NoVa Best New Listings: Del Ray, Golf Club Manor, Fort Ellsworth

by Sarah Godfrey

In this week’s edition of NoVa Best New Listings, we look at an understated urban farm house in Del Ray, a condo with a kitchen balcony in Fort Ellsworth, and an sleek renovation of a 1950’s Golf Club Manor rambler.

Open, Modern-feel Arlington Rambler

The modern upgrades to this Arlington ’50s rambler are numerous—metal ceiling fans, enormous windows, recessed lighting, and a glass-filled half-bath that could be one of the best-looking powder rooms in the area. The effect of the empty main floor is so modern and sleek that it almost seems a shame to furnish it. The lower level, with its white-washed wood paneling, brick fireplace, and big farmhouse doors that separate a family room from laundry/mud room areas, is just as slick, but cozy, too.

Urban Farm House in Del Ray

While farmhouse style homes don’t necessarily have much in common with actual farm houses, this three-bedroom home just off of Mount Vernon Avenue definitely gives off a rustic vibe, thanks to wood flooring throughout, shabby chic distressed cabinetry in the kitchen, and a garden out back that any ambitious urban farmer type should have no problem maintaining or expanding.

Alexandria Condo with Balcony off of the Kitchen

It has happened to almost every condo/apartment-dweller at some point: You’re cooking up a storm in the kitchen, set off the smoke detector, and then you find yourself using a dish towel to direct smoke out of a teeny tiny kitchen window, or a larger window in an adjoining room. That scenario is unlikely to play out in this well-maintained one-bedroom condo near the King Street Metro, as it has a huge balcony that can be accessed from the upgraded kitchen: If things get too smoky, you can just fling open the sliding glass door.
