Welcome to this beautiful four-bedroom colonial situated on a half-acre private wooded lot located on George Washington’s original River Farm. Stratford Landing Elementary and Carl Sandburg Middle are under a mile away and the Riverside Gardens Swim & Tennis Club is just around the corner. All walkable from this home in a quiet cul-de-sac.
Enter the front door from a custom slate and brick front porch with an expansive portico, keeping you dry on rainy days. Step into the foyer with wainscoting and onto solid maple floors throughout the main floor. The open kitchen / family room combination is bright with natural light, and the open feel is further enhanced with French doors that flow into the formal living room with Mahogany built-in bookcases. The family room has a gas fireplace. Enjoy the large screened-in porch accessed from the family room and a view of the inviting back yard.
The dining room is conveniently off the kitchen. A central half bath completes the first-floor layout.
Upstairs you will find 4 generous bedrooms. The Master suite includes the master bath and a walk-in closet with Birdseye maple cabinets. Upper level laundry.
The finished basement has abundant bright recessed lights throughout and offers two separate entertainment areas. A set of glass French doors opens to a wide stairway leading into the back yard, the wide stairway covered by a custom clear roof structure. The basement also includes storage areas and roughed-in full bathroom space.
Outside, you will find an area to relax by the firepit and an inviting level yard for outdoor activities. Storage shed conveys.
The 2-car garage has 220V service for car charger or workshop, and a doorway leading into the kitchen for easy grocery transfer. Pull-down stairs to floored attic over the garage.
Just minutes to the picturesque George Washington Memorial Parkway between Mount Vernon and Old Town Alexandria. Enjoy the trails and picnic areas along the Potomac River and in nearby Fort Hunt Park where Fairfax County presents free summer concerts and events.
