Best New Listings: The Northern Virginia Edition

by Jennifer Thornhill

In this week’s Northern Virginia edition of Best New Listings, we look at a loft-style townhouse in Old Town, an expanded farmhouse in Del Ray, and a five-bedroom custom home in Country Club Hills.


Loft-style Old Town Townhouse with Views of July 4th Fireworks

This three-bedroom townhouse a few blocks from Old Town’s King Street has an airy first floor that includes a home office and family room, which opens onto a flagstone patio shaded by magnolia trees. The second floor has an open floorplan with 9-foot ceilings and oversized windows, and a floorplan that includes a kitchen, and dining and living areas that flow together. Three bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, are upstairs, as is a tiled roof deck from which the eventual buyer can watch fireworks on July 4th and admire the Washington Monument when the trees lose their foliage.


Expanded Farmhouse Near Del Ray’s Commonwealth Avenue

The Main Street, USA feeling of Del Ray’s Commonwealth Avenue extends to Mosby Street where this quaint, recently expanded farmhouse is located. In typical farmhouse fashion, the three-bedroom listing includes a picket fence, symmetrical design, and a wide front porch — in this case, painted pale blue with a porch swing and red front door. The home has a number of living spaces, including a finished lower level rec room and a patio in the landscaped backyard. Potential owners (particularly parents out there) will likely appreciate that the home’s master suite is set back from the other bedrooms.

  • Full listing: 2709 Mosby Street, Alexandria, VA (map)
  • Price: $835,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Year Built: 1928
  • Listing Agent: Elizabeth Lucchesi, McEnearney Associates, Inc.


Custom Five-Bedroom Home in Country Club

This custom five-bedroom home in Country Club was built in 1990, so while a new owner may want to make some updates to the finishes, the underlying design functions well. The large chef’s kitchen has eight gas burners and two Jenn-air ovens, lots of cabinets, a cathedral ceiling and even a dumbwaiter. The master suite is located on the first floor, while the second and third floors each have two nicely sized bedrooms. Cherry and maple floors, as well as hardwood door and window frames, are found throughout the home, and the backyard has a brick patio and a large wood deck. Like the other homes featured this week, this listing is walking distance to neighborhood shops and restaurants.

  • Full listing: 4711 24th Road N, Arlington, VA (map)
  • Price: $899,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 4.5
  • Year Built: 1990
  • Listing Agent: Christopher Wilkes, Washington Fine Properties, LLC
