$400,000 BELOW 2023 TAX ASSESSMENT!!!!!! Fantastic opportunity to own and customize a 1770's Historic Home in Old Town. Three blocks from the Farmer's Market.
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! My personal touch would be to expand the kitchen to the South for a great Kitchen-Breakfast Room combination!!
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 that it is a Detached House by virtue of the brick-walled North and South Gardens. This allows exquisite natural light into every room from both North and South Gardens. The larger South Garden features a Grape Arbor for delightful shade. The Second Bedroom from the front was used as a Sitting Room and office off the Primary Bedroom. The back 2 bedrooms were then accessed from the second stairway in the back.
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!
