Dunn Loring | VA
Located on a quiet, highly desirable cul-de-sac with only one other house, 7961 Blitz Court is a “Waterford” model brick colonial on an elegantly landscaped large and level corner lot. Uniquely, this home sits adjacent to common green space – providing extra space for outdoor activities. Graciously sized and beautifully appointed, this pristine 3,604 square foot home offers unmatched curb appeal while featuring all the sought-after and thoughtful upgrades to make it the ultimate in suburban living.
Sun floods in on the gleaming oak hardwood floors in the formal and grand two-story foyer with 18ft.+ ceilings. To your left, through double French doors with transom is an office with two sets of custom built-in shelving and windows overlooking the yard. To your right the formal living room provides oversized windows with transom windows above and the wall of mirrors reflects light into the home. The formal living room is directly connected to the spacious formal dining room through an oversized entry. The dining room benefits from crown moldings, and a large bay window.
The gourmet kitchen boasts a granite island, recently replaced stainless steel appliances, handsome white cabinetry and gas cooking. A breakfast room, with bay window, provides casual eating space and opens to the family room, allowing for an airy flow, perfect for grand-scale parties or relaxed entertainment. The family room features a gas fireplace and soaks in light from the multiple oversized transom windows and wall of French doors leading to the large deck — which is ideal for dining al fresco or entertaining on a breezy summer night.
On the upper level, the primary bedroom suite touts a fully remodeled spa-like en-suite bathroom. The bath provides an extra-long double vanity with ample storage, an oversized shower with glass enclosure, corner jetted tub, separate water closet, two windows and a skylight. The three-sided fireplace separates the sleeping area from the sitting room which has a bay window and two large walk-in closets provide abundant storage.
You will find two additional bedrooms on this level – both with their own en-suite full, ceramic-tile bathroom and large closets. There is also a windowed laundry room with space for storage and folding. The top level is a fourth bedroom suite, with tree-top views out of the Palladian window. There is a walk-in closet, and an en-suite ceramic-tile bathroom.
The finished lower level with new carpeting is centered around a sunken recreation room with built-in shelving. There is also a separate side room overlooking the rec room. An office/den with French doors is an ideal home office, and you’ll find a ceramic tile full bathroom. Additional storage space is found in the large utility room. A French door opens to the rear yard. Professionally landscaped for nearly maintenance-free living, the yard is filled with azaleas, mountain laurels, mature limelight hydrangea, astilbe, holly, honeysuckle and footpaths surrounded by ferns and hellebores providing self-sustaining beauty year-round. Beauty is not just skin deep with this house! The owners replaced the roof with gutter guards and new downspouts, so a major expense has already been addressed. Further, there are dual sump pumps in the basement for additional protection during heavy rains, a recently replaced hot water heater and a recently replaced HVAC.
As if this were all not enough, this home also includes four off-street parking spots, two of which are in the attached garage, though ample street parking abounds in this neighborhood. The location of this home is second to none, just minutes from the epicenters of Tyson’s Corner, the Mosaic District, and McLean, all with rich arrays of grocery shops, restaurants, shops and more. It’s a short trip to multiple metro stations and with easy access to the Beltway means that it’s just minutes to downtown DC and beyond.
