Arlington home review, 7/11/19

Facts for Buyers: Address: 2845 Lorcom Lane, Arlington (22207).  Listed at: $1,335,000 by Susan Joy, Long & Foster Real Estate (703) 284-9215. Schools: Taylor Elementary, Dorothy Hamm Middle, Yorktown High School.

It will be hard to top this week’s home within its price point, as it manages to combine extraordinary space, a marvelous yard and a stunning, verdant location amid the always-in-fashion Woodmont neighborhood.

From the professional landscaping that rings the exterior to superb attention to detail inside to solid walkability and bikeability scores, this is a turnkey opportunity to find yourself in a stunning location (within the Donaldson Run pool area). Metro, parks, shops and restaurants all are within easy proximity.

The property – with updates galore – currently is on the market, listed at $1,335,000 by Susan Joy of Long & Foster Real Estate.

The architectural appeal of the home is undeniable, and the property sits on a 8,500-square-foot lot, large enough to enjoy throughout the year but not so large it becomes a chore.

Interior spaces are amply proportioned and the traffic flow is very strong, making this a perfect backdrop for entertaining in style. Natural sunlight fills the home, and the color choices are exceptional.

On the main level, we enjoy the living and dining rooms, the eat-in kitchen and a marvelous walk-out family room. And there is a 500-plus-square-foot TV/game/play room with windows on three sides that will serve as the hub for fun family activities.

The master retreat is the highlight of the upper level, with plentiful space, a sumptuous bath and copious closet areas. Three additional bedrooms are found on this level, as well.

Down on the lower level you will find a nicely sized recreation room as well as the home’s fifth bedroom.

A two-car garage is attached, and should you desire, the Rainbow Systems playset/clubhouse in the rear yard can convey.

While the home itself is a delight, the location augments it marvelously. Two blocks in one direction is Windy Run Park and its trails to the Potomac; a few blocks in the other direction is the quiet oasis of Fort C.F. Smith Park. You are a block from the W&OD Regional Trail (with a bike lane at your front door), just a mile to the Clarendon Metro (and an ART bus stop is just 100 feet away) and a minute to Interstate 66.

It’s an opportunity not to be missed!
