The Ballston community is in the midst of a renaissance, with the opening of Ballston Quarter heralding a new era. And this week’s featured property is emblematic of the opportunities that await.

A four-level townhome featuring more than 1,800 square feet of living space, the property showcases a cool elegance, with upscale accoutrements and easy living. Plus, there is parking (always a bonus) and access to all the best of the urban-village corridor – restaurants, shops, public transit, even the farmers’ market on Thursdays.

The property currently is on the market, listed at $783,000 by Kathy Fong and Matt Shepard of Keller Williams Metro Center.

Accessed via an enchanting courtyard, the first impressions of the property are top-notch. And as we tour the home, note the attention to detail. From the gleaming hardwood flooring to the light-filled rooms with a colorful pallette, there is much to enjoy.

The main level is home to the ample living room, plus a comfortable dining room and the stunning, eat-in white kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops and pale-grey ceramic flooring.

An added bonus on this level is the private screened-in porch, a perfect spot for your morning coffee before the start of a day or work or play. A half bath is found on this level, as well.

The first upper level offers a bedroom plus a light-filled loft area, perfect as a home office (or conversion to a second bedroom). There also is a Jack-and-Jill bath.

The uppermost level features the sun-drenched owner’s suite, with volume ceilings, a newly renovated bath, generous closet space and a private sunroom.

But wait ... there’s more! The walk-out lower level features a recreation room with wood-burning fireplace, a half bath and, as yet another surprise, French doors leading out to the Georgetown-style patio.

It is, in sum, a superb opportunity.

Forget It !!! This neighborhood is going to experience total multi-modal gridlock by 2025. Like 5000 more residential units and 4500 more parking spaces. Residents are already being told to go play in the street and in tiny pocket parks with their bicycles and scooters for so-called "open space". Then there are the rents and real estate taxes for condos that are going to be outta sight in 5 years.
