Interested in a Historic Home with the ability to add up to 50% more space??
This Colonial-era Georgian home is already almost 3,000 sqft, but includes two Gardens, which afford the ability to increase the size of the home by almost 50%! Could be one of the most stunning homes in Old Town!
History buffs: The front portion of this 3,000 sqft Home dates to 1770 - when Virginia was still a Colony - and was built as a modest 2-room house. Over the centuries, it was expanded 3 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 1800's/early 1900's. Today, it stands as a 4-bedroom, 2-full & 2-half-bath home with that has seen Alexandria grow from its infancy to the bustling City it is today.
One of the unique features of this delightful home is a Detached House by virtue of the brick-walled North and South Gardens. This allows exquisite natural light into the house from both Gardens. 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 3 Fireplaces (there were more at one time). Room sizes are very generous, with the Primary being 20x18. Quite large for Old Town!
