Description

Stroll back in time to the earliest days of Old Town and take advantage of this rare opportunity to own a beloved home located on the cobblestones of historic Captain’s Row.

This gem built by John Harper, a Philadelphia wheat merchant who settled in Alexandria in the late 1700’s, welcomes you via a wrought iron gate into an enchanting side alley lined by azaleas and boxwoods.  The front door is graciously framed by fan and sidelight windows. Upon entering you’ll immediately notice the random-width floors featured throughout the home. Architectural details from the Federal period enhance the ample entertaining space in the light-filled living and dining rooms.  Additionally, a charming den featuring an antique brick floor with a beautiful view of the garden, inspires conversation for an intimate gathering or a tucked-away space to quietly read. A galley kitchen and half bath complete the first-floor plan.

The second level offers three bedrooms, two fireplaces and two baths.  Each bedroom provides a walk-in closet, a rarity in Old Town. You will find a fourth bedroom with extra storage space, a third bath and a craft room located on the third level.

The garden is a magical setting, rich with camelias, boxwoods and hydrangeas.  Mature crepe myrtles and dogwoods frame the two brick patios. A pebble path leads to a utility area with access to Wales Alley.

The owners have received permission from the Board of Architectural Review to install off-street parking.  Contact the listing agent for further details.

Old Town

Welcome to historic Old Town, Alexandria. Founded in 1749, Old Town is a place rich with colonial charm. This is the heart of the City of Alexandria. Going back in time, one might have caught a glimpse of a middle-aged George Washington riding his horse up to Christ Church on the corner of Washington and Cameron Streets. Years later, Old Town became the childhood home of famed Confederate General Robert E. Lee. A slew of other notable names from both Virginia and American History add to Old Town’s lore.

Located on the western bank of the Potomac River, Old Town played an important role in the growth of our nation. It is no surprise that Old Town grew to prominence as a well-traveled port city under both British and U.S. rule. Like the rest of the communities in the City of Alexandria, the development of Old Town is tied closely to its proximity to the nation’s capital.

Since the colonial period, Old Town has established itself as a diverse cultural center and bastion of American trade, commerce, and industry.

Quality of Life:

Old Town brings you to the doorstep of colorful row houses on tree-lined streets dotted with gas lamps and cobblestone walks. Old Town is a desirable place to call home for those with an active social calendar. A wide variety of restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, as well as boutique and retail stores, leave plenty to the imagination and ample opportunity to enjoy the finer things in life. Walk down to the Potomac and enjoy the fireworks on the Fourth of July, or bundle up for the holiday tree lighting in December. An Old Town resident would be hard-pressed to run out of things to do.

Getting Around:

Old Town is located just south of D.C. and occupies the southernmost part of the City of Alexandria. Route 1 and the George Washington Parkway (Washington Street) run through Old Town, while Washington's Beltway, I-495 is seconds away. The King Street Metro and Braddock Road Metro Stations are easily accessible and there is a free trolley service that runs from the King Street Metro Station down to the waterfront. DASH bus services are also available. Reagan National Airport is right up the road.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 5 miles.
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 35 miles.
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 40 miles.
