Virtual open house SAT, 11/7 | 12PM | /www.facebook.com/TheLizLukeTeam/live Expansive lot, on a cul-de-sac in Fairfax County, with close proximity to several public parks, exercise trails, shopping centers, 8721 Oak Leaf Drive provides a peaceful, convenient home for folks looking to reside in a more suburban Alexandria location. The approachable front exterior, with wide, paved driveway lining the yard to the right and the open porch inviting guests up the walkway, presents a welcoming image to guests. Through the front door, the foyer features two large coat closets to the left and stairs to the upper level to the right. The polished hardwood floors throughout the main living spaces lead guests down the foyer to the left, into the open kitchen and living spaces, the fluidity of which gracefully meld cooking with family time. The built-ins around the fireplace hold favorite family photos, books, and display pieces, as well as the first of the conveying mounted televisions. The wiring for the mounted TV and entertainment systems is built into the shelves, creating a clean look, free of wires. All the windows on the main level are massive, allowing natural light to pour into the living spaces. Off the casual breakfast area adjacent to the eat-in kitchen, is the formal dining room, especially flooded with natural light. Two of the three walls feature extra tall windows, and the third holds glass French doors, offering guests (and furry family members) easy passage to the backyard. Step onto the raised wooden deck, newly restained with an added pergola - string up market lights to create wonderful ambiance for flexible entertaining. A couple steps down, the slate patio provides additional structured exterior living space, as it overlooks the remaining half acre of the fully fenced backyard. Upcoming holiday parties can flow inside and out - add a firepit to the grilling area on the patio and guests can warm up after selecting tasty treats at the buffet on the expansive dining room table. The conveying storage shed, with a new roof and fresh coat of paint, and playground equipment line the back fence, leaving plenty of open green space for those with a green thumb to plant an extensive garden, or to install a pool for next summer season! Back inside past the stairs on the main level is the first bedroom. Entry-level, with it's own bathroom and conveying Murphy bed, is the perfect space for in-laws or an au-pair. The large powder room for guests lies down the hall from the kitchen. New carpet in all of the bedrooms, the upper level houses the remaining three, including the primary suite, and the laundry room. The two other bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with a double sink and full tub shower. The primary bedroom features vaulted ceilings, two large walk-in closets, and an attached bath with a water closet for privacy. A flexible space at the top of the steps could function as an at-home office, an arts and crafts area, or library. Just at the end of the cul-de-sac, the spacious public park provides open green space, a playground, tennis courts, and walking trails, for convenient exercise and weekend family outings. Oak Leaf Drive is 2 miles from history at George Washington's Mount Vernon, the event center for many seasonal activities, as well as daily historical tours of the plantation. The Mount Vernon Country Club is 3 minutes away, adding golf to the list of social activities in the area. Two convenient shopping centers are located on Richmond Highway, Woodlawn Shopping Center is 5 minutes around the corner, featuring Safeway, Firehouse Subs, and more, and Mount Vernon Plaza is 15 minutes down the road, offering Costco, Home Depot, Walmart, and a variety of additional shopping and dining options. For commuters, Fort Belvoir is a 10 minute drive down Route 1, and access to I-95 and I-395 is a few stoplights away, for a straight shot into Alexandria, Arlington, and Washington D.C.
