Please view the virtual tour of this extraordinary Southern bungalow, circa 1917. Nestled away from the street amid lush foliage you'll find an unexpected oasis in the heart of one of Alexandria's most coveted neighborhoods. Seated on a picturesque 27,000 square foot lot abounding in perennial plantings, shade trees and blooms, this timeless home offers five bedrooms (including a main level master), three full and one half bathrooms and an extremely gracious flow throughout. From the private driveway you'll pass through the porte-cochère to the peaceful front porch, featuring a swing to lounge and visit as well as a panoramic view of the lovely grounds. Once inside the welcoming foyer you'll feel it: warmth, charm and history, and absolutely nothing cookie cutter. Large spaces for entertaining, three fireplaces, generously sized windows, pocket privacy doors, extensive built-ins, heart-pine hardwoods, a wall of french doors and extensive exterior hardscaping are but a few of this home's attractions. A mudroom, main level laundry room and cozy office/study provide essential space for today's practical living and enjoying more time than ever at home. A wet bar and formal dining room will encourage the entertainer but a bright, sizable kitchen will likely be the spot that attracts the chefs as well as the socializers. The master bedroom, tucked back in a quiet corner, requires climbing no stairs and features a huge walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with a shower and separate soaking tub. On the opposing side of the home four additional large bedrooms share a quiet upper wing. If you don't need so many bedrooms, utilize the additional space for recreation or another home office, and catch a pretty view from every room. If you're seeking a rear yard with options, you've found it. With a gorgeous tiered patio and expansive lush yard, opportunity abounds. Whether you dream of designing your swimming pool with an accompanying pool house, building an additional studio or guest house, exercising-from-home on your sport or tennis court, or even expanding this already impressive layout, your wish list will finally come to life here. Both indoors and outdoors, at this one-of-a-kind property there's simply something special about every space.
