Built 1799
You must see this fabulous historic house, circa 1799, in the Southeast quadrant of Old Town! Located on South Lee Street caddy corner from Windmill Park and with a view of the Potomac River, history speaks to the interior original floors and moldings and modern architecture speaks with the recent kitchen-breakfast room addition, designed by Patrick Camus. Semi-detached with windows on 3 sides, natural light flows into this house from the many windows on the Gibbon Street side. The original fireplace mantel creates a great atmosphere with the additional bookshelves in the living room. A spacious dining room is currently being used as a music room for the owner's daughters. You'll be thrilled with the stunning kitchen addition with custom cabinets, tiled floor, quartzite counter tops. A chef's dream of a Bertazzoni range and hood are right here for wonderful meals along with the long useful island. Pella triple paned windows in the breakfast room allow for more natural light, and the banquettes lift for storage. French doors open to a deep patio with a pergola and fan, the ideal place for a glass of wine or alfresco dinner. 2 spacious bedrooms plus a library are on the second floor with a beautifully renovated bath. Looking through the primary bedroom windows you can see the river! Architectural tiles are found in the primary renovated bath. The irresistible part of this second floor is the enormous outdoor deck overlooking the patio and the mature crape myrtle tree. The 3rd bedroom and renovated bath are on the top floor with another view of the river. Don't miss the lower level, with tall exposed brick wall, all renovated space with wood floors, a standing working desk, another laundry, and MANY closets to hold everything from tubs of holiday decorations to fishing poles. This is a one-of-a-kind house that has been lovingly cared for and renovated. History of ownership includes a major ship builder, 2 Alexandria mayors and a well known sports figure.
