Well loved and cared for by the same family for 52 years, this expanded Arlington colonial is brimming with updates and desirable details.

Recent roof, HVAC, gas water heater, Trex deck, front portico and walkway plus extensive built-ins and a laundry and craft room with extensive cabinets and work surfaces.

The addition begins with a two car garage with space for sports and gardening equipment plus another storage area that could be a gym, workshop, or hobby area.  Above is a family room, featuring a bay window, gleaming wood floors, large closet and a separate pantry for the vacuum and cleaning supplies. The family room flows into the breakfast area with doors to the screen porch with vaulted ceiling and treed views. A door opens to the deck with grilling and dining areas, and steps to the lushly landscaped yard.

Follow the stone path through the portico to an inviting foyer open to traditional living and dining rooms. Built-in bookcases and cabinets are the focal point of the living room, and the dining room accommodates a cupboard or serving piece. Upstairs, the primary bedroom has a wall of built in cabinets and drawers along with several fitted closets. The second bedroom has shutters at the windows and a double hung closet. Now used as an office, the third bedroom is an ideal nursery or whimsical children’s room. A renovated hall bathroom serves the three bedrooms.

Downstairs, the private fourth bedroom is ideal for an in-law, au pair, or pampered guest. The second updated bathroom is on this level along with that fabulous laundry and craft room. The home is near the bike bath and walking trail, Madison Manor and Benjamin Banneker Parks, and Westover Village’s shops, restaurants, library, and Sunday farmer’s market. Cardinal Elementary School, Swanson Middle School and Yorktown High School.

This home awaits the stewardship of the next fortunate buyers to make it their own.

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3­-7.

Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.

Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.

Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
