Who needs a Mediterranean vacation when you get to live in a house like this? Custom-built in 1987, the house at 1405 N. Pegram St. in Alexandria is its own little paradise inside the beltway.
When you pull up to the 1.01-acre property, you’ll quickly notice its curb appeal, with the fountain-centered accent, and rose bushes along the driveway and climbing the trellises on the front exterior. Don’t forget the three attached garage spaces, with arched doors to match the aesthetic.
The eight-bedroom, seven-and-a-half bathroom home is currently listed at $2,249,000. The home also includes a separate au pair or in-law suite with a full bathroom and kitchenette.
The greeting foyer will definitely impress your guests. Expanding across all three levels, look up to catch a glimpse of the sky mural above the chandelier. The curved staircase leads guests up to the main level.
At the top of the steps you’ll find the entertainment room, which features a wood-burning fireplace with intricate carvings, multiple sitting areas, and a wet bar. The skylights and French doors fill the space with natural light. Take a peek outside to see a beautiful view of the backyard.
The kitchen’s stone countertops pop against the all-white kitchen. Centered around the island, the amenities include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, double ovens, a cooktop, and enough storage for your food, cookware, tableware, and more.
The kitchen also features a dumbwaiter, in case you need help carrying your late-night snacks to any level of the house – or would like to eventually install a small elevator.
This formal dining room was meant for entertaining. With plenty of space to host the whole family for holiday dinners, the room also features a buffet table for extra storage and a place to serve drinks.
When you’re not throwing a dinner party, enjoy your meals and morning coffee in the breakfast sunroom. Right off the kitchen, this room gives you stunning nature views no matter the season.
The beautiful property views and natural light continue into the primary bedroom. The room also has two walk-in closets.
The primary bath exudes relaxing spa vibes. Black marble is almost everywhere, including the floor, walk-in shower, and vanity countertop, highlighting the gold accents. The bathroom also has two separate water closets.
The rose trellises continue to the backyard to help create the scene for a private vacation retreat right in your backyard. The space also includes an expansive in-ground pool with a spa and plenty of patio space for entertaining.
