The house offers two levels of expansive living space, with hardwood floors and two wood-burning fireplaces. At the end of the day, you'll particularly look forward to relaxing in the spacious, new sun-room addition. With four bedrooms (two with en-suites), plus an additional full and 2 more half-baths. You'll love all the storage with built-in closets throughout. Skylights, solar tubes and new windows welcome the sun shining off the freshly painted walls. Other high-end design elements include gorgeous Italian tile, marble flooring and glass block in the recently renovated bathrooms. Three decks connect you to the spectacular woodland scenery (one with Trex decking). The property offers excellent walkability to many stores and community services, while also being conveniently located on the 101 bus line (with service to Huntington Metro). It's also within close walking distance to Mount Vernon Trail, Potomac River, and Hollin Hall Shopping Center. Close to Old Town, Airport, Amtrak and the future headquarters of Amazon. 2800 square foot home on 0.7 acre lot. With historically low interest rates, this wonderfully unique home with good bones is a great find and a solid investment, located in a neighborhood with $1 million+ homes.
