This Glencarlyn Darlin’ is nestled in the heart of a neighborhood “Preservation Arlington” will surely remember.
Glencarlyn is the site of the oldest home in Arlington, the Ball-Sellers House, as well as may structures from the Victorian era. The Glencarlyn Park was once the destination for Washington dwellers to escape city heat and humidity. Remnants of a dance pavilion from that time remain in the park.
Today, the neighborhood is filled with charming homes, such as this Cape Cod at 5627 5th Street S. An open house for the home will be held on Sunday, Nov. 16 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
The main level offers a living room with fireplace, separate dining room and an updated kitchen with ample white cabinets and appliances as well as granite countertops. A main level den is the perfect spot for a home office or relaxing.
Upstairs there are two large bedrooms, and a walk-in closet off the master bedroom. The lower level has been remodeled with new windows, paint, carpeting and a half bathroom.
An outdoor room has been created with a patio covered by a pergola and screened with plantings. It is the perfect spot for entertaining nearly year round.
Recent updates include air conditioning, hot water heater and double pane windows.
An inviting home in a historic location, listed at $585,000. Additional details about 5627 5th Street S. are available on betsytwigg.com.
