Property Description

This is a Once-in-a-Lifetime opportunity to own a true Colonial-era Historic house close to the Alexandria waterfront! With a separate Garden Lot!!! The house was built not long after the Revolutionary Way, (1790) to house workers from the City Docks, which were only a half-block away at the time! It has been well maintained, but kept in its Historic configuration. PLUS, it comes with an adjacent lot that was also once built upon for City Dock workers. That house is gone now, but you can still see the outline of its fireplace in the Garden Wall! The lot is now a private Garden for this property, and is absolutely stunning! A Private Secret Garden!!! (The lot is 414-A Lee Street, and is just smaller than allowed to be built upon “by right.” Means it could be built on with a Special Exception.: Possibly a Garage or Accessory Dwelling Unit.)nnThe house was actually 2 houses when built, and long ago was combined into a bigger, wider house – Numbers 3 and 4 Potomac Court. Inside there are the original wide-plank pine floors, old windows, narrow Colonial stairs, and Charm everywhere. The main level features a Living Room with wood fireplace, a second Living Room or Family Room, a separate Dining Room, and Kitchen. It has moden conveniences, tho – Central Heat & AC , Washer/Dryer, 2.5 Baths, and recent kitchen. nnUpstairs are two Bedrooms, two Full Baths, and an Office Space. There is a full stand-up Attic as well. nnIn the Backyard (yes, a separate space from the side Garden Lot!), there is a brick patio, retaining walls, and a dip near the back wall that is most likely a Colonial-era well or privy. It may well hold 200+ year old secrets!!!
