Welcome to 2 Swifts Alley, an exquisite piece of Alexandria's history beautifully melded with modern luxury. This distinguished 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home offers a unique blend of character, history, privacy, and contemporary comforts, making it a true gem in the heart of Old Town. This remarkable property, circa 1780, was once a tobacco warehouse, and its rich heritage is evident in the original wood beams that grace the home's interior. The historic character is seamlessly combined with modern amenities to provide a comfortable and elegant living experience. With over 5,300 square feet of finished living space, this home offers ample room for both relaxation and entertainment. Hardwood floors, recessed lighting and multiple fireplaces enhance the ambiance, while the oversized windows and 12-foot-high ceilings infuse each room with natural light. The renovated kitchen (2019) is a culinary enthusiast's dream, while the renovated primary bath (2019) and guest bathroom provide a touch of contemporary luxury. A reconfigured third level is perfect for guests or families (imagine a separate floor just for the kids or guests!) with two additional bedrooms, renovated bath, and large upper-level family room. The breakfast room, with its expansive windows, offers a delightful space to start your day with a view of the gardens. The lower level unveils versatile spaces including a recreation room with grand fireplace and stone floors, a dedicated gym area, and lower-level pantry that can be reimagined into your dream wine cellar. Nestled on a 5,750 square foot lot, this property presents a large yard perfect for outdoor gatherings and recreational activities. Imagine hosting summer barbecues, playing fetch with the family dog or enjoying a leisurely game of croquet in this serene space. Convenience is key, with just one block separating you from the charming shops and restaurants of Old Town Alexandria, City Hall, and the Saturday Farmer's Market. Commuting is a breeze with easy access to major routes, public transport - being less than a mile away from the King Street Metro and Amtrak station. National Harbor, Amazon's HQ2, Washington DC, and more are all within a short drive. A valuable bonus in Old Town, this property offers one parking spot for your convenience. Don't miss your opportunity to own a piece of Alexandria's history while enjoying all the modern comforts this home has to offer.
