Alexandria house description
The best of both worlds. Old Town, Alexandria is steeped in historic charm and cobblestone streets, yet is also a vibrant neighborhood with great dining, shopping, culture and recreational outlets like boating, biking and more.
The house on South Lee Street was built in the 1780's by a sea captain in one of the most desirable Old Town blocks, and is perfectly situated for an individual, a couple or a family to enjoy life in Old Town. The 200 block of South Lee Street is just one block from the Potomac River and two blocks from the shops and restaurants of lower King Street and the open spaces of a large waterfront park. And, only a mile from the Metro and five blocks off the George Washington Parkway, it offers an ideal location for easy commuting into Washington, D.C. or elsewhere in the metropolitan region. For those with young children, there is an award-winning public elementary school within walking distance, and exceptional pre-schools within blocks.
This South Lee Street home is a lovely brick row house with French doors opening onto a quiet back garden and brick patio. It sits on a tree-lined street with brick sidewalks, friendly neighbors and a true sense of community. Furnished with 18th and 19th century period antique furniture (or unfurnished, if preferred) and with original interior woodwork and original wide- plank pine floors, the interior evokes the warmth and aura of early Alexandria. At the same time, a newly-renovated kitchen with Viking oven and stove and updated appliances and master suite make for a modern living experience – the best of both worlds.
This home can be leased unfurnished for long term rentals. (Fully furnished is an option, if required)
