Description

This charming 3-level townhouse is quintessential Old Town with a twist. Its modern necessities and space have been touched by the ancient art of Feng shui to bring optimum peace, well being and positive energy into the home. From the curved flagstone entry walkway, the aqua blue/green door and bold pops of color completing the backyard space- all have purpose.Bought by the current owner in 2010, there are numerous improvements throughout. To mention a few: all windows are sound/break resistant and finished with custom plantation shutters. A wall of glass sliding doors lead to great outdoor space and allow you to see out, but one cannot see in. The sunbrella retractable awning extends 8 feet to maximize the level of shade for the sunny back garden. Exposed brick accents gives a rustic feel in the family/dining room as well as the kitchen which was completely redone over the last 8 years to include granite counters, modern cabinets, an extended peninsula for meal prep/serve, and a mirror with glass shelves over kitchen sink. There is a pantry built for food storage on lower level.~ The updated upper level full bath features vintage style tiles and includes the original cast iron bathtub. The whole house water softener means no more hard water.The main level of this fine residence offers living, family and dining spaces all freshly painted and highlight a neutral palette, complemented by classic crown molding, chair rail, wainscoting and wood floors throughout. The upper level has two bedrooms and the master features two closets. The lower level provides an abundance of storage with custom closets/pantry space as well as a deep crawl space to store out of season items.The GW Parkway beckons for you to take in the fresh air while enjoying the trails and bike paths. The popular Buzz Bakery is right around the corner so you can indulge your sweet tooth, and Rustico gastropub is across the street from Buzz to satisfy your hunger. Your only dilemma there will be which of the 400 beer choices to wash down your wood fire pizza. Vaso's Kitchen with authentic Greek comfort food is directly across the street from your new home. You will find parking on the access road directly in front of the home, incredibly convenient.The hub of Crystal City is less than 2 miles away and the Braddock Metro station, Harris Teeter and Trader Joe's are within 5 blocks of home.

Old Town

Welcome to historic Old Town, Alexandria. Founded in 1749, Old Town is a place rich with colonial charm. This is the heart of the City of Alexandria. Going back in time, one might have caught a glimpse of a middle-aged George Washington riding his horse up to Christ Church on the corner of Washington and Cameron Streets. Years later, Old Town became the childhood home of famed Confederate General Robert E. Lee. A slew of other notable names from both Virginia and American History add to Old Town’s lore.

Located on the western bank of the Potomac River, Old Town played an important role in the growth of our nation. It is no surprise that Old Town grew to prominence as a well-traveled port city under both British and U.S. rule. Like the rest of the communities in the City of Alexandria, the development of Old Town is tied closely to its proximity to the nation’s capital.

Since the colonial period, Old Town has established itself as a diverse cultural center and bastion of American trade, commerce, and industry.

Quality of Life:

Old Town brings you to the doorstep of colorful row houses on tree-lined streets dotted with gas lamps and cobblestone walks. Old Town is a desirable place to call home for those with an active social calendar. A wide variety of restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, as well as boutique and retail stores, leave plenty to the imagination and ample opportunity to enjoy the finer things in life. Walk down to the Potomac and enjoy the fireworks on the Fourth of July, or bundle up for the holiday tree lighting in December. An Old Town resident would be hard-pressed to run out of things to do.

Getting Around:

Old Town is located just south of D.C. and occupies the southernmost part of the City of Alexandria. Route 1 and the George Washington Parkway (Washington Street) run through Old Town, while Washington's Beltway, I-495 is seconds away. The King Street Metro and Braddock Road Metro Stations are easily accessible and there is a free trolley service that runs from the King Street Metro Station down to the waterfront. DASH bus services are also available. Reagan National Airport is right up the road.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 5 miles.
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 35 miles.
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 40 miles.
