Hottest Property Award
Liberty House Alexandria
Located in historic Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, Liberty House was built in 1860 and completely transformed by owners Cameron and Noelle Foster. Having to maintain the historical architecture of the building – it’s now the perfect combination of historical and modern.
“Liberty House not only provided crisp, clear, high-quality visuals of the interior, but also had an antique map that showed the property’s location in a contextually relevant way. The photos were beautiful and had an editorial style about them.”
-Judge of category Rebecca Lombardo, TruPlace
