The photos tell the story of this tastefully appointed, meticulously upgraded bottom-to-top townhouse in the prestigious Landmark Mews community in Alexandria, Virginia. This house offers its new owner an elegant, yet livable move-in ready home.

Landmark Mews is tree-lined, nicely landscaped enclave of Colonial townhouses located just inside the Beltway, with easy access to 395/495/95, a direct bus to the Pentagon, and close proximity to the Van Dorn Metro. Old Town Alexandria and Washington, DC are but a short drive away.

The upgrades and appointments to this house start at the front curb and curved brick walk, then on to the front door details, and continue inside from the wide 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 neutral paint colors that 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 installed, with low- to no-maintenance plantings, so that the new owner can focus on enjoying the landscaping, rather than upkeep. With the in-ground irrigation system and plant selection, the new owner will not have to worry about watering the grass or plants, but can instead accept compliments on how nice the front landscaping looks to friends, family, and neighbors.

The front entrance has a curved brick walkway, a wide stoop, a black metal storm door, and a cognac-finished solid wood front door that is nicely framed by formal molding details.

Once inside, the foyer is lit by a new brushed nickel five-light candelabra light above a slate-color tile floor, with a wide-stair step-up leading to the Living Room and Kitchen. The step-up area is lit by a new semi-flush mount fixture with matching design to the foyer candelabra. The powder room has been upgraded with a dresser-style vanity with glass basin, pendant lighting, and crown molding.

The kitchen has been completely redesigned and renovated to create a cook’s dream space, with Thermador, Viking, and Fisher & Paykel appliances, including a Thermador double convection oven, a Thermador refrigerator that is completed recessed into the wall, and a Viking 4-burner and griddle with custom hardwood covers for the burners. The kitchen also offers custom cabinets, with crown molding details and ample storage, including a custom spice cabinet, dark granite counters, with hints of gray, silver, and blue, a cognac-colored tiled backsplash to complement the colors in the granite and cabinets, and a neutral greige wall color with a subtle vine detail on the walls and ceiling. Lighting is provided by dimmable recessed lights, with task and accent lighting provided under the cabinets and behind the crown molding detail on the cabinets.

The kitchen area is large enough for a bistro table under a new three light brushed nickel fixture with a design to match the cabinetry and pulls. When entertaining, the kitchen can be separated from the remainder of the main living level by French doors and a pocket door. The kitchen has access to both the adjacent Living Room and Dining Room.

The focal point of the Living Room is a gas fireplace with a brick surround and hearth and white mantel details. The Living Room has recessed lights, with this lighting also located to wash walls, art, and the fireplace with light. The Dining Room is adjacent to the Living Room, with direct access from the Kitchen. These two rooms have a double window and sliding glass door, both with plantation shutters. The Dining Room also has two skylights, so these rooms are bathed in natural light. Both rooms have crown molding and hardwood oak floors with a warm patina showing through a satin sheen that looks like glass.

On the second level, the house offers two Master Bedroom suites, with wide plank espresso-color floors. You enter the Master Bedrooms through French doors, with each bedroom large enough to make a King-size bed look small. The second Master Bedroom provides a small alcove for a comfortable reading area with a window overlooking the front landscape to provide natural light. Lighting for both bedrooms is provided through numerous recessed fixtures. The landing on this level has the same espresso flooring to connect the Master suites, with a Venetian plaster finish on the wall and a recessed light fixture placed to highlight the finish and a favorite art piece the new owner may wish to place on this wall.

The first Master Bedroom has a dedicated dressing area with custom cabinets, mirror, and sconce lighting, with two glass tile medallions with a custom design inset into the floor.

Both Master Bedrooms offer large (7x11 & 7x7) custom designed walk in closets with the clothing rods, shoe racks, shelving, and lockable jewelry drawers all behind doors and a floor-to-ceiling mirror, which provides both functionality and a clean, elegant look and feel within this area. The attention to detail approach found throughout this house is also present in these closets, as both have crown molding and the wide-plank espresso floors.

The first Master Bathroom has been completely redesigned and renovated with upgraded tile on the floor, walls, and in the frameless glass shower, custom matching vanities and wash basins, anti-fog medicine cabinets with built-in outlets, crystal glass sconces and recessed ceiling fixtures for lighting, and an in-wall, Bluetooth music system with waterproof ceiling speakers.

The bathroom in the second Master Suite has also been completely redesigned and renovated, with glass tile on the walls, marble tile on the floor, and matching Kohler wall-mount vanity, sink, mirrored cabinet, and fixtures. Lighting is provided by matching Kohler sconces and recessed lighting. The linen closet in this bathroom has a custom adjustable shelf storage system.

The loft level offers enough space to be used as a bedroom, office, and a get-away space, or all three at once. This space has crown molding and new carpet. The full bathroom on this level has been completely redesigned and renovated as with the other bathrooms in the house, with floor-to-ceiling polished tile that has a silver tone, a glass shower ensure with a Pharo Exclusiv shower panel, a wall-mounted vanity with a gray top and a Kohler undermount sink, and wall-mounted storage cabinets above the sink.

This level also has a large walk-in closet and a separate storage space in the attic area. Wiring is already in place to install recessed lighting.

The Lower Level has a wood-burning fireplace, with room to watch a large screen TV. This space has tile flooring with a dark wood-grain finish, with lighting provided by recessed fixtures. Built-in bookcases flank a large built-in desk and counter area with a Silestone top to provide a ready-made office or work space. A custom designed, built-in bar with Silestone tops, cabinets below the bar and both below and above the counter behind the bar, and a prep sink make this lower level great entertaining space.

The Lower Level has access the garden patio area through Anderson French Doors with built-in blinds. The brick patio is comfortably sized for a large dining table or seating area, with space for a grill as well. Two planting beds with raised brick edging flank the rear gate. As with the plantings in the front of the house, the plants in the garden patio area have been chosen for their color as well as their low-to-no maintenance requirements. Each planting bed contains a large rock formation as a focal point, whether by day or at night through low-voltage lighting. As with the front, the plant selection and micro-sprinkler system will let the new owner show off the beautiful rear landscaping without exerting more effort than turning on the system.

The laundry room on the lower level has a frontload washer and dryer, a utility sink, overhead storage cabinets, and a counter installed above the appliances to make laundry chores easier.

The garage is a single-car, single door model, with a bullt-in GarageTek storage system and custom wall pegboard storage. This house is one of the few houses in the Landmark Mews community with a driveway that is long enough to park two cars (front-to-back).

The primary systems in the house have all been replaced. In addition to a whole-house humidifier system (replaced in 2010), the house has an air exchange system that brings filtered fresh air into house. The HVAC systems were replaced in December 2013. A new gas hot water heater was installed in April 2015. The roof and the windows were been replaced in 2003 and 2006, respectively.
