This gracious brick, free-standing home with private side garden, carriage house and additional buildable lot stands on one of the original thirty-one lots offered for sale in 1749, on a plat originally owned by Augustine Washington Jr., the half-brother of George Washington. Built in 1812 and renovated in the 1850's to add Victorian details, including a Mansard roof, it is surrounded by formal gardens with growing beds, mature evergreens, boxwood, hellebore and hydrangea and roses. Rare to these older properties is the original carriage house with a full kitchen and bath that can be used as a separate apartment, artist studio, office or guest suite. The house is representative of the traditional historic Alexandria "townhouse" having a rectangular form with entrance hall at the side and two adjacent formal rooms. The entry with vestibule reveals a glass interior door opening to a gracious hall with heart pine floors and wide openings that frame a sophisticated, formal living and dining room. Extensive decorative moldings, including matching mantels for the two wood-burning fireplaces, accent sun-washed rooms joined by an elaborate arch, with Corinthian columns and a keystone and gorgeous cast iron radiators.
