Description

This premium property lies about 9 miles from DC, 8 miles to Crystal City and lies just off the GW Parkway for easy access to either. The half acre lot is wooded and lies in the Tauxemont Community which consists of 100 homes, most a on a half acre or larger. The community was established in 1940 and lies in a mature wooded stand of tall trees. Sidewalks and streetlights are banned which gives the community the feel of a rural village set in a forest which encourages the residents to do a lot of walking. There is a shopping center within a 10 minute walk and in the opposite direction, there is the GW Parkway bike trail which connects to bike trails throughout the DC area. One can even bike to Dulles airport from the front door. The community has its own water system which produces soft water and adds no chemicals to the water. It is fresh, chemical free water delivered to each house via the community water system. The annual payment of $500 includes the unmetered water and the fees to maintain the community.The current owner has completed many upgrades. The master bath is honey onyx, has a heated floor, glass shower with an integral steam shower, Brondell toilet seat bidet and all Grohe plumbing. The ceiling has a patterned PVC which will never need painting, and dentil crown molding. The master bedroom has a sun-room with electric shades and a beautiful two panel custom quarry tile floor. Most of the hardwood floors have been recently refinished and much of the interior has been freshly painted. A Nest thermostat was recently installed. Many of the lights in the house are controlled by motion sensors. The living room has a large skylight and has a faux tin ceiling. The wood burning fireplace is original to the living room and is an ingenious design with integral air chambers which greatly enhance the heating efficiency. The kitchen has solid maple fronts, kitchen-aid gas cook-top and dish washer. The refrigerator is a Samsung 3 compartment refrigerator. The ceiling is a genuine tin ceiling from W. F. Norman Company which has been making them since 1898. Off the kitchen is a 16 x 24 deck with a hard top (metal) which is perfect for a quiet breakfast or entertaining friends or family. The deck rests on concrete piers and was designed to be able to support a two story addition should one be needed.The property has two single bay garages--one at the north end and one at the south end. Both have garage door openers. The south garage has the feature to enable the owner to park the car and walk into the house with no steps. This is a unique property.

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
