This charming property is located in sought after Ashton Heights and is less than a half mile to the Virginia Square Metro, shops, restaurants, Arlington Arts Center, parks and playgrounds.
This vintage bungalow is a rare find, one that includes original hardwood floors, an inviting front porch where you can relax, a regal fireplace, a lovely trex deck perfect for entertaining, new windows, sun-filled family addition and a cozy sunroom. It is nestled in the middle of an expansive tree-lined corner lot (a quarter acre) on a quiet street. This home and location has it all, urban village amenities and a country like setting.
The four bedroom, three bath classic bungalow has an old fashioned ambiance that is hard to find these days, one that takes you back to a less hectic time. When the current owners renovated, they found a journal page dated May 1930, that listed birds in the yard and said, “I cannot imagine a place being more heaven than my front porch, morning, afternoon, or evening in May.”
The home was formerly owned by the last surviving WWI vet in Arlington, Bernard Allison. Mr. Allison, who lived to 102, mowed the lawn himself until he was over 100. A former neighbor once stopped by to ask if she could have a chaise Mr. Allison had left on the porch, explaining that her mother loved sitting on it and visiting with Mr. Allison. Porch and porch swing convey.
Gourmet refreshments will be served at the open houses this weekend compliments of Potomac Title Group Services.
