Bella Casa Partners presents this 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bathroom townhouse located in the sought after Overlook community in Alexandria, Virginia.
The photos tell the story of this elegantly appointed and upgraded townhouse which will offer its new owner a truly move-in ready home.
Overlook is located just inside the Beltway, with immediate access to 395/495/95 and a bus to the Pentagon that you can catch with less than a 5-minute walk from the front door. The Van Dorn Metro is located less than a 10-minute drive. Dining, shopping, recreational, and cultural options found in Washington DC, Old Town Alexandria, Arlington, and Tysons are within easy reach. A wide range of the regular Life necessities are all within 10-15 minutes from Overlook.
When entering the community, you enjoy a drive up a winding, tree-lined avenue, which gives Overlook a feeling of calm apart from the rush of daily Life. Overlook surrounds Fairfax County's Bren Mar Park, with its mature trees and walking trails. These green space features are rarely found in a community located inside the Beltway. When living in Overlook, these features are yours to enjoy just outside the front door.
Overlook also offers its residents an outdoor pool and paygrounds.
Verizon is currently installing Fios internet for the community.
The upgrades and appointments to this house start at the front curb, then continue on from the dramatic view from the foyer to each room in the house. A focus on the details – both big and small – is apparent throughout this house, from the visual impact of the Benjamin Moore paint in neutral colors to create a flow from room to room, level to level in the house, to the brushed nickel hardware on every door in the house, including hinges, with levers replacing knobs for a more elegant look and feel.
Once inside the house, the foyer is lit by a showpiece brushed nickel lantern-style pendant light. The house opens to a living room with a bay window and a dining room, where an eight candle brushed nickel candelabra is the centerpiece. Both rooms have custom crown molding and wainscoting. Two columns on this level create a “door” leading into the open kitchen with seating areas for relaxing and entertaining.
The kitchen has a cook's layout that is ready for entertaining, with an island sink, ample prep room, stainless steel appliances, maple cabinets, tiled floor, granite counters, and a polished marble tile backsplash. The kitchen island continues this granite and marble tile combination, with architectural corbels added to the bar top for visual impact. The island bar is sized for eating or watching the cook at work, with room for three stools.
The kitchen opens to a fireplace with flanking built-in bookcases, with enough room for a sitting area or a table for informal dining. Another sitting area off the kitchen is sized for a sofa or sectional with five windows that overlook the fenced-in patio. The kitchen has access via steps to the fenced patio for al fresco dining or entertaining. A large common space behind the house and screening evergreens provide privacy when inside the house or on the patio.
The Master Bedroom suite is large enough to make a King-size bed look small. A separate seating area with five windows lets in morning light for a relaxing read of the paper or a weekend nap. The suite offers enough space for an office set-up if you prefer workspace to lounging space.
The Master Bathroom has been upgraded with granite vanity tops, Moen brushed nickel fixtures, framed mirrors, light fixtures, polished soaking tub and shower pan, and a frameless brushed nickel shower door.
The Master Bedroom has two walk-in closets, each with a custom built-in organizer system.
The 2nd bathroom upstairs has also been upgraded with a granite vanity top, Moen brushed nickel fixtures, framed mirror, light fixture, and a polished bathtub.
The laundry is located on the bedroom level, with a walk-in space that has overhead cabinets for storage.
The lower level has wood floors, with ample room to watch a large screen TV, set up a separate library or office area, and a separate sitting area in front of the second fireplace.
The lower level also has a renovated full bathroom, with new vanity, custom glass shower door, and tiled shower and floor.
The garage is a two-car, single door model, with a separate storage area that has a large elfa shelving system.
The HVAC system (Carrier) and hot water heater were upgraded in 2011.
