About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Your home away from home, a stone's throw from the Capitol. Spread out in 2600 square feet of well appointed living space with all the comforts of home.

You will love staying in this historic 1850s home on Queen Street just steps away from all Old Town Alexandria has to offer. The large house has been renovated and modernized from top to bottom with gorgeous details throughout -- crown molding, built in bookshelves, exposed brick, working fireplace. We live in the nearby suburbs but love staying here and know you will feel like its your home away from home too.

Perfect for families or groups with lots of space to spread out. The house has three bedrooms and has room to sleep 10. Each of the bedrooms has a queen bed, plus there is sleeping for two more in the attic media room, and an additional pull out sofa in the living room. Full finished basement also has TV and room to relax. Clawfoot tubs in the 2 modern full baths, and one additional 1/2 bath. Unusual for the neighborhood, there is a large fenced yard with beautiful outdoor patio. A great place for a cook out or sitting around the fire pit on a chilly fall night. There is also a playground and basketball court right at the corner.

We are two blocks from King Street, which is the main street through Old Town. Its just a few minute walk to sights, shops, restaurants, and nightlife. If you feel lazy, there is the free Old Town Trolley that goes the length of King Street. There is a stop every few blocks, just hop on and you can ride down to the waterfront. City Bike rental stations are also nearby. Its easy to go out and enjoy all the great shops, historic sites and restaurants in Old Town. If you want to stay in and eat at home, the kitchen is large and fully stocked for everything you need to cook in.

The metro is also just five blocks away for easy access to downtown DC. We also have off street parking for 2 cars accessed through the alley. The house also has cable, high speed wi-fi internet, and laundry.

We're looking forward to sharing our home with you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We live in the nearby suburbs and bought this house as a home renovation project. This house has been a labor of love for us as we slowly renovated. The house was smaller and used as a boarding house when we bought it, but we have done a complete top to bottom renovation -- including adding the entire basement level!! The outside is historic, but everything inside is modernized to todays standards.

Why the Owner Chose Old Town West, Alexandria, VA, USA:
We come down and stay here as often as we can. We have lots of ties to Old Town-- we met in one of Old Towns favorite watering holes -- Murphys Irish Pub, had our first date at the Hard Times Cafe, and spend alot of time out and about in Old Town. Eventually we plan to retire here, but until then, we would like to share it with you!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is quite big for Old Town, so you will have more room than most. You may feel like staying in -- cook meals in the large kitchen or out back on the grill, spend some time hanging out in the house, or on the patio. But the location is quite central just two blocks from Old Towns main drag, King Street. If you are going into DC, the metro is only 5 blocks away.
