Description

It starts with curb appeal, but there is so much to love in this home. Front porch was added in 2014 so that everyone could gather around a full size dining table and have stories carried with the breeze of a summer evening. Stepping indoors, you'll want to kick off your shoes as the living room and all the gleaming wood floors draw you into the heart of the home (more smartly open now that walls are gone). Everyone can enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds simmering in the kitchen with cabinets the color of french vanilla and granite counters to complement. Grab a quick snack at the breakfast bar, or have a sit down in the dining area. Although previous owner enjoyed the keys of a baby grand piano in that space instead. You may most often find everyone gathered around the new gas fireplace in the giant family room addition - with so much sunlight streaming through the plantation shutters, you may want to keep the remote for that fireplace handy and look up from your reading to turn down the heat. Up just a few stairs from the main level, choose from three spacious bedrooms and a stylish new bath that is further brightened by a skylight. If you go down a few stairs instead, the lower level could offer a great Rec Room, but has been enjoyed as an even cooler bedroom option that walks right up to the fenced back yard or across the hall to another lovely tiled bath. And let's just talk about the laundry room and pantry over-flow (to take advantage of nearby Costco maybe). Isn't laundry just less of a chore when you have shelves for everything and even a counter for folding? You are getting the quality construction and thoughtfulness of a mature home with all the beauty and peace of mind of a newer one with so many upgrades 2014-2018. All in the highly sought after quiet community (best buy in actual Waynewood), tucked conveniently right off the scenic GW Parkway on this prime corner lot, with quick access to popular shopping, parks and recreation, and historic Mount Vernon Estate. Take a quick bike ride for a picnic lunch along the Potomac River for fun, or run the trails all the way to the Pentagon. Speaking of the Pentagon, the commute to there and DC by car is just 20 minutes, with Fort Belvoir even closer! Shorter commute means you get to your favorite summer beverage on the back deck sooner, and you can even sleep in longer in the morning when you only have to walk around the corner to school.

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
