504 Kentucky Avenue
Captivating bygone charm with a modern appeal, 504 Kentucky Avenue is quietly located in the sought after neighborhood of Beverley Hills, and guaranteed to wow buyers from inside out. The living room is a classic and comfortable space with an open layout, a woodburning fireplace highlighted by the original mantel, and designed to suit all occasions from entertaining guests to relaxing after a day at work. Flowing to a casual dining area, a sunny and cheerful room that is adjacent to the renovated kitchen (2015) that features original butcher block countertops, KitchenAid stainless steel appliances (2013), crisp white Subway tile backsplash, and tile floors with an intricate design brings additional flair to an already winning design. Working from home just became easier with a main level den/office which showcases a paneled ceiling, great built-in shelves, drawers, and cabinets. And when you need a break from work or a change of scenery to refocus, step out and into a quaint screened-in porch that overlooks a fantastic, and large, fenced-in backyard with flagstone patio. Moving to the upper level of the home you will find two graciously bedrooms and an updated bathroom (2014). The lower level is a cool space to make your own! All rooms are complete with neutral paint colors, trendy light fixtures, and hardwood floors. Things of note, that don’t always catch the eye are new windows (2016), interior doors (2015), and insulated garage door (2019) and attic (2014). Additional benefits that come with this home is the convenience to Del Ray for great food/community activities, National Airport to fly you to all adventures, Washington DC to take in the history and numerous walking/biking/running paths to breathe in the fresh air. Welcome home!

Not to be confused with its Southern California cousin, Beverley Hills is a scenic Alexandria neighborhood with rolling hills, nestled in the northern part of Alexandria. Beverley Hills real estate is convenient to many area schools, including the lower-school campus of St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes, George Mason and Charles Barrett Elementary Schools, Alexandria Country Day, and Grace Episcopal. Three preschools are also within walking distance to the neighborhood.
The approximately 600 homes in Beverley Hills are primarily 1930s and 1940s Colonials and Cape Cods. The hallmark of the community is its mature trees, mainly oaks and dogwoods, which are abundant in Beverley Hills thanks to its builder and early residents who recognized the importance of keeping its natural landscape. Few homes in their original footprint are available as most homes have been expanded or converted the small garages into living space.
Families with children love “The Pit,” the neighborhood’s well-known playground. The neighborhood is so friendly that kids and neighbors leave their toys there for everyone to share! A local civic association hosts several community events such as a Santa visit, a Christmas tree sale, and National Night Out. Memorial Day weekend brings “Wheel Day” to Beverley Hills, a parade of bikes and skateboards that wind through the neighborhood.
Residents can stroll to nearby Shirlington for dinner, enjoy happy hour at the many restaurants, or see a show at Signature Theater. The shops and restaurants of Del Ray, the Fairlington Shopping Center, and the Bradlee Centre are also an easy walk. Old Town, the Pentagon and Crystal City are all just five minutes away by car. Commuters will love the ease of access to 395 as well as the Metro and bus services.
