In Old Town Alexandria, buyers can expect to pay 100 percent of a seller’s asking price — and with houses in the area typically on the market for only 29 days, you might want to act fast to snag a home.
This may be especially true for homes located on the historic Gentry Row, in the 200 block of Prince St. in Alexandria.
Built in 1788 and restored, renovated, and expanded, 214 Prince St. is complete with amenities, including six fireplaces. The home combines both comfort and elegance, from its exposed brick and entertaining areas complete with surround sound to the French doors and column accents. This one-of-a-kind jewel is sure to enchant its residents and guests alike.
This four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom row house is over 3,900 square feet, and perfect for those looking to be in the midst of the city’s history, local shops and restaurants, and the Potomac River.
This upper level loft with exposed beams and hardwood floors isn’t lacking sun — the room is equipped with a skylight to let it all in. A dressing area with custom cabinetry completes the room as natural light floods the adjacent sitting area.
Located on the lower level, this recreation room, complete with elegant sconces fitted above the wood-burning fireplace and brick flooring, is great for a cozy night on the couch or entertaining.
A long kitchen with several seating options, like a built-in bench with a skylight overhead that calls for a nice breakfast in, is separate from the dining room with stunning paneling. The expansive kitchen also contains a wet bar, coffee bar, and beverage refrigerator, and Thermador stainless steel appliances are surrounded by custom cabinetry.
This full bathroom is fitted with a vanity sink bowl and clawfoot tub, and the marble shower is met with a seamless glass door. The home’s other bathrooms, which feature decorative tile and an exposed brick wall, also live up to the standards this primary bathroom sets.
While the interior of the home is surely a sight, the exterior is not something to be missed. A private terrace surrounded by brick walls offers seating and a grill, and this upper porch location has outdoor lounging complete with an awning and a fan to cool off during the city’s hot summer days — and an irrigation system that waters all the flowers.
