Welcome to the historic Lafayette House, named for the famous Revolutionary Frenchman, the Marquis de Lafayette,who came to the aid of our young country during its fight for Independence.

301 S Saint Asaph St

The Marquis de Lafayette returned to Alexandria in 1824 and stayed at this gracious brick residence during his visit. The house is entirely free standing with private walled gardens to the south of the house and off street parking for three cars. Built in 1815-1817 by Thomas Lawrason, it has been home to a number of notable American families, including Lawrence and Nelly Custis Lewis, who was the granddaughter of Martha Washington. The house is built in the Federal style, and boasts one of the most famous doorways in Old Town with its arched transom above the double doors. The grand entrance hall stretches 34 feet from end to end, with twelve foot ceilings, archways and two doors to the double parlors, each with wood burning fireplaces, original heart pine floors and original mahogany pocket doors to separate the rooms as needed. Through the hyphen, which connects the formal parlors to the rest of the house, is the banquet sized dining room, which was enlarged during an 1850 renovation and rumored to be the location of the creation of the state of West Virginia in the 1860’s. Beyond the dining room is a large kitchen, boasting an original cooking fireplace, modern stainless steel appliances, custom granite countertops and both a breakfast room and back staircase to the second floor bedroom area. The second floor offers a grand master bedroom and bath, a second bedroom or sitting room, where the Marquis de Lafayette stayed during his visit, as well as a large library and two additional bedrooms and bath. The upper level offers two additional bedrooms and bath and views of the City. When this house was originally built, the owner would often look down from the widow’s walk on the rooftop to see his ships arrive in the port city of Old Town.While the house itself offers over 6,000 square feet of gracious living space, there is also a floored walk up attic and a brick floored basement with over 2,000 square feet of space – possibly a future wine cellar! There are 11 wood burning fireplaces in the house and gated access to the walled garden both from and rear. The gardens were designed by a Scotsman, believed to have been visiting the area while the house was being built and offers brick pathways, a serene pond and gazebo. A rare historic home with grand entertaining rooms, private retreats, a serene walled garden and off street parking. [Old Town$3,950,000]
