The primary suite is spacious and private w/ a brand new spa-like bath w/glass-enclosed shower, double sinks, a vanity and walk-in closet – so much space to use as you like!
The lower level provides so much flexibility with another bedroom (that’s #6), a lux bath w/heated floors and a steam shower! There’s a fully-equipped second kitchen, a second laundry room, rec room opening to stone patio and backyard (would make a perfect spot for a hot tub!), workshop/storage room w/epoxy floor, attached garage (also w/epoxy floor) and even a built-in potting/storage shed with outdoor access! This level offers so much flexibility for multi-generational living, guest space, fitness, hobbies, additional study/office – buyer’s choice!
There’s a detached 2-car garage w/separate HVAC and upstairs storage just off the custom paver driveway and connected to the backyard. Details, details, details – no stone left unturned in this professionally landscaped oasis w/secluded gardens, play area, fort, outdoor rooms and so much more to discover. Truly, the meticulous owners have thought of everything: whole-house generator, dual-zoned HVAC, extensive stone hardscape w/ dry river beds, retaining walls, walkways and extensive drainage systems (no worries in THIS N. Arlington home), including sump pumps.
The indoor-outdoor flow is adaptable to entertaining or quiet time with family. The flexible floorplan will accommodate multiple lifestyles, and the scrupulously planned updates and upgrades, along with meticulous maintenance, will have this turnkey charmer checking off everything on your wish list!
