Best New Listings: A Storefront-Turned-Loft on F Street

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes a cute Cape Cod in Alexandria, an adorable Dutch Colonial in Chevy Chase, and a former storefront off Stanton Park.


1,000 Square Feet and Ample Outdoor Space

This cute three-bedroom Cape Cod sits a couple blocks from Mount Vernon District Park in Alexandria. A deep driveway leads up to the angular, fenced-in yard, which has garden areas and a partially-covered brick patio, along with a large shed and a doghouse-sized storage unit attached to the house. A nonet of windows go nearly to the floor in the living room, which is deep enough for a second sitting area or office nook. The kitchen has a tile backsplash and matching countertops, along with a wall exhaust unit above the stove, and stainless steel shelves floating around a window above a butcher block countertop/cutting board. One bedroom and bathroom is on the main level, while the other two bedrooms share a bath upstairs under cove ceilings.

Picturesque in Chevy Chase
