Alexandria Teacher Runs Miles To Visit Students

A teacher in Alexandria is going the extra mile to see her students during the closure of school during COVID-19. Alexandria County Day School teacher and one of ACDC’s Cross Country coaches Sarah Shannon ran for 20 miles to say hello to each of her student while maintaining social distancing. The marathon runner mapped out her students’ address as she set out to put a smile on the faces of her students. The students were extremely happy to see their teacher.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the closure of schools in Alexandria and in the state of Virginia.

302 E Del Ray Ave

302 E Del Ray Ave is one block from the neighborhood's main street, Mount Vernon Avenue, making it the quintessential location in Del Ray, Alexandria. Leave your car at home and walk to a humming local community, with restaurants like Cheesetique or Holy Cow Gourmet Burgers, and boutiques such as Top Shop. Never arrive late to early morning yoga again - Mind the Mat is a less than 5 minute walk from your door! Pick up fresh produce and pastries at the Farmers Market every Saturday morning on "The Avenue." Prefer to bike? Nearby trails will let you explore Alexandria at a different pace. This home is within walking distance to Braddock Rd Metro Station, for a seamless commute into DC. Mount Vernon Elementary and George Washington Middle Schools are a 7 minute and 15 minute walk, respectively. The freshly painted creamy white brick exterior complements the subtle brown roof, and the cozy front porch provides a lovely open space for a small table and chairs, whether you're enjoying a cup of hot coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. The living room allows guests to take off their coats and be instantly welcomed into your home. The newly refinished hardwoods gleam throughout, and the living and dining spaces flow pleasantly, a distinct separation of rooms without dividing the floor plan entirely. A contemporary light fixture in the dining room matches the one in the living area, and the chair rails line the walls to create a more formal atmosphere. A little bonus comes in the alcove in the dining room, with windows that simulate a sunroom - just big enough for a small table and chair to create a reading nook with an abundance of natural light. The casual breakfast area connects the dining room to the kitchen, and adds a bit of flair with its 1920s-style light fixture. Completely renovated last year, the kitchen features sparkling granite countertops, stainless steel Samsung appliances, and lots of storage space behind smooth, white cabinet doors. Access to the backyard provides an easy shortcut to the detached garage and driveway, convenient for carrying in groceries. The laundry room is off the kitchen, tucked away with the water heater and plenty of additional storage. The primary bedroom sits separate from the others, off the living area, for a bit of privacy. The two remaining bedrooms are off the hall from the dining room, and are adjacent to the full bath, with granite counters and subway tile lining the tub shower. In that hallway, there is access to the pull-down attic and large storage closet. The glass door knobs throughout the interior of the home provide a delicate touch. All window treatments were installed last year, and are stringless - raise or lower at the touch of a button. The hot water heater, HVAC system and ductwork, plumbing and electrical panel are all new as of 2019. 302 E Del Ray has a spacious yard, with room for expansion of the home or additions to the exterior living structures. The extra long asphalt driveway at the side of the house could accommodate several cars, or be cleared for a home basketball game! The detached, one-car garage sits at the end of the driveway, with storage space for bikes, outdoor tools, or games. [Del Ray - $925,000]
