Overview

Perfection as a Pied de Terre or full-time home. Just Listed! This striking four-story building at the corner of Prince and South Fairfax Streets in Alexandria's SE Quadrant is well-known as Old Town's treasured jewel. Called Greens Steam Furniture Works Condominium, the circa 1790 building at 200 South Fairfax Street has quite a history from making bentwood rockers, wardrobes and shoes, healing soldiers in the Civil War, and later as a foreign car service, even the showroom for the wacky road and water-traveling Amphicar in the 1960s. It was carefully designed as 16 residences in 1977-1978, by the revered local...
builders Ellsworth & Howell, who included covered parking and an interior patio garden for enjoyment and light. Over the years, owners have applied creative architecture to combine certain properties, meaning that there are now 12 unique properties within the building. HOORAY -- you have an opportunity to live the soft urban city life imagine Paris, New York or Florence such style, all in the very best location in town. Ready for your delighted inspection is Residence #6 a bright joy to behold on one-level, accessed by a flight of stairs from the lobby or a quick elevator ride. 7 large windows shine upon this totally renovated wonder -- the owners transfer means that new owners will benefit from professional work accomplished here using talented construction crews and the best materials. See the brochure for the long list of important improvements. The gated garage offers reserved parking space #6 and storage, as well as another elevator for those heavier loads of wine cases or groceries. The wide steps on the buildings exterior enter into the recently redone lobby, accessible with a key fob. Common spaces are professionally cleaned twice a week. The patio garden, just steps away from #6, is for all owners use for reading, working or sipping bubbly after work. If someone really must have 2 bedrooms, simply add French doors and put hanging rods in the built-in cabinetry. The music/library/guest area is wonderful just to explain the possibilities, we are calling this a 2-bedroom residence -- meanwhile, it is such a great, sunny office and guest retreat now. The neighbors are well-traveled, lovely and quite fun (I know because I live there - Ann D). It is a quiet building in fine repair and under experienced management. Won't you be my neighbor?
