This charming Alexandria estate is rich with family history. The home was built in 1920 by three brothers, intended for their parents. When their father died and their mother chose to live with one of her sons instead, the property was sold — to the same family that’s selling it now. The property has served as a family home to the current owners for five generations. Now, 2911 Holly Street is on sale to the public for the first time since it was constructed more than a century ago.
The property is at one of the highest points in the Mount Ida area, and the home itself sits on a plot of land made up of four total lots, creating a prime location. The house has four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, with a total of 2,568 square feet. The current list price is $1,370,000.
Restored hardwood floors and 9-foot ceilings flow throughout the ground floor, giving the structure an airy, classic appearance.
Tucked just to the side of the kitchen, the dining room is bright and welcoming. Wide windows provide plenty of natural light, and dark-wood cabinets built into the dividing wall give the room some character.
A traditional red brick gas fireplace stands out in this homey living room, providing a glimpse into the history of the structure and making for a cozy gathering space.
This is just one of the three sunrooms the house contains, so there is no shortage of space to settle in and enjoy the seasons without leaving the comfort of your home.
This upstairs bathroom is simple but charming, with marbled tiles on the walls and subtle gold features accenting the space.
