In Southeast Old Town, 613 S. Royal St. is a detached townhouse that shows off the kind of historic charm that Alexandria is known for. Its classic bricks and dormer windows nod to the Colonial style, while the light-filled interior is full of elegant modern design touches.
The location is another draw. This property is located just minutes from plenty of great shopping and dining, the Mount Vernon trail, and the waterfront.
This house has five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, totaling 3,900 square feet, plus off-street parking and a back patio. The current list price is $2,699,000.
This living room is situated just to the side of the foyer, through a wide arched doorway. The space is flooded with natural light from the front-facing windows, and the fireplace provides a central focal point for the room.
Throughout the home, design features, like wallpaper and lighting fixtures, add to the character of the home. In this formal dining room, a pale blue floral print and a sleek modern fixture give the room a bright, classic look.
This grand family room is eye-catching, with its high ceiling, exposed wood beams, and tall stone-faced, ventless gas fireplace. Two sets of French doors offer both lighting and access to the back patio, making for a convenient connection between the indoor and outdoor dining spaces.
More wood beams flow into the kitchen area, bringing in some warm tones to highlight the cream-colored countertops and cabinetry. A wide kitchen island offers space to sit or to cook, and the space between the kitchen and family room is big enough for a table to form another dining area. The kitchen has a Wolf range, a steam oven, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator.
The primary suite is spacious, with a large bedroom full of wide windows, a walk-in closet, and an en suite bathroom.
Out back, a spacious flagstone patio offers plenty of space for entertaining in the sun. The outdoor area is surrounded by a fence for privacy, and contains a new shed for extra storage.
