Bright and cheery colonial with five bedrooms, three and a half baths on large lot in one of the best locations in Northern Virginia! When Van Morrison sings about the Bright Side of the Road, this is the place he’s talking about. (Yes. This. Very. House!) There’s so much natural light in this place, we’re having to reshoot some of the kitchen photos. We’re not kidding! The design of this space has a fantastic “flow” to it – moving from room to room feels effortless. The house has been lovingly cared for and the owners have made TONS of fantastic improvements. Here’s a “shortlist” of some of the work they’ve done in the past couple of years: Replaced the roof & gutters (2018), replaced the windows, (2018), renovated the basement bath (2022), painted the interior (2021/ 2022), see the full list of renovations in document section. Fair warning here – if you’re the handy type, you’re gonna be bored. Good news, however, you can set up shop in the large garage and… build yourself a canoe, or something. We’ll leave plans, if that helps you feel better. Whoever said that the first three principles of real estate are “location, location, location” had this home in mind! It’s convenient to… Everything! A two minute drive to Algonkian Parkway. Four minutes to Great Falls Plaza shopping center, 15 minutes to Dulles Airport, 25 minutes to Tysons Corner Center and 45 minutes to downtown Washington, DC. And yet, the home feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A three minute walk (see video in link above) to dozens of walking trails in Algonkian Regional Park. And just two miles to the park’s main entrance, with over 860 acres of natural area, a public golf course, Volcano Island Waterpark, dozens of miles of walking trails, boat access to the Potomac River, picnic pavilions, fishing, etc. The house is also two miles from the Potomac Lakes Sportsplex with four baseball diamonds, six soccer fields and a huge playground. A short drive to Seneca Regional Park. WHEW we’re getting tired just thinking about all of the outdoor recreation opportunities! Come and see for yourself!
