UNDER CONTRACT. SUNDAY OPEN HOUSE CANCELLED. Yes, you can have it both ways! Enjoy the urban convenience of Arlington living while nestled in a serene setting that backs to over 24 acres of park land in this stunning 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom, updated Cape Cod. Located in the Brockwood neighborhood, this home was thoughtfully renovated in 2016 and 2018 to combine its original charm with the style and features which homeowners expect today.
With incredible curb appeal, you’ll immediately notice the classic flagstone walkway and stairs leading to the oversized portico that protects the front entrance. From there, you’ll step into the open, spacious and bright main level that has been tastefully reimagined to suit today’s living and working needs. The placement and addition of windows provides ample natural light throughout the home but are especially noticeable on this level. The gleaming hardwood floors as well as the extensive woodwork and trim provide timeless and sophisticated detail throughout the home. The bright, updated kitchen provides generous solid-wood cabinetry and built-in pantries as well as granite and new appliances (2016). The bonus countertop coffee bar area can also double as a charging station or central command center for the home. The main level also includes a bedroom that doubles as an office and a playroom. There is also an updated full bath on the main level.
The stylish upper-level was reimagined in 2018 to create 3 bedrooms and an expansive, luxury bathroom with timeless subway tile, Moroccan floor tile and marble finishes. The primary bedroom includes custom built-in closets as well as a dressing area.
The fully-finished lower level is a great use of space that provides a large family room/den, an exercise space as well as a separate storage room. There is also a full-bathroom and a large bedroom (#5) with a separate entrance which makes a great guest or in-law suite. The spacious laundry room also includes additional storage.
The fully-fenced backyard is beautifully hard-scaped. It is professionally landscaped with mature, seasonal plantings that make the yard a peaceful oasis and a great place to entertain, play or dine. A bonus back-gate opens to a trail connecting directly to the walking paths of Bon Air Park for easy access and private enjoyment of one of Arlington’s best parks.
The 2016 renovation included all new windows, Hardie Board siding, and hardwood refinishing. In 2018 repainted entire upper level, added, new lighting and smoke alarm system, refinished upstairs hardwoods.
The home is convenient to the rose gardens and tennis courts of Bon Air Park, the trails and fields of Bluemont Park, easy access to the Custis Trail and the WO&D Trail. Close to Westover, Wilson Blvd and Ballston Quarter retail and dining (including Pupatella Pizza). The home also has convenient access to East Falls Church and Ballston Metro stations.
