ALEXANDRIA, Virginia, 22314 $1,395,000
The last quarter of the nineteenth century saw a slow resurgence of building and life in Alexandria after the War Between the States. Dwelling houses for smaller families were in greater demand and pockets of building emerged within the city limits. The 600 block of South Saint Asaph Street was the welcome location for a number of these homes, including the clapboard structure at 624 South Saint Asaph Street. Today, it is a sophisticated residence with generous sized rooms, tall ceilings, wood or brick floors, two fireplaces, glorious built-ins and extensive decorative detail. Yet it also includes the surprise of a roof-top terrace from which you can view the cityscape from on high and a charming enclosed garden with brick and slate patio permitting total relaxation and a snippet of gardening for the green thumb in you. Off-street parking adds to the delights of this period home where the present owners have lovingly and successfully brought it into the twenty-first century.. Gracious formal rooms lead to the masterful kitchen with sleek counters, glass-front cabinets with lighting, warm wood cabinets for culinary necessities and recent appliances. Beyond is a truly inviting family room with custom book shelves and wondrous light while three large bedrooms await upstairs. Bragging about the improvements is easy, starting with the true, divided light high-efficiency windows, the crisp exterior painting, custom woodwork and stair to the loft, replaced roofing and roof-top deck. Even the kitchen and bathrooms have been renovated! But don't miss the irrigation systems in the front and rear gardens assuring plenty of TLC for all the plantings. Super location!
