Since home and lifestyle are so interconnected, it is hard to choose which to start with: the nicely renovated condominium unit or its incredible location in the historic Old Towne Alexandria. One of only three of the larger models in the highly sought after Harbor Terrace Condominium complex, this rare 2-level home offers two unusually large bedrooms with a full bath for each. Connected by a contemporary spiral staircase with private entryways on each level, this multi-level floorplan is arguably the most functional you will find anywhere in Alexandria as it affords a great deal of privacy upstairs and down, and it would serve anyone with a roommate or a work from home situation extremely well. The upper floor has hardwood in the sunny living and dining areas; a kitchen that boasts stainless steel appliances, beautiful tile floors and granite countertops. The upstairs bedroom has gorgeous hardwood floors, two closets and a renovated full bath with a quartz countertop immediately across the hall. The downstairs is a separate oasis with its own living area, large bedroom and renovated full bath. The unit underwent an extensive renovation in 2019 that included a new electrical system, plumbing and recessed lighting throughout both levels. What makes it awesome is the location. Harbor Terrace is the perfect nexus of calm, convenience, and culture. The beautifully landscaped grounds invite you to sit out in one of the community’s gazebos to share a morning cup of coffee with your neighbor. You will find the two parking passes that come with this particular unit extremely convenient when arriving home from work or unloading groceries. Walk a few blocks south and you will find yourself in the heart of historic Old Town Alexandria with incredible restaurants, boutiques, and coffee shops. Literally three steps from your parking lot is the Mount Vernon Trail with nearly 18 miles of paved bike trail that follows the Potomac River’s shoreline. The Big City more your thing? You are a single traffic light from the bridge taking you into Washington DC! A commuter’s dream come true, this home is just minutes, either by car or via the nearby metro stop, from the Pentagon, National Airport, the new Amazon HQs and the Nation’s Capital. And it’s getting even better! Steps are underway to redevelop the former Potomac River Generating Station into a mixed-use district that will include retail and residential properties as well as arts, theater and cultural opportunities for the community. Come experience it for yourself. You won’t be disappointed!
