Daily Dream Home: Old Town Alexandria


Today’s home carries a bit of history with it. This home in the old town area of Alexandria, Virgina was built circa 1952. Legend has it claimed that George Johnston wrote the resolution to the Stamp Act here, later delivered by Patrick Henry at the House of Burgesses.

The free-standing home on a double lot offers privacy with a spacious rear yard and landscaped side gardens. Proving the enduring value of classic design, this home has its original floors and hand blown glass panes in many of the windows. The home’s stately feel comes from high ceilings, fireplaces with 18th century mantels and a gorgeous keystone archway in the front hall speak to the integrity of this special plaqued property.

Double parlors feature fireplaces with original mantels, high ceilings, gorgeous heart pine floors, and many windows.

The  dining room with its distinctive Jefferson curved wall is an exemplar of the gracefulness of early design. A sunny family room with a wall of glass overlooking a peaceful, private rear backyard. An original brick smokehouse and two off-street parking spaces complete this property.

This home is listed for $5.4 million with McEnearney Associates and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
