Welcome to the historic Cary Fielder House, built in 1842 and recently featured in The Garden Club of Virginia’s Historic Garden Week Centennial Commemoration. This semi-detached, jewel box of a home, located in the desirable southeast quadrant of Old Town Alexandria, is a historic treasure. Securely enclosed by a wrought-iron gate and brick wall, this Federal-style home features a private oasis and exquisitely maintained gardens that are simply a joy to behold. Follow the delightful brick path along the side of the home, under the brick arch to the sun-dappled back garden and terrace, and you’ll find a setting reminiscent of Charleston, South Carolina! The pretty tree canopy offers shade from the afternoon sun, and the twinkling lights and bubbling fountain create a magical spot for dinner parties, Sunday brunch, afternoon tea, and so much more! The flow to the outside from both the kitchen and dining rooms, with easy access to the first floor powder room, makes this home ideal for entertaining.
The main level of the home boasts gorgeous, original heart of pine floors, divided light windows, detailed crown molding, plantation shutters, and a gas fireplace with reclaimed mantle. Warm hardwood floors continue into the bright and sunny dining room with easy access to the side terrace. The spacious eat-in kitchen features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, and plenty of storage. The washer and dryer are conveniently located on the main level as well.
Upstairs are three bedrooms with hardwood floors, and two full baths, all generously-sized and beautifully appointed. The front full bathroom is sparkling white and features marble tile and a clawfoot soaking tub. The full bathroom at the rear of the house is equally as stunning with a walk-in shower and skylight. The third bedroom is outfitted with six custom closets and can be used as a home office, dressing room, nursery – your choice! The fabulous southwestern exposure allows sunlight to stream through the many windows of this fine home, a rare treat in historic Old Town.
Located just two blocks above the Potomac River and three blocks from the shops on King Street, The Cary-Fielder House was awarded historic designation by the Historic Alexandria Foundation, and is adorned with the HAF plaque recognizing its architectural integrity. Gorgeous private grounds, an unbeatable location, a smart livable floor plan, and a Wolfe Street address to be proud of. Yes, you can have it all.
