Highest Single Family Sale in Old Town Alexandria

Mary Ellen Rotondo of McEnearney Associates represented the seller and Janet Caterson Price of McEnearney Associates represented the buyer of 217 South Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314.

This notable transaction is the highest single family home sale in Old Town Alexandria since 2008, at $4,825,000. As one of Old Town’s most distinguished and historic properties, 217 South Fairfax was built circa 1780 and underwent an extensive expansion that preserved the historic elements of the home while incorporating modern amenities, such as the smokehouse conversion into a cutting-edge office. With more than 8,000 square feet of modern luxury living, the home features six bedrooms, six and a half baths, and impressive rooms for entertaining including a subterranean media center.

“217 S Fairfax is among the finest properties in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia region. Winning the listing and positioning the historic property to attract the right buyer required extensive research, marketing acumen and business savvy,” said Mary Ellen Rotondo.

“The estate is a property like no other — its stewards have fashioned and stylized it with a deep respect for the past and with chic current living standards,” said Janet Caterson Price.
