Arlington home review, 5/10/18

Facts for Buyers: Address: 1511 North Buchanan Street, Arlington (22205). Listed at: $1,499,900 by Tori McKinney, ROCK STAR Realty Group, Keller Williams Metro Center (703) 867-8674. Schools: Glebe Elementary, Swanson Middle, Washington-Lee High School.

Something exceptional awaits our inspection this week, as we travel to Waycroft-Woodlawn to view a 2012 property that combines classic Craftsman bungalow lines with a decidedly forward-thinking persona.

Awarded an impressive gold level in the Arlington Green Home Program for its energy-consciousness (plus walkability and accessibility to shopping and parks), the home also features a county-approved accessory dwelling on the lower level, which can work equally well as an income-producing space or as a home for in-laws or an au pair.

And as yet another bonus, there is a finished loft above the detached garage, perfect for a multitude of uses.

All this, and this custom-designed home features quality fit and finishes and welcoming and classical lines that are sure to embrace all who come to enter.

The property currently is on the market, listed at $1,499,900 by Tori McKinney of ROCK STAR Realty Group of Keller Williams Metro Center.

An expansive covered front porch provides lovely curb appeal and sets the tone for everything we will encounter and enjoy on our tour.

Stepping inside, we have unfettered views through the depth of the home, with the creative layout featuring a formal living room (with fireplace) and dining room in the middle of this level, plus an exceptional, chef’s-caliber kitchen toward the rear, with bay-window vistas and step-down access to the rear of the home and the garage behind.

A music room is at the front of the home, connected to the living room for marvelous entertaining opportunities, and a home office is at the rear. An extra bonus is the screened porch, a comfortable and inviting space that offers a ceiling fan and slate flooring.

The master bedroom retreat occupies a strategic location at the rear of the upper level, with bonuses that include a sitting nook, two walk-in closets, a dry sauna and a sumptuous master bath.

Two additional bedrooms are found on this level, each with copious closet space, and laundry facilities can be found here, as well.

A large recreation and media room  occupies two-thirds of the lower level, while the accessory unit (with living room, full-sized kitchen, bedroom, bath, laundry and private entrance) comprises the remainder of the space

Energy Star appliances, in-floor radiant heat throughout and other features guarantee comfort and lower heating/cooling bills while also ensuring you are treating our natural environment with consideration.

It’s a winner, through and through.
