Description

Over $125,000 in improvements and pool membership conveys (but you may never want to leave the peaceful back yard)! Kick off your shoes in the airy foyer of this pristine home before choosing a few steps up or down. Upstairs gleaming wood floors greet you immediately, drawing you into the open living room and elegant dining room, or straight into the sounds and smells at the heart of the home in the kitchen. Marble backsplash and corian counters galore, even a separate prep sink to delight any chef with an audience at the breakfast bar or kitchen table. You may want to eat out on the trex deck instead, overlooking a fenced yard that the owners have made into a lush level oasis. Back inside along the hallway, choose from two bedrooms with the privilege of a stylish full bath, and a master suite you will struggle to leave on a Saturday morning, with room darkening shades (and all cooled by ceiling fans). Lower level of the home has a fourth bedroom, and third full bath (even more stylish with wainscoting) plus storage rooms and spaces galore, access to the two car garage, and the favorite Rec Room where everyone can gather for game day, movie night, or reading a book by the fire. Riverside is the place to be. Highly sought after quiet community tucked conveniently near the scenic GW Parkway, with quick access to popular shopping, parks and recreation, schools, hospital and historic Mount Vernon Estate. Take a quick bike ride for a picnic lunch along the Potomac River for fun, or run the trails all the way to the Pentagon. Speaking of the Pentagon, the commute to there and DC by car is just 20 minutes, with Fort Belvoir even closer! Shorter commute means you get to your favorite summer beverage on the back deck sooner, or maybe even make it to the pool during the week to take advantage of Riverside Gardens Swim and Tennis Club.

Alexandria - Parkway/Ft. Hunt

The area takes its name from a post-Civil War era fort constructed near the banks of the Potomac River that was intended to compliment the defenses of Washington, DC with Ft. Washington on the opposite side of the river.  Ft. Hunt was even home to a top secret military intelligence operation during World War II.  While no shots were ever fired in anger, the remains of the facility are the centerpiece of the sprawling Ft. Hunt Park.  The George Washington Parkway is a beautiful ribbon of road that runs through the community towards George Washington’s Mt. Vernon to the south, offering incredible vistas of the Potomac River.  There are beautiful communities of primarily single family detached homes to the west of the Parkway, including Hollin Hills, a neighborhood of roughly 450 homes designed by Charles Goodman immediately after World War II.  It is considered a landmark of contemporary design.

Quality of Life:

Parks, scenic vistas of the Potomac River and the walking and biking trail that runs from Mt. Vernon to Rosslyn right through Ft. Hunt are the anchors for this beautiful community. While there a handful of townhomes, almost every dwelling is a detached home, ranging from 1950's construction to magnificent new homes overlooking the river. And the incredible variety of shops and restaurants of Old Town are just minutes away up the Parkway.

Getting Around:

There’s no better drive in the metropolitan area than the beautiful George Washington Parkway.  By design, there are no traffic lights, no billboards and no trucks or commercial traffic allowed. Any drive to or from work that includes a stretch on the Parkway makes the rest of the trip more bearable.  The area is well-served by bus routes as well, filtering to the Huntington Metro stop, as well as direct routes to the Pentagon.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 12 miles
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 40 miles
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 50 miles
