The iconic Deer House is considered by many to be the premier residence on Capitol Hill – just seven blocks east of the US Capitol.
Constructed for and by stone mason Antonio Malnati in 1903 by architect George S. Cooper, the majestic stone and brick facade features a sandstone entry stairway, front entrance with an ornate stone pediment, beautifully carved keystones and distinctive stepped-gable party walls. The double-width lot allows a graceful (and rare) side porch and courtyard featuring a hand-painted mural that transforms the space into a veritable Garden of Eden. The site of countless garden parties, weddings, fundraisers, Halloween extravaganzas and more, this space is unrivaled on Capitol Hill. From the elegant entry hall to the spacious and bright living room, the exquisite chestnut-paneled dining room and the massive and beautifully functional kitchen, the home is tailor-made for gatherings large or small. Five bedrooms and three bathrooms occupy the second and third floors. The master bedroom suite features 2 walk-in closets and en-suite bathroom. A large in-law suite with two bedrooms and one full bathroom and additional storage for the main house including a walk-in wine cellar are located on the terrace level. There is a detached two car heated garage & private driveway that can accommodate an additional two cars. Beautifully renovated and impeccably maintained by its current owner, the Deer House is an architectural masterpiece awaiting the next chapter in its storied history.
