Working with an agent that focuses on Overlook makes a difference.
BCP got our client a full price offer for their beautifully upgraded home, at the highest sale price in Overlook history for an interior TH, even after the market slow down started in response to higher interest rates. This sale result matches the high price points BCP obtained in June 2021 (5265 Cozy Glen) and December 2021 (5277 Morning Mist), which provides valuation support for the remainder of 2022.
BCP achieved this result for our client while comparable THs in Cameron Station with a similiar list price, but an empty house or sparse furnishings, sat for 2+ months with price reductions of $20-40K to chase a buyer down to a lower level.
As a service to our clients, BCP fully furnished our client's empty house from the "House of BCP" interior design collection to create the maximum visual impact that drives buyer interest.
Please enjoy this 3 bed, 3 full & 1 half bath, 2-car garage, 2558 finished sq.ft. TH in the Overlook community located at Alexandria’s West End.
The quality & scope of the upgrades throughout the house present a rarely found opportunity: A truly move-in ready home located inside the Beltway with immediate access to 395/495/95, but also within a tree-lined, green-space community surrounding a Fairfax County Park.
Overlook is also perfectly positioned for residents to reap “livability” and house valuation benefits from the forthcoming WestEnd Alexandria development project (formerly Landmark Mall) and other planned projects along the Landmark-Van Dorn Corridor.
A full description of the house features and upgrades and the Overlook community is provided below. A detailed summary is also provided on the mixed-use redevelopment plan for Landmark Mall with Inova building a World-class medical facility as the new Alexandria hospital.
The new homeowner can enjoy the upgrades and appointments from every space inside the house, starting from the dramatic view from the foyer of the open floorplan. A focus on the details – both big and small – is apparent throughout the house, from the visual impact of the focal point light fixtures to the brushed nickel hardware on every door in the house, including hinges, with levers replacing knobs for a more elegant look and feel.
- Once inside, the house opens to a large living room. A triple window provides natural light for this space. Two columns create a “door” leading into the open kitchen with seating areas for relaxing and entertaining.
- The kitchen has a cook's layout that is ready for entertaining, with an island sink, ample prep room, stainless steel GE appliances (including a double oven), maple cabinets, and granite counters. The island bar is sized for eating or watching the cook at work, with room for three stools.
- The open kitchen is sized for a dining table and a separate space for a sofa or sectional with windows that overlook the green space behind the house.
- The deck off the kitchen allows al fresco dining or entertaining. The mature trees behind the house provide both privacy and a pleasing view when inside the house or on the deck.
- The Owner's Suite is large enough to make a King-size bed look small, with the spacious feeling emphasized by a vaulted ceiling. A separate seating area with four windows lets in morning light for a relaxing read of the paper or a weekend nap. The Owner's Suite offers enough space for an office set-up if you prefer workspace to lounging space.
- The Owner's Suite Bathroom has been upgraded with granite vanity tops, polished chrome faucets, framed mirrors, and light fixtures.
- The Owner's Suite has two walk-in closets.
- The 2nd & 3rd bedrooms are each sized to accommodate a Queen bed, with a double door closet.
- The 2nd bathroom upstairs has also been upgraded with a granite vanity top, polished chrome fixture, framed mirror, and light fixture.
- The walk-in laundry is located on the Bedroom Level.
- The Lower Level has ample room to watch a large screen TV. The built-in desk, cabinets, and shelves provide a ready-made office or library. The Lower Level has 14-foot ceilings with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide natural light, with the tobacco-finish Luxury Vinyl Plank floors, gas fireplace, and the wrought-iron light fixture overhead providing a warmth to this space.
- The Lower Level also has a full bath.
- All interior and exterior light fixtures in the house have been upgraded, with emphasis put on the focal point fixtures in the entry, upper stairs, kitchen, and Lower Level to provide both light and visual appeal.
- The garage is a two-car, single door model, with a separate storage area and overhead storage racks.
- The driveway offers parking space for two cars. Visitor parking is available steps from the front door facing the green space and mature trees across from the house.
- Residents can park in Visitor parking.
- A new roof was installed in June 2017.
- The HVAC system (Carrier Infinity system) and water heater were installed in June 2020 and Spring 2015, respectively.
- The carpet throughout the house was installed in July 2022. The Luxury Vinyl Plank on Lower Level was installed at same time.
- The house exterior was painted & decks stained in September 2021.
