Old Town Alexandria’s Colonial-era streets are known for their mix of eclectic shops, galleries and restaurants, proximity to the Potomac River, and historic homes.

Newly built houses are a rarity in this area, where Wakefield Homes recently began sales on Ellsworth Row, a townhouse development with four new units and one renovated resale townhouse that was built in 1880.

All five residences, priced from $1.325 million to $1.495 million, have modern interior features, including open floor plans, a rooftop deck and off-street parking, a highly desirable amenity in this part of Alexandria. The residences were designed by Kulinski Group Architects and built in partnership with Genuario Properties.

Ellsworth Row, at 204 through 212 S. Patrick St., is within walking distance of shops and restaurants in Old Town as well as the King Street Metro station.

The townhouses have four bedrooms and four bathrooms, with hardwood flooring, oak stairs, nine- and 10-foot-high ceilings, a gas fireplace in the family room, crown moldings, granite or marble vanity tops in the master bathrooms and stone counters with maple cabinets, and gas cooking and stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen.

The four new townhouses each have four finished levels and are National Green Building Standard certified at the Silver level.
