Mount Ida Estate Alexandria, VA

Mount Ida circa 1808

Known as “Mount Ida,” 305 Charles Alexander Court stands on a hill in the tradition of a neoclassical mansion and possesses distant views of the Potomac River and the hills of Washington, D.C. Built by Charles Alexander, a descendant of John Alexander for whom the City of Alexandria is named, the two-story home was originally situated on 6,000 acres and stretched along two miles of the Potomac. Architectural changes over the years have incorporated the classical tradition including plaster over masonry interior walls, antique chandeliers, arched doorways, Beaux Arts paneling and moldings, plaster friezes and a spectacular entryway, all the while including such modern amenities as a gourmet, eat-in kitchen with semiprecious granite counter tops, top-of-the-line double dishwashers, double ovens and double sinks. These features combined with ample off-street parking and elegant, spacious rooms provide an ideal setting for entertaining while maintaining the warmth and comfort of a home that is perfect for daily living. Located only 7 miles from The Capitol and minutes from Reagan National Airport and Old Town Alexandria, this premier property is adjacent to the Alexandria Country Day School and is only three blocks from the St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes lower school.
