Come and escape the crush of the day in this modern home at the foot of nature paths, a babbling creek, and tree-lined streets, all in the heart of West Alexandria. Welcome to Dowden Terrace and this classic mid-century home! 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, on 2 levels. Enter through the custom front entry door, hang your hat and take in the views directly through several large floor-to-ceiling windows out to mature trees and lush landscaping. Floor-to-ceiling windows on main level let the daylight flood in for a bright interior space. Original hardwood floors throughout the main level. One of two brick wood-burning fireplaces provide warmth and ambiance. Custom updated kitchen includes quartz Silestone counters, 28" wall oven, Viking gas cook top, stainless steel appliances and ample cabinet storage. Gaze out the large windows to see the side yard, a tulip magnolia, and squirrels and birds up close. "Best view in the house", says the owner. Spacious master bedroom with sitting room provides a quiet owner's corner, or divide the master bedroom into two smaller bedrooms. 2nd bedroom and full bathroom with tub are also on main level. Large dining and living room provide plenty of floor space on the main level for entertaining small or large groups. A screened porch and custom deck are accessible from the dining room or living room, with access to the covered carport or lower patio area. The lower level has a fully finished family room with the 2nd brick wood-burning fireplace and large picture window. A 3rd bedroom and 2nd full bathroom, open space, and laundry closet offers the lower level the convenience of one-floor living. Huge storage/utility space can serve as a wood shop, crafting area, or simply additional storage. Storage/utility space has additional storage closet. Large lower level picture windows allow plenty of light to stream in on this level just like on the main level.
