A Corner Colonial in Alexandria
Over in Old Town, this shingled center hall colonial was constructed in the 19th century and has 11-foot tall ceilings throughout the main level. Two archways lead from the hall into the living room, and stained wood beams create tray ceilings in both the formal dining room and the kitchen. The latter room also has a breakfast bar island, a fireplace with wood mantle, and a brick accent wall. The family room has a built-in media console next to french doors leading out to a slate paved patio. At the end of the upstairs landing, a desk is built in beneath a window, and the skylit owners bedroom has a pair of built in units and an skylit ensuite bath.

An Ornate Columbia Heights Seven-Bedroom
The limestone façade and carved pillars framing the front door of this turn-of-the-century seven-bedroom Victorian hint at its elaborate interior. Ornate oak molding, ceiling medallions and kaleidoscopic ceiling wallpaper appoint much of the main level. The foyer/hall houses the paneled wood stairwell, and sets of pocket doors on either side of the hall conceal the living room and formal dining room. The owners bedroom occupies the entire second floor, boasting a sitting room with bay window, a fireplace between built-in units, two custom walk-in closets and an angular dressing room. And by the way — the house also has a separately metered (and currently rented) three bedroom, two bathroom English basement unit with two private entrances.
