Not every home is capable of exuding charm and quaintness while also adhering to current design trends. But 500 Duke Street in Old Town Alexandria is not your average home, from its light green front door to the extended wooden patio. As this property balances the clean, white look of the kitchen and bedrooms with endless windows showcasing the beautiful wooden architecture of Old Town, there is no doubt this home will steal your heart away.
This property features five bedrooms and four full bathrooms and covers 3,520 square feet. The current list price is $3,650,000.
While there are endless parts of this home to highlight, the exterior holds the top of the list. Built in 1840, the property has been revamped with dark green window shutters, complemented with a light green door.
The double parlor is the perfect open space for your entertaining needs. With the stunning bay window acting as a partition and the rebuilt wood burning fireplace instantly cozying the space, a day won’t go by without this room being used.
The narrow exterior of this house brings in many perks, one of them being an elongated kitchen, complete with granite countertops that will not disappoint. To top it all off, there is also a wine refrigerator, two dishwashers, and an accented dark blue gas stove and oven.
As you ascend the main staircase, you’ll see the elegant primary suite. The en suite bathroom features a freestanding soaking tub, double vanity, and a spacious shower. Making your way around the upper level, there are three additional bedrooms and two full bathrooms.
Beyond the elegance of the indoor space, this property also includes a beautiful brick patio. With the sounds of the city paired with the calmness of the garden, this space can double up as perfect hosting grounds or a place of solitude.
