Welcome to this circa 1890 plaqued historic townhome in the center of Old Town Alexandria. The captivating Federal details of the welcoming front tiled foyer lead to a spacious living room with original hardwood floors and vintage marble surround gas fireplace. Towering ceilings accented with dentil crown molding, oversized arched windows with plantation shutters, and second fireplace, make for an impressive entertaining space. The stately dining room with chandelier and built-in bookcases overlooks the side garden and is bathed in filtered light from the trees. The state of the art chef's kitchen with large island features White Horizons granite counter tops, custom maple cabinetry by Crystal Cabinet Works and radiant floor heating. Top of the line stainless steel appliances include a Bosch benchmark dishwasher, a Subzero refrigerator, a 6 burner Wolf range and a Vinotempo wine fridge. The exquisite attention to detail continues into the private walled garden and side yard. Professional landscape and lighting design including a stunning water fountain will help you forget you're in the center of Alexandria's metropolis. The staircase with original banister leads to a stunning primary suite and two additional bedrooms with a renovated second bath. The upper level is filled with details including transom windows above the doors, a skylight in the stairwell that lets in natural light, and pristine hardwood floors. The two secondary bedrooms with ample closet space share an updated jack and jill bath with a custom tile tub/shower and elevated vanity. The spacious primary suite has a gas fireplace with custom surround and a dressing area with two large closets. The primary bath has a dual vanity sink and a separate large custom tile shower area with glass doors. The lower level family room is also filled with historic charm including brick walls and exposed beam work. Out back, a large driveway and carport accommodate up to three cars for extra added convenience. This spectacular home has all the charm of a plaqued historic city home and all the updates for modern living. Set in the historic city of Alexandria with quaint shops, acclaimed eateries and the convenience of DC just 10 minutes away, this home is truly special.
