An oasis of Southern comfort in the midst of suburban living with the most convenient of commutes to our Nation's Capital ... you will find it in this gorgeous grand colonial in the Arlington Heights community. Step into the welcoming calm of vaulted ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors upon entry beckoning one to venture further in. The impact of stepping into a gorgeous estate seemingly set in the country is immediate as one is delightfully greeted with the charm of plantation-clad shutters throughout the wrap-around windows in the living room, anchored by a classic, white mantle-framed fireplace, a setting of cozy comfort. Just beyond the beautiful glass doors on the side and rear of this space is the brick lined patio to enjoy afternoon tea or evening cocktails that expands to a beautifully laid out flagstone paved backyard with a custom built brick fired pizza oven. The dining and kitchen area is a gourmet chef's dream with granite countertops and high end stainless steel appliances like Viking, Samsung Chef Collection, Whirlpool Gold, and Bosch. The expansive, tiled mudroom also functions as the laundry room and is easily accessed between kitchen and garage. The primary bedroom continues this theme of country living with more plantation shutters, the comfort of double walk-in closets, and a soaking tub with separate glass enclosed shower in primary bath. Two generously sized ensuite bedrooms with full baths, one other bedroom and hallway full bath complete this level. The lower level provides a 5th bedroom and 5th full bath, a bonus room, more relaxing and entertaining space that leads to a walkup rear access. Other notables: HVAC/Trane 2018; insulation with flash and batt to reduce noise; surround sound; two sump pumps with battery backup power. Location is so prime with this home set a mile and a half to Ballston Quarter, Fashion Center Pentagon City, an endless array of restaurants, and all that the DC metro environs has to offer with the convenience of metro and commuter access so close to Route 50 and I-66/I-395/I-495. A gracious home like this is a gem ... it will not be available to admire for long.
