A Week for an Arlington Farmhouse
A week after hitting the market, this Lyon Park farmhouse went under contract. Its configuration seems built for social distancing, starting with the dual-entry front porch and the half-bath just steps past the front door. The kitchen has a ceiling fan, a stainless steel hood and backsplash above the stove, and a pantry nook that houses the back door. One of the upstairs bedrooms is styled as an office, with a wall of floor-to-ceiling shelves opposite a built-in desk. There is also a large deck in the back yard, a second deck with a tree growing out of it just a few steps down. A stone path leads down from the deck, through the yard and around the side of the house.
