The Pinterest-worthy kitchen was renovated with white and gray cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and quartz counters in 2017. The wall was opened up into the dining room allowing space for a HUGE kitchen island and easy conversation while cooking. The formal dining room walks into the large formal living room with huge picture window.

The .26 acre lot is a dream with a huge flat front yard, double concrete driveway (perfect for basketball hoop and/or extra car), deck & large shed. The tree canopy provides lots of privacy. The location is a quiet side street that gets very little traffic. It’s conveniently located between Stratford Landing and Fort Hunt Elementary School (one of just 2 Spanish World Language Immersion schools in Fairfax County).
As if the features of this home weren’t enough, the Fort Hunt neighborhood was recently described in a Washington Post article as a “50’s suburban dream”. Imagine the serene commute home from work on the scenic GW Parkway - mature trees surround you on both sides, views of bikers and walkers enjoying the Mount Vernon Trail and breathtaking views of the Potomac River. Spend weekends exploring Fort Hunt Park, a 136-acre National Park including pavilions, a bike and walking trail, volleyball courts, woods, open fields for sports and the historic Fort, built during the Spanish-American war. Support local small businesses by running errands at the charming Hollin Hall Shopping Center, built in 1958. The Potomac River, with a picnic area and views of Mount Vernon is just 1 mile away. And while it’s easy to forget you are just 14 miles from Washington, DC, the 11Y bus to downtown DC just steps away, only 10 miles to Reagan National Airport and Fort Belvoir and just 2 miles from George Washington's Mount Vernon.
