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.
