The Details

6 Beds | 5.5 Baths | 6,621 Sq Ft | 1800 Year Built | Contract
An Iconic Property Rich in History. Rarely does an offering like this come along, embodying a storied chapter in Old Town history. The Patton-Fowle House-attributed by some to renowned early American architect Charles Bulfinch of Boston-is one of America's finest examples of Federal high-style architecture, and among the largest, most distinctive gems in Alexandria, VA. This important landmark is protected by preservation easements in favor of the Commonwealth of Virginia and Historic Alexandria Foundation. Construction began in 1806 by James Patton and was completed in 1815 by wealthy shipping merchant and banker William Fowle of Boston. The home remained in the Fowle family until 1969, and has since been thoughtfully expanded, restored and modernized. Magnificence in Every Detail. This exquisite freestanding residence set on spacious lushly landscaped grounds boasts 6 bedrooms and 5.1 baths, not to mention many wonderful period details and high-end upgrades. A covered porch and gorgeous entrance greet you upon arrival, graced by a leaded glass fan light & side lights restored by Mr. Goldkuhle, a famous leaded glass expert who helped restore windows at the National Cathedral. An original front door opens to a striking entry hall featuring a turned original staircase with shadow rail. Interiors impress with tall ceilings, original ornate plaster crown moldings, tasteful millwork, 8 lined fireplaces with original mantels & surrounds (several with coal baskets made in England which light with a gas flame), antique crystal chandeliers from England, and hardwood floors. Exceptional Design and Comfort. While very grand, the home affords a comfortable, contemporary style of living desired by todayís discerning buyer. Perfectly proportioned rooms are designed for both intimate and large-scale entertaining. The large living room for cocktail parties and holiday gatherings, and elegant dining room for sit-down meals are very inviting, brightened by oversized windows.

The chef will be inspired in the gourmet kitchen equipped with honed marble countertops, a Lacanche French gas stove with double oven plus wall oven in the large center island, Sub-Zero refrigerator, 2 freezer & 2 warming drawers, and a wine fridge. An open breakfast/sitting room with fireplace has a window wall & glass doors to expansive terraces that stretch the entire back of the house. Outdoors is a dream for hosting and an oasis for relaxing with family, complemented by an enormous yard with mature trees & plantings. Electric driveway gates open to provide off-street parking for multiple cars. Rounding out the main level is a beautiful powder room. Generous, Gracious Living. Ascend the staircase or take the elevator (which accesses three levels) up to a 2nd story landing showcasing a splendid Jeffersonian window and original ornate iron exterior railing. Your luxurious master retreat awaits, with remote-controlled draperies, original floors, a gas fireplace, phenomenal his & hers closets and new white marble en-suite spa bath with in-floor heating. Level 2 also has 2 additional bedrooms (one now used as an office) and a renovated bath. The top floor with a dramatic barrel-ceiling landing offers 3 more sizable guest rooms and 2 well-appointed full baths. The lower level haven presents a fabulous bricked wine room, exercise room with heated floor, laundry, full bath, and excellent storage areas. Donít miss this true treasure situated in the historical district, a short stroll to the waterfront and all the premium attractions for which coveted Old Town is known.
