About The Property
1600 King James Place
Welcome to 1600 King James Place. Situated on a beautifully landscaped lot, this stunning brick Colonial boasts spacious, formal rooms for entertaining, with high ceilings and other unique and classic features throughout.
The gracious, two-story foyer entrance sets the tone for touring the rest of this stately home. Crisp crown molding, handsome picture frame wainscoting, recessed lighting and gleaming hardwood floors extend from the entryway to all rooms on the main level.
From the foyer, walk down two steps to enter into the elegant formal living room. Envision entertaining for the holidays and warming yourself by the wood-burning fireplace. During cozy weather season and beyond, the room is bathed in natural, sunny light. It features custom built-in bookshelves and cabinets with Palladian arch features.
The formal dining room is also accessible from the foyer. This grand space can comfortably host a large gathering. Your dinner parties will be perfectly accompanied by the music playing from your Sonos wireless system.
Down the open hallway on the main level, the family room is a welcoming space with a wood- burning fireplace with brick accent. French doors separate this room from the formal living room; when opened, they allow for easy entertaining and a comfortable flow from room to room. This theme of open access extends to the second set of French doors that lead to the outdoor entertainment space.
The gourmet eat-in kitchen is the heart of this home! You will appreciate its granite countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, six-burner Viking stove, large center island with breakfast bar, separate desk space, and bright bay window with seating. A mudroom is conveniently adjacent to the kitchen.
The office is located near the entry hall, but tucked away for privacy. With this room’s great light and Sonos wiring, working from home becomes a pleasurable experience! Alternatively, adding a closet could transform the office into a sixth bedroom.
On the upper level, you will find four graciously sized bedrooms. The master suite is your getaway — a private refuge with gas-burning fireplace, custom built-in shelves and cabinets for extra storage, and space for a wall-mounted television. An en-suite bathroom is more like a mini spa with its oversized Jacuzzi tub, walk-in steam shower, separate sinks and vanities, ample counter space and large walk-in closet. There are two other full bathrooms on this level that are equally updated. The additional bedrooms are sunny and comfortable, and all rooms have hardwood floors.
The home’s lower level is where the fun begins! A large media room with surround sound and room for a 60” television is where you will want to spend your free time watching your favorite sports or movies. There is plenty of open space for a ping-pong or pool table. Two extra rooms on this level serve as flexible spaces for an office, exercise room, or guest retreat. There is even a full bath and a walk-in cedar closet. Plush carpeting adds to the openness and versatility of the space, and the tray ceilings enhance its charm.
This exquisite Colonial is a commanding sight on well-manicured grounds. In the warmer months, cook and dine al fresco on the gorgeous patio, complete with built-in grill and sink. Overlook the serene, green space while enjoying music from the home’s Sonos system that extends outdoors. An attached two-car garage with built-in storage provides convenience.
This home is convenient to Interstates 395 and 495, grocery stores, shops, and restaurants. It is walkable to Inova Alexandria Hospital, Fort Ward Park, St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes middle and upper school campuses, Bishop Ireton and Episcopal High Schools, as well as Francis C. Hammond Middle School. Old Town, National Airport and the Pentagon are all just ten minutes away.
