Located on Gentry Row, this block has been described as the finest example of 18th century townhouse architecture in Old Town Alexandria. (Old Alexandria: Where America’s Past is Present). This home and its unique and classic features reaffirm that designation. Alexandria Virginia Street by Street suggests that both Dr. Elisha Cullen Dick and Dr. James Craik lived in the home in the 1780’s and 90’s. Both of these physicians attended George Washington at Mount Vernon in his last illness. The faade of this home exhibits distinctive 18th century brickwork (English and Flemish Bond), elegant window masonry, architectural symmetry, dentil molding at the roof line, keystones, a transom over the front door, the original staircase and a lovely railing. This home is plaster over brick construction, the basement floor is stone and in its entirety displays strong and stable consistency throughout. The floors are heart pine and all interior doors in each bedroom and bath are solid wood with the original box locks and keys still intact! The high ceilings and elaborate original woodwork are to be treasured. Interior moldings, custom bookcases and many built-ins are found on all four levels of the living space in this residence. There are 2 gas fireplaces (kitchen & library) and one wood burning (living room) The other three are decorative and closed with original mantles. The gas & wood burning fireplaces are in good working order but convey “as is.” All of the marble surrounds and the mantles on three floors of this residence are beautiful There are 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths; the 3 level staircase is flooded with light by the windows on each level; All of the staircase woodwork (baluster and balustrades) is beautiful. The stairs from the first to the second is 18th century; the flight from the second to the third was added about 100 years later. The 4th level is used as a study and as a bedroom or rec room in times past. The roof is copper and was replaced in 1995; over time, snow guards and new gutters have been installed. Recent improvements include: 2017: new HVAC (Bosch) to service the 3rd and 4th floor; full size, side-by-side washer and dryer in large bath with new tile floor and paint 2018: Kitchen was completely gutted: custom-made cabinets to complement the space & the dcor some with lighting; GE counter depth refrigerator with ice maker; GE dishwasher, gas stove + four burners and griddle; heavy duty disposal, large sink, soapstone counter tops, custom lighting & 2 chandeliers, cork tile floor Main level bath 2019: Halls and stairs redecorated with Farrow & Ball wall paper; mural design is early 19th century French in entry hall; New carpet on stairs in the hall ways; brass chandelier installed in the stair and entrance hall; Fourth floor renovation with new carpet, paint and hand railings Third floor bath had new sink, tub/shower, flooring and lighting 2020: Marble top vanity in second floor bathroom; new cabinet in library and Garden has a remodeled entrance from the hallway which includes lattice work, trek decking and a hinged entrance into the basement with new steel frame and doors The Georgian walled garden has mature plantings and the brick paving is spacious and private and further completes the beauty and charm of this residence. A good sized basement is great for storage and would make an excellent wine cellar or workshop. The home has been featured in a number of Guides and Tours in the last few years.
