About this home: Built in 1800, by Reuben Johnston, who built 214, 216 and 218 South Royal, the charming brick home sits on one of Alexandria’s original town lots, 1 1/2 blocks off King Street, a commercial street since the 1800’s. 218 is the largest of the 3 houses and the only one that’s semi-detached, now with parking on the south side. It is also one of the first thousand houses in Alexandria with running water! One of the early owners of 218, circa 1844, was William Wallace Adam, a silversmith. With its rectangular shape and 2 stories, the house exemplifies the Federal style of the 1820-1830’s, but its dentil cornice along the roof line and transom ornamentation above the entry door are reflective of the Georgian period of architecture. Many original details of this gem include an original front staircase, original floors throughout, original solid 6-panel entry doors and casings in the living and dining room, plus 2 original fireplace mantles in both rooms supported by reeded pilasters. Upstairs await 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 full baths.
