At first glance, this Old Town Alexandria abode with its classic brick façade blends in with all of the other traditional row houses on Payne Street: An iron handrail leads up its wooden steps to a dove-grey door.
But inside, the cozy-yet-modern, two-bedroom blends rustic farmhouse details with high-end furnishings and a faintly hip vibe for something fresh.
Wood beams criss-cross the 1870’s construction throughout the main living room and bedrooms. A master bedroom includes a wall of dramatic dark wood and the bathrooms are airy, sun-soaked spaces of white subway tile and natural tones. Almost everywhere you turn there is unexpected accents of exposed brick and wood.
Downstairs, a sprawling basement hideout features treated concrete floors and a built-in wall-length storage cabinet echoing the style of 70’s record cases, plus a multifunction laundry/bar area—it’s an area practically begging for some mid-century modern seating, a floor pillows scattered over a thick shag rug, and a few friends to mellow out over some good tunes.
