$670,000 2817 JAMES DRIVE, ALEXANDRIA, VA 22303
OFFER DEADLINE MONDAY FEB. 1, 2021 - 2:00PM - Welcome home to your updated fairytale bungalow with several outdoor living spaces including multiple gardens complete with colorful perennial flowers and foliage year round! Private corner lot, backing to woods and nestled in a quiet enclave within walking / biking distance to Huntington Metro and the Beltway. Completely refreshed with new paint, decorative and recessed lighting, and refinished gleaming hardwood floors throughout. The welcoming teakwood front porch with two ceiling fans overlooks the lush front garden and is the perfect respite for your morning coffee. The open layout of the main living space and abundance of light make it the ideal space for family and friend gatherings. The updated kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and breakfast bar awaits your culinary adventures. The woodburning fireplace in the living/dining room and large picture window overlooking the side garden is wonderful for entertaining or a cozy movie night. Gracious bedrooms with ample closet space and two full updated baths make this house ready to move in and call home. A multipurpose room in the back of the home with ceramic tile floors, new washer/dryer, closet, and built-in desk can be used as an office, guest space / third bedroom, laundry room, or home gym. The rear family room overlooks the private rear yard with mature trees and has access to the recently refinished deck and patio. Take all of your meals on the sunny deck or use this oasis as a backdrop for your virtual work meetings. Two rear sheds provide additional storage space. The driveway parking for two cars and additional street parking for two cars directly in front of the house add to the home's list of conveniences. The roof, HVAC (including furnace and AC), and appliances are less than two years old, making maintenance of the major house systems a breeze. Details like crown moldings, built-ins, and chair rails make this home extra special. The friendly neighborhood is only a 5 min walk to Huntington Metro (Yellow Line, direct to Pentagon and DC), a 3 min walk to a grocery store, and 1 mile to the Hoffman Center with a movie theater and unique local eateries. Located less than 10 miles to the Pentagon, the National Guard Bureau, and Fort Belvoir as well as more retail in Kingstowne - the location doesn't get any better!
