Welcome to 6801 Duke Drive, where comfort meets convenience! This charming single-family home boasts a plethora of upgrades and renovations, ensuring a move-in ready experience for its lucky new owners. Situated on a large .31 acre lot in the sought-after Bucknell Manor neighborhood, this single family home offers the rare opportunity of assuming a VA loan at an enviable rate of 2.75% with a remaining balance of $537K. ***** Spread across 1,080 square feet of meticulously crafted space, this home features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms as per tax records. However, a clever conversion has transformed the upstairs layout, combining two separate bedrooms into one spacious primary suite, perfect for relaxation and rejuvenation. ***** No stone has been left unturned with over $230,000 in comprehensive renovations delivering all the modern luxuries homebuyers seek. Recent upgrades include a new roof (March 2021), new siding, doors, windows, and gutters (September 2022), as well as the removal of popcorn ceilings and the beautiful renovations of both bathrooms in December 2021. Rich hardwood flooring throughout, a soft neutral color palette, and upgraded lighting including recessed lighting create instant appeal. A main level bedroom and a renovated full bath with spa toned tile, custom sink, and an LED lighted mirror adds convenience. ***** The heart of the home, the kitchen, received a stylish makeover in July 2022, with custom pristine white 42” shaker style cabinetry, gleaming quartz countertops, and new stainless steel appliances including a KitchenAid gas range and built-in microwave. The exterior was transformed with a huge, fenced yard, new landscaping, and lush grass in August and November 2023. The backyard concrete patio is ideal for outdoor relaxation, and an oversized concrete driveway adds convenient private parking. ***** Upstairs, the primary suite is your own private oasis boasting an amazing sitting/dressing room with custom built-ins that provide loads of storage space, while chic lighting and a skylight provide the perfect balance of illumination and ambiance. The primary bath has been renovated to perfection with a quartz topped vanity, sleek lighting including an LED lighted mirror, and a frameless glass enclosed shower with designer marble style tile. ***** The seller has thoughtfully enhanced the living experience by relocating the washer and dryer upstairs, updating the electrical system, and installing a tankless hot water heater and air scrubber for maximum efficiency and comfort. Additional improvements such as crawl space encapsulation (September 2022), and thoughtful adjustments to enhance usability demonstrate the seller's dedication to quality living. ***** Commuters will appreciate the close proximity to I-495, GW Parkway, Metro, Route 1, and other major routes, plus the convenience of a nearby bus route to the Pentagon. Boutiques, cafés, and nightlife await at the Old Town Waterfront district and Belle View Shopping Center puts all the daily necessities right at your fingertips. Outdoor enthusiasts will love Dyke Marsh Wildlife Preserve boasting 485 acres of freshwater tidal wetlands along the Potomac River where you can also enjoy boating, fishing, and leisure activities. With its stellar location and all upgrades completed, this home offers an effortless lifestyle with nothing left for buyers to do except move in and enjoy!
