The 1940's experienced a building boom in Alexandria, expanding the perimeters of Old Town and embracing the railroad communities of old. Charming rowhouses sprang up including those located on the 500 block of North West Street. Each enjoyed both front and rear gardens allowing the camaraderie of neighbors to grow and today adds easy Metro access and multiple shopping and dining experiences to its delights. 515 N West Street is a brick end rowhouse with welcoming porch supported by columns. A perimeter bed lines the walkway to the front door while landscaping stones and plantings define the northern boundary of the property. The nicely renovated and freshly painted interior reflects a blend of the earlier days with the conveniences and upgrades of today. Warm wood floors traverse the main and upper levels except in the renovated kitchen and the sunroom addition where rich red tiles lie underfoot. A formal living room opens to an arched entry into the dining room that is mirrored by the same entry treatment to the sunroom overlooking the large rear patio. A half wall in the dining room reveals the nicely renovated kitchen with granite counters, cherry cabinets and stainless appliances. The upper level is presently configured as two large bedrooms but was originally offered as three. The wall could be replaced should you desire a third bedroom or study on this upper floor. A beautifully renovated bath completes this elevation. The lower level has been completely redone to create a "flex" space with tile flooring and full bath. With an egress window, the room can be an additional bedroom or wonderful space for relaxation as a recreation/family room. A cedar closet and stacked laundry facilities are located here as well. More improvements include new fixtures, hardware, refinished wood floors, thermopane windows, a 2- year young central air conditioning system, a brand new furnace, four ceiling fans and extensive renovations to the kitchen and baths. Walk down the street to Braddock Metro for easy transportation, to Lena's Wood Fire Grill for a quick meal, several blocks to Trader Joe's or Harris Teeter for delectable grocery shopping or in another direction for sumptuous restaurants and the fun of King Street. Now, how could it be more perfect? Come in and know you are home.
