Stunning pre-war row house renovation in Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill Residence-Thorsen Construction-01-1 Kindesign

A fascinating pre-war row house was meticulously transformed by Thorsen Construction showcasing traditional interiors, located in Capital Hill, Washington D.C. The residence is situated just a couple of blocks from the capitol and was in need of a major update to preserve its splendid historical presence. The construction team brought in architect Fredrick Taylor to work on the project. A new roof top terrace was added to the third level of the home, clad in IPE. The flooring was refreshed with heart pine wood and custom crafted windows and doors were installed to update and stylize the home. A tastefully designed traditional style kitchen dressed in white was designed by kitchen design studio Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath.

Our Thoughts: We love when a homeowner updates their home to improve both the interior and exterior aesthetics in a way that is very visually appealing throughout. This is the case in this stunning Capital Hill Residence. Our favorite and most notable feature of this renovation project would be the three floor-to-ceiling doors that extends the back of the property. Flanked by columns, the windows seem to really pop, and the lanterns helps to illuminate this historic property. What are your thoughts on this renovation project?
