Walk to Westover Village, the bike path and parks from this renovated, expanded all brick colonial on a lush private lot in the Ashlawn, Swanson, Yorktown school zone.
The all brick addition features vaulted ceilings, built-in bookcases and desk, a wall of closets and a large bathroom with storage, making it ideal as a main level in-law suite or occasional guest room. Open to the dining room, the thoughtfully designed kitchen will inspire those with a newfound interest in cooking and baking. Light cherry cabinets, solid surface countertops and stainless appliances compliment the baking cabinet, tray storage and appliance bar.
Three bedrooms upstairs are served by a renovated bathroom with a large closet just outside. On the lower level. there is a large rec room for the ultimate private office or for media, play or gaming. A big storage area has space for gym equipment or could be finished for a second office. The fresh, bright laundry room has both shelving and closet storage while a second storage closet with built-ins is just outside the room.
Desirable details include Andersen double pane windows throughout, plantation shutters or blinds at windows, a living room fireplace, gleaming wood floors on two levels and ceramic tile floor in the lower level, fresh paint, built-in seating on the deck, and exceptional storage throughout the home.
A door from the mudroom opens to the two-tier deck and the well-landscaped backyard. The deep driveway extends to another part of the deck and a door to the kitchen — making it so convenient to bring groceries and children into the home. The sellers have been considerate of the environment by using Virginia native plants in the yard along with measures to direct water into the planting beds. Following an energy audit of the home, insulation, LED lights and ceiling fans were added to increase the home’s energy efficiency to a Silver Level under the Pearl rating system.
This is a home brimming with character, quality updates, and in pristine move-in condition. Oh, and the yard is spectacular!
