Farmhouse Friday: Outside of DC

We’re taking our first business trip to Potomac, Maryland to visit our friend Katie this weekend! This “business trip” really just an excuse to go junking in Frederick, cook comfort food, stir up some delicious cocktails, and tablescape the weekend away. We couldn’t help but choose our favorite homes in the region for this Farmhouse Friday.

Old Town Alexandria, Virginia

Let’s start with some city living, in Alexandria, Virginia. This charming row house looks modest from the street, but is quite spacious inside. The house is on the Early Building Survey from the Historic Alexandria Foundation. I love the built-ins in the bedroom, the very well done renovation in the galley style kitchen, and the stunning brick-walled backyard.

Knoxville, Maryland (Near Frederick, MD)

Moving away from the city: I love this brick farmhouse, and it looks like the property includes a barn and three car garage/workshed.  The house boasts of six fireplaces, many of which are in the bedrooms.  I imagine long, cozy dinners with friends and family around the dinner table with a TWO roaring fires in the double fireplaces and views of the farmland surrounding.

  1. I’m so happy to see our local historical houses represented : ) I love the Old Town Alexandria house. There’s nothing more calming than white bedrooms. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the blogs from the weekend festivities!
