An Extraordinary House of the Day on Old Town Alexandria’s Captain’s Row

IMG_3607
I was out this past week covering some of the many events down by the waterfront when I stopped to snap this 1789 house on Captain’s Row in the Alexandria, Virginia Historic District. You can see our previous homes chosen as the ‘House of the Day’ at this link.

The home has at least one star anchor, the end pieces of wrought-iron bars that support the walls of masonry structures, holding the walls together to the home interior.

Here’s what else I love about the house…

Love the woodworking around the front door.

Love that this home has a bench out front.
