Welcome Home ....This classic all brick home is sited perfectly on a 1.2 acre lot. Every time you drive into your circular driveway, lined with mature English boxwoods, you feel as if you are in the Virginia countryside. This very special home is located in a part of Alexandria that most people don't even know is there. The community consists of a total of eight homes, all of which are on a minimum of one acre. There are strollers, bikers, joggers, dog walkers and the neighbors. Other than that, it's just the delivery folks passing by. It's a private oasis in the city of Alexandria. The one level living is perfect for scaling down as well as just starting out. The current residents, who have been raising their children there for five years, are moving back to their roots in another state. The original owners resided there for 61 years. Once there, it is very difficult to leave, as it is so unique. A center hall invites all who enter and separates the living room, dining room and the kitchen from the private sleeping quarters. To the right of the entry, the large living room is flooded with natural light from the expansive south facing window, which is just opposite from the traditional fireplace. The formal dining room is large enough to house all those holiday celebrations. Across the rear of the house is the extremely spacious and efficient kitchen offering yards of marble countertops and painted white cabinetry. A built-in window seat is where much of your time will be spent...whether it's overseeing school projects, everyday dining or just chatting while preparing meals. Just off the kitchen is a family room with a raised hearth fireplace and beautiful stone floor. This room is perfect for gaming, movie watching and gathering with family and friends. With full access to the rear patio, detached garage and yard, it is very convenient for outdoor activities such as grilling and dining. A convenient laundry and storage room is just off the kitchen as well. Just on the other side of the hallway you will find four bedrooms and three remodeled baths. There's plenty of room for everyone. The primary bedroom boasts a large shower and double sinks and a traditional marble floor. The hall bath, shared by two of the bedrooms also presents double vanities and plenty of space to move around. The front bedroom, currently shown as an office/study, with its own bath, is ideal for those overnight guests and extended family visits as well. The magic of this property truly comes alive when you step into the yard, canopied by old Oak trees, and tons of play space. There is a large concrete area that is perfect for a basketball or pickle ball court. Additionally, you have plenty of space for your own pool, just like five of the neighbors have. Access to all the major roadways is so close, cutting your commuting time considerably. There are three high schools, two middle schools and one elementary school under construction all less than two miles from this home... making drop offs and pick ups so convenient.
