About The Property
220 Hollis Alley
Weave yourself into Old Town’s rich historic tapestry in this distinctive 4-level, open floor plan, detached Colonial that is 220 Hollis Alley. Nestled in a quiet alley, you’ll enjoy easy access to both Old Town and Del Ray — and with a privately fenced backyard large enough for dining and tending a small garden, staying in for the evening is more appealing than ever!
This home’s distinctive design is evident from the front stoop, and there’s more to love inside. Expertly positioned windows usher in radiant sunlight that illuminates the glossy pine flooring and tidy pine and white staircase. New paint, stained glass accents and designer lighting, from a chandelier and pendants to wall sconces, keep the space bright from top to bottom floor. A gas fireplace in the living room adds ambiance and warmth, and floor-to-ceiling built-ins showcase your library and collections.
The gourmet kitchen gleams with granite countertops and tall, 42-inch cabinets. Your gas range has an impressive stove hood set against artful tile backsplash. Meal prep at the counter comes with a view! Two large windows bring natural light into the space, where you can linger with coffee at the kitchen island, or in the adjacent space with room for a café table and chairs.
Three bedrooms with two full baths and two half-baths ensure you’ll have plenty of space for everyday living and weekend entertaining when friends and family come to enjoy DC. Historic district woes about parking and storage are no concern here: There’s dedicated off-street parking in front of the house, securing your easy pathway from car to door, and street parking serves your guests. As for storage, there are closets throughout, as well as organizational space on the terrace and third level. Your finished lower level can be accessed privately from the patio, and the space within is ideal for guest quarters and/or office and entertainment space.
Nearby grocery and boutique shopping mean you can leave the car at home when stepping out into Old Town. Slip into your dress shoes for an evening at one of the neighborhood’s top-rated restaurants, or lace up your running shoes for a walk to the waterfront, where you can join the tree-lined Mt. Vernon trail for a run or bike ride. For even more recreation, the neighborhood offers playground space and a swimming pool.
