The original owners of 2875 Lowen Valley Road spared little expense. In turn, when you step into this South Alex address, you’re not stepping into merely a home, but a showplace. While the myriad upgrades throughout this oversized end unit make it wonderfully unique, they also add new dimensions of style, comfort, convenience, and technology. Working our way up, we can start on the lowest level. Here you’ll find not only a two-car garage, but an upgraded full-size bath and an audiophile’s home theater. Moving to the main floor, you’ll enjoy the spacious balcony, extra end-unit windows – outfitted, like most of the home’s windows, in custom shutters – and a gourmet upgraded kitchen, for starters. Moving higher, find three bedrooms, one of which includes soundproofing and extra audio wiring. Another has served beautifully as a home office. The owner’s en suite, upgraded bath alone should leave you breathless! Higher still, the fourth bedroom could be used for just that, or in any number of ways. Private library? Artist’s studio? An incredible amount of space comes with an incredible number of options. Why not sit and think it over on the stunning roof deck, with its sweeping westward views? Extend the automatic SunSetter® awning and you’ll be sitting pretty!
The City of Alexandria is located in Northern Virginia south across the Potomac River from Washington D.C. The city encompasses 15.75 square miles at an average elevation of 30 feet above sea level. Founded in 1749, Alexandria has a fascinating history, and many of its historic buildings are still preserved today. During its long history, Alexandria was a tobacco trading post, one of the ten busiest ports in America, a part of the District of Columbia, home to both the largest slave-trading firm in the country and a large free-black community, a Civil War supply center for Union troops, and a street-car suburb for Federal workers. Alexandria was also the hometown of George Washington, Robert E. Lee, Jim Morrison and “Mama” Cass Elliot. On the Potomac River within eyesight of Washington, DC, Alexandria, VA is nationally recognized for its rich history and beautifully preserved 18th- and 19th-century architecture – an extraordinary backdrop for acclaimed, chef-driven restaurants; a thriving boutique scene; vibrant arts and culture; and a welcoming, walkable lifestyle. Alexandria is the relaxed and refined home base for your DC vacation and an unforgettable getaway of its own.
Located at 301 King Street, Alexandria City Hall was erected on the site designated for the market and city hall when Alexandria was founded in 1749. The tall, steepled tower, which contrasts with the building’s Second Empire-style massing and detailing, is a reconstruction of a tower designed by Benjamin H. Latrobe that was part of Alexandria’s 1817 town hall. That hall burned in 1871, necessitating the construction of the current building, designed by Adolph Cluss, a locally prominent architect who had designed the U.S. Department of Agriculture building in 1869 and Washington’s Central Market in 1870. With more than 250 years of history and hospitality to its credit, Alexandria offers an array of historic and cultural attractions. The Alexandria neighborhoods include Old Town, Del Ray, Carlyle/Eisenhower and West End. Alexandria’s many historic homes, churches, businesses and museums allow residents and visitors alike to experience the hand of the past that makes our city the charming and historic town it is today.
