$785,000 1001 BASHFORD LANE, ALEXANDRIA, VA 22314
Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac in Northeast Alexandria, this three bedroom, two bath townhouse on Bashford Lane offers homeowners a wonderfully updated and charming place to call home. Walking through the front door, guests are greeted by the bright, open living space on the main level. As an end unit, the surplus of windows allows sunlight to pour into the room. The eat-in kitchen, open to the living room and completely renovated in 2017, offers upgraded countertops, pristine white subway tile backsplash, and a large island with a wine fridge tucked neatly away. The stainless steel appliances complete the contemporary style, while wooden floating shelves offer a pop of rusticity to the kitchen. Counter space is abundant, with several sections to create a designated coffee or tea corner, without taking away from the larger areas to prepare meals. The glass back door leads to the wooden deck and down into the backyard, professionally designed, just last year, along with extensive landscaping and hardscaping. Upstairs reside the three bedrooms and first full bath. The bathroom has a gorgeous skylight, new this year, that provides natural brightness as you prepare for your day. Both the upper and main levels have beautiful hardwood flooring. Downstairs you'll find a cozy recreation room, great for family movie nights or creating the perfect game room. There is another full bathroom with a large stall shower - ideal for guests while entertaining downstairs. Located at the end of it's row, this home has a coveted side yard, perfect for a shady garden. The fully fenced backyard was made to host warm summer evening dinners, with a beautiful wooden deck, a meticulous pea gravel patio, and a transformer for LED café lights to continue the party after the sun sets. On Bashford Lane, you are within walking distance to the best of Alexandria! .5 miles, barely a 10 minute walk, to the Potomac Greens restaurants and shops, which include Rustico and Tropical Smoothie. The picturesque Potomac waterfront, with the Mount Vernon bike path, is 10 minutes as well. For all your favorite dining and shopping options, a 20 minute walk will take you either into the heart of Old Town or to the popular Avenue in Del Ray. The Potomac Yards shopping center is just a short drive, 5 minutes down the road, housing Target, Old Navy, and Barnes & Noble and more. For your DC travels, whether for business or pleasure, this home is just a 12 minute walk to Braddock Metro Station.
