The photos tell the story of this elegantly appointed, newly upgraded townhouse in the Cameron Station Community in Alexandria, Virginia. This house will offer its new owner a refined, yet livable move-in ready home.

The upgrades and appointments to this house start at the front curb, then to the front door details, and continue with the dramatic view from the foyer to each room in the house. A focus on the details – both big and small – is apparent throughout this house, from the visual impact of the new Benjamin Moore paint throughout the house in neutral greige colors to create a flow from room to room, level to level in the house, to the new brushed nickel hardware on every door in the house, including hinges, with levers replacing knobs for a more elegant look and feel.

The landscaping, both at the curb and the rear patio, has been professionally designed and newly upgraded, with low- to-no-maintenance plantings, so that the new owner can focus on enjoying the landscaping, rather than upkeep. The newly re-appointed stacked Colonial fieldstone wall at the front makes this house standout from the curb. This house backs to a common area with trees, rather than backing to another row of townhouses separated by a small common access area, so the view from the deck overlooks greenery, not the items on a long line of decks. The fenced-in back yard has an irregular shaped fieldstone patio with crushed bluestone joints, with two planting beds having a mix of Spring and Summer blooming plants. A fence gate allows access to the large common area behind the house.

The front door is newly painted with a new brass lockset, a Baldwin Brass S knocker, and kick plate. Once inside, the foyer is lit by a showpiece brushed nickel lantern-style pendant light. The house opens to a living room and a dining room, where a new eight candle brushed nickel candelabra is the centerpiece. Both rooms have heavy crown molding and wainscoting, which is shown off to great effect to by the paint selected for these rooms. The hardwood floors in these two rooms have been newly refinished, along with the floors in the 3rd floor hallway.

The kitchen has a cook's layout that is ready for entertaining, with an island cooktop, a sink that overlooks the trees through three windows, ample prep room, new Kitchenaid Architect Series stainless steel appliances (including double convention wall ovens), cherry cabinets, tiled floor, new granite counters, and a new polished marble tile backsplash. The island bar is sized for eating or watching the cook at work, with room for three stools. The kitchen opens to a space with enough room for a sitting area or a table for informal dining, whether to relax or entertain. The kitchen has access to the deck for al fresco dining or entertaining under a retractable awning. The two mature River Birches in the fenced back yard, with the mature Crepe Myrtle and Saucer Magnolia in the rear of the adjacent townhouses, provide a full “green screen” for three seasons of privacy.

The Master Bedroom is sized to comfortably fit a king-size bed, with crown molding, plantation shutters on the three windows and a separate walk-in closet.

The Master Bathroom has been newly upgraded with granite vanity tops, brushed nickel fixtures, framed mirrors, light fixtures, matching accessories, and a semi-frameless brushed nickel shower door. The Master Bathroom also has a soaking Jacuzzi tub.

The 2nd bathroom on the third floor also has new upgrades of a granite vanity top, chrome fixtures, framed mirror, light fixture, and matching accessories.

The third floor has two additional bedrooms that overlook the trees in the rear of the house and in the common area beyond. Each of these bedrooms have crown molding.

The fourth floor has the 4th bedroom, with a full bathroom, which has been newly upgraded with chrome fixtures, light, mirror, and matching accessories.

The downstairs has ample room to watch a large screen TV and to set up a sitting area in front of the fireplace and the built-in bookcases. The downstairs also has a tiled storage room, which is roughed-in for a full bath. This storage room has a custom-designed elfa storage system for the new owner to use.

The carpet throughout the house has been newly replaced. The interior of the house has been fully repainted, including the ceiling (as the “fifth wall”) in an off white color to enhance the crown molding and wall colors in each room. The rear exterior of the house has been fully repainted, along with the front entrance. The windows on the front of the house have been newly caulked, with concrete stain applied to the window sills renewed to return the sills to their original appearance.

The garage is a two-car, single door model, with a separate area that is large enough for storage shelving. One HVAC system has been upgraded in the last five years, with the hot water heater newly replaced.

Cameron Station is located just inside the Beltway, with easy access to 395/495/95. The Community offers a free shuttle to the Van Dorn Metro (every 10 minutes), which is just over a mile away. When entering the community, you enjoy a drive up a long tree-lined avenue. Cameron Station is flanked by two City of Alexandria Parks, Ben Brenman Park (59 acres) and Armistead Boothe Park (11 acres), each with mature trees, walking trails, playgrounds, and athletic fields & courts. Ben Brenman Park also offers a lake with aquatic and avian wildlife. These green space features are rarely found in a community located inside the Beltway.
