Description

EXQUISITE VICTORIAN-ERA HOME IN THE HEART OF OLD TOWN'S SOUTHEAST QUADRANT! Lot # 67, one of Alexandria's original 84 numbered lots, was laid out by surveyor John West, Jr. with the assistance of 17-year-old George Washington. Architecturally of the late Federal Period, this sophisticated home has evolved over the years to the glamorous residence that it is today. Uniquely historic and modern, with the best of both worlds. The character and charm of its past: impressive exterior, high ceilings, crown moldings, tall windows, pine floors and two fireplaces -- with a contemporary flair: state-of-the-art kitchen, skylights, a 2-story glass wall, surround sound and dramatic lighting. As you enter through the vestibule you will be welcomed by the sunny living room, separate dining room, comfortable family room, breakfast area and stunning remodeled kitchen. On the second level, the light-filled owners' suite overlooking the courtyard has two pristine baths, a sitting/dressing room, built-in cabinets and closets galore. Two guest rooms, a cedar closet and full bathroom complete this level. The unfinished basement offers plenty of storage. For those that enjoy gardening or entertaining, the expansive tiered garden will capture your heart! Fully fenced, bricked and beautifully landscaped with outdoor speakers and lighting...perfect for relaxing, socializing and dining. Located within 2 blocks of King Street, you are steps from fine food and wine, the farmer's market, boutique shopping, art galleries and the banks of the Potomac River. SHOWN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Garage PARKING available on a monthly basis - 3 minute walk away.

Old Town

Welcome to historic Old Town, Alexandria. Founded in 1749, Old Town is a place rich with colonial charm. This is the heart of the City of Alexandria. Going back in time, one might have caught a glimpse of a middle-aged George Washington riding his horse up to Christ Church on the corner of Washington and Cameron Streets. Years later, Old Town became the childhood home of famed Confederate General Robert E. Lee. A slew of other notable names from both Virginia and American History add to Old Town’s lore.

Located on the western bank of the Potomac River, Old Town played an important role in the growth of our nation. It is no surprise that Old Town grew to prominence as a well-traveled port city under both British and U.S. rule. Like the rest of the communities in the City of Alexandria, the development of Old Town is tied closely to its proximity to the nation’s capital.

Since the colonial period, Old Town has established itself as a diverse cultural center and bastion of American trade, commerce, and industry.

Quality of Life:

Old Town brings you to the doorstep of colorful row houses on tree-lined streets dotted with gas lamps and cobblestone walks. Old Town is a desirable place to call home for those with an active social calendar. A wide variety of restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, as well as boutique and retail stores, leave plenty to the imagination and ample opportunity to enjoy the finer things in life. Walk down to the Potomac and enjoy the fireworks on the Fourth of July, or bundle up for the holiday tree lighting in December. An Old Town resident would be hard-pressed to run out of things to do.

Getting Around:

Old Town is located just south of D.C. and occupies the southernmost part of the City of Alexandria. Route 1 and the George Washington Parkway (Washington Street) run through Old Town, while Washington's Beltway, I-495 is seconds away. The King Street Metro and Braddock Road Metro Stations are easily accessible and there is a free trolley service that runs from the King Street Metro Station down to the waterfront. DASH bus services are also available. Reagan National Airport is right up the road.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 5 miles.
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 35 miles.
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 40 miles.
