Chic and comfortable! A fresh look at and price of 505 South Fairfax Street will AMAZE you! See how 21st century belongings fit into and enhance this residence of the United States' early historic years. Residents in the 1820s enjoyed this solid, though modest, frame home which was refined and expanded years later with a brick addition, almost doubling its size. Shutters frame the windows of this end townhouse with coach lanterns flanking the entryway. Period wood floors traverse the original portion of the house, with reclaimed wood in the newer sections. This SE Quadrant home in Old Town offers a special feeling of years gone by blended with unique 21st century conveniences. Set on a bright, lush lot, you'll be surprised by the depth of the home and with its comfortably large living spaces. You will find built-in bookshelves and cupboards at every turn. A former exterior window opening into a lightwell brings generous light to the original rooms and the well-designed kitchen with sparkling white cupboards, handsome granite counters, stainless appliances, recessed lighting, casual eating space and an additional breakfast nook. Just beyond is a gracious family room with wood-burning fireplace adorned with shelf mantel and flanked by shelves, cupboards and a built-in desk. French doors open to a wide rear deck with steps descending to a lushly-planted brick patio with flower beds and a gate to Wilkes Street. A cooling, decorative pond (now covered) could be reopened to welcome water lilies and the like. Upstairs, split doors open to the exceptionally private master suite that includes a sky-lit ceramic tile bath, two walk-in organized closets and a spacious bedroom with beamed ceiling, wood-burning fireplace adorned with mantel and ceiling fan. Do not miss the Palladian window offering glorious views of the garden. Two additional bedrooms and another bath comfortably complete this level. The lower level is quite a surprise -- a recreation room with beamed ceiling, numerous storage closets, including a cedar closet, and decorative fireplace presents a wonderful spot for hobbies, playtime or home office while a laundry/utility room has easy access to the kitchen. In the SE Quadrant of Old Town, this location offers bustling activity in shops and restaurants, intrigue with cobblestone streets, important landmarks and stately, comfortable homes, all seemingly untouched by time. Enjoy convenient parks, Potomac River, grocery stores, churches and mass transportation. There is even a popular public elementary school, Lyles-Crouch Traditional Academy, just a few blocks away, as well as St. Mary's Elementary School also in the SE Quadrant. Here is perfectly easy living with a rich heritage.
