This light-filled 5 BD/5.5 BA home with an oversized two-car garage sits on a rare quarter-acre lot in the sought-after Bon Air/Bluemont neighborhood. It has an open main level with a fantastic kitchen flowing into a dining room, breakfast area, and family room as well as a private bedroom and bathroom.

A stone gas fireplace anchors the family room and is flanked by French doors opening to the deck, patio and fenced, level rear yard. You’ll find a coffered ceiling in the family room, a bar with two fridges, plantation shutters, cove ceiling and wainscoting in the dining room give the room a polished look. A big island with a second prep sink and space for the participatory cook at the large breakfast bar, double ovens and gas cooktop will appeal to those with a newfound interest in cooking and baking.

Upstairs, the primary bedroom offers two walk-in closets fitted with organizers and a spa-style bath with a glass shower and deep soaking tub to soothe after runs or bike rides on the nearby W&OD Trail. The second bedroom has an ensuite bathroom while the third and fourth bedrooms share a hall bath with a double-sink vanity. A linen closet and laundry room with a deep sink, folding counter and additional cabinetry complete this level.

The lower level has a mudroom entry to the garage and to the deep level driveway, the site of basketball games and lacrosse practice. A second gas fireplace is in a cozy corner of the rec room, and the remaining space accommodates media, foosball, pool, or ping pong tables and areas for play. With a full bath on this level, the office and gym could be used as a private spot for a guest or for a distance-learning college student. A walk-in closet and separate storage room are bonuses.

This is an exceptional home in an excellent location near Ballston, Westover Village, bike and walking trails and the new Lubber Run Rec Center.
