Address: 212 S. Royal Street
Neighborhood: Old Town
Lot #67, one of Alexandria’s original 84 numbered lots, was laid out by surveyor John West, Jr. and his 17-year-old apprentice, George Washington.
Designed during the late Federal period, this Victorian-Era home is located in Old Town’s historic southeast quadrant — just steps from fine food and wine, the farmer’s market, boutiques, art galleries and the Potomac River.
Featured in The Twig’s Historic Alexandria Homes Tour twice over the years, 212 S. Royal Street has evolved over time to the exquisite residence it is today.
The character and charm of the past — high ceilings, moldings, tall windows, pine floors and fireplaces — are perfectly balanced with a contemporary flair and modern updates.
Its state-of-the-art kitchen includes SubZero, Bosch and Miele appliances, honed Italian Grigio Carnico Marble counters and custom high gloss Woodcraft cabinets.
Flooded with light from the many windows, a two-story glass wall, skylights in each of the two master baths and dramatic lighting… this house graciously welcomes you home.
For those that enjoy gardening and entertaining, the expansive tiered garden will capture your heart. Fully fenced and completely private with outdoor speakers and lighting, this bricked and landscaped oasis is a magnificent place to relax or entertain.
Showings by appointment only.
