Spectacularly Remodeled Home Inside and Out
No detail was overlooked in this thoroughly, thoughtfully and, above all, beautifully updated Colonial in Alexandria’s Braddock Heights neighborhood. Working with an architecture firm consistently ranked as one of the region’s best, inspired touches have been applied throughout the property. Featuring custom Porcelanosa cabinetry from Spain and luxury Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, the open kitchen blends seamlessly with the family room, which in turn spills out into a stunningly landscaped backyard with Pennsylvania Bluestone patio. The home also features a traditional living and dining room, no less than three fireplaces, a cathedral-ceilinged master suite with two walk-in closets and luxury bath, two additional bedrooms upstairs, an upper level laundry with new washer and dryer, a fully finished lower level with a full bath and a detached garage.
- House was remodeled and addition constructed in 2006. Over the past 10 years, the property has been completed updated. Improvements have been guided by 3 North, consistenly voted as the leading design and architecture firm in Virginia, whose clients have included The Homestead, Grove Park Inn, Bedford Springs Hotel, Pinehurst and numerous wineries and estate-caliber residential properties throughout the region.
- The property’s landscape was significantly renovated in 2014, including new hardscapes by one of the most prominent stonemasons in the region and new plantings in every bed. The Landscape Architect was Melissa Gildea whose projects have included the Washington National Cathedral Bishop’s Garden and George Washington’s Mount Vernon Library.
- Eco-friendly construction choices have been made to the greatest extent possible throughout the house, including Zero VOC Benjamin Moore Natura paint, water saving dual flush Toto toilets in every bathroom and plant-based binded Knauff Ecobatt insulation in the attic.
