Most of the time we have to choose between city living and gorgeous views, but not when it comes to this townhouse at 704 Fords Landing Way in Alexandria. This is definitely a have your cake and eat it, too moment. Just 8 miles from the nation’s capital, this property combines the convenience of living in a city with relaxing water views for the best of both worlds.
The back of the 1998 build — which underwent a renovation in 2019 — faces Ford’s Landing Park and the Potomac River, which is sure to provide Instagram-worthy sunrises. Inside the classic Colonial townhouse, potential homebuyers will find an open floor plan with over 3,100 square feet, a two-car garage, four bedrooms, three full baths, two half baths, and hardwood throughout the four-floor space. This property is currently listed at $3,495,000.
When you walk into the second-level kitchen, you’ll realize how special this space actually is. The polished marble countertops and premier stainless steel appliances perfectly combine with the all-white space, giving it a bright, clean look. And that’s only half of the room.
If you turn to the right, you’ll notice an abundance of extra counter and storage space. The cabinets alone are to die for. With wall and base cabinet storage covering two whole walls, the next homeowner will be able to store all of their special place settings and kitchen gadgets with room to spare.
Even though company tends to gather around the kitchen, we’re betting the lower-level living room will be the best hang-out spot in this home. Not only does this space have beautiful built-ins, a gas fireplace, and a wet bar, but it also opens out to the patio for incredible views any time of the day.
Speaking of the patio views, who wouldn’t want to wake up to that amazing water scenery? Between the lofty ceilings and gas fireplace, you’ll find it hard to get out of bed. And, once you do, the hardest question you’ll have to answer is whether you want to enjoy your morning coffee from the primary bedroom’s sitting area or on the balcony taking in the crisp waterfront air.
Head past the two walk-in closets to reach the bathroom, which is over-the-top. The space features a double vanity (with even more storage space), soaking tub, and walk-in shower.
