A Taste of the '80s at the Torpedo Factory
A short walk from the waterfront in Old Town Alexandria, this three-bedroom is an end-unit Torpedo Factory townhouse with 1980s flair. The kitchen has a bay window with a built-in bench framed by pillars and the U-shaped counter has floating cabinets. The uppermost level serves as a huge owner's suite under a vaulted ceiling with brass pipe finishes, a sitting area with built-ins, a corner fireplace, a wet bar, two skylights, and mirrored closet. The bath also incorporates the angularities of the space into the design and has a bidet and a jetted tub opposite a shower stall. Other rooms and areas of the house also feature built-ins in a variety of styles and floor-to-ceiling mirrors.

Smartly Concealed Storage and Skylights
Around the corner from Book Hill Park, this quaint two-bedroom rowhouse smartly arranges less than 1,000 square feet across two levels. The house enters into the living room, where a protruding gas fireplace creates a nook with built-ins by the window and an office nook on the other side. A separate dining area is across from the stairs, which has a small closet beneath. A pass-through window adds access to the kitchen, which has ample counter space despite its petite size and storage steps leading up to the backyard and brick patio. Both bedrooms off the skylit landing also have their own skylights, although the full bath is only accessible through the second bedroom.
