In this week’s edition of NoVa Best New Listings, we look at two-bedroom condo in Ballston with an embarrassment of parking riches, an Old Town rowhouse with a secret room, and a McLean French provincial mansion with a laundry room, wine cellar, and waterfall.

NoVa Best New Listings: Old Town, Ballston, McLean: Figure 1

McLean Mansion with Laundry Room Nicer than Your Kitchen

This five-bedroom French provincial-style home in McLean has some elements that make it stand out in an area of stand-out houses. There is a laundry room/pantry which is bigger than most kitchens, a glassed-in, temperature-controlled wine cellar that looks like it belongs in a high-end restaurant, and a backyard complete with a gazebo and a swimming pool (with waterfall) that could be in a waterpark somewhere.

Ballston Condo with Tons of Parking

This two-bedroom, two-bath condo at the Residences at Liberty Court in Ballston, has a a new kitchen, updated bathrooms, and great views from the ninth-floor unit’s balcony. But the condo’s best feature is actually down in the building’s garage: The unit comes with not one, not two, not three, but four reserved parking spots. These prime parking spaces can be sold or rented, or you could just greedily hold onto all of them, ensuring that your visitors never, ever have to hunt for street parking.

Old Town Row House with Bonus Room

Open the closet door in the second bedroom of this Old Town row house, and instead of hangers you’ll find a stairwell. While it doesn’t lead to Narnia, the destination is still pretty cool: an adorable “bonus” room, which could be used as an office/nursery/secret hideout. The attic hideaway, which has its own little cedar-lined closet, could also be transformed into a celebrity-style walk-in closet/dressing room.
