One-of-a-kind, expanded home tucked away in the sought-after Palisades. The largest in the neighborhood, this well-maintained home is light and bright with lovely views of nature from every room and spacious living on all three levels.

The main level is perfect for entertaining and everyday living, featuring a formal living room, dining room, home office/den and a large open kitchen with granite counters and a casual eating area. The formal dining room is large and open and has a brick fireplace. The kitchen flows into the 20x 30ft great room with cathedral ceilings and oversized custom windows that allow you to enjoy magnificent four-season views. Upgraded custom French doors and sliders lead out onto the wrap-around deck - perfect for grilling, bird-watching and Summer parties.

Upstairs are four bedrooms including a spacious (360sf) primary suite with skylights, a loft, ensuite bath and exceptional closet space. There are three additional bedrooms upstairs. Hallways and ceiling heights are above the standard size.

The walk-out lower level has a full kitchenette, recreation room, full bath and tons of storage. Ideal for a playroom, the lower level could also function as an in-law or au'pair suite.

This home is an excellent value given the size and location. Recent $57,000 cedar shake roof replacement!
The rear of the property is an unexpected bonus backing to County-protected natural forest with 100-foot Oaks and a creek that requires no homeowner maintenance.

The Palisades neighborhood is one of Alexandria's hidden gems. Located so close-in yet somewhat hidden away. The quiet tree-lined streets make you'll feel as though you've escaped all of the hustle and bustle of the DMV.
