Property Description

Darling Madison model in idyllic Parkfairfax features a multitude of recent upgrades behind your very own front door. The owners have renovated with attention to every little detail - from adding trim details, tiger-eye porcelain door knobs and antiqued hardware to the solid wood interior and exterior doors, high end plumbing and lighting fixtures, and the sleek black finishes that tie everything together. This is NOT an investor flip, but is the loving remodel of careful owners who wanted to display the full charm of this historic, pre-war building that they loved so much in their years here. The unusually large, newer windows look out upon the treed, private common areas in the front and back of the unit, offering true privacy. From the ground level entry in this private courtyard, you’ll find a huge closet and real entry space. The 2021 kitchen remodel is beautiful and functional, with Bosch dishwasher, white soft close cabinetry, white and grey granite counters, white subway tile backsplash, and grey hexagon tile floors. The kitchen opens to the large dining and living room spaces that are awash with natural light. 
 Upstairs, giving more of a townhouse feel, the bathroom has been smartly renovated with new toilet, vanity, hardware, flooring, neutral white tile, and features modern black finishes and accents (2021). The two bedrooms with hardwood floors are a generous size and have the in-unit, upstairs laundry easily accessible with new sliding modern doors in the large hallway closet with lots of shelving. Rare floored attic storage is easy with the pull down metal stairs and new ladder. Plus, with an upgraded electrical panel and outlets (2018), new AC/Heat wall units (2021), and overhead lighting and fixtures (2021), there is little left for you to do! As a special bonus, this is one of the very best courtyards in Parkfairfax. Parking is only ONE doorway away, one pool is right across the street and another is just behind you, and the Dash and Metrobus stop outside the building is the second to last stop before it gets to the Pentagon! One of the easier walks to Shirlington, this location is simply ideal. In making this home yours, you can enjoy living in a vibrant community that was once home to former Presidents and other high ranking officials. Highly unique in offerings this close to DC, you’ll love using the 3 outdoor pools, 8 tennis courts, basketball court, exercise room, library, party rooms, car maintenance area and car wash, attending community events like plant and yard sales, and walking to the Sunday Farmer's Market in Fairlington. Plus, it's easy on the wallet - the condo fee INCLUDES water and gas, only pay electricity and internet.
