Please enjoy this 3 bedroom, 3 full & 2 half bathroom, 2-car garage, 2716 finished sq.ft. townhouse located in the sought after Overlook community in Alexandria, Virginia.
The upgrades throughout the house present a rarely found opportunity – A beautifully upgraded, move-in ready home located inside the Beltway with immediate access to 395/495/95, but also within a tree-lined, green-space community surrounding a Fairfax County Park.
While residents live in this Park-like setting, Overlook is also perfectly positioned for residents to reap “livability” and house valuation benefits from the forthcoming Landmark Mall redevelopment and other planned projects along the Landmark-Van Dorn Corridor.
A full description of the house features and upgrades, the Overlook community, and the Landmark Mall redevelopment project is provided below.
PLEASE NOTE: The photos and video featurette are from the listing agent's 2018 sale of this house. The features and upgrades shown in the 2018 visuals are the same as present in the house today, including the Benjamin Moore colors throughout the house. Only the furnishings are different, with the 2018 photos/video showing furnishings from the listing agent's interior design collection.
The house will be in Active status to allow showings once the seller's boxing up process is completed.
- The upgrades and appointments to this house start at the front curb with the new Hinkley Trafalgar series exterior lights, 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 and lower cabinets, 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 Trex 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 Owner's Suite is large enough to make a King-size bed look small, with the spacious feeling emphasized by a vaulted ceiling. A separate seating area with five windows lets in morning light for a relaxing read of the paper or a weekend nap. The Owner's Suite offers enough space for an office set-up if you prefer workspace to lounging space. The 40 foot tall Evergreen trees in the common area behind the house provide green screen privacy year round to the Owner's Suite.
- The Owner's Suite 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 Owner's Suite has two walk-in closets, each with a custom built-in organizer system.
- The 2nd & 3rd bedrooms are both sized to accommodate a Queen bed, with a double door closet.
- 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 fully renovated full bathroom, with new vanity, custom glass shower door, and tiled shower and floor.
- All light fixtures in the house have been upgraded, including the recessed lighting, which are flush profile LED lights, with adjustable light levels along spectrum from warm white to daylight.
- The garage is a two-car, single door model, with a separate storage area that has a large elfa shelving system.
- The driveway offers space for two parking spaces. Visitor parking is available at either end of Cozy Glen, just steps from the house.
- The HVAC system (Carrier) and hot water heater were upgraded in 2011.
- The carpet in the house was newly installed in April 2021.
