Union Station was not built until 1908 and many of the rowhouses that pepper D.C. streets today were built between 1900 and 1915. Even the Washington Monument didn't begin construction until 1848. But this house on Queen Street in Alexandria? It's been around since 1810. That's right, the second and third presidents of the United States were still alive when this four bedroom home was built and the fourth had just started his second year in office. Clearly the 2,072 square foot home has been renovated but the wooden floors and fireplace are original. The kitchen also pays a great homage to the floors by utilizing a similar type of wood for the paneling on the walls and cabinets. Ask for this home from the early years of American independence is $1.2 million.
