hill and being here will soon have you stating, “to hill with the suburbs”
