We are here at our newest project in Old Town, Alexandria and this beauty is tentatively coming to the market in October!
This property is in a historic district, so we must keep the renovation style consistent with all the other homes. The porch and the front yard have been fully restored with a wood railing on the porch, flagstones on the walkway, beautiful landscaping, and a white picket fence.
The main level has a 9-foot ceiling and a wide staircase with tons of charm that we kept. The tiny galley kitchen has been completely transformed! We have added a large pantry, a half bath to the main level, and added a 9-foot island with bar seating that’s perfect for the family and entertaining.
Moving to the upstairs level, although these old homes have a ton of character, they usually only have one full bath, so we completely reconfigured this floor and created a primary suite with an en-suite bathroom, two more rooms, and a second bath for the kids to share.
In the basement, we have completed all the framework and ductwork and although this home had no central AC, we have added a brand-new dual zone HVAC system. We created a full rec room, laundry room, fourth bedroom with a full bath while keeping the much-loved character of this home. This basement will offer opportunities for either an in-law-suite or Airbnb which would allow you to maximize the investment.
In the backyard, we painted the brick, rebuilt the deck, and added a flagstone patio with flower beds around it and a swinging door so that you can access the alley or use it as parking. Anytime you get into the city, parking is at a premium, and trying to figure out every little thing we can to maximize the space is what we do best.
Thanks for tuning in to this week’s update on our new renovation project. This beautiful home in the heart of Old Town, Alexandria will be on the market in October!
