Looking to reside in a quiet and secluded neighborhood, but still be located close to all the exciting events, amenities, and public transit that make Alexandria among the very best places to live? Welcome home to 5598 Governors Pond Circle. This fantastic end-unit 2-car garage townhome is ideally located close to the Metro, shopping, and dining. And best of all, it's ready for you to call it home! All the big-ticket items have been done! The newer roof (in 2020) features architectural shingles and gutter guards, the driveway has been replaced and recently resealed, and a new energy- efficient Carrier HVAC system has been installed. The home has been freshly painted throughout and features high quality carpet with plush padding on the upper and lower levels, hardwood floors throughout the main level and all interior staircases, and professional soundproofing of the main level common wall. All of this, coupled with ample daylighting and a nice southeast morning exposure combine to create a welcoming single-family home feel. The lovely hardwood floors, custom window treatments, and crown molding add character throughout the main level. The open kitchen boasts 42-inch cabinetry with under-cabinet LED lighting, granite counters, custom glass tile backsplash, a high bar area for serving, and all new appliances, including a stainless-steel French door fridge, Bosch dishwasher and a gas stove with double oven. Just off the kitchen is the real showstopper - the fabulous sunroom! Cathedral ceilings and transom windows beckon you in. Imagine sipping your morning coffee and reading your latest novel in this room as the sun warms you throughout. French doors provide ready access to the raised rear deck, which overlooks lush green surroundings with mature trees. It’s a peaceful and secluded place to BBQ, dine al fresco, or just unwind at the end of the day. Upstairs you'll find the owner’s suite with a large, attached bath, two additional bedrooms, the convenient laundry area, and a full hallway bath. Tall, vaulted ceilings create a spacious feeling in all the bedrooms and stairwell. The sunlit owner’s bath is highlighted by an alluring skylight, deep soaking tub, double sink vanity, upgraded lighting (matching fixture in hallway bath), and separate shower. Don’t forget to check out the finished walkout lower level. It features a rec room with an inviting gas fireplace, a sliding glass door leading out to the covered fieldstone patio, and a full bath - a perfect option for your weekend guests. There is also easy access to the 2-car garage offering a large storage room - work on DIY projects all year long. Since the location is so ideal, it’s worth mentioning again. This home offers an easy commute to Huntington Metro station and bus service. Just a couple of lights will take you to I-95/495, Route 1, and the George Washington Parkway. It is located minutes to Old Town, Alexandria, National Harbor, Pentagon, Reagan National Airport, Joint Base Andrews, Ft. Belvoir, and more!
