A showcase home, inside and out, just blocks to the Huntington METRO. Beauty and functionality combine to make this home stand out in the popular Jefferson Manor neighborhood. The kitchen is its jewel. A gourmet chef would be thrilled by the state-of-art stainless steel WIFi gas range to access favorite recipes and menu options including remote operation, center burner for pancakes, and true convection bake; a four-door French refrigerator without protruding handles, with a four-zone snack drawer and filtered water pitcher, cubed ice, and crushed ice dispensers; unique quartzite countertops and backsplash, and ample cabinets. Ideal for buffet or baking is the stunning 51" wide quartzite separate counter. Above it is a decorative pendant light and on it a faucet which will obey nearly every command, a built-in soap dispenser, and button to operate the disposal. French doors fully enclose this widely-admired front porch, comfortable for dining or relaxing with friends. Exquisite wood trim, crown molding, pristine hardwood floors, recessed lighting and new baseboard and shoe molding give sophistication to the living room and combined dining-kitchen. Beautiful hardwood floors are also throughout the second floor which has a full bath tiled on all four walls and a Kohler Memoirs pedestal sink and toilet. Pull-down access to the floored and carpeted attic provides storage for those items not needed daily. For use as a third bedroom, recreation room, or office, the first room in the basement/lower level has an Anderson egress casement window with a large dome cover and a natural gas fireplace. The fireplace is not reliant on electricity to function so that heat is always available for both the lower and the ground levels. As well on this level are a half-bath with a large vanity, a laundry area with LG steam clothes washer and GE dryer, and a 2.5’ x 8’ room with electricity and IKEA shelving for storage as well as 2 other storage areas. The water heater and furnace are natural gas-operated.The front flat yard and fully-fenced, flat back yard are easily accessed by a side yard for maintenance and all are meticulously cared for with well established grass, Japanese maples, dogwood, weeping cherry tree, azaleas, hydrangeas, and easy to maintain perennials. Be proud to entertain friends. Relax with family. Grow an organic garden. And the attractive outdoor shed provides storage for tools and yard accessories.This neighborhood has no HOA, but has an association, conscientious and caring, as are many individual neighbors. Very convenient to METRO, bus line, Amtrak station, DCA, Old Town, Ft Belvoir, Amazon 2 HQ, 495, and Rt 1. Shops, restaurants, and county parks all within blocks.
