In this week's Under Contract, we highlight a 4,000 square-foot Alexandria flounder house that spent about a month on the market before finding a buyer just before July 4.


A Month For An 18th Century Alexandria Flounder Home

A few blocks from the Alexandria waterfront, this flounder home on a 4,000-square-foot lot spent about a month on the market before finding a buyer just before the holiday. The three-bedroom home was renovated 20 years ago to include a number of modern conveniences, but the home's 18th-century heritage can still be seen in the wormy chestnut door frame, the solid brass dolphin door knocker, five restored fireplaces and the original heart pine floors. The kitchen features eccentric detailing including a refrigerator with a locally hand-carved wooden front, a custom steel grill range, a round central island, a wine fridge and a colonial-era fireplace. A primary suite upstairs includes a large walk-in closet, a sunroom that could be used as an office and an en-suite bathroom that includes dual vanity sinks, a separate toilet area and a Japanese steel soaking tub. A garage out back fits two cars.
