Wonderful four bedroom, four and a half bath with extra space and amenities off Russell Road - see the convenience of location without sacrificing the charm and peace of living in Rosemont, Alexandria. A classic Colonial exterior, brick and symmetrical, with a perfectly proportioned front porch creates a powerful presence. Gorgeous two-story foyer with a stunning chandelier opens the floor plan for guests, welcoming them in. To the right is the formal dining room, with tall windows and chair rail, spacious enough for friends and family to eat together. Carry on through to the open kitchen with a breakfast area suitable for picturesque family meals, a bay window backdrop and centered light fixture shape the space beautifully. No lack of counter space to prepare meals here, it lines the kitchen along three walls with a peninsula breakfast bar. Stainless steel appliances match the silver hardware, bringing a fresh look to the wooden cabinets. Circle back to the foyer and enter the comfortable family room - high ceilings with windows stretching the same height elevates a cozy gathering space to a central hub of the home. With the gas brick fireplace and French doors opening to the backyard, this room makes for a perfect second entryway to invite family inside; it leads to the detached garage off King Street. The bright at-home office and second living room at the front of the home are down the hall, as well as a half bath convenient for guests. Recessed lighting in almost every room adds to the natural light the windows provide. Crown molding accentuates charm and elegance on the main and upper levels, hardwood floors throughout the main level, with carpeted bedrooms and tiled lower level. The elegant staircase from the foyer leads upstairs to the open hall. The primary suite was designed with privacy in mind, with several walk-in closets, a generous dressing area, and an attached bath with soaking tub, separate shower, double sinks, and a water closet, all accessible from within the bedroom. The two additional bedrooms upstairs reside at either end of the U-shaped hall, and each have personal bathrooms. The lower level is an entertainer's dream. The recreation room, an excellent shape and size for a pool or foosball table, contains a conveying, top of the line shuffleboard table, and is upgraded with a wet bar at the end of the room - two beverage chillers for soda or wine and a stand-alone ice maker are below the extensive counter, complete with a full size sink. Create your own movie theater! The second family area converts into the perfect media room, with a built-in 4K, 3D compatible projector, a movie screen lowered at the push of a button, and DVD, BlueRay, streaming, and speaker controls set into the wall. Seven speakers create a cinematic experience like no other. A bonus room and exercise room bookend the full bath downstairs to the left, while the laundry room with counter space and a spacious storage area line the right. At the W Braddock entrance, this home sits atop a hill, tiered by stone retaining walls. The King Street entrance is discreet, prominently featuring the two-car garage, with steps down the back to enter the home. Storage under the garage is spacious, and consolidates space in the backyard, allowing for a pleasant patio and play area for entertaining. Del Ray's main street, Mount Vernon Avenue, is five blocks away and Old Town is half a mile, a 10-minute walk to shops, dining, and more. Commuters can easily access the Blue or Yellow lines from King Street Metro Station, an 8-minute walk from this home. For further travel, Alexandria's Amtrak Train Station is the same distance. I-395 access is right down King Street.
