Property Description

OFFERS REQUESTED BY MONDAY 4/12 @ 12 pm......RENOVATED & EXPANDED 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom Colonial in North Arlington, both inside and out, while still maintaining its original charm! Can you say “BACKYARD ENVY”! Thoughtfully renovated home, nestled in Lacey Forest, just a short distance to Westover shops & park. A tailored exterior, paved driveway, portico entrance, custom deck, and vibrant landscaping are just some of the fine features that make this home so memorable. Hardwood flooring welcomes you home and invites you into the bright and spacious living room that features a wood-burning fireplace serving as the focal point of the room. An open half wall introduces the adjoining dining room with space for all occasions and a burnished bronze chandelier adding tailored distinction. The spectacular gourmet kitchen will please the sophisticated chef with gleaming granite countertops, 42” cherry cabinetry, designer backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and a tiered center island with gas cooktop overlooking the great room addition! Perfect flow and sight lines when hosting guests of any age! Unbeatable views from the great room are afforded by the glass French doors leading to the rear deck overlooking a backyard that has to be seen to be believed! 10,000 square foot lot, with mature plantings and professionally landscaped- perfect for relaxing regardless of the season! Plenty of room to play any game or sport, plus room for a pool! Finishing off the main level is a front/side mud room addition entry with added powder room and secondary pantry room. Upstairs, the gracious owner's suite boasts a cathedral ceiling, room for a sitting area, and walk-in closet/dressing room. The private bath is highlighted by a custom built vanity with extensive cabinetry and rectangular sinks, sumptuous jetted tub, glass-enclosed ultra shower, and spa-toned flooring and surround—the finest in personal pampering. Down the hall, three additional bright and cheerful bedrooms, each with hardwoods and chic lighting, enjoy easy access to the beautifully appointed hall bath. The lower level recreation room offers space for media and relaxation, as a laundry center with modern machines and a full bath with a vessel sink vanity complete the comfort and luxury of this wonderful home. Hardwood flooring, on trend paint, recessed lighting, custom moldings, and designer finishes create a distinctive interior, while the abundance of windows provide a seamless transition to the outdoors. All this can be found in a peaceful setting that is super convenient to I-66, Wilson Boulevard, N. George Mason Drive, and the Metro, while outdoor enthusiasts can take advantage of nearby Four Mile Run and the W&OD Trail. Plenty of diverse shopping, dining, and entertainment choices are available throughout the area and if historical, cultural, or nightlife pursuits are what you seek, all that and more is available. Other features include: alarm system, plantation blinds, pantry room with second refrigerator. School Pyramid: McKinley at Reed ES; Swanson MS; Washington-Liberty HS. Some people name their boats, I’ve named this listing: “Backyard Envy”!
