IT'S EVERYTHING YOU WANT IN A HOUSE. Tucked away on a quiet street in one of Arlington's most sought after neighborhoods, this five-bedroom, three and a half bath tasteful home will meet your every need. The covered front porch lends to the home's tremendous curb appeal and is ready for you to settle down and unwind with your favorite beverage in hand.
This home creates the perfect blend of classic (the original house was built in 1926) and contemporary. Time-honored touches such as hardwood floors, dentil molding, and custom built-ins provide an old feel to the original portion of the home, which encompasses a living room, two large bedrooms, and a full bath on the home's first floor. The owner's masterfully added a huge open concept dining room/kitchen, which opens to a charming, private patio (spoiler: not only are there fairy lights out here, but there's even a picket fence!). You'll love the huge gourmet kitchen with endless granite counters, quality cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and designer pendant lighting over the Peninsula. Your family and friends will love sitting at the Peninsula to keep you company while you cook. And who knows? They may even offer to pitch in! And best of all, the skylight above bathes the kitchen in wonderful natural light.
On the floor's second level are two spacious bedrooms and a full bath in addition to the drool-worthy Master En-Suite. There's plenty of room for your king-sized bed and even enough space for a sitting area - a couch, two comfortable armchairs - you pick! It's a beautiful spot for cozy Netflix binge-watching or reading your favorite book before bed. Perhaps the icing on the cake, though, are the two enormous walk-in closets with enough space to store all of your out of season clothes. The spa-like Master Bath offers the ultimate luxurious experience with its deep jacuzzi tub. A glass-enclosed shower is ready for days when you don't have time for a soak, and double vanity and water closet complete this area.
With its unique layout, this home was artfully designed for the best of everyday living. There is an attached two-car garage with access to the kitchen, making unloading a car full of groceries a breeze! The large open concept dining area/kitchen will be the perfect space for family meals, homework, and girls' nights. With its five bedrooms, there is enough space for everyone to spread out, and depending on the size of your family, you might want to use one of the rooms as a home office.
As for location, there is a reason that Bluemont is one of Arlington's most coveted neighborhoods. The neighborhood elementary school is an easy walk away, and the top-ranked middle and high schools are equally convenient. Multiple bike trails, parks, the stunning Bluemont Rose Garden, tennis courts, and even a private neighborhood pool are steps away. You'll be within walking distance to Pupatella (a VERY popular Italian restaurant), the newly redeveloped Ballston Quarter (with excellent shopping and dining), and the Ballston Metro Station. Arteries leading to DC, Tysons, and Crystal City offer an easy commute.
What are you waiting for? Snatch this one up for your holiday celebrations!
