This rarely available Mount Vernon Model provides 1860 square feet of living space – making it one of the largest units available in Fairlington. Parking is plentiful on this secluded tree-lined cul-de-sac. Access the property by walking through a beautiful, green, professionally landscaped courtyard.
The property itself is spacious, beautifully renovated and has been meticulously maintained by the current owners. All new hardwood floors were added through the main level and stairs during a 2016 renovation. The TOTAL kitchen renovation was done in a way that perfectly blends the need for function and the want for style. The entire floor plan was reconfigured, walls removed, a peninsula placed perfectly to create the ideal open concept and maximum square footage. The kitchen is open to the lovely dining room which walks out to a balcony where you sit right in the middle of the tree canopy. The dining room leads to a bright, spacious living room with views of the courtyard.
The main level also includes a spacious master bedroom with over-sized windows and 3 large closets for storage. There is another large bedroom with 2 additional closets. Lastly – there is a beautifully renovated hall bath.
The fully finished basement has a large carpeted family room with plenty of space for L-shaped sofas, relaxing and movie nights. Down the hall is the perfect home office with a window or guest room and large full bathroom. In addition, this Mount Vernon model has a huge laundry room with an incredible amount of storage. Additional storage is also available under the stairs.
The exterior of this property is just as wonderful as the interior. Enjoy the wonderful, tree-filled view out the back windows and peaceful green oasis all around. Just a short distance to the pool, multiple tennis courts, and half-basketball court, including adjustable basketball court for young children.
The location can’t be beaten. Abingdon Elementary School is just .5 miles away and Claremont Elementary School (Spanish immersion) is .9miles from the property. Enjoy the brand new town center coming to the corner of King and Beauregard/Walter Reed in 2020, including a Harris Teeter, access to the Bradlee Shopping Center as well as Shirlington Village – leaving you with endless restaurant and retail options. If you seek the outdoors there is easy access to bike path connected to Four Mile Run and WO&D trail.
Fairlington is the ideal DC Metro location. It’s approximately 5 miles to Washington, DC and Reagan National Airport and 4 miles to The Pentagon metro station. This community is known for the rows of red brick townhomes and apartments with slate roofs and tree-lined streets with plenty of green space. Fairlington was built on 340 acres, just 5 miles from DC, for defense workers in response to the DC housing shortage after WWII. Fairlington is listed in the Virginia Landmarks Register as well as the National Register of Historic Places.
Arlington is a county located in the Commonwealth of Virginia, on the west bank of the Potomac River directly across from Washington, D.C. Although sometimes referred to as a city, Arlington is actually a county which contains no incorporated towns or cities within its boundaries. Originally part of the 10-mile square area set aside in 1791 for the nation’s capital, the land now comprising Arlington County was returned to the Commonwealth of Virginia by the U.S. Congress in 1846 and was known at the time as Alexandria County. In 1852, the independent City of Alexandria was incorporated from a portion of the County, leading to confusion, as two adjacent municipal entities continued to share the same name (“Alexandria”). Although best known generally as the home of the Pentagon, The Iwo Jima War Memorial, and Arlington National Cemetery, the County is also an important employment center. The Federal Government accounts for the lion’s share of the roughly 200,000 jobs in Arlington, but high-tech companies have become increasingly prominent, as have several major associations, Fortune 500 companies, and other nationally known employers. The County’s residential population is among the most highly educated in the nation and is increasingly diverse. Arlington is the home of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and is serviced by the Orange, Blue and Yellow lines of the Washington Metro. The County is traversed by two Interstate highways, I-66 and I-395; as well as by the George Washington Memorial Parkway.
The name Arlington is synonymous in many people’s minds with Arlington National Cemetery, the most famous national cemetery in the United States. Veterans from all the nation’s wars are buried in the cemetery, as are two former Presidents (John F. Kennedy and William Howard Taft). Also located in Arlington are the Pentagon, headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, and several notable memorials, including the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial (also known as the “Iwo Jima Memorial”), the U.S. Air Force Memorial, and the Women in Military Service for America Memorial.
