710 Duke Street
Alexandria, Virginia, United States

Description

This historic building, circa 1826, has evolved over the years...once Alexandria High School, then in 1865 becoming the Magnolia House, a hotel. In 1833 Richard Carne established St. John’s Military Academy and began classes and military drills. There are several original attendance ledger books from the Academy that will convey with the house.

This handsome townhouse in the heart of Old Town offers original hardwood floors, high ceilings, beautiful moldings, hand-blown glass panes in some windows and 3 important fireplaces. Renovations have been done with care by the current owners…new bathrooms, a handsome kitchen with wet bar, and a new laundry area, and an exceptional master suite with his and her bathrooms and extensive closets. The cupola atop this larger dome roof was first used to provide a lookout and admit light and air. Each December the current owners put a Christmas tree in the cupola…miniature lights glow as people walk by. Off-street parking for 2 cars completes this special property at St. John’s Square.

Type: End Townhouse, Style: Colonial, Levels: 4, Fireplaces: 3, 2 off-street parking spaces.
