The Treasure that is 309 N. Saint Asaph Street awaits you! Built in 1830, during the vigorous expansion of Old Town Alexandria, this end townhouse has always garnered attention for its striking presence, impressive finish details, wide-planked heart of pine floors and beautiful built-in bookcases. The craftsmanship of the 19th century, blended with the careful mid-20th century restoration by Polly Hulfish, creates a solid, improved and much-loved property to make your own. The home was lifted off of its foundation in the 1970s to allow for a total rework of the lower level, then joined again to create its permanence with all of the historic elements in place and intact. A fine glass transom tops the entry door which opens to a commodious living room with carved woodwork and molding. A glorious wood-burning fireplace serves as a focal point with flanking key stoned, arched bookcases and cupboards. Through the hyphen hall beyond you’ll find a convenient powder room and entry to the large kitchen. The wide dining area at the back of the home overlooks the walled garden and the beamed ceiling, wood cabinetry and generous light contribute to the warm feel of this lively “hub.” The upper level offers two bedrooms, each with double closets, and separated by a nicely appointed full bath. One bedroom enjoys further decorative detail with mounted pilasters on the wall facing a wood-burning fireplace, adorned by a mantel. The second bedroom overlooks the intimate garden where acuba, roses and potted plants add to the perimeter beds. A lower-level recreation room with paneled walls, built-in bookcases and daybeds functions as casual play or guest space. Beyond is a laundry/utility area that includes a 2018 sump pump, a 2013 HVAC system while additional improvements include the 2020 roof! Freshly painted throughout with rich, warm floors, we invite you to tour today. You likely know that Old Town Alexandria is especially unique. As the third oldest historic district in the United States, it offers lively activity in shops, Saturday’s open air market and restaurants, intrigue with cobblestone streets, important landmarks and an array of period homes, all seemingly untouched by time. Yet today’s conveniences for living are at your fingertips. What a great way to combine multiple centuries of living within its rich heritage and your peaceful, soft urban lifestyle!
