This Del Ray farmhouse exudes timeless charm with soft touches of sophistication and refined details. Hear the pleasant birdsong while swaying to and fro on the front porch swing - hardly a sound of the city bustle within range. White columns and a stately red door lead to an inviting foyer. Inside, sun rays beam through the windows, filling the home with natural light - from top to bottom of its 9' ceilings and hardwood floors. Wide molding frames the windows, doorways and floors. The main level offers an open floor plan where the living spaces open on to one another. Just off the foyer is a welcoming living room that leads to the breakfast room and adjacent kitchen. The kitchen features a stainless steel gas range with a Rangemaster hood, glass front cabinetry, and granite countertops. Enter the dining room from either side of the kitchen. Exit the dining area to a generously sized and professionally designed outdoor entertainment and relaxation space. A powder room with a pocket door and pedestal sink complete the main level. Two bedrooms, the master suite and hallway full bath are on the upper level. All bedrooms have ceiling fans. Two bedrooms, including the master, feature walk-in closets; a cedar closet is also found in the basement. The master bath has a glass enclosed shower with five soothing shower heads and a built-in bench. The bright hall bath is spacious and includes a linen closet. The completely overhauled backyard was transformed into a spectacular space offering a little slice of peace and quiet and a fabulous entertaining area. The rear steps were rebuilt with high performance Trex composite decking. The new fieldstone patio is large enough to seat more than a dozen guests. Step down to smooth pea gravel and an intimate fire pit. A stone retaining wall and raised garden bed sit between the two tiers. Azaleas and hydrangeas bloom annually and the vista of neighboring trees, including a magnolia, crepe myrtle, and tulip tree, create a park-like setting. Soon, the garden will be bright with cosmos, zinnias and dahlias. A charming storage shed sits in one corner, atop the shaded grassy area. On the other side, a wooden and steel trellis, vegetable garden space and a discreet storage area are additional patio features. Experience the magic of Del Ray restaurants, shops and community events - all just a few streets away. Mosby St is an easy commute to The Pentagon and DC and a short trip to DCA.
