218 S Royal St

218 South Royal Street enjoys a storied provenance and prime location right in the heart of Old Town. Built in 1800, by Reuben Johnston, who built 214, 216 and 218 South Royal, the charming brick home sits on one of Alexandria~s original town lots, 1 1/2 blocks off King Street, a commercial street since the 1800's.218 is the largest of the 3 houses and the only one that~s semi-detached, now with parking on the south side. It is also one of the first thousand houses in Alexandria with running water! Back in the day, a stable was situated behind 218 and 216. Horses walked down the path between 218 and 220 (now a side garden/inner courtyard for 218 plus off-street parking) to access the stable in the rear.One of the early owners of 218, circa 1844, was William Wallace Adam, a silversmith. With its rectangular shape and 2 stories, the house exemplifies the Federal style of the 1820-1830's, but its dentil cornice along the roof line and transom ornamentation above the entry door are reflective of the Georgian period of architecture. Lovely flower boxes line the windows, graced by classic shutters. Many original details of this gem include an original front staircase, original floors throughout, original solid 6-panel entry doors and casings in the living and dining room,plus 2 original fireplace mantles in both rooms supported by reeded pilasters. Old meets new in the recently renovated eat-in kitchen with wood cabinetry, a furniture island, copper sink, and bow window facing the inner courtyard with fountain. Adjoining is a sunny family room with built-in wood cabinets flanking the raised fireplace, and a full bath. A small light-filled room with skylights and 3 windows beyond the family room, perfect as an office,overlooks the pool and plantings. Upstairs await 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 full baths. The master suite has a fireplace,window seat, his and her bathrooms, and separate newer private staircase to the first floor. Storage is very extensive for a historic home. Outdoors is delightful, with an L-shaped in-ground pool area with mature plantings, brick patio, and outdoor kitchen with natural gas line and a refrigerator for entertaining. Fireplaces convey as is.
