Timeless living in this elegant 7000 sq ft home which offers an abundance of history and modern amenities. This unique home offers space for large scale entertaining or for comfortable family living. With 4/5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a handsome library with fireplace, formal parlor and dining room plus a family room, den, homework station, custom bar, mud room and rec room. All with uncompromising finishes. This home offers America's finest and will surpass everyone's expectations. The private heated pool, stone terrace, garden and expansive porch allow for comfortable outdoor living and relaxation. When the sellers bought this 1880s red-brick farm house in 1989 it had remained largely untouched since the day it was built. High ceilings, center gables front and back and a wraparound porch give this home all the charm and warmth of an old home, now with the modern flow and function a home needs, thanks to a picture-perfect addition. A century ago, this home was situated one of the best lots in Alexandria - 25 acres, on a hill, overlooking Old Town and The Potomac River. It is only fitting a home as prestigious as this one has had some well-appointed owners. The Broders Family owned the land/home in the 1890s, Charles Carlin, US Congressman representing the 8th congressional district, and owner of the Alexandria Gazette, married Lilian E. Broders in 1891 and together built this magnificent home. The CarlinĂ¢s raised their family here, their son Charles Jr. eventually took over the Alexandria Gazette and lived in the home until the 1960s. There are many stories around Alexandria about wild parties on the porches at 1400 Orchard Street in the 1920s with the Congressman and his family. The sellers stopped at no expense to ensure this historic home stayed true to itself. The four-story addition with its brick cladding and one-story enclosed porch is hard to distinguish from the original Victorian-era house. Moldings and wood trim for the addition were custom milled to match the original woodwork and new floors of reclaimed heart pine match the restored floors of the original house. The kitchen, as published in This Old House and the Washingtonian, boast Quality Custom Cabinetry cabinets, Calcatta-gold marble counter tops, custom-made LaCanche Sully model range, hand-painted ceramic tile backsplash, and Waterworks faucets.
