About 3638 Duke St

There’s something extra special about a home with a bit of accompanying “history”. 3638 Duke Street is one of three homes built by the Cockrell family on land near the intersection of Quaker and Duke Streets that once included a family farm and mill. The mill used water from Holmes Run while corn was shipped in via the railroad allowing the Cockrells to offer feed within its feed store. As the twentieth century wore on, the next generation converted it to a hardware store where many Alexandrians shopped before the advent of Hechinger's and Home Depot. The Cockrell extended family lived in the three homes enjoying the proximity of their livelihood and camaraderie of family for many years. It's your turn now to enjoy one of those homes - a 1960’s Rambler style home built into a slight incline revealing a walk-out daylight lower level. Wood floors grace the main level where you will find formal rooms of living and dining, an eat-in kitchen, two bedrooms and two baths, all awaiting your designer touch. The lower level includes yet another bedroom and bath as well as a recreation room and laundry. For cool weather ambiance, fireplaces can be found in the living room and recreation room. Set on almost a third of an acre, screened by lush evergreen trees and set back from Duke Street with beautiful landscaping and extensive lawn, this inviting brick home features ivory shutters on each of the four windows flanking the inset front door approached by a gracious brick walkway. A canopy of deciduous trees and plantings adds to the serene environment. Within an ivied enclosure behind the house is an equally tranquil flagstone patio easily accessed from indoors through double French doors with sidelights or a fanciful gate to the rear garden which is surrounded by planting beds with continued canopy. The home does include a garage, presently used solely for storage, but could be returned to vehicle use by the relocation of the existing garden shed. Centrally aired and heated with hot water, this enchanting home has a new roof and is being sold “as is”. Its location offers ready access to shopping and schools as well as nearby major avenues into Old Town Alexandria and the District. This residence truly reflects “where the heart is”. Don’t miss your opportunity to make it yours.
