Charming Del Ray home and garden with the perfect location: where Main Street still exists! Welcome to 1402 Mount Vernon Avenue. The idyllic white picket fence greets you as you enter into the gorgeous front yard. A garden sanctuary abounds with more than a thousand spring bulbs (tulips, daffodils, and snowdrops). Mature boxwoods frame climbing English roses, white hydrangeas, trellised jasmine vines, and a specimen red maple tree. Enter into the home's foyer and head to the living room, where custom built-ins surround a wood burning fireplace, ideal for chilly spring evenings. The spacious living room offers ample seating space for entertaining or movie nights. An adjoining sitting area with picture windows admits abundant light and garden views, offering great space for a home office. The kitchen is bright and cheery with loads of natural light; a charming dutch door leads to a side porch with storage closet. Updated cabinetry, matching stainless Kitchen-Aid appliances (2018-2022) and crisp paint complete this bright space. Head to the dining room; great for hosting dinner parties or for everyday meals. On the upper level you will find three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The primary bedroom features three walk-in closets, a sitting area, built-in linen cabinet, sound system and television hook-ups, a Juliet balcony overlooking the gorgeous yard, and an en-suite bath. The spa-like en-suite was renovated in tasteful, neutral marble with heated floors, glass-walled shower, a large vanity, and built-in cabinets. Across the hall there are two additional bedrooms (each with plantation shutters and ample storage) and another full bath. The lower level includes a recreation room and full bathroom: great as a guest suite, a playroom, or additional living space. The basement also includes storage rooms with laundry area, storage, and household systems, including recently updated AC (2021) and water heater (2018). You will love living just steps to Del Ray's restaurants and shops, where everything is available by foot. Within several blocks you will find a bakery/bistro, Walgreens, YMCA with gym and pool, a grocery store, a beer garden, and several playgrounds. The Braddock Road Metro stop is a 10-minute walk or a 2-minute bus ride from the stop on the corner. Minutes to Reagan National Airport, I-395 and the George Washington Parkway, this is a true commuter's dream. Old Town and Mount Vernon Trail are nearby. A large garden shed with interior greenhouse offers ample storage. The home includes a deeded parking space in the adjoining shared driveway. Welcome Home!
