Property Description

LOOKING FOR A ‘LIKE-NEW’, UPDATED HOME IN THE ‘WALKABLE-PORTION’ OF FALLS CHURCH - this 2,900 sq. ft. property could be the home you have been looking and waiting for. LOCATED in the charming HILLWOOD neighborhood that straddles Hillwood Avenue within Falls Church City and Fairfax County; this property is just steps away from Azalea Park and playground. The property is just over ONE-MILE in walking/biking distance from EAST FALLS CHURCH METRO STATION and the FALLS CHURCH FARMERS MARKET and only two blocks from bus service and two of the area's major commuting arteries. In fact commuting anywhere in the Washington Metro Area is easy with quick access to Rts. 7, 50, 29, 66, 95 and 495. The WalkScore is 67 and the Bike Score is 50 and there are plenty of local points of interest to walk or bike to!! Azalea Park is extremely popular and where neighbors and children congregate to meet and play. THIS HOME has a stunning new kitchen with quartz counter-tops and new energy-efficient appliances, 3 recently renovated full baths, 5 generous-sized bedrooms (or optional-use rooms), upgraded electrical service, and a new energy-efficient HVAC system!! THIS HOME also has a new roof with architectural-grade shingles, solid 8 inch thick brick/masonry construction with the finished brick work installed using the 'Scottish Bond' style and new energy and sound-efficient Anderson insulated glass replacement windows. Other new improvements include new Hardi-plank siding for the upper-rear shed dormer, and newly refinished hardwood floors stained with a rich Chestnut Brown finish. The thick masonry walls and the new Anderson windows also make this home unbelievably quiet, which you will notice when you step inside. Experience it for yourself - pause and listen as you begin your home inspection tour! ON THE MAIN LEVEL leading from the generous-sized new kitchen is a 9-month enclosed, screen, covered porch and flagstone patio that has been finished as if it were an OUTSIDE family/recreation room, which is a PERFECT ADDITION for outdoor dining and entertaining. The bedroom (or option-room) on the main level is another versatile feature of this home because it could also easily be used as a main-level office or den/family room. ON THE LOWER LEVEL is a new full bath, recreational room/area, laundry/storage room and 5th bedroom or another option room that could easily be used as a guest bedroom or a home school room or home gym. Full-sized windows and masonry window-wells have been installed in the lower level recreational area and 5th bedroom to make these rooms code-compliant for 'legal bedrooms.' This is another versatile aspect to this home because you can have peace-of-mind if you use the lower level bedroom as a bedroom, or as an au pair/in-law suite OR adopt another usage. ALL OF THE OTHER IMPROVEMENTS THAT ONE WOULD EXPECT IN A NEW HOME HAVE ALSO BEEN COMPLETED, such as fresh painting with popular decorator colors, new light fixtures and new hardware, etc. WOW - that's a lot of fresh updated and when added to this very charming traditional/colonial -style home has resulted in a very crisp and like-new home that IS built the way they used to build homes!!!
