The hallmark neighborhood of Beverley Hills in Alexandria City, known for its enchanting homes, tree-lined streets, a sea of azaleas, and rolling hills, surrounds the corner lot of 801 Enderby Drive. Over one hundred trees on the ⅓ acre lot deliver a serene backdrop that will take your breath away. Enjoy yoga by the early morning golden light or during the sunset-kissed evenings on a completely secluded private lawn, thanks to the elevated parkland perched on the hill with 360-degree views. Mature Evergreens, professional landscaping, and a flagstone walkway welcome everyone into a bright setting. Two gracious levels, all above ground, provide ample natural light throughout and enhance the warmth of the rooms. Bygone era details combine seamlessly with modern delights: pristine hardwood floors, neutral fresh paint, arched doorways, crown molding, nostalgic built-in corner china cabinets, chair rail accents, and recessed lighting. The large living room is a wonderful space to entertain or relax and features a wood-burning fireplace with a mantel flanked by built-in shelves that will display collections. A perfect formal or casual dining area is conveniently located off the kitchen looking out to a private flagstone patio guarantees effortless oven-to-table meals and promises cozy family moments. Kitchens are the heart of every home and this sophisticated and recently renovated design flaunts freshly painted white cabinets, quartz countertops, ample storage, newer GE slate finish appliances (less than 2 years), glass subway tile backsplash, and a new sink faucet. A small hallway from the kitchen showcases a pantry and leads to a full bath and a great versatile room, that can be an office, sitting room, or ideal au-pair/in-law suite (5th bedroom), with a separate, private bistro patio. Connecting the living room and “sitting” room is a fantastic year-round sunroom that will become a main hangout and easily transitions gatherings inside to outside. The upper level boasts four bedrooms, a den (optional 5th bedroom) and two full baths. A dreamy primary suite flaunts a deep walk-in closet with a custom closet system, high cathedral ceilings, oversized windows, skylights, new plush carpeting, a quaint built-in bench (reading nook), and an updated ensuite bath with a dual sink vanity, new glass-walk-in shower, and calming soaking tub. An abutting room to the primary suite (the optional 5th bedroom) with French door access is another adaptable space perfect for use as an office or nursery with views of the verdant backyard. Three additional bedrooms share a charming white and black-themed bathroom. The “lower level” of this home is where you enter from the one-car garage and find the half bath and utility room. A staircase leads to the kitchen making it easy to bring groceries up directly from your car. Outdoor space is more important than ever these days and this home produces a gracious flat lot to play lawn games, shielded by noise and the street by 30 feet giant thujas, multiple stone patios for dining alfresco and staying warm by the fire pit; and cleverly designed fencing to keep four-legged friends and family safe. Driveway can park two cars. The local playground, “The Pit”, is popular along with the community’s many annual events. Residents can stroll to nearby Shirlington for dinner, enjoy happy hour at the many restaurants, or see a show at Signature Theater. The shops and restaurants of Del Ray, the Fairlington Shopping Center, and the Bradlee Centre are also an easy walk. Old Town, the Pentagon, and Crystal City (Amazon HQ2) are all just five minutes away by car. City workers will love the feel of living in a forest and yet minutes away from access to I-395 as well as Metro and bus services; dedicated shuttle to The Pentagon stations metro or bus. Many neighbors, who work in DC, use the Dash AT4 bus and enjoy a 30-minute door-to-door commute. Lots of love was put into this home to make it sparkle.
