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. Significant renovations and professional restorations over the years have been completed with great attention to detail. Walk along Oronoco Street’s beautifully tree-lined red brick sidewalk to the waterfront, restaurants, shops and entertainment. A masterpiece for the most discerning buyer.
