About the Property
Charming Apartment in Fabulous Location
The master bedroom has a queen size bedroom set including linens, a roomy closet, and dresser. The second bedroom has a twin bed (including linens), a desk and dresser. There is a pull out couch in the living room should you want to accommodate two more people/children.
Other amenities: cable TV and convenient parking in front of the property (as well as driveway parking available).
Although no car is needed as you are only three blocks to Braddock Metro and six blocks to King Street Metro, walk to shops, restaurants and all the sights - from historic to hip.
King Street - the main street of Historic Old Town Alexandria is lined with unique shops, galleries, and restaurants. Take the (free) hop-on, hop-off trolley up and down King Street down to the river. Old Town is on the Potomac River and provides access to riverboat tours to Mt.Vernon Estate (George Washington's home)
The apartment is also in walking distance to the hip community of Del Ray which has interesting coffee shops, restaurants, shops, and Saturday farmers market. The farmers market, butcher and cheese shops mean that you can make your own meals in the full kitchen, too.
Or you can walk down the block to GRAPE + BEAN, Alexandria’s neighborhood destination for those who love great wine, beer, coffee and offers a lunch dining menu. There is also two restaurants, Lena's Stone Fired Pizzeria & Dos Amigos Mexican in walking distance. If you are travelling with children, there is a wonderful park only about four blocks away. Want to get around on bike? You can rent a bicycle with capital bike share, just at the end of the street.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Tim & I (Dawn) purchased this house in April 2014. We have rented in the area since our wedding rehearsal dinner six years ago and just fell in love with the quaintness of Del Ray, the waterfront of historic Old Town, and the easy access to Washington, D.C. so we are thrilled to be homeowners here. Tim grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin and loves to offer his Midwestern hospitality. After college he was a tour guide here for international students so he knows a lot of what D.C. has to offer - so feel free to ask for places to visit and how to get there. Together, we opened a kids consignment boutique in Del Ray in 2010 and love being a part of this community. We live on the first floor of this two-unit home so are available for any of your needs.
Why the Owner Chose Potomac West, Alexandria, VA, USA:
We loved the convenient location, front porch, and the beautiful tree-lined street in a neighborhood filled with quaint bungalow style houses with front porches. As a one-car family, Tim bikes 1 mile to work at the US Trade & Patent Office (which has a small museum that is open to the public).
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Its a charming 1930's home complete with a glass front door, original moldings, door knobs, & old-school radiators. We are having a wood fence installed this spring to complete the charm.
