An exceptional opportunity to own the iconic “Sousa House!” Built in 1805, this rare freestanding residence is located in the coveted Eastern Market neighborhood and was the birthplace of celebrated American composer, John Philip Sousa. A timeless brick façade and curving staircase welcome you to the gracious residence. Currently configured as a two-unit property, the main house features a grand parlor with 11’ ceilings and an ornate fireplace. The beautifully remodeled chef’s kitchen boasts a Wolf range and Sub-Zero fridge. Sliding glass doors invite warmth and natural light, opening to an outdoor patio poised for alfresco entertaining. Upstairs, a south-facing primary bedroom is joined by an additional guest bedroom – both serviced by an updated bath with herringbone flooring and modern basin sink. Replete with a legal, lower-level rental unit, the one-bedroom apartment is peppered with period details, including a brick fireplace, antique wood wainscoting, custom built-ins and cobblestone flooring. Just steps to the eateries and boutiques of Barrack’s Row and Eastern Market, the Sousa House is minutes to the weekend farmer’s market and Michelin gems, Rose’s Luxury and Pineapple & Pearls. It is also conveniently located two blocks to Eastern Market Metro’s Orange/Blue lines and three blocks to the I-695 freeway for easy access out of the city. Set in a spectacular neighborhood with a true sense of community, this landmark beauty affords a chance to own a celebrated slice of Capital Hill history.
