An expansive historic home is on the market in Old Town Alexandria for the first time in 40 years. Listed in the Historic American Building Survey, the four-story Roberdeau house has eight fireplaces, six bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms and a basement.
Daniel Roberdeau, a wealthy merchant and one of the signers of the Articles of Confederation, built the home in the late 1700s. The 6,000-square-foot home has views of the Potomac River.
“The Roberdeau House is elegant and full of history,” said real estate agent Babs Beckwith of McEnearney Associates, Inc. “It is located in one of the most desired areas of Old Town Alexandria and … is surrounded by a garden on three sides of the home.”
Many of the home’s original features, including the floors, a staircase with a shadow rail, moldings and door casings, are still intact. The home has 11-foot ceilings, built-in bookcases and a built-in china cabinet.
Roberdeau is located on South Lee Street, has off-street parking for two cars and is listed for $3.7 million.
