A bright front stoop, flanked by flowered garden beds, provides a wonderful welcome to this three-level townhouse located in a friendly, quaint courtyard on the end of a non-through section of the historic, Fairlington Villages neighborhood. Original hardwood floors grace the main living level, flowing from the foyer through the spacious living and dining rooms to the walkout on the rear of the home. The kitchen is tastefully updated with light-wood, shaker cabinets that offer plenty of storage, soothing granite countertops, a subway-tile backsplash and stainless-steel appliances. Classic hardwoods continue up the stairs to the bedroom level. The primary bedroom, spacious enough for a king-size bed, exudes natural light from the south-facing windows and provides a spacious closet. A quaint, second bedroom offers a forest view on the back side of the home. Between the bedrooms and off the staircase is a magnificently, renovated bathroom with stunning finishes, including shower tiles from tub to ceiling. On the lower level, newer wood-laminate floors run from front to back and contribute to a cozy and warm, multipurpose area, perfect for recreation and an office. A bonus bedroom, connected to a second full bathroom with a beautiful vanity and full-size laundry machines, rounds out the bountiful, indoor amenities of the home. A balcony with surrounding trees allows for excellent entertaining, outdoor enjoyment, and relaxation. Amenities are plentiful in Fairlington with walkable pathways, several pools, sports courts, playgrounds, and two community centers. While this home is comfortably set in a corner of the neighborhood, it maintains all the convenience expected. Shirlington Village, the new Alexandria Gateway, and the Bradlee Center offer fantastic restaurants, shopping, and entertainment options. For commuters, Route 7 and I-395 are immediately adjacent for travel and a neighborhood Metrobus line connects quickly with the Pentagon rail station and other parts of the DC/NoVa area. Look no further. This is the one!
