Please wear masks & gloves when visiting. Both will be provided in the foyer, if you need them. Comfortable and stylish, this spacious house has been throughfully renovated. The brick exterior of this traditional home belies the care taken by the owners to provide an unparalleled oasis, close to everything happening in the Washington Metropolitan Area. The first thing you notice is the sturdiness of the front doors. All of the external doors, including the French doors to the backyard and patio, are custom made in Europe to present a traditional look, but have a multiple deadlock mechanism for security. Moving from the slate foyer to the main floor you see the living room with its vaulted ceiling, fireplace and gas log, and here you might notice the windows. What look like traditional windows from the outside are actually custom high-end European windows that swing open from the side or tilt open from the top. Of course, the windows have dead bolt locks from several sides like the exterior doors. The kitchen is open to the dining room, and each have double French doors to a generous quartzo gray paver patio. The vaulted ceilings continue from the dining room through to the kitchen, which has a skylight, SS appliances (including a 5-burner cooktop) a central island, custom cabinets, and granite countertops. A large pantry provides additional storage for countertop appliances and those large quantity food purchases. Moving on to the main floor sleeping wing, there are three large bedrooms and two totally renovated baths, each with a double sink, large showers, and even a heated towel rack in the master bath. The master bedroom also has the double French doors that lead out to the back yard and the pavers path to the patio. The lower level has a wonderful family room/rec room, with wood-burning fireplace, custom built-in cabinets and shelving, and a large flat-screen TV that can convey with the house. The entire lower level has a neutral color carpet. Additionally, on this level, there are two generously sized bedrooms (yes, both legal with egress) and a renovated full bath with a double sink, whirlpool tub, and a large tile shower. Finally, there?s an oversized 2-car garage with lots of room for cars and storage. All this in a neighborhood that is surrounded by 100+ acres of parkland, just a block from an entrance to the Potomac Overlook Regional park https://www.novaparks.com/parks/potomac-overlook-regional-park, with its nature center, hiking trails, and educational gardens, plus other parks that provide access to the Potomac River and the Heritage Hiking Trail. And, if you want convenient access to the rest of the Washington Metropolitan Area, you?re about 15 minutes from the White House or Kennedy Center, National Landing with the new Amazon building, Tyson?s Corner, the Rosslyn-Clarendon-Ballston corridor, Reagan National Airport, and a host of entertainment and shopping possibilities. This property has it all at a value price. Check out the pictures and 3D representation, then schedule a visit. It will be worth your while.
