Property Description

This charming Cape Cod home, nestled between W Braddock Rd and King Street, creates the perfect environment for Alexandria homebuyers. With one entry-level bedroom and two upstairs, a cozy living space on the main floor, the ultimate lush backyard, fenced in for seclusion, and plenty of storage space, this property is great for those looking for their first home, or those simply looking to be in the heart of it all. Close to public transportation, schools, and a variety of shopping and dining options, you'll feel instantly at ease at 2303 Scroggins Road. Professionally landscaped, Scroggins has lovely curb appeal with numerous native trees and shrubs. Enter through the eye-catching red door and you're greeted into the living room, with access to the dining room and hallway leading to the office, full bath and master. The formal dining room is lined with chair railing. The kitchen, with some stainless steel appliances, features a warm, comfortable backsplash of reds and browns. Walk out the back door and the raised wooden deck presents the opportunity to host an array of activities, from evening cookouts to birthday parties. Off the living room to the left is the tucked away master bedroom, with a sitting area that could be the perfect at-home office. Adjacent is the upgraded full bath on this level, with a tub shower. Upstairs are the remaining two bedrooms, and a second full bath. In addition to the hall linen closet, there is an extra large hall closet for additional storage, whether for suitcases, holiday decorations, or as a creative play space! A new Carrier Comfort Series Air Conditioning System was installed this year, including an air handler and compressor in the attic. Downstairs is a spacious recreation room with gorgeous slate floor and walkout access to the yard - easy to clean after a rainy afternoon outside. The considerably sized storage room houses the washer and dryer, with plenty of extra space for overflow from the upstairs closet. There is meticulous landscaping outside, lots of time and care have been invested into the yard. Arborvitaes line the right side of the driveway, while new flower beds frame the slate walkway to the front door. The backyard is fully fenced, making it a lovely retreat for you and your pets, with a conveying playhouse and storage shed in the corner of the yard, to store outdoor activities and tools. A 5 minute drive for grocery shopping at Safeway, picking up carry-out, or a quick morning Starbucks run in Bradlee or Fairlington Shopping Centre. Enhance the landscaping with your own personal touches at Greenstreet Gardens, also a 5 minute drive down the street. Within walking distance to T.C. Williams High School and a 6 minute drive to MacArthur Elementary. Walk 15 minutes to Forest Park for an afternoon outside or hop in the car for a quick ride down to the Old Town waterfront to picnic. A DASH bus stop is right around the corner, ready to take you to the Braddock Road Metro Station, for an easy commute into D.C.
