Thoughtfully expanded Williamsburg Cape Cod is a landmark in the desirable Tara neighborhood. The first addition of the master bedroom and bathroom was completed in November 1998. Award-winning architect Rob Shutler designed the 2006 addition of the kitchen, breakfast room, screen porch and deck along with the front portico, added in May 2010.

Follow the handsome brick path to covered portico opening to inviting foyer. The traditional living room with woodburning fireplace adjoins a private den with French doors to the rear yard. Ideal for entertaining and daily living, the dining room flows into the kitchen, breakfast room, family room, deck and screen porch. The cook-designed kitchen features crisp white cabinets, marble countertops, stainless appliances – gas cooktop, counter-depth refrigerator and beverage fridge.

A vaulted ceiling in the breakfast room enhances the open airy feel along with built-ins and French doors to the deck. The room flows into the family room with gas fireplace, built in cabinetry, and doors to the delightful screen porch – to while away a relaxing few hours. Sunlight dots the back gardens of the quarter acre level lot.

Also on the main level is a bedroom with recently renovated bathroom, the powder room and entry to the oversized garage with high ceilings for exceptional hanging storage.

Upstairs, the master bedroom offers a seating area, walk in closet, en suite bathroom with large shower, and a stack washer and dryer. Two more bedrooms are on this level and each has deep window niches for a desk or play area. A renovated hall bathroom serves these two bedrooms.

The lower level was renovated in 2017 and includes a rec room with area for media, play, reading, and exercise. A second laundry room is on this level along with a large utility room with space for hobbies, crafts, bike workshop and terrific storage.

McKinley Elementary School, Swanson Middle School and Yorktown High School. Conveniently located between Westover Village’s library, restaurants, and farmer’s market and the larger Lee-Harrison Center, the home is a short walk to three parks, the bike path and an ART bus to Ballston Metro.

A home brimming with character, quality and style in a location you will value each day.

“Probing the highly imaginative, inspired mind of Teresa Oaxaca is not altogether unlike having a present-day conversation with an Old Master,” says Nashville Arts Magazine.

Here is an unusual opportunity to learn from this incredibly talented and accessible artist, at Art House 7’s two-day oil painting workshop in October. Teresa will give 2 portrait painting demonstrations for 3 hours each morning. Students will then be painting from a clothed live model. Teresa will offer individual critiques that focus on materials, techniques, process and artistic vision. You’ll get jazzed up about painting and become more confident about your abilities.

Validating one’s emotions has the power to heal, transform, and empower. What Is Validation? Every human being has feelings. We all have emotions that change over time, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. The question isn’t whether we feel; it’s how we handle feelings once they arise.

Building strategies to understand emotions is essential to positive mental health, and validation is one effective skill to practice.

Emotional validation is the process of understanding, embracing, and actively listening to another person’s feelings (or your own).

Understanding someone’s emotions doesn’t necessarily mean you approve of how they are feeling or reacting to something. You can be supportive in acknowledging and validating an emotional experience without agreeing or diminishing it. Validation is a skill to learn and improve over time. It may take practice, but the effort is most certainly worth it. Emotional validation has the power to enhance interpersonal communication and foster strong relationships.
