A truly extraordinary home has just hit the market in prestigious Mount Vernon on the Potomac in Alexandria, Virginia. An exclusive enclave of 114 homes along the Potomac River just minutes from George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate and Fort Belvoir Army Base. This neighborhood features a private marina with extraordinary views of the Potomac river, tennis courts and the ability to dock your own boat, for an additional fee. This is one of those homes that does not come around that often, as it is a gem from top to bottom, with a delightful floor plan full of unique surprises and cared for by meticulous home owners with an incredible attention to high end details that provide a truly comfortable and luxurious lifestyle.

All hardwood floors have been replaced in the home (not just refinished) and are in spectacular condition. The home has incredibly efficient Marvin brand aluminum clad windows and french doors, oak front door with Baldwin lock and hardware. Skylights throughout the house have all been replaced as well. There is two zone heating, both gas and electric heat pump, on regular service contracts, two sump pumps, electro-static filter, whole house humidifier, brand new Nest smart thermostats.

The foyer entry is grand and elegant, with ceramic tile flooring, soaring two story foyer with open staircase, two hall closets and a gracious greeting area for guests. The right features an grand dining room with dental molding, chair rail and charming colonial decor (chandelier does not convey, sellers to give $500 to replace).

The elegant living room has great flow to family room, soaring windows with great light, and dental molding as well.

This magnificent home features 3 fireplaces, 2 wood burning, one gas, a master bedroom with loft and skylight, renovated master bath with separate tub, shower and dual vanities, walk in closets and a loft! 5 bedrooms upstairs as well, one with it’s own private entry from the garage staircase, perfect for an in-law suite or any extended stay guest.
