Property Description

Everything you’re looking for in an Old Town lifestyle is right here! Classic end-unit rowhouse in primo location in south east Old Town Alexandria. 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, 3 levels of living space, and a cozy porch and a private brick patio in back and inviting courtyard surrounded by a white picket fence, in front. Located on Franklin Street, you are blocks away from the waterfront, schools, work, shopping, restaurants, biking and hiking trails, major commuter roadways, all while on a tree-lined street where you can relax on your front stoop. Exceptional care has been taken of this home with modern improvements like the beautiful renovated upper level bathroom in calm tones of gray and white (11/2020), and behind-the-scenes upgrades like new water heater, kitchen dishwasher, upgraded electrical panel, and restoring both fireplaces to working condition (all 2018) to make living here even more comfortable. Bright and sunny all day with windows on 3 sides, all with lush treetop views. Classic 1940’s features include wide-plank hardwood floors, detailed fireplace mantels on masonry fireplaces, rounded ceilings on upper level, slate roof, and wood-framed windows. Enjoy the back covered porch or the brick patio relaxing after a long day, or head out to any of the local parks and stores just blocks up the street. Location is convenient to road access to Rt 1, GW Parkway, and 495, and bus routes for commuting. Alexandria City schools and services. Sellers prefer closing at/before 05/17/2021.
