Classic 1940s features, including wide-plank hardwood floors, detailed fireplace mantels, rounded ceilings on the upper level, a slate roof, and wood-framed windows, add character and timeless appeal to the property.

One of the highlights of this property is its outstanding location on Franklin Street.

In 2021, the property received several valuable upgrades, including new Leaf Filter gutters, ensuring that your gutters remain free of debris and function optimally year-round. The installation of SMART dimmable switches throughout the house allows you to easily control the lighting and create the perfect ambiance for any occasion. A SMART thermostat has also been installed, providing energy efficiency and convenient temperature control.

To enhance the security of your home a new ADT whole house security system has been installed, along with keypad locks and custom storm doors on all exterior doors allowing for keyless entry and enhanced control over access to your home. The storm doors also provide an extra layer of protection against the elements while allowing natural light to filter in and fresh air to circulate throughout your home. The exterior wood trim was also freshly painted in 2022, revitalizing the home’s curb appeal and preserving its charming aesthetics.

With these remarkable upgrades, this Old Town Alexandria rowhouse not only offers a fantastic location and an array of features but also provides modern conveniences, security enhancements, and aesthetic improvements that will make living here an absolute pleasure.
