About This Property

Located inside the Beltway in desirable Alexandria, VA., this elegant 5 Bed, 4 Bath, contemporary split-level home with over 3,000 sq. ft. (and 21 sq. Ft. breezeway) is truly a rare find. Built in 1953 on nearly an acre, it has been exceptionally renovated and expanded by the current owner. The renovation and expansion include the additions of a sun-filled dining room (with vaulted ceiling), an expanded and masterfully-built kitchen, an in-law suite, and a 720 sq. Ft. 3-car garage. Meticulously maintained, this home is perched and spread out atop a gorgeously landscaped private lot on a quiet, tree-lined dead-end street. A charming entrance welcomes you to the home with a living room enveloped in windows and a side powder room. Moving through the first level, a formal dining room, chef's kitchen, and large family room seamlessly flow to combine with the living room and back patio for multiple and spacious entertaining areas. An updated chef's kitchen with granite counter-tops and backsplashes, two sinks, island, refined cabinetry, and a dinette more than satisfy your everyday needs. Just off the kitchen, a short set of stairs leads to a unique, owner-designed dining room (with a 13 Ft.+ vaulted ceiling and abundant windows), creating an exceptional dining experience. The dining room doors open to a flagstone patio with a large backyard that will accommodate all your social gatherings. Next to the kitchen is a comfortably spacious family room with a wall of windows, sliding glass door to the front yard, and a wood-burning brick fireplace. Past the family room, five tranquil and tucked-away bedrooms separate from the home's entertaining areas to create fantastic privacy for both owners and guests. Two bedrooms, featuring upgraded closets along with an office abut a long hallway leading to the owner's suite. At the end of the hall and up a level is the beautiful master suite with plush carpeting, a large, walk-in closet, and a private patio deck overlooking the home's quiet picturesque wooded lot. An upgraded en-suite bath features two separate sinks, a large walk-in shower with multiple water features, and a vaulted ceiling with windows. The lower-level in-law suite has a separate entrance, bath, living area (wired for a home theater), and laundry to suit all guest needs. A breezeway off the living room leads to an over-sized 3-car garage with plenty of storage, including a hidden entrance that leads to an insulated and spacious lighted area suitable for additional storage. The home also includes a giant 2-story storage room and workshop accessible from the back of the house. With a newer roof, updated windows, new asphalt driveway, FiOS fiber-optic high-speed internet service, and a dual fuel gas/electric stove line, this home has it all and potential for more. Exceptional location in close proximity to Amazon HQ2 (7.9 mi), National Airport (8.3 mi), Arlington (9.7 mi), Tyson's Corner (11.6 mi), and Washington, DC (11.3 mi). Grocery stores, pharmacies, and Home Depot all within five miles.
