Walk to Westover Village from this expanded, renovated 1940s custom colonial on a beautifully landscaped, private lot in the Wynnewood neighborhood. A three-level expansion in 2011 added a main-level family room, primary bedroom and bath, and large storage room in the basement with space for gym equipment. The Overlee Swim Club membership can transfer to the new owners.
In 2019, the primary bathroom, upstairs hall bathroom and powder room were tastefully remodeled and, in 2020, the kitchen was renovated. It features Brighton wood cabinets with silent close doors and drawers, quartz countertops, a JennAir gas range, a KitchenAid dishwasher, a GE cafe refrigerator with an interior water filter and dispenser, and a butler’s pantry with lighted display cabinets and beverage fridge. Thoughtful details include electrical outlets concealed below cabinets, task lighting, a tech drawer, a deep farm sink and a prep sink. A built-in window seat overlooking the yard completes this stunning room.
The adjoining family room has built-in bookcases, a walk-in bay window and a mudroom opening to the expansive patio and backyard. Built-ins are also found in the main-level office, just off the living. A gas fireplace is the focal point of the living room, which accommodates a piano and several seating areas. The gathering size dining room flows into the kitchen, a boon for entertaining and daily living.
Upstairs, the primary bedroom has a sitting area, walk-in bay window and a fitted walk-in closet. The bathroom offers an oversized shower, large double vanity, linen closet and separate toilet area. Built-in drawers, a reading niche and a cedar-lined closet highlight the second bedroom while the third bedroom has a Harry Potter-inspired reading nook along with built-in drawers and shelves. These bedrooms share the renovated hall bath, complete with a skylight.
The lower level rec room has a wall of built-in bookcases, private bath and is used as guest space. A laundry room and utility room are also on this level. The wide garage easily accommodates a large auto and opens to the storage room for bikes, yard, gardening and storage.
Children walk to Swanson Middle School and the soon-to-be open Cardinal Elementary School, next to the Westover Library. Older students are zoned to Yorktown High School.
Westover Village offers shops, carry-out friendly restaurants, Arlington Library, post office, services, Sunday farmers market and the beer garden. The home is near three parks and the bike path, too.
