Victorian Meets Modern in Alexandria

Sitting on over an acre of land, this Alexandria home blends Victorian detailing with a number of modern amenities. The main level features three living rooms, but the primary space stands out due to its wooden paneled walls, a stone fireplace, A-frame ceiling with exposed wooden beams, and an attached sunroom. Most of the finishings on the main level allude to the Victorian aesthetic with rounded window tops and crown molding. A screened porch leads to a back deck and then a large pool and a pair of pool houses. A two-car garage attaches to the home's breezeway.
