4BR: 4501 Bee St., Alexandria

Tucked away in a quiet, suburban neighborhood, this white-clapboard split-level is cozy. The roomy living and family rooms have hardwood floors and working fireplaces. There’s a big kitchen with new appliances. Outside, a deck and backyard are perfect for a party or game of kickball. Old Town is about 5 miles away, and downtown D.C. is a 30-minute drive. Public transit options are limited here, so a car is a must. (Listed by owner)
