Built 1850
Outstanding opportunity to purchase a unique townhouse in historic Old Town Alexandria! Enjoy the charm, prestige, and walkability of this beautiful and historic three-level, brick, L-shaped, stand-alone townhome built in 1850. The private courtyard entrance brings you through a decorative white picket fence and along a landscaped brick walkway to reach the main entrance. Offering 2,440 finished sq ft and room for up to six cars in the private rear parking lot, this property was most recently occupied as professional office space and is currently vacant and ready for a new owner with a new vision. The property is zoned CL and is therefore residential by-right, so it can redeveloped as a single- or multi-family family residence. The parking area behind the structure offers significant potential for expansion of the building footprint. There is no HOA or condominium association for this property. The main level entrance has an open area off the foyer and three large high-ceiling rooms (previously used as offices) with correspondingly large windows that flood the space with light and let in the charm of Old Town Alexandria. Due to its unique L-shape and stand-alone structure, there are two corner rooms with windows on two sides, and the third room is complemented by a large bank of windows. This beautiful layout is duplicated on the upper level for a total of six large rooms above ground. There is an additional seventh room and separate storage space downstairs in the finished basement. There are two half-baths restrooms on the main and upper levels, with a wet bar on the main level. This property features a metal roof, vaulted ceilings in the upstairs room, built-in bookcases, and commercial grade carpeting throughout. The restrooms have been redone (2021) with new LVP flooring and new toilets. The gas water heater was replaced in 2020 and the entire HVAC system (inside and outside) was upgraded with a Trane equipment system in 2005 and remains in excellent working order. Ideally located on a quiet street in the historic area of Old Town and just one block off King Street, the main shopping, dining, and retail district, you’ll be only a half-mile from the Potomac River waterfront, Founders Park, Chart House restaurant, Torpedo Factory Art Center and City Marina. The King St-Old Town Metro Station, which is adjacent to the Hilton Alexandria Old Town and across the street from the Embassy Suites on Diagonal Road, is just a short 8 minute walk away. This neighborhood is a wonderful blend of residential, commercial, and retail and within a short walking distance of all the history and ambiance that Old Town has to offer, making it an ideal location for commercial or residential uses.
