Property Description

Unique opportunity to own ?Memory House?, which is a landmark in Arlington, VA. It is a 1890s Victorian Queen Anne, Painted Lady, as seen in Bed and Breakfast magazine as well as Unique Inns of Virginia. The home is a rare and beautiful find and hasn?t been up on the market for 17 years. It sits high off of Washington Boulevard on a double lot that is two blocks from the Metro. The home has 3221 sq ft. and been restored over the years to maintain the authenticity of 19th-century architecture. The home retains much of its original architecture including built-in china cabinets; lighting fixtures both original and reproduction; historic style wallpaper from Bradbury & Bradbury; reproduction Wilton carpet; heart pine flooring; steam heat with ornate radiators; Two-zone Unico air conditioning; working transoms over the doors; and 10-foot ceilings throughout the home. The house, as formerly used, provided for 2 bedrooms and 2 bath master suites on the main level, 3 bedrooms and 1 bath on the upper level ( 2 of the upper bedrooms have individual sinks in the rooms), and 2 kitchens one on each level, which is ideal for entertaining or to accommodate guests. The basement is unfinished but is a very usable workspace and features a French drain system. The .29 acre property was open for the Virginia House and Garden Tour in 2006 to showcase the home and the meticulously landscaped yard and to see one of Arlington?s notable trees ? a beautiful flowering Horse-chestnut tree. There is an amazing feature that is truly unbelievable and one of a kind that has been preserved in the home that shows the original, pencil caricature pictures from the original builders. If you love Victoriana and the convenience of living 12 miles to DC, this is the perfect place to call home or to open its doors as an Airbnb. If you would like to explore this unique property, just call for a private showing!
