Majestically set on a premium double lot with walled gardens, the Bayne-Fowle House is located in an area of Old Town Alexandria known for some of the most important historic homes.

Built by a successful merchant in 1854, this 8,600 square foot home exemplifies the finest in 19th century architectural design and craftsmanship. Additionally, the Bayne-Fowle House has benefitted from a spectacular recent renovation which honors those rarified elements while creating a home with lightness and elegance that is perfectly attuned to today's lifestyle.

A sandstone staircase with wrought iron gas lamps and railings complements the elegant window-lined facade constructed of brick with a coursed ashlar veneer. The primary entrance to the home welcomes guests to a vestibule area and a full-length foyer beyond which showcases a graceful open-stringer staircase with an elliptical handrail.

The handsome foyer opens to the residence's stunning living room, dining room and family room with marble fireplace mantles and period plaster cornices adorning the 12' ceilings. Full-length windows with original interior folding shutters and a pair of original gilt pier mirrors reflect the expansive floor plan. Pocket doors between these areas provide the option for creating intimate spaces or joining the multiple rooms for a more open floor plan. Triple Niermann Weeks chandeliers unite the three rooms.

A beautiful breakfast room, conservatory and a newly renovated kitchen provide views of the landscaped walled gardens enhanced by eastern exposure morning light. The magnificent custom designed Christiana chef's kitchen features white marble double ogee countertops along with top-of-the-line appliances. Adjacent to the kitchen is a lovely breakfast room with 14' ceilings and expansive bay windows. The breakfast room opens to a window-lined conservatory with scalloped window shelves, thought to be original to the home, and arched glass window paned doors opening to the garden area. A charming bright office with custom fitted cabinetry and a painted geometric pattern floor provides access to the garden's private courtyard. Also on this level is a stunning French-inspired powder room with stone basin and floor.

The second level offers three large bedrooms with ensuite fireplaces, custom shades and gorgeous draperies. Two full bathrooms and a spacious laundry room with ample storage complete this level.

A window-lined sitting area with views of the historic homes facing 811 Prince provides a welcome to the Owner's Suite. The primary suite level offers a luxurious bedroom with an exquisite painted mural of the Potomac River and a fireplace. The elegant bathroom, with double vanities, has a marble fireplace, a spa tub with marble backdrop, a glass enclosed shower and a private water closet. The Architectural Digest design-worthy dressing room is beyond compare. A Niermann Weeks chandelier delicately illuminates the marble topped center island and the beautifully designed custom cabinetry with inset mirrors. An additional laundry room completes this level along with a nicely appointed elevator with full home access.

A staircase to the uppermost level leads to a finished room with exposed brick walls. The unfinished area on this level is truly fascinating as one can see the top of the historic oculus skylight and the graffiti believed to have been written by Civil War soldiers.

The lower level of the residence offers a handsome second family room or entertaining area. A 1,600-bottle temperature-controlled wine room, a gym and a full bath can be found on this level.
