Welcome to your castle on the Potomac! This impressive luxury home features beautiful views of the Potomac River, an incredible gourmet chef's kitchen and your very own private lot and dock on the river. The home has seemingly unlimited space with 6 spacious bedroom suites, an expansive finished basement with theater room and a 2 story classical library. The location right off of the George Washington Parkway, the Mount Vernon Trail and the majestic Potomac River and the close proximity to the nightlife, fine dining, art galleries and shopping options of Old Town Alexandria, National Harbor and Washington DC make this the perfect place to call home.
Imagine waking up this your comfortable new master suite. You open the terrace doors, letting the sunlight wake you up as you watch the beauty created by the sun rising over the Potomac, just beyond the trees. Heading downstairs you get the day started and prepare yourself a morning snack in the kitchen, thinking about the endless activities you have to choose from on this relaxing morning.
It could be the perfect day to walk down to your private dock and hop on your boat for a scenic cruise of the Potomac. Perhaps you will head into Old Town Alexandria for a gourmet lunch at one of the area's top rated restaurants and a stroll through the famous Torpedo Factory Art Gallery. Maybe you will drive or metro into DC for some museum hopping, sightseeing or a ballgame. You could even journey over to National Harbor for a ride on the Capital Ferris Wheel, to see a show or test your luck at the brand new casino. The possibilities are endless and you haven't even left the riverside!
If the day is going to be a little more laid back you might keep it local. You could enjoy a nice stroll or bike ride down the Mount Vernon Trail, have a picnic on the water at Belle Haven Park or take a short scenic drive down the George Washington Parkway to historic Mount Vernon. You may even opt to spend the day at the country club, playing tennis, sitting by the pool or getting in a quick 18 holes of golf. No matter what you choose, you are sure to have a good time living in the most beautiful area of Alexandria.
In the evening you are hosting a housewarming party to welcome those you care about to your new home. While hors d'oeuvres are served throughout the main level, guests will take note of the great sight-lines to the river and all the luxurious touches the home provides. Party goers will take advantage of all the space your home has to offer, conversing on the back patio, in the sunroom, at the dining table, in the basement and even in the kitchen where there is more then enough room to prepare dishes and mingle without being overcrowded.
The highlight of the party, will be when it shifts across the street to your personal riverside patio & dock. As the sun goes down and the beauty of the pink sky starts to sparkle over the water, your guests will be awestruck by the gorgeous scenery. Whether they are sitting on the patio with drinks or walking down the garden stairs to the dock for a closer look, they will be experiencing moments they won't soon forget.
When the party comes to an end and the last guest walks out the door with a smile on their face, you fall back into your new home to relax. If you are up for it you might watch a movie with surround sound in your theater room, do some light reading in your classical library or just retire to the master bath for a nice relaxing end of day soak in the tub. When you finally lay your head down for the night you think to yourself..."I love this home...I love MY home..."
