General description

  • Main home
Three-level townhouse in Alexandria, Virginia with a garage. The metro is half a mile away - if that's too far to walk, there is a bus stop right in front of the home. We're two metro stops from Old Town and a short ride from Washington, DC (via yellow/blue lines.) Open living room/dining room/kitchen/powder room with gas fireplace and oversized windows on the main level. You'll sleep upstairs in the master (guest) bedroom with King-sized memory foam bed, black-out curtains, and an ensuite bathroom complete with two sinks, shower, and a soaking tub.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 cats
The cats are four-year old siblings and love human interaction. They are technically domestic shorthairs but they adopted us when we lived in Mexico. They need to be fed/have clean water 2-3 times a day, combed daily, litter cleaned in the morning and evening, and all the pets and belly rubs you can give them. They like to play in between naps (there is a basket of toys in the living room, but they carry them around) and are allowed on the furniture, including the beds (bottom half of the beds - no pillow napping!)
There are four window plants that will need to be watered every other day or so. Mail needs to be checked every few days. Trash goes out to the curb once a week - which is about five feet from the garage.

Practical life

  • City
  • 150 - 500 m² (1590 - 5290 sq. ft.)
  • Less than 20 m² (210 sq. ft.)
  • Metro/tram station
  • Bus stop
  • Airport
  • Small shop / Minimarket
  • Doctor
  • Pharmacy
  • Hospital
  • Veterinarian
  • Internet
  • Television
  • Dishwasher
  • Washing machine
  • Ground floor
  • No disabled access
It's an ideal location for exploring DC or Old Town without having to drive. There are beautiful parks nearby and a walking trail in our townhouse community for outdoor space. There is a very small balcony off the kitchen but it's really just large enough for two people to sit with a drink.

Comfort and Luxury

  • 3 floors
  • 5 rooms of which 3 bedrooms
  • Terrace / Balcony
  • Car parking available
  • Air conditioning
  • Fitted kitchen
Hardwood on main level with carpet upstairs and in the lower level bonus room. One smart TV in the living room and a small smart TV in the bedroom.
Ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room as well as central heating and air conditioning.

Tourism and Leisure

  • City
  • Museum
  • Zoo
  • Cinema
  • Theater / Opera
The main draw is being able to walk to the metro and access DC and the surrounding area. Even closer is beautiful Old Town Alexandria (two metro stops north) to explore all the restaurants and shops, or just walk along the brick sidewalks. Only a few miles from Belle Haven park (need to drive) or Gravelly Point. There are lots of restaurants, shops, wineries/breweries, and museums/cultural sites nearby (over 20 Smithsonian museums in DC) as well as a large shopping mall (Pentagon City) and outlets nearby.
