My name is Nesbitt Realty. I'd like to say that this unit in 22314 is a great purchase for $1,233,000 but I can't. That's because when one calculates the value of a home the single biggest variable is the buyer. If it's not the right home for my buyer client, it's not the right home.

Let's pause to sort through your priorities so that you can realistically conclude if purchasing a home in Northern Virginia is for you. There are many factors to consider.

  • The highest priced condominium at 1201 N Royal St #508 is listed for $8,900,000. Do you know if 1201 N Royal St #508 is a good value?
  • How many baths do you need? 1201 N Royal St #508 has 2 full baths. What about half baths? 1201 N Royal St #508 has 0 half baths.
  • Homes around 1201 N Royal St #508 were built around 2003. How old is too old? How new is too new?

319 Wolfe St

Lock in today’s LOW interest rates and pricing! (Sale subject to lease thru 6/30/21) This amazing historic (circa 1770) detached home in the heart of Old Town was completely renovated in 2018, preserving much of the historic charm and character while adding today’s modern conveniences. Pass through the custom wood gates and experience something rarely found in Old Town . . . a front courtyard. Then enter the home and immediately be wowed by the original heart pine 14″ wide plank floors. There are original fireplaces (decorative) in the living and dining rooms. Exposed beams and brick walls are enhanced with walnut counters, copper sink and custom cabinetry to create a kitchen any cook will enjoy! Or grill and entertain in the private rear courtyard with slate patio. The home offers a flexible floor plan, allowing for the comfort of working from home. Both the front living room/den and the back bedroom with built-in bookcases would make great office space. Located just 3 blocks from the river and 3 blocks from King Street, so leave your car at home and stroll to the shops and restaurants. Come enjoy the Old Town lifestyle! (There’s quite a documented history to this home. Washington socialite Joan Haley obtained one of the first FHA renovation loans given to a woman, and she renovated the home in the 1930s. The home was then featured in the 1937 Alexandria Homes Tour.) [Old Town$1,250,000]
