A bit of character and a bit of vintage distinguish this 1940s Cape Cod just blocks from the bike path to the vibrant Ballston community.
Enter into a comfy living room with gas fireplace, built-ins and wood floors that extend through the main and upper levels. This room flows into the kitchen, offering desk space, pantry, washer and dryer. The kitchen features crisp white cabinets and appliances and is open to the dining room. Tucked at one of the dining room is a spot for reading, catching up on emails, or chatting with the sociable cook. Sliding glass doors open to a big deck and flat, fenced yard with a handy garden shed. Two bedrooms and an updated bathroom are on this level.
Upstairs, the primary bedroom has a niche for another home office or for additional closet space. This bedroom and the second large bedroom are served by an updated hall bathroom. The lower level rec room has good ceiling height and is brightened by multiple windows and recessed lighting. One wall is given over to built in shelving and cabinets — ideal for stowing toys, games, books and exercise gear. A powder room is on this level and there is space to add a shower.
Adjoining the rec room is a large storage and utility room with space for workouts, hobbies and crafts. The home has been updated with double pane windows, recent HVAC, water heater and fresh paint.
Ideal location near the retro shops and restaurants along Wilson Boulevard and easy access to the Ballston Metro, Washington, D.C., Rosslyn-Ballston business corridor, Pentagon, Airport, Pentagon and Crystal Cities at National Landing, Fort Myer/Henderson Hall and Foreign Service Institute.
On the Fourth of July, neighborhood residents gather at Constitution Garden Park at high noon to ring Arlington’s freedom bell — a cherished tradition.
