Property description

Fully furnished and walk-in ready! Just bring your clothes! All utilities included in short - long term rentals. WI-FI/Cable included but technical support is provided the cable company. Hardwood floors in the living and dining area. Large, carpeted bedrooms. The larger bedroom (11.5 x 15) has a walk-in closet and the second bedroom (10.5 x 12.5) has a reach-in closet. Larger room has a privacy lock......Updated kitchen cabinets, counter tops and appliances including a dishwasher; ceramic tile, recessed lighting with dimmers, under-cabinet lighting in the kitchen, and a 5 ft. Breakfast bar which seats 2.....Marble topped vanity in bathroom..... Secure (locked) laundry area on lower level of the building......3rd floor Balcony with stunning view of the city of Alexandria........... Excellent Location! The property is approximately 10 miles from Downtown DC via car, located literally 1 block to the DC Metro Rail, which is the most convenient way to travel within the city unless you love traffic!! (Huntington Metro station- 1 walking block; Eisenhower or King Street Metro stations, 5-7 minutes drive. Within 20 minutes drive to all major DC attractions. 10 minutes to shopping centers (Kingstowne, BelleView, Hybla Valley, and more) and malls (Landmark, Springfield). 5 miles from the waterfront in Old Town Alexandria and the new National Harbor. Seasonal water park/batting cages/wave pool is close-by (Cameron Run Regional Park- less than 5 miles), a community pool (Old Town Pool - 1609 Cameron St.; Open 12:00 PM -7:00 PM), bike rentals (Old Town Alexandria) and lots of biking/hiking trails. Minutes from restaurants, shopping, banking, movie theaters, bowling alleys, parks, biking and walking trails... and many more activities. Six month or more rental includes access to tennis courts, outdoor pools, grilling area (seasonal) and an onsite workout room complete with treadmill, elliptical, weights and color TV.

Yes, it is a safe area. I lived there for 5 years as a single female and never had any problems. The unit is on the 3rd floor and the doors are solid steel (per the fire code) with 2 locks and a deadbolt for added security. The community buildings are older but the population consist of mostly single/ young married professionals. I have not seen a plethora of children running about but it is a quiet and peaceful place to live and vacation. Summer Rentals less than 6 months will not have access to the pool area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

Why the Owner Chose Groveton, Groveton, VA, USA:
A friend and I bought this property when we first moved to the DC area. We fell in love with Alexandria and wanted to live close by but not on top of all the hustle of the city. It proved to be a great place when we were both commuting into DC during the week and the surrounding areas provided delightful exploration for our exciting weekend adventures. But, after 5 years, as our life commitments changed, so did our careers and we had to leave our beloved Alexandria behind! But, we have kept the condo to share with friends and families who visit for various reasons all year long. Welcome and enjoy!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When you visit DC, you will find that you have the best of both worlds, convenience and privacy in one unit. From the 3rd floor you can glimpse the city, removed but from a birds eye view. At night, you sit on the balcony and the serenity and evening quietness immerses you in tranquility. You can leave your car parked and explore as much or as little of the surrounding area via Metro or bus. Huntington Metro is the 1st stop on the yellow line so you rarely have to stand! Movies, live theater, major shopping, restaurants, Old Town, L'enfant Plaza, the Smithsonian's, all accessible within minutes! If you care to drive, the condo is situated just outside the I-495 and near I-95 Beltway near Kingstowne, Arlington, and Annandale within driving distance to the National Harbor and Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Richmond Highway is 1.5 miles away and offers Wal-Mart, Target, Lowe's, etc and most of the things that make life enjoyable.
