Fans of historic homes and architecture, know Alexandria’s Prince Street is the place to be. And, you’re in luck because a four-level federal row house at 1109 Prince St. recently hit the market.
Built in 1804, the home mixes original features — including the brick archways, hardwood flooring, and working fireplaces — and modern renovations to create a living space that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. The 1,600-square-foot home includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms and is currently listed for $1,395,000.
The front parlor will be the primary gathering spot for all of your future parties. With original hardwood flooring, which you’ll find throughout the house, and one of the two original fireplaces, you’ll get that cozy, old-timey feel instantly.
Head past the dining room to find the renovated kitchen. Recently updated with Miele appliances, the space combines the old with the new effortlessly.
Opposite the stove, you’ll find a large archway that transitions to the breakfast area. It includes a small table for informal meals and even more storage in the form of a built-in, which is great for holding your cookbooks, wine, and other countertop appliances.
Climb to the second level to find the quaint primary bedroom. The window, which overlooks the back garden includes a nook with shelving, making a cozy reading spot on a rainy day. The room also includes an updated bathroom with a walk-in shower.
Just off the bedroom is a library filled with a floor-to-ceiling built-in and skylights. Whether you’re a book, movie, vinyl, or knickknack collector, there will be plenty of space for your collection here.
With a bathroom right outside this versatile room, the new owners can decide to convert the space into a sitting area, bedroom, office, or something else. The home’s second original fireplace will keep you warm throughout those cold NoVA winters.
The third-floor room comes with a built-in captain’s bed, making it the perfect spot for any overnight visitors. With windows facing both the front and back of the house, you won’t have to worry about the space being too dark.
The backyard garden adds some much needed green space to this historic home. Enclosed with a brick wall, the outdoor oasis includes a brick and stone patio, small pond, mature trees, and access to the back alley. The space is also equipped with automatic lighting to ensure the outdoor area can be used at any time. There’s also a carriage house to store all of your outdoor gardening supplies and outdoor toys.
