In this week’s edition of NoVa Best New Listings, we look at a home in Old Town that has an outdoor room, an Arlington four-bedroom with a living room and a spare, and a Mount Vernon Park bungalow with the ultimate second bedroom.
Old Town Home with Walled-In Brick Patio
This new-ish townhome in Old Town, built in 1980, has four stories of impressive rooms, including a master bedroom with a fireplace, a living room with French doors, and a second bedroom with a cozy window seat/reading nook. But the brick patio/backyard area rivals any of the rooms inside the house, save for the fact that it doesn’t have a ceiling. The greenery is manicured and the fact that the patio is walled-in with brick on all sides means outdoor parties can occur without nosy neighbors peeking through wood or chain link fencing.
- Full Listing: 126 Waterford Place, Alexandria, Va. (map)
- Price: $918,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Year Built: 1980
- Listing Agent: Joanne Gunn, McEnearney Associates
Arlington Colonial with Double Living Room
Walk through the front door of this Arlington colonial in the Golf Club Manor community and you’ll see a modern, open living room to your right and to your left, another smaller sitting room. Is it a parlor? A salon? A drawing room? A library? Potentially, it could be any of those things, or a first-floor playroom or family room. And, although this home has a huge, updated eat-in kitchen, sticklers for tradition could use the space as a formal dining room as well.
- Full Listing: 4530 40th Street North, Arlington, Va. (map)
- Price: $915,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1955
- Listing Agent: Bret Brock, Howard Brock Realty
Mount Vernon Park Bungalow with Fancy Kids’ Room
Master bedrooms in homes almost always look great, while second, third, and fourth bedrooms can leave something to be desired. The current owners of this Mount Vernon Park two-bedroom made a point of beautifying the second bedroom, making it an incredibly fancy children’s room complete with molding and even a chandelier. Whether or not the eventual buyer uses it for the same purpose, they’ll know they’re getting a second bedroom that’s just as nice-looking as the master.
- Full Listing: 104 Summers Drive, Alexandria, Va. (map)
- Price: $739,000
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1927
- Listing Agent: Christopher Hayes, McEnearney Associates
