Property Description

This home is New York sophistication meets comfortable southern style! Just 14 years young, this large family home was built to welcome and impress. Gracious two story entry foyer with dramatic chandelier greets you and your guests. Photo-ready for everything from family reunion to prom photos, this staircase is the perfect entry to this almost 5,400 square foot home. Intricate crown, chair rail and casing moldings abound. Flanking the entry is a spacious office and living room. The office has sight lines to the front yard so you can receive colleagues, deliveries and guests alike. The large formal living room gives way to a light filled dining room fit for formal entertaining and large family gatherings. Family living space include a chefs kitchen with high end stainless appliances, cooktop with downdraft, double ovens and a built in refrigerator. As the heart of the home, the kitchen overlooks the adjacent family room with gas fireplace and breakfast area with access to the backyard. The dream mud room is prefect to contain daily messes, while the adjacent dare-to-dream laundry has enough space to meet all of your laundry needs. Upstairs, you will find 4 gracious bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Opulent master suite has it's own gas fireplace, separate sitting room and to-die-for walk-in closet with built-ins and an island. Your closet even has a closet for shoes and purses! Don't miss the grand master bathroom with soaking tub, dual sinks and "car-wash" shower with body sprayers and separate shower wand. Second bedroom, fit for a prince or a princess, has en-suite bathroom and a walk-in closet. Downstairs, you will find a massive recreation room with two TV viewing areas (okay... you can have the pool tables and TV's too!). 5th large bedroom and adjacent full bathroom...plus storage...with built in shelves! High ceilings, fresh paint, refinished wide-plank hardwood flooring and new carpet will allow you to move in and put your mark on this home without busting your budget. Outside, you will find a low maintenance exterior with cement board siding, and a manageable yard that takes less than 20 (I promise..) minutes to mow, but has a sunny strip for a home garden and privacy for entertaining on the giant deck. The joy of this location is that there is plenty of room to play on this private cul de sac and the adjacent Stratford Landing school grounds with tennis courts and a to lot. It's like having a 16 acre estate without having to maintain it! Recently renovated, Stratford Landing Elementary is a stones throw away and the home of the advanced academic placement program for the nationally ranked West Potomac High School pyramid. 7 miles from the Huntington Metro and Old Town. 12 miles to Amazon's HQ2, and just minutes to 495, 295 and points north and south. Minutes from everything but miles from the ordinary, Fort Hunt is an enclave of single family homes adjacent to historic Mount Vernon, Fort Hunt Park and the Potomac River. You will find some of the most competitive youth athletic teams in the region amongst some of the friendliest people. Do not miss your opportunity to own this one of a kind residence in the heart of our Mayberry!
