BEST LOCATION IN FAIRLINGTON MEADOWS! This Colonial-style end-unit two bedrooms, two bath, three- level townhome is tucked away in a lovely park-like quiet and secluded setting in Fairlington Meadows - an historic picturesque community that even Norman Rockwell could not have dreamed up! With its all-brick construction, slate roofs, expansive green spaces, and mature trees, this is one of the DMV’s most unique and sought-after neighborhoods.
Completely move-in-ready with upgrades throughout, this home features classic touches such as hardwood floors, custom Charleston Shutters, crown molding, chair rail molding and on-trend freshly painted rooms. The light-filled first level of the home is open concept with the living room, dining room and kitchen seamlessly flowing together with walls of windows overlooking the green space, private swimming pool, tennis courts, pickleball courts, and children’s playground. Thanks to the genius design of the updated kitchen, the breakthrough island divides your dining room and kitchen so your family and friends can thoroughly enjoy dining without the sight of piled up dishes. Instead, you will be able to enjoy the view of your kitchen’s designer touches - including recessed lights, granite counters, and newly painted cabinets.
The second level features a sizable primary bedroom with enough room for your bed and several dressers. With two separate closets, there will be more than enough space for every season’s clothes! The ample second bedroom features a large closet and ceiling fan. The bright and spacious full bath is accented with stylish lighting and a contemporary vanity and sink. You will be delighted with the large, floored attic offering enormous storage space.
The upgraded and updated lower level has exceedingly rare, raised ceilings creating a bright and open feel. The substantial recreation room with built-in hardwood shelves and cabinet will be ideal for game nights, movie watching or entertaining. A private room leading off the recreation room can be used as a bedroom, work-from-home office, or home gym. The added convenience of a second full bath makes this an ideal space for everyday living.
The icing on the cake is the private, fully fenced in courtyard with updated stamped concrete patio, and gorgeous landscaping - including a dogwood tree and Japanese Maple. Open the gate and you will be steps away from the pool, tennis and pickleball courts as well as walking paths winding throughout the 322 acres of your community.
