Property Description

Undeniably sophisticated. A complete overhaul of this classic and stately home has upgraded every detail - from floor to ceiling - to offer contemporary design, first-class amenities, premium appliances, one of a king finishes, and so much more This lovely home has only been occupied one time from 1964 to 2018! 518 Canterbury resides in a prime location in Alexandria. Located just off N. Quaker Lane, homeowners have easy access to restaurants and entertainment in Old Town. Expanding the dining and shopping options, it's just a quick drive from I-395 to DC. Closer to home, there are Bradlee Shopping and Farlington Shopping Centers just down the road. Perched atop the hill at the end of a secluded cul-de-sac, this home overlooks the neighborhood. Blue Flagstone steps lead to a classically constructed portico at the home s entrance. Inside, an exceptionally stylish yet sensible and spacious floor plan with crisp gray and fresh white finishes produce a bright and airy living space. An exposed beam, crown molding, and wainscoting create depth; hardwood floors and a gas fireplace add charm and warmth. The gourmet kitchen is loaded with lavish details. Gleaming Caesarstone White Attica quartz countertops contrast stainless steel Thermador appliances. Two islands - one with a waterfall edge and seating for three; the other housing a wine cooler and beverage fridge, provide the storage and counter space for both quick family meals and large gatherings. Subway tile backsplash and brushed nickel hardware add texture and dimension. French doors through the dining area lead to the veranda, extended by a Blue Flagstone patio and stone seat wall - ideal as fluid outdoor entertainment space. An enormous yard surrounds the back of the home. Attractive, professional landscaping lines the face of the brick exterior and paved driveway leading to the garage. A hallway leads to the powder room and continues to two upper level bedrooms, a full bath, and finally the generously sized master suite. A pocket door allows privacy, separating the suite from the walk-in closet and master bath with double sinks, a glass enclosed shower, and separate water closet. All bathrooms and the powder room feature marble flooring, modern lighting and espresso vanities. The lower level is nearly equal in square footage living space. Relax, entertain, and enjoy the second family room with a wood burning fireplace, a brick surround, and built-in shelving at the far end; a wet bar and mini fridge tucked into the wall on the other. Two additional bedrooms, one offering potential office space; the second an in-law suite with a sitting area closed off by French doors, leading to the bedroom and bath. The laundry area features new Maytag appliances. The utility room offers storage space and leads to the garage.
