Open Housing

Almost every single weekend we like to stalk the local Old Town house listings to see what is new to the market and what is going to be open each Sunday. If an old house peaks our interest, we head out to snoop around, rain or shine, freezing cold or blistering sun. We're obsessed, we know, but we're passionate about these old homes. Every time we check out a house we think you'll like (or really hate), we'll share it here in our "Open Housing" section.
In our never-ending quest to see the inside of nearly every house in Old Town Alexandria, Wendy and I are quite familiar with the area. When we learn of a local open house, a quick glance at the address usually sparks a discussion where we can easily identify the specific house in...

When Wendy and I see an interesting open house listing on any given weekend, we often have certain expectations for the interior based on the location and the general appearance of the exterior. Though we can't help ourselves to judge the book house by its cover, we also realize that...

Over the last few weeks the number of amazing historic houses in the Old Town Alexandria real estate market has exploded. You can probably give most of the credit to the nicer weather, and the fact the housing market in our area really hasn't softened all that much. What does...

It’s not often that a home in the heart of the historic district of Old Town that was built before the United States was a country comes on the market. It’s even less often that a home in this category is held as an open house. Well, last weekend was...

When Wendy and I look through the open house listings for any given weekend, we typically look for one of two things. We’re primarily interested in houses that are either significantly old or seem particularly impressive. This past weekend we were quite happy when we looked at Redfin.com (our go-to...

After a fairly lengthly hiatus on our weekly open house features, one came up in the listings this weekend that Wendy and I have been wanting to see for some time. It's been open a time or two over the past two months, but we've been so busy or had...

Up until this point, each of our Open Housing posts have featured homes in Old Town Alexandria, for better or worse, to help give our readers the inside look at some of the gems in our area. But as some of you may know, there's a piece of my heart...

It's not often one get's the opportunity to purchase an exquisite piece of American history, and if you have about $6,000,000 burning a hole in your money bin, this is your opportunity. For the rest of us, we'll just have to observe from the sidelines, but we'll have some fun...
