An Arlington Bungalow Full of Surprises
At the end of a cul-de-sac a couple of blocks from the Custis Trail in Cherrydale, this Bungalow Nation-featured house has plenty of surprises behind its garden-like front yard and porch. The living room spans the front of the house upon entry and has a tiled fireplace at one end between built-ins. The kitchen has marble countertops, an island topped with butcher block, a brick and stone backsplash in shades of tan, and a breakfast bar peninsula that abuts a breakfast nook. Past the back door, the family room has a stone fireplace and built-ins along the adjacent wall. An abstract, artistic cut-out provides a peek at the wooden ceiling beams on the lower level, which also has a built-in wet bar beside lighted display nooks. There is also a bonus room with full bath above the two-car garage.
