In a world full of modern homes, it’s a delight to see a townhouse full of charm and character from when it was first built. And the 19th-century Old Town Alexandria townhouse on 421 Wilkes St. is just that — blending its original hardwood flooring and reclaimed barnwood from its 20th-century addition to create a one-of-a-kind look.
With just over 1,800 square feet, this townhome is currently listed for $1,159,999 and features three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms and plenty desirable details, including exposed brick, multiple fireplaces, and so much more.
Guests are met with the home’s beauty right when they walk through the door. The dark hardwood flooring immediately draws your eye. Once you are able to pull your attention away from the floor, the swoon-worthy built-in bookshelves will be the next feature calling for your attention.
The primary bedroom is truly a sight to behold. While those incredible hardwood floors are back, the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows is what will amaze you. As if the morning views from the bed aren’t good enough, the sitting area that stretches along the base of the windows provides a more up-close look at the scenery.
Not to mention, the room is also home to a loft, providing a better view of those stunning sights. Climb up the stairs and follow the path to a sitting nook that is sure to get hours of use — whether it be for reading or bird-watching.
The 1971 addition is responsible for this expansive family room. Centered around the brick fireplace, the room provides a cozy feel with its wood accents and barnwood beams throughout.
As you head into the kitchen, you’ll notice the wood and brick accents continue throughout the space. The white brick backsplash and wood oven range complement the cream-colored cabinets and stainless steel appliances, creating a picturesque farmhouse kitchen.
Make your way out the back door for a private patio within the home’s fenced-in yard. Fitted with a storage shed and stone pavers, this outdoor oasis will definitely act as an extension of the home’s interior during the warmer months.
