Are you looking for the perfect, maintenance free backyard? The backyard where kids can have their adventures and which gives you a view of nature? Well, this backyard has trees, hills and a ravine AND it doesn't need mowing! It also has two large decks for your own quiet time or for entertaining. So much space, so little maintenance! Even better, the house is on a cul-de-sac off ANOTHER cul-de-sac... so we're talking virtually NO traffic. AND it's a LEVEL cul-de-sac, THE perfect place to ride bikes, shoot hoops and many other outdoor games. And when the weather turns, there's an awesome clubhouse just beyond the edge of the deck. For the bigger kids in the house (because not all of us grow up) the decks are super for entertaining! They don't get soggy and they never need to be mowed. And the beautifully landscaped front yard, which enhances your wonderful curb appeal, includes a nice lawn, so nice, it takes only NINE minutes to mow! Can you believe, all of this can be found just 4 minutes from Chain Bridge, and just 16 minutes from Crystal City/National Airport?Not only that, it's also within the Chesterbrook Elementary School District, the driving force behind the current owners' move to the neighborhood when their daughters were 4 and 6 years old (now all grown and on their own). Chesterbrook remains a sought after elementary school and part of the renowned Fairfax County Public School System. So let's talk about the house! Starting right away with the welcoming foyer with its curved stairway, there is great flow leading through the generously proportioned living and dining rooms, the beautifully remodeled kitchen with ample eating space and open to the family room (and the foyer) and continuing through the side hallway, where the double coat closets are, right back to the foyer. The office, with its wonderful built ins, and from where you can keep an eye on the cul-de-sac, is nicely tucked behind the coat closets and the powder room. And not to forget, the laundry room is conveniently located off the family room and connects to the garage. The bedroom level, with three beautifully remodeled bathrooms (come see!), more well proportioned rooms, including the landing, has oodles of closet space! On the lower level, the finished half, with the large 5th bedroom and full bath, has a super sized rec room with the 3rd fireplace and wetbar, and sliding doors leading to the lower of the two decks (by the way, the upper and lower decks are connected to each other). The not so finished half provides amazing storage space with room to spare for crafting or other messier hobbies to boot. And just in case that's not enough there is also a "bunker room" under the garage (accessible from the unfinished half of the basement). Remember that weather that sent the kids to the clubhouse? Well, if it was even worse than that, and you were snowed in, those cul-de-sac games could probably be played in the bunker, no joke! And if feeling part of a community is important to you, that's yet another reason this could be THE ONE! The civic association makes it easy to reach out to neighbors and maintains a list of young entrepreneurs who are ready to shovel your driveway, babysit, or do a variety of chores. Aren't you curious now? Come check it out in person, it's the only way to know for sure if this is the home where your next chapter is meant to begin!
