In this week’s NoVa Best New Listings, we take a look at a Rosemont Craftsman with a wine bar, a Fairlington townhouse that has what could be the perfect dining space, and a Del Ray bungalow with a fully landscaped pond in the backyard.
1920s Del Ray Bungalow with Pond
Water features with houses are not all that common these days (rain barrels don’t count), so the adorable pond in the backyard of this cute yellow 1920s Del Ray bungalow is pretty special. It’s landscaped and even dotted with lily pads, making it not too bad a bad place to kick back. And when it’s too cold or rainy to pull up a chair and hang out by the pond, the home’s good-sized country kitchen, fireplace, and sizeable covered front porch are also good places for relaxing.
- Full Listing: 18 W. Del Ray Avenue, Alexandria, Va. (map)
- Price: $639,900
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Year Built: 1920
- Listing Agent: Jennifer Walker, McEnearney Associates
Rosemont Park Five-Bedroom with Wine Bar
A lot of homes have informal entryways where shoes, umbrellas, and backpacks can be tossed, but this five-bedroom home in the Rosemont section of Alexandria has a full-on mudroom. Most houses have a laundry room/area, but this home has two of them. And a lot of residences have a wet bar for entertaining, but this million-dollar listing boasts a “wine bar,” which has plenty of custom storage space for long-stemmed glasses and bottles of vino. The bar, which uses the same champagne granite and white wood used in the kitchen, is an awfully impressive place to pour a drink. And if you’re not a big wine drinker, there is no rule that says the area can’t be used to store bottles of Jim Beam and Grey Goose.
- Full Listing: 24 Masonic View Avenue East, Alexandria, Va. (map)
- Price: $1,295,000
- Bedrooms: Five
- Bathrooms: Four
- Year Built: 1935
- Listing Agent: William Reuther, DC Living Real Estate
Fairlington Townhouse with Ideal Dining Space
Open floorplans are great, except when it comes time to use a collection of throw rugs to distinguish “dining” space from “living room” space from “entry” space. This two-bedroom Fairlington townhouse has an open first-floor layout, but enough of a dining nook so that the main level still feels bright and airy, and you won’t have to spend a lot of time trying to figure out where the dining room table should go.
- Full Listing: 4676 36th Street, South, Unit B, Arlington, Va. (map)
- Price: $429,900
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1940
