Most Expensive Homes on the Market: A $5.8 Million Historic Colonial in Old Town

This Alexandria mansion was built in 1750.

This grand brick Colonial—also known as the Holland House, and situated on Wolfe Street in the heart of Alexandria’s Old Town—dates back to 1750 and boasts a seal from the Historic Alexandria Foundation and the official written history to prove it. Additions were completed in 1820 and 1930, and in 2010 the home went through an extensive renovation to incorporate modern amenities such as radiant heated floors, automated lights, an intercom, concealed entertainment systems, and an expanded kitchen. That’s in addition to the original and decorative detailing­­—which includes 11 fireplaces, elaborate crown, chair, and ceiling moldings, a wood-paneled library, and gold leafing on the dining-room ceiling. The four-bedroom, seven-bath home is spread across more than 6,200 square feet and sits on more than a quarter acre of land, a large lot for a tightly built area like Old Town. It’s listed at $5.8 million­­—or $6.1 million fully furnished, which includes the carefully curated period antiques, artwork, a signed Steinway piano, and a bronze statue of Thomas Jefferson in the garden. Take a look below, then go to TTR Sotheby’s for the complete tour.
