Built in 1820 and commemorated with a lovely plaque, this rare, historic semi-detached brick home in Old Town sits on a beautiful tree-lined block, in an excellent location near it all! Classic elegance meets modern luxury within this finely-renovated gem featuring 4 bedrooms, 2 and a half baths, and a gracious layout for living and entertaining. Charming gas lanterns, window shutters and boxwoods, American and Virginia flags, a standing seam metal roof, along with an iron-gate entrance and herringbone-patterned brick walkway to the main side door create welcoming curb appeal. Time outside is yours to enjoy on the large, private fenced-in patio garden with hydrangeas and azaleas, a perfect setting for lounging, reading and alfresco dining. Enhancing the allure is an irrigation system for planted areas and a delightful shed/unique brick artist studio off the patio brightened by 2 windows and a skylight. Generous interiors of the house are also light-filled thanks to windows on triple exposures and a windowed stairway. Wonderful elements grace the ambience such as rich hardwood floors throughout, gorgeous original exposed brick in the front entry hall, 4 fireplaces, and tasteful moldings and millwork. The inviting living room/parlor is expansive and comfortable with 2 fireplaces and handsome built-ins. Prior owners used this room for living and dining, leaving a remaining chandelier connection under the ceiling plaster in the dining area should the new residents desire that layout. However, there is a wonderful separate formal dining room awaiting for your dinner parties, with access to the side patio garden via glass-paneled French doors. The cook will delight in the offerings of the stunning renovated kitchen with a 13’ vaulted ceiling with wood beams, abundant cabinetry, Cambria quartz countertops in Dovedale White, a wood island/table, and premium stainless steel appliances including a gas oven/cooktop. An arched window overlooks a glorious Japanese red maple tree and the artist studio, and a glass door opens to the patio garden for hosting outdoors in warmer weather. A washer and dryer closet in the kitchen affords laundry ease. Plus, there is a guest powder room with marble floor completing the main level. Sleeping quarters reside upstairs and provide a peaceful place to unwind. The primary bedroom is divine with a fireplace, sunny windows, 2 big closets, and a full hall bath with additional closets. The second bedroom with a fireplace and double closet is currently used as an office. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are well-appointed, one with built-ins, the other with plaid wallpaper from the UK. Making this special home even more irresistible is the idyllic address in the coveted southeast quadrant of Old Town, minutes to shops, restaurants, parks, the river, public transportation, and the Mt. Vernon Trail.
