It starts with curb appeal, but there is so much to love in this home. Front porch was added in 2014 so that everyone could gather around a full size dining table and have stories carried with the breeze of a summer evening. Stepping indoors, you'll want to kick off your shoes as the living room and all the gleaming wood floors draw you into the heart of the home (more smartly open now that walls are gone). Everyone can enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds simmering in the kitchen with cabinets the color of french vanilla and granite counters to complement. Grab a quick snack at the breakfast bar, or have a sit down in the dining area. Although previous owner enjoyed the keys of a baby grand piano in that space instead. You may most often find everyone gathered around the new gas fireplace in the giant family room addition - with so much sunlight streaming through the plantation shutters, you may want to keep the remote for that fireplace handy and look up from your reading to turn down the heat. Up just a few stairs from the main level, choose from three spacious bedrooms and a stylish new bath that is further brightened by a skylight. If you go down a few stairs instead, the lower level could offer a great Rec Room, but has been enjoyed as an even cooler bedroom option that walks right up to the fenced back yard or across the hall to another lovely tiled bath. And let's just talk about the laundry room and pantry over-flow (to take advantage of nearby Costco maybe). Isn't laundry just less of a chore when you have shelves for everything and even a counter for folding? You are getting the quality construction and thoughtfulness of a mature home with all the beauty and peace of mind of a newer one with so many upgrades 2014-2018. All in the highly sought after quiet community (best buy in actual Waynewood), tucked conveniently right off the scenic GW Parkway on this prime corner lot, with quick access to popular shopping, parks and recreation, and historic Mount Vernon Estate. Take a quick bike ride for a picnic lunch along the Potomac River for fun, or run the trails all the way to the Pentagon. Speaking of the Pentagon, the commute to there and DC by car is just 20 minutes, with Fort Belvoir even closer! Shorter commute means you get to your favorite summer beverage on the back deck sooner, and you can even sleep in longer in the morning when you only have to walk around the corner to school.
