Property Description

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Due to the level of interest in their property, the owners have decided on an offer deadline of Monday 4/3/23 at 6 PM. Please submit your offers by that time. Thank you! Nestled on a quiet 12 house cul-de-sac (in the shape of a “tuning fork”) in the heart of the “Stratford on the Potomac” neighborhood, is this well maintained 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2 car garage, split foyer home. Only .3 mile and a 5 minute walk is the George Washington Parkway, Riverside Park and the GW bike path. The home is also just .3 of a mile to Vernon View Drive, which leads directly to the other major thoroughfare in 22308 – Fort Hunt Road. Thus, enjoy quick access to Old Town Alexandria and Washington DC to the north, and the Mount Vernon Estate and Fort Belvoir to the south. The Potomac River is just to the east and the Richmond Hwy corridor is less than 10 minutes away. The tax record is mis-leading. It shows “Abv Grd Fin SQFT: 1,500.” The actual finished interior living space is 2,122 Above Grade Finished Square Feet. Add the 2 car garage and the total finished Square Feet is 2,537! From the street, a concrete driveway with space for 4 vehicles leads to a spacious (21’ x 20’) 2 car garage. Two doors from the garage give quick access to the interior of the home, one door leads to the utility/laundry room, the other opens into the first floor hallway with recessed lighting. The first floor has three spacious bedrooms. Two overlook the backyard. The master bedroom with two closets (with mirrors) is in the front corner with a nicely renovated bathroom featuring a glass and tile shower stall. There is a second full bathroom in the hallway. The downstairs flooring is all newly refinished parquet. Six refinished stairs lead from the first floor to the front entry. The wide, double front door opens to a colorful slate entry floor. Six more refinished steps lead up to the second floor. A half wall opens to a large front living room with a side wall of floor to ceiling book shelving framing a window. The second floor is all newly refinished hardwood floors (except for carpeted den, kitchen flooring and tiled bathroom). The living room opens to the dining room which has a sliding door to the expansive back deck. The center kitchen is also easily accessible at the top of the stairs. The kitchen has three access points from the hallway at the top of the stairs, from the dining area, and from the carpeted den. The kitchen also has door access to the large back deck. The bright, white kitchen features a beautiful 4’ x 3’ island with a granite counter-top with space for additional storage and in-kitchen dining. The kitchen contains black and stainless appliances and a new Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer. From the kitchen there is also access to the large, carpeted den with wood burning fireplace. The den is bright and airy and opens to the back deck via another sliding glass door. The back deck runs nearly the entire length of the back of the house with stairs leading down to the backyard. The easy-to-maintain composite deck is offers 460 sq. ft. of space - perfect for outdoor relaxing and entertaining. The center hallway on the second floor has a coat closet and two linen closets. To the front of the second floor is a full bath and in the front corner is the 4th bedroom. The corner bedroom/office features a mirrored sliding door to the closet as well as direct access to the hall bath. In the ceiling of this room is attic access with drop-down stairs. The house has been well maintained over the years. The HVAC system has been serviced twice annually since installation. A list of improvements completed over the last decade can be found in the kitchen when touring the home. This property is on what was once the “River Farm” section of George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate. Don’t miss it!
