Description

This Del Ray farmhouse exudes timeless charm with soft touches of sophistication and refined details. Hear the pleasant birdsong while swaying to and fro on the front porch swing - hardly a sound of the city bustle within range. White columns and a stately red door lead to an inviting foyer. Inside, sun rays beam through the windows, filling the home with natural light - from top to bottom of its 9' ceilings and hardwood floors. Wide molding frames the windows, doorways and floors. The main level offers an open floor plan where the living spaces open on to one another. Just off the foyer is a welcoming living room that leads to the breakfast room and adjacent kitchen. The kitchen features a stainless steel gas range with a Rangemaster hood, glass front cabinetry, and granite countertops. Enter the dining room from either side of the kitchen. Exit the dining area to a generously sized and professionally designed outdoor entertainment and relaxation space. A powder room with a pocket door and pedestal sink complete the main level. Two bedrooms, the master suite and hallway full bath are on the upper level. All bedrooms have ceiling fans. Two bedrooms, including the master, feature walk-in closets; a cedar closet is also found in the basement. The master bath has a glass enclosed shower with five soothing shower heads and a built-in bench. The bright hall bath is spacious and includes a linen closet. The completely overhauled backyard was transformed into a spectacular space offering a little slice of peace and quiet and a fabulous entertaining area. The rear steps were rebuilt with high performance Trex composite decking. The new fieldstone patio is large enough to seat more than a dozen guests. Step down to smooth pea gravel and an intimate fire pit. A stone retaining wall and raised garden bed sit between the two tiers. Azaleas and hydrangeas bloom annually and the vista of neighboring trees, including a magnolia, crepe myrtle, and tulip tree, create a park-like setting. Soon, the garden will be bright with cosmos, zinnias and dahlias. A charming storage shed sits in one corner, atop the shaded grassy area. On the other side, a wooden and steel trellis, vegetable garden space and a discreet storage area are additional patio features. Experience the magic of Del Ray restaurants, shops and community events - all just a few streets away. Mosby St is an easy commute to The Pentagon and DC and a short trip to DCA.

Del Ray

Del Ray is located in the area northwest of Old Town, Alexandria. A community of communities, Del Ray includes Warwick Village, Saint Elmo, Hume and Mt. Ida. Like North Ridge to the west, the history of Del Ray is rooted in a rural past. Founded in 1894 as a planned community, Del Ray quickly became a bustling streetcar community. While the electric rail lines that brought on the boom have vanished, Del Ray has remained a focal point of the City of Alexandria and the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area.

Quality of Life:

Del Ray is known for its attractive, early 20th century architecture, which gives character to its navigable, gridiron plan. The community's atmosphere lends itself to a genuinely comfortable and homey living experience. Del Ray is a pedestrian's paradise and there is plenty to do for those seeking an active lifestyle. Four Mile Run Park, which connects to the Washington & Old Dominion Trail, is located nearby and is an ideal outlet for bikers and runners. Del Ray also offers an eclectic mix of boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops.

Del Ray boasts an active community calendar, which enriches the lives of residents and visitors alike. Each year, on the first Saturday in October, the community turns out for Art on the Avenue, an outdoor street festival featuring hundreds of artists, live music and delicious food. Other annual traditions include the Thanksgiving Day, 5 mile "Turkey Trot" Race, a Halloween Parade and the Holiday Tree Lighting. The Del Ray Farmer's Market, which runs year round does not disappoint. It features a great selection of local, seasonal produce as well as a few surprises like cheese, baked goods, and tea stands. 

Getting Around:

Del Ray is the kind of place where one can escape the Washington grind without having to sacrifice a connection to metropolitan urbanity. The Braddock Road Metro is easily accessible for commuters. From west to east, major arteries include Braddock Road, Russell Road, Mt. Vernon Avenue and Route 1. I-395 will bring you directly into Washington, D.C. Reagan National Airport is essentially at your doorstep.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 2 miles.
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 30 miles.
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 40 miles.
