Welcome to this exquisite 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath corner lot gem. Boasting over 2,000 square feet of lovingly maintained living space, this single-family home combines quaint cottage allure with the comfort of modern living.

Inside, you're greeted by gorgeous hardwood floors that flow seamlessly throughout the home, setting up a warm and inviting atmosphere. The heart of the home is undoubtedly the updated kitchen - Remodeled in 2018/2019, it features top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, 42-inch white shaker style cabinets, recessed lighting plus two contemporary light fixtures, and a built-in corner breakfast nook with custom curved bench.

Entertaining is a delight in the sun-filled dining room, accentuated by three elegant French doors that open out to the deck. From here, steps lead down to a serene, enclosed brick patio-your secluded haven for morning coffees and evening unwinding under the gorgeous Magnolia tree.

The main level also features a convenient guest bedroom with a skylight, built-in bookshelves and an attached full bath, providing comfort and privacy for your visitors. Additionally, a separate study/den addition offers a versatile space for a home office or cozy family room.

Upstairs, two generous bedrooms await, including one with exquisite built-in shelving that adds both character and practical storage solutions. The masterful use of space and thoughtful details throughout this home truly make it a standout.

Easy parking in the one-car garage with inside access or the multiple-car paved driveway. Extra street parking on both sides for guests. Situated on a fantastic corner lot, this property enjoys the benefits of its prime location - located right off W Braddock Road, a main thoroughfare for Alexandria. Quick access to Del Ray, Old Town, Arlington, DC, and I-395 for shopping, entertaining, dining, and more! Bus stops along Braddock Rd and en route to two Metro stations make for a very easy commute. 3 blocks to George Mason Elementary School and Park and even closer to St. Stephens and St. Agnes Lower School and Park. Just a quick drive to George Washington Middle School. Seize the opportunity to own this extraordinary home before it's gone!
