We look to Arlington’s shrinking supply of 1930s houses for the Listing of the Day, and this Waverly Hills Cape Cod does not disappoint.
The owners thoughtfully updated it with new roof, recent HVAC, water heater and electric panel box while retaining its intrinsic character. A wood burning fireplace is the focal point of the living room while the dining room flows into to the kitchen and sunroom — ideal for entertaining and daily living.
The top floor is given over to a master suite with double closets, seating area, and a renovated bathroom. Heart pine floors and a dormered ceiling enhance the appeal. Two bedrooms on the man level of the home share an updated bathroom. Recently finished, the expansive lower level rec room has recessed lighting, slate floor and accommodates areas for play, exercise, media, and hobbies.
A door from the rec room opens to backyard, making it convenient to enter the home for cleanups in the new half bath after gardening, play, and sports. Also on this level is the laundry area, storage room, and utility room with even more storage.
Walk to neighborhood park and Lee Heights Shops for restaurants, services, Starbucks, patisserie, and wine store. Take the ART bus to Ballston Metro or the Metro bus from nearby Lee Highway directly to downtown Washington. Easy commute to D.C., Rosslyn-Ballston business corridor, Crystal City, airport, Fort Myer, and Foreign Service Institute. Perfectly poised near Old Dominion Drive for the reverse commute to Tysons.
Schools are Glebe Elementary, Swanson Middle School, and Washington-Lee High School.
A home brimming with style, updates and vintage details in a location you will appreciate.
