Home of the week


Walls of windows provide a panoramic view from the open, flowing dining, kitchen and living area in this Alexandria House corner unit. It overlooks the Potomac River, Washington and Old Town, as well as the surrounding summer and autumn foliage. Glass doors lead from the living area and both bedrooms out to the balcony, which is especially inviting at this time of year.

The front door opens onto the living room, which thus welcomes visitors with the spectacular scenery. This first impression is enhanced by the sight of the hardwood floors that unify this living space and the granite counters in the kitchen. Granite counters also appear in both baths.

A full bathroom is strategically located between the living area and the adjoining carpeted bedroom. The other bedroom has its own bath.

The community includes a swimming pool, deck and sauna to help make the Alexandria House a four-season hit.
