OPEN 3/28, 1-3PM! Welcome to 809 Rivergate place in Charming Old Town, Alexandria! This completely renovated Snowden Model -- down to studs -- is one of four units with stellar River views and is the only home in Rivergate with extensive interior redesign from builder's original floorplan to achieve living space optimization. The list price of this unique townhome is higher than recent sales prices of other unchanged Snowden models, reflecting over $400K in remodeling costs. Rarely available, this spectacular 4-Level, 3-Bedroom + Bonus Room, 3.5-Bath luxury townhome, located in a private Old Town Waterfront community, is one of only four residences with similar square footage that has unobstructed waterfront views! The property underwent an extensive custom renovation (down to the studs) in 2004, which included a detailed architectural redesign of virtually every room in the property. All electrical and plumbing systems were completely revamped. Dry wall was replaced and filled with double sound resistant insulation. The project created a dramatic main-level living space with 9-foot ceilings, which boasts a modern open floorplan, an expansive living room, an open-style luxury kitchen with a custom-designed island, and an elegant formal dining room with the capacity to seat private large parties. From any of these vantage points, stunning river views can be observed through a river-facing wall of Georgian Palladian Windows. An attractive rear brick patio, is accessible from the kitchen for grilling and outside activities. ALL IS PERFECT FOR EVERYDAY LIVING AND ENTERTAINING! In addition, replacement hardwood floors grace each level of the property. The spectacular primary bedroom suite was tastefully updated; and boasts vaulted ceilings, a separate sitting space, and walls of windows and river views. Two remaining upper-level bedrooms (bedrooms #2 & #3) were reconfigured; the bonus room on the lower-level was also completely redesigned. The lower-level bonus has an adjoining bath, and is large enough that this space could also be used as a recreation room if desired. All interior marble baths have been renovated. All exterior doors and windows were replaced in 2017. The roof was replaced in 2016. A Sunair auto-retractable patio awning was installed in 2017. The new garage door was installed 2018. Interior recessed lighting was added in 2017. A property sound system was also installed. The wireless security system was first updated in 2017, and then upgraded again to 5G technology in 2021. The attention to detail given to the residence is truly amazing. Fabulously located - parks, walking paths, restaurants, stores, and more - only steps away. The property is exceptional, unlike any other luxury residence which has come to market on the Old Town Waterfront.
