A rare offering, the Potts-Fitzhugh House resides on a half-acre double lot in the heart of Old Town Alexandria.
The grand entrance greets you to a storybook foyer with magnificent architecture juxtaposed with historic period details and natural light creating both a majestic yet warm scene. Beyond the entry, the main level offers ideal settings for unforgettable entertaining with an oversized great room, stately dining room and gourmet kitchen. Designed with traditional elegance, this timeless estate is light, bright and open throughout.
The unique, expansive primary suite is the perfect escape that boasts a custom dressing room and spa bath with dual vanities and a soaking tub. The home features five additional bedrooms and four additional bathrooms. Equally impressive, outside the home, the verdant garden awaits. With patios, countless specimen trees and lush grounds, this estate is truly magical.
Just through the garden, you will find the bonus, detached two-car garage and studio space.

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.
