Back on the market and sparkling with a fresh top to bottom paint job, new Karastan carpeting, this sun-drenched Torpedo Factory townhouse offers convenience and livability in this beautiful secluded enclave located in the most envious of Old Town locations - only one block from King Street and the Potomac River waterfront! Separate dining room, fireplace, hard wood floors, brand new Karastan carpet, assigned garage parking! Very private courtyard entrance-way! Positioned so that the largest rooms are sun-filled, this unique home remains bright and cheery all year long. Enjoy both a patio for grilling and dining, and a pleasantly landscaped front entryway. This long time owner has lovingly cared for this home, and greatly enhanced it with a new kitchen, and two new bathrooms by award winning firm "Cameo Kitchens" of Falls Church. Alexandria, and particularly Old Town is enjoying a tremendous influx of interest and activity because of the many exciting additions to our restaurant roster, retail stores, and the opening up of our beautiful riverfront at the foot of historic King Street. This unique home offers the ability to live just steps from the heart of one of the DC area's most vibrant communities. King Street is DC's only real "Promenade" blessed with unique retail shops and restaurants galore. Alexandria discourages "big box stores" in favor of supporting a thriving 'bijou" retail presence throughout the city, and as a result Old Town has become a vibrant and bustling shopping "mecca". The exclusive Torpedo Factory enclave affords one the close proximity to exciting Old Town, Reagan Airport, museums, parks and many recreational activities, as well as, easy access to the Metro, free Old Town Trolley, Metro Transit buses, and water taxis. Our river has opened up with many more access options than ever before including sunset cruises, water taxis to Georgetown, the DC Wharf, Nationals Park and National Harbor! Hurry to this wonderful property, and begin enjoying all the wonderful amenities that Old Town Alexandria has to offer!
