Virginia was a Colony when this home was built with the Declaration of Independence still 6 years in the future!
History buffs: The front portion of this 3,000-square-foot home dates to 1770 and was built as a modest two-room house. Over the centuries, it was expanded three times to its current size. It first housed a merchant, who sold it to a rope maker for the ships visiting Alexandria. The rear stable was re-built into a kitchen sometime in the late 1800s/early 1900s. Today, it stands as a 4-bedroom, 2-full and 2-half-bath home that has seen Alexandria grow from its infancy to the bustling City it is today.
This delightful home is detached by virtue of the brick-walled north and south gardens which allows exquisite natural light into the house through abundant windows. The larger south garden features a grape arbor for delightful shade. As you can imagine, the floors are old wide-plank heart pine/fir, there are plenty of built-ins to showcase possessions, and three fireplaces (there were more at one time). Room sizes are very generous, with the primary being 20’x18′. Quite large for Old Town! The kitchen and baths were remodeled in the 1960s and 1970s, so are due for updates, but the possibilities are exciting.
