Vacation cancelled this year? You won't miss it once you see this house. The perfect "Staycation" home you never knew you needed....until March 2020. Am I right? Tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac, this Instagram-worthy 6 bedroom, 4.5 Bath brick -front home was built in 2004, but has been completely redesigned and meticulously maintained. Better-than-new construction with over $250K in recent improvements, you will be hard pressed to find a home like this just south of Old Town Alexandria. I'm.not.kidding. A thoughtful approach was taken to the design and finishes in every room with no detail overlooked. With over 5500 livable sq feet, you will have plenty of space for living and entertaining (and distance learning and working and and and...) Since the remarks don't have enough room to describe all of the awesomeness this house has to offer here are some of the highlights: A bold sitting room where you can bring your books and be your best sophisticated self in this glamorous setting with custom built-in shelving and a rich dark aesthetic. Next you will be falling for the floor to ceiling stone wall with gas fireplace and sunlight from expansive windows and soaring ceilings. The living space is the center of the home and the perfect spot to unwind with a book, check your email or watch what's trending on Hulu or Netflix. If you like to cook or just like to eat, you will love this newly renovated kitchen which features an elegant capiz shell backsplash, a stunning custom island with quartz countertops, seating for 6, rows of crisp white cabinets, and new stainless steel appliances including a gas Thermador range (yes, it was verrryyyy expensive) with a fancy pot filler, new wall oven and convection oven/microwave too. There is room for a breakfast table, but you might prefer to dine in style in the elegant coastal themed dining room featuring a coffered ceiling and glamorous lighting. No reservations or masks required! Tired of all those Zoom meetings? You won't be in the bright office space with more luxury lighting, french doors for privacy, built-ins and plenty of natural light. If you think main level is the Main Event, you haven't seen the basement. I shouldn't even use the word basement to describe the space because it the most non-basement-y basements you've ever seen. I mean...that new wet bar??? It's better than some people's kitchens! If you're missing hanging out for Girls night, Poker night, Game night, you can have all 3 going on at the same time right here. Forget those excuses for not working out. That quarantine 15 is as good as gone in the privacy of your own home workout room. Just get some boxing gloves, put your game face on and grab those skinny jeans because the're gonna fit by the Fall! Need extra space for guests? Cancel that air-bnb, because guests will feel like they are staying at a 5-star luxury hotel in this guest room with access to the private patio, a walk-in closet and newly renovated full bath just outside the door. If all of the entertaining is making you tired, good thing you have a sweet owners' suite with sitting area, gas fireplace, hers and hers walk-in closets, and a luxurious bath with double vanities, stall shower and a Jacuzzi tub. And if you think everything on the inside is fab, grab a glass of rose and some sunscreen because you'll be living your best life in your fenced back yard with a newly installed $100K slate patio with covered seating area, relaxing koi pond and private treed views. Country club cache without the dues? Yes, please! Imagine being in Vacation Mode All. year. long. What's missing here?? Is this house really too good to be true? Yes....It's better! It is also in a super-convenient location with just over a mile to the Metro and all of the major commuting routes are minutes away. If you are ready for your kids to go back to school, you don't have far to go. Zoned for Clermont elementary just around the corner. Want a Sho-stopper? It's waiting for you!
