Off a Creek Without a Paddle

Just up a hill from Little Hunting Creek in southern Alexandria, this four bedroom house has a path down to a private dock at the water's edge. The open living/dining room has two huge picture windows at the center of one wall, and glass doors on either side of the windows open onto a deck. The bones of a wall separate the living/dining room from the kitchen, creating floating shelves and a pass-through window/breakfast bar. Modern cabinetry conceals the fridge, and there are stacked ovens next to a built-in desk spanning a window with a bar area on the other side. Two bedrooms and 2.5 baths are on the main level, and up a few stairs, the other two bedroom suites are off a skylit landing, with the owner's bedroom offering a fireplace and access to a balcony.The community where the house is located also has a pool and tennis court.

The entry hall of this one-bedroom at Atlantic Plumbing also houses a closet, a washer/dryer, and a pantry near where the hall spills into the open concept living area. The one-wall kitchen has a refrigerator recessed into an adjacent wall and has floating shelves amidst its cabinetry, including one mounted on the subway-tiled backsplash. A stainless steel farmhouse basin sink shares a counter with the integrated cooktop, and the kitchen also enjoys natural light from the living area, where gridded windows make up the majority of the far wall. The owner's bedroom has a similar wall of windows and a walk-in closet, and the bathroom is on the other side of a hall/office nook separated from the living room by a barn door. The condo comes with a reserved garage parking space, and residents can access the amenities at their own building and at the other Atlantic Plumbing building.
