Old Town Alexandria is well known for its historic landmarks, picturesque waterfront, and bustling King Street. But in the heart of all of that is 524 S. Pitt St., a private piece of serenity.
Built in 2001, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath townhouse has ample room to host the entire family, along with two off-street parking spaces and an outdoor shed for extra storage. And the home boasts a stunning, professionally landscaped private garden.
Currently under contract, this charming blue Old Town Alexandria townhouse blends contemporary and traditional design elements for sunny, open living on the main floor.
Just beyond the bright red front door, you’ll find a cheerful living room/dining room combination with custom built-in shelving to display books and decorations.
High ceilings, columns, and crown molding define the space, bringing fresh touches to the traditional build. A custom chandelier hangs in the dining room that is currently being used as a music room.
Natural light floods through the hardwood-floored open kitchen and family room, highlighting the granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The gourmet kitchen includes a gas cooktop, more custom shelving and wood cabinetry, as well as a center island with counter space to handle the most complex recipes.
Nestled between two doors to the private garden, the family room boasts built-ins and a gas fireplace (one of two in the home). Custom shelving offers a place to tuck away movies and board games, while custom plantation shutters allow for privacy.
Once you step through the patio doors, you are met with the one-of-a-kind garden professionally landscaped by McHale Landscaping with an irrigation system.
With outdoor dining on the spacious patio, a stunning moonscape arch, pond, and fire pit, this well-lit terrace is begging to be an entertaining space, day or night.
