This charming 3-level townhouse is an Old Town rarity: picturesque brick charm that’s been completely renovated to align historic tastes with contemporary sensibilities. It’s easy to love this home the moment you set eyes on its unique front porch, with room for rocking chairs and the implicit invitation for lemonade on a warm spring afternoon. Beyond the appeal of the front porch, there’s the practical consideration of two parking spaces — and readily available street parking.
Inside, this home is an entertainer’s dream. The first level has been renovated with an open floor plan and large kitchen. Plantation shutters adorn windows throughout the house, and those aren’t the only custom upgrade. Custom closets with Elfa shelving make long-term storage and everyday wardrobe organization a breeze. On the lower level, the finished space offers additional storage beneath the stairwell and there’s room for media, exercise or guest quarters.
The well-manicured front and back lawns are evidence of expert landscaping, and in the backyard, you’ll also find a spacious deck. Extend your outdoor recreation beyond the backyard by venturing to nearby Jones Point Park, or go for a walk along the Mt. Vernon trail, which hugs the scenic Potomac River. King Street is a short 3-block walk away, and while you’ll have access to dining and shopping options galore, you’ll treasure the quiet neighborhood in which 402 S. Pitt is nestled.

One of the most unique neighborhoods in America, Old Town Alexandria is full of history. The community is home to more than 4,200 historic buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries, with sea ports on the Potomac River that were regularly used during the colonial and revolutionary periods. You can easily see history’s impact on the area, in everything from Old Town Alexandria real estate to the small-town feeling that it still holds today.
With a quaint small town atmosphere and the flair of city living, this waterfront town is the perfect place for residents of all ages and lifestyles. Just minutes from downtown Washington DC, close to a major airport, and central transportation running throughout the area, it’s easy to enjoy everything Old Town has to offer. It’s very walkable, so we recommend strolling along the cobblestone streets to get a true feel for the neighborhood.
Don’t miss out on the Saturday Farmers’ Market at Market Square, where you can pick up fresh produce and local products. What’s even better is seeing the familiar vendors and friendly faces week after week, adding even more of a small-town feel to this sweet community. Fun fact: this market is the longest running one in the USA; even George Washington used to sell products there! You’ll also want to stop by Grape + Bean for a cup of coffee, or glass of wine. It’s a true neighborhood treasure!
