Property Description

CDC GUIDELINES MUST BE FOLLOWED. MASKS AND GLOVES TO BE WORN IN PROPERTY. This outstanding example of early American architecture, located on historic Gentry Row, was built circa 1784 by Captain John Harper. It is almost certain that George Washington visited here and may have attended parties in the gracious formal rooms and danced in the beautifully appointed ballroom, as an early resident, Dr. Elijah Cullen Dick, was amongst his friends. The curved stone steps lead into the elegant entry hallway, opening to the formal living room and dining rooms, separated by a gorgeous keystone arch. Each of these spacious front rooms is graced with wood burning fireplaces, deeply articulated moldings, gorgeous heart pine floors and high ceilings. The dining room offers two china cabinets, and a full length glass door opening to the delightful garden with covered dining space and a lovely fish pond with fountain. The eat in kitchen features custom cabinets, custom ornamentation, stainless steel appliances and countertops, a gas fireplace on a raised hearth and French doors to the brick walled garden. Off the kitchen is a powder room, a pantry, an elevator and access to the "horse alley" leading to the street. On the second level, sunlight streams into the grand ballroom from the three windows across the front of the house, enhanced by a stately fireplace on the west wall. The library is paneled in original pine, while a discreet wet bar peaks out from behind folding doors on the way to the booklined passageway to the guest bedroom and bath above the kitchen. The third floor offers a sun drenched master bedroom with en suite bath and fireplace, as well as a third bedroom and hall bath. Down another passageway above the horse alley, there is a bright and sunny exercise/laundry room or playroom. The fourth floor opens to a fabulous bright and airy fourth bedroom, with arched faux stone feature, resembling a massive fireplace bracketing the bed in this room. There is a full bath on this level and steps leading to an attic for extra storage. There are four bedrooms and four and a half updated/renovated baths, elevator from the first floor to the second and third floor bedroom levels and heart pine floors throughout. The seven wood burning fireplaces are located in the living room, dining room, ballroom, library, master bedroom, second and third bedrooms. There is an additional gas fireplace in the kitchen, adding warmth and ambiance to the kitchen eat in area. There is a large basement accessed from the back of the stairs on the main level, with loads of storage and a wine cellar. The Dr. Dick house is an outstanding example of early Alexandria architecture, built to last for centuries and perhaps even more charming today than in the 1780's.See VAAX252100 - Property is also for lease for $6,495.00/month.
