Address: 109 S Lee Street
Neighborhood: Old Town
Captivating, historic semi-detached, circa 1880 brick home, one-half block from King Street, one block to the Potomac River/Waterfront Park, in the desirable SE quadrant.
This rarely available, dramatic 25-foot wide property was created from two separate homes (109 & 111) at the turn of this century. It is “Everything Old Town” — featuring a local artist’s interior wall murals, 9-foot exposed beamed ceilings, original hardwood floors, 3 wood-burning fireplaces, an upgraded kitchen and cozy breakfast room with a wood-burning fireplace and exposed brick.
Enter through one of two front doors into a double front parlor, each with a wood-burning fireplace and beautiful original wood floors, into a fabulously open main level featuring two additional seating areas and an inviting dining room. The upgraded kitchen features a Wolfe gas stove, cherry cabinets and granite counters with an island for social seating, as well as an adjoining cozy fireplace and breakfast/sitting room.
From the kitchen, French doors open to a roomy, private, stone-terraced landscaped courtyard and garden enhanced by 20-year-old indigenous grape vines. Returning inside, two separate staircases lead to a fabulous master bedroom & bath with a jacuzzi tub. The unusually large master suite offers double walk-in closets and a morning sitting room where you can enjoy your coffee and online news before stepping out for a breath of fresh air on the private outdoor balcony overlooking the terraced garden.
Exposed brick walls and a unique wood-paneled inset, that fits a king size bed. Two sun-drenched, generously proportioned front bedrooms, one with built-ins, and a full bath complete the second level. An exciting Old Town lifestyle is at your fingertips.

If you had a chance to enhance a child’s future with a time commitment of less than 2 hours a week, how would you respond? You have that opportunity right now to join over 200 Alexandrians as a reading tutor volunteer with the Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC).
ATC tutors work with one child in kindergarten, first, or second grade in Alexandria public schools who need extra help with reading. Tutors meet with their Book Buddy 1-2 times each week for 30 minutes October-May at school, during school hours. Many struggling readers only receive one-on-one instruction through this program, and it makes all the difference. Last year, ATC served 195 children, of whom 82% ended the year reading on grade level and 96% made substantial reading gains. But the need is great, and we are still seeing learning lags from the pandemic.
This year, ATC plans to significantly increase the size of the program to reach over 250 students and to serve every elementary school in Alexandria. This is very exciting news, but we will only succeed if we can recruit more tutors. ATC trains you, matches you with a child, and provides ongoing lesson materials and support.
