The Historic Alexandria Foundation recently recognized this gorgeous Federal residence with their 2017 Restoration Award. The just completed, thoughtful, period-correct restoration spanned years, and features meticulous attention to detail by a respected and well-known local preservationist. Exceptional, fine period architectural details include glowing refinished heart pine floors, solid wood six panel doors, chair rail, crown molding, elegant chandeliers with ceiling medallions, rim lock door hardware, and rarely seen picture hanging rails. Materials salvaged during restoration were carefully restored and repurposed. A well-used 19th century boot scraper still stands beside the front door. Fully up-to-date conveniences and modern functionality complement the history and period character of this amazing home. All five fireplaces have been repaired with two fully operational and the remaining ones require only minor enhancements. Special features include nine foot ceilings; transoms; and heated floors in the kitchen, baths, and lower level great room. Area heating is provided by a highly desirable four zone hot-water system. Virtually all of the mechanical equipment is newly installed. Located on one of the finest streets in Old Town, this spectacular plaqued circa 1815 townhouse is one of four identical homes built by Alexander Veitch. In the spring, summer, and fall the mature trees provide a refreshing canopy over the street. This spacious, move-in ready townhouse offers 2,100 square feet of finished space with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and copious built-in storage. The completely remodeled kitchen includes top-of-the-line appliances, fixtures, and glass door cabinets. The deep garden features mature landscaping and extensive hardscape. It is enhanced by the lower level patio and the upper level mahogany deck and connecting exterior spiral stairs. The lower level great room with bath and fireplace opens onto the garden and can serve as a fourth bedroom. 1110 Prince has been lovingly restored to retain the charm of yesterday and offer the modern conveniences of today. The quality craftsmanship and extraordinary elegance of this home is immediately evident upon entering the front parlor and is reinforced throughout all four levels! A variety of shopping and dining awaits on lively King Street only a block away, and the King Street Metro is nearby. Do not miss this sparkling, historic gem!
