Property Description

Simple 1920s detail blends with stylish modern upgrades in this renovated Colonial Dutch in Rosemont Park. Spectacular original features have been beautifully maintained - refinished hardwood floors, painted radiators, and windows with elegant trim. The contemporary upgrades, particularly the remodeled kitchen and bathroom, have thoughtfully transformed this property into a functional and stylish home for the modern family. Surrounded by parks and family-friendly streets, within walking distance to popular restaurants on Mount Vernon Ave and King Street, plus Braddock Metro Station for a quick commute, 23 E Oak is the quintessential Alexandria property you've been looking for. The wide portico frames the cheerful, red front door, welcoming you home. Inside, the entryway is open, the upper level staircase set back, giving a symmetrical appearance and allowing extra room in the foyer to greet friends and family. A pristine kitchen with white, slow close cabinets and custom-cut backsplash, is further brightened by recessed and under cabinet lighting. All appliances are easy-to-clean stainless steel, and stand out against the gorgeous quartz countertops. The deep Farmhouse sink makes cleaning up a breeze, and a sizable island offers breakfast bar seating, built-in microwave, dishwasher, and wine fridge. The kitchen flows into the formal dining area, the restructured main level creates an open-concept floor plan. Spacious and cozy, enter the living room through the sophisticated, widened doorway, reminiscent of 1920s construction. The newly rebuilt wood-burning fireplace stands out with a painted white brick surround highlighting the custom conveying screen and flush stone hearth. Bright throughout, windows with custom one-touch cordless blinds let natural light pour in from all sides of the home, while the added recessed lighting provides ample illumination in the evenings. Three spacious bedrooms and a full bath are set off the roomy upper level hall, where the refinished hardwood flooring continues. The primary suite, with a walk-in closet and updated ensuite bath, fits a King-sized bed with room for additional furniture. The eastern window exposure allows the sun to gently encourage you out of bed, well-rested and ready to take on the day. Downstairs offers bonus space to make your own! The bonus room, currently used as a guest bedroom, can be transformed into a work-from-home office or a virtual learning hub. The rec. room is perfect for game breaks throughout the day - set up a foosball table or craft center to let the creativity flow. Walkout stairs provide easy access to the backyard. The convenient full bath with tub shower is private for overnight guests. Step out from the kitchen onto the two-tiered deck, made of Trex composite material with PVC risers. The fully enclosed backyard features a neighbor-friendly privacy fence, creating a secluded entertaining space. Set up a movie screen for summer evening showings of your favorite blockbusters! Easily keep an eye on younger members of the family as they explore the conveying playground equipment. The two-car detached garage has a new door with Wifi enabled opener, making secure Amazon deliveries a breeze! French drains are installed in front of the garage to quickly wash away summer showers. In-ground lighting brightens the backyard for evenings that continue well after bedtime. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood off W Braddock Road, this property is convenient for easy travel, whether by foot, car, or public transport. E Oak St is walking distance to eateries in Del Ray like Lena's Wood-Fired Pizza and Tap and South China. Catch the free King St trolley down to the water for weekend nights out. Two blocks from Maury Elementary and five blocks from George Washington Middle Schools for easy drop off and pick up. Commuters and sightseers can catch the Green, Orange, Silver, or Yellow line into the city at Braddock Metro Station, a four block walk from your porch.
