Utterly charming and beautifully maintained cottage in City of Alexandria’s West End, just 2.5 miles west of Old Town. This spacious Cape Cod has updates around every corner and the backyard of your dreams! This four-bedroom, three-bathroom home also features a gorgeous, remodeled kitchen, open and airy living and dining areas, and gleaming hardwood floors. The light-flooded main floor has custom-built entertainment shelving with wood storage, a wood-burning fireplace, and an open flow. New French doors in the dining room let in tons of light and invite you out to the jaw-dropping yard. The kitchen is straight out of a home decor magazine - stainless appliances, new tiled backsplash, shiplap (!), a hidden dishwasher, room for a breakfast table nook, and a counter area perfect for a coffee bar. There are two large bedrooms upstairs with updated, attached full bathrooms in each, a third on the main floor (currently used as an office and home gym, and right next to another updated full bathroom) and a fourth in the basement, perfect for a guest room or getting quiet work done. The primary bedroom has a huge walk-in closet with a big window that makes it feel more like a dressing room than storage! The home boasts a finished basement (new carpet and paint!) that can function as a family room or playroom, including a second fireplace, newly resurfaced with new mantle, surround and fireplace doors, making this space just as cozy as the main floor. Also showcasing large, multi-use space for laundry, workspace (current owners have a full wood shop!), and ample storage. And just wait until you see this backyard dream! The owners spared no expense in building an outdoor oasis with an expansive stone patio, a natural gas firepit with temperature flame sensor and built-in seating, and a significant French drain system to keep water flowing correctly in the yard. Brand-new privacy fence and ample room for a garden. If you can pull yourself away from this made-for-entertaining home, you’ll find plenty of groceries, shops & restaurants in easy distance, including Harris Teeter, Giant, and Aldi...Alexandria Commons & Shops at Foxchase...Port City Brewing, Rockland’s BBQ, Tempo (French) & more! Conveniently situated just a block away from Fort Williams Park creek and near to Whole Foods, Hoffman Town Center and all things Old Town. The 8Z bus on the street corner goes to either King Street or Pentagon. MetroAccess to 495 straight down Duke Street, and Quaker Lane and Seminary Road are just a couple turns away for access to 395.
