Under a Week For A Cottage for Nature Lovers 

Steps from the National Arboretum, this Woodridge home, adorned in solid oak finishings, spent just under a week on the market before going under contract. The Brazilian quartzite counters, copper sink and bright green cabinetry really highlight the kitchen, which also has a wine fridge. Two bedrooms on the main floor share a bathroom with dark floral wallpaper. A rear facing pantry area also serves as the laundry room with tons of built in storage and a mosaic floor. The entire top floor contains the primary suite, with a large closet, recessed shelving and a bathroom with a waterfall shower, a solid walnut vanity and modern fixtures. Out back, there's lots of grass for activities and flower boxes line the fence.
