Seldom does such a charming residence of this quality become available for sale! This 1933 Dutch colonial custom built home is unique in the Belle Haven community. The excellent craftsmanship of the Tuscan stone masons makes it even more attractive. The plaster walls, original glass and brass door hardware, solid wood doors, parquet (main level) and hardwood floors (upper level) are just a few of the features that display the quality construction one seeks but seldom finds in a single-family residence at this price point. If you are a garden enthusiast, this is a perfect choice. No grass cutting here...slate pavers enclose the flower beds with a wonderful variety of year-round blooming plants (particularly the spring bulbs), bushes and trees, grape and berry wines and even a pomegranate tree! Enjoy the front yard pond, gardens galore and have breakfast on the side patio.
The first floor boasts of a living room with a wood burning fireplace, a separate dining room, a welcoming year-round sunroom and a fully equipped kitchen. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths; on the lower level, there is also a full bath, plenty of storage space, a laundry area and a room that the current owner used as an at-home office. The original oil heat was replaced by a new gas furnace and the oil drum was remediated by Fairfax County (certificate and all paperwork is available for the new owner)
Since purchase, these are some of the improvements this owner has made: all new windows (except sliding ones in sunroom), new steel and ornamental glass front door and new half glass back door, roof guards, copper over the sunroom roof (the remaining roof is principally slate and original) gutters and downspouts; numerous built-ins, cabinets, bookcases and woodwork; the CAC was replaced and a separate air conditioning unit was added in the basement; the laundry room remodeled; bathrooms were either remodeled or updated; waterproofing, various electrical upgrades, outdoor lighting, many fixtures, faucets, toilets and shower, washer dryer, refrigerator and dishwasher replaced; steel chimney liner, cover and shield installed and the hot water heater was updated to gas.
Ideally located close to major transportation (the Beltway, the George Washington Parkway, Reagan National Airport, the Huntington Metro and Amtrak) the home is located directly across from Belle Haven Country Club which boasts of scenic views and a gorgeous Club House. This residence is also very close to Old Town Alexandria, the Belle View Shopping Center, the GW Parkway bike trail, historic Mount Vernon and downtown DC
