This classic 1940s colonial is in an ideal spot — close to Westover Village, the bike trail to Ballston and on to D.C. The home has been buffed and polished for the market with fresh paint, a groomed yard and thoughtful updates. The kitchen was opened up to the dining room and renovated in 2015 with creamy white cabinets, granite tops and stainless appliances. A year later, the basement bathroom was renovated, and the powder room has just been redone.

Whether working from home, engaging in hybrid or distance learning, or commuting occasionally to work, this home offers space for today’s needs. The living room with wood-burning fireplace adjoins the family room with windows on three sides — a sunny space for office or school work. A door from the kitchen opens to the patio-level deck and the private fenced rear yard. Wood floors continue from the living room and dining room to the bedroom level.

Upstairs, three large bedrooms share an updated bathroom, and there are fixed stairs to the attic for abundant storage. A second decorative fireplace in the rec room anchors the room, and a window seat with storage below is a sweet touch. With a full bathroom,  wet bar and beverage fridge on this level, the rec room doubles as private space for a guest. A door from the nicely finished laundry and storage area opens to the backyard, making it convenient to enter the home after playing or gardening. Entry from the one-car garage is also on this level.

Enjoy proximity to Westover Village’s library, retro shops, carry-out friendly restaurants, library, post office, beer garden and Sunday’s farmers market. Lacey Woods Park and Westover Park provide playing fields, basketball courts, a playground, picnic areas and room to roam. The home is in the McKinley, Swanson, Washington-Liberty school zone.
