Description

This stunning historic home is one of very few examples of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture in Alexandria, and its renovation and restoration has been fastidiously overseen by local architect James Palmer with the goal of protecting its history while also creating extraordinary modern living spaces that accommodate a 2022 lifestyle. Come see the enormous care taken with this newly restored and remodeled detached home with an incredible amount of space in the heart of Old Town, next door to and overlooking the Lee-Fendall House Museum Gardens. The real stars here are the extraordinary chef's kitchen and the perfect master suite. The enormous kitchen has an open concept and, along with the connected side patio, overlooks the historic gardens beside the home. The appliances will satisfy the most demanding chef, there is ample working and service space on the gorgeous island, and the open connected space is so perfect for entertaining. No doubt this will be a favorite gathering place for many years to come. Upstairs the large master suite is the perfect size with plenty of width and also overlooks the gardens. The master bath is beautifully appointed. The upstairs laundry, with a wonderful set of built-in cabinets, is so convenient, and built-in wine/beverage coolers on 2 levels are a really nice touch. Are you looking for a home that fits your 2022 lifestyle but still maintains its historic feel and setting in the very heart of Old Town? This one is definitely it. ****ADDITIONAL RENOVATION & HISTORY NOTES**** 1) The tax record appears incorrect as to age of home. The outline of the house is on the 1896 Sanborne insurance map, so it appears to predate 1896 (see document). 2) Almost all the doors in the house are original and restored, including the large pocket door, and its hardware, that offers privacy to the kitchen area. 3) All of the fireplaces and exposed brick are original. 4) Fireplaces in Living Room, Dining Room, Office and Kitchen also have original tile work and original mantels. 5) Both arched entry doors at the front of the house and in the vestibule are original to the home. 6) All of the windows visible from Washington Street are original and restored. Many have the historic glass. Window construction/mechanism lifted by chains and weights. 7) The front room on the first floor can be either an office or first level bedroom. It has the original transom, bringing in additional light, original door, historical closet door with original mirror, and original fireplace tile and mantel. 8) An historic wall lines the patio. 9) The home has gorgeous copper gutters and down spouts. 10) New slate roof in front of the house, facing street, and new architectural shingles in back. 11) Two zone HVAC - both gas furnace and heat pump. 12) Zoning is in the process of being converted back to original residential use.
