Description

California Style Meets Colonial Warmth

This stately home makes an immediate impression of style and grace, but it’s the interior floor plan that sets this home apart from all the rest.

The dramatic two story entry foyer instantly draws your eye to the curved staircase leading to the upper level hallway balcony, while simultaneously inviting you into the formal living and dining rooms which are flooded with natural sunlight from the over-sized windows in both rooms. The foyer also leads to the spacious gourmet kitchen with cooking island, eat in area opening to the deck in the back and into the contemporary styled family room with soaring two-story ceilings, Palladian windows and wood burning fireplace. The deck leads to the beautifully landscaped rear gardens maintained on a seasonal basis by an in-ground irrigation system. The garage is accessed from the kitchen through a pantry/laundry/mud room discreetly tucked off the hallway to the foyer along with a powder room.

The upper level boasts the balcony overlooking the entry foyer as well as a landing alcove overlooking the family room, previously used by the owners as a music practice area. The master bedroom is delightfully spacious and offers a sumptuous bath with soaking tub and separate shower overlooking the woodsy back and a walk-in closet. Two bedrooms on this level share a Jack-n-Jill bath while a fourth bedroom offers a private en suite bath.

The lower level is completely finished into a very versatile rec room easily divided into a cozy media area, crafts room and overflow space for quests, with a full bath and walk out stairs to the back gardens. The spacious two car garage offers extra space for storage, as does the storage room on the lower level. All in all, this is a classic home with a distinctly contemporary flair ~ often a rarity in close in Alexandria.

Alexandria - Parkway/Ft. Hunt

The area takes its name from a post-Civil War era fort constructed near the banks of the Potomac River that was intended to compliment the defenses of Washington, DC with Ft. Washington on the opposite side of the river.  Ft. Hunt was even home to a top secret military intelligence operation during World War II.  While no shots were ever fired in anger, the remains of the facility are the centerpiece of the sprawling Ft. Hunt Park.  The George Washington Parkway is a beautiful ribbon of road that runs through the community towards George Washington’s Mt. Vernon to the south, offering incredible vistas of the Potomac River.  There are beautiful communities of primarily single family detached homes to the west of the Parkway, including Hollin Hills, a neighborhood of roughly 450 homes designed by Charles Goodman immediately after World War II.  It is considered a landmark of contemporary design.

Quality of Life:

Parks, scenic vistas of the Potomac River and the walking and biking trail that runs from Mt. Vernon to Rosslyn right through Ft. Hunt are the anchors for this beautiful community. While there a handful of townhomes, almost every dwelling is a detached home, ranging from 1950's construction to magnificent new homes overlooking the river. And the incredible variety of shops and restaurants of Old Town are just minutes away up the Parkway.

Getting Around:

There’s no better drive in the metropolitan area than the beautiful George Washington Parkway.  By design, there are no traffic lights, no billboards and no trucks or commercial traffic allowed. Any drive to or from work that includes a stretch on the Parkway makes the rest of the trip more bearable.  The area is well-served by bus routes as well, filtering to the Huntington Metro stop, as well as direct routes to the Pentagon.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 12 miles
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 40 miles
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 50 miles
