Location

Car: Not Necessary

Our Guest Cottage sits right between two very desirable parts of the historic City of Alexandria. Within a 15 to 20 minute walk, one can enjoy numerous, excellent restaurants, shops, antique stores, grocery stores, pharmacies, cleaners and two Metro stops. Movie theaters, malls, public tennis courts and community recreation center are all within a 10 minute drive.

From the Braddock Road Metro and the King Street Metro, you can be in Washington, DC, Arlington, VA or Maryland in just minutes. The Metro also takes you directly to Reagan National Airport.

The home sits on a quiet one-way residential street that has tons of free parking if you do have an automobile. There are two bedrooms and one bath. Built in 1926, the home's bath is fairly original with a deep, cast iron tub with a shower ring. Because of its depth, it can be somewhat of a challenge to anyone with mobility restrictions. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, stove, toaster oven, blender and microwave. There is no dishwasher however. Additionally, there is a gas grill for warm weather grilling. The washer and dryer are housed in the basement.

The house has a TV and has internet access as well. Enjoy all the historic sights of Alexandria, George Washington's Estate of Mt. Vernon, Woodlawn, Gunston Manor, Arlington Cemetery and the endless choices of free museums in Washington, DC.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: My husband and I are native Alexandrians and have owned this home for many years. We purchased it so my mother could move from her 3 story townhouse to one level living. She enjoyed many years there before moving in with my sister. Recently we decided it was the perfect spot for vacationers as it is in a wonderful, quiet community; yet is within walking distance of everything. I actually grew up in the neighborhood, attended the local elementary school and now our grandson is attending the same school. We live just a short 5 minute drive from the house and can make ourselves available if there is a problem.

Why the Owner Chose Alexandria:
I know how many people visit the Washington DC area each year, and I wanted to provide a more home-like setting for people who don't like the bustle of hotels. Old Town Alexandria and Del Ray are right on the doorstep of this cute bungalow, and with DC just a short distance away, I thought it was the perfect pied a terre!

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
This is a single family detached home so you don't have go worry about your noise level of coming or going as there is no unit above, below or beside you. You have your own washer and dryer and yard to use for outdoor grilling and dining. There is plenty of room to stretch out in this little home, and the privacy it affords, allows visitors to really 'live' in the DC area. Walking to shops and restaurants, theater, boating, metro and the like are just the icing on the cake.
