Just Listed in Morris Farm: Four Bedroom Carriage Home for $375,000
Morris Farm is one of my favorite communities along the Linton Hall corridor. It was built around a 45 acre nature conservancy where you could sit and read a book in peace and quiet, or take a walk. And this one of my favorite floor plans in the community. It's a Parkdale carriage home built by Brookfield Homes. Its charm starts with the covered front porch, which in this case, boasts a porch swing. The hallmark of a carriage home is the detached two car garage in the rear of the home. This garage is accessed by a private driveway off the street, rather than the less desirable shared back alley.
Inside is an open floor plan with everything you'd expect of a Northern Virginia colonial. Formal living and dining rooms flank the foyer. The family room and kitchen are open to one another. The family room has an abundance of space and a gas fireplace to enjoy in the colder months.
The kitchen has been updated to include Corian counters and island. There's no lack of cabinet or counter space here. You'll love preparing meals in this home. An eat-in area on the opposite side of the island is perfect for every day meals. A Butler's pantry transitions you past the laundry room and back in to the formal dining room. For convenience, there is a powder room on the main level.
Upstairs are four bedrooms. The Master Suite awaits behind French doors and is quite impressive with its sitting room, walk-in closet and luxury bathroom. Separate tub and shower and dual vanity are a must for a master bath and this one isn't missing a thing. The remaining three bedrooms range in size from 10 x 10 to 12 x 10. They all share the second full bathroom accessed by the hall.
In the basement you'll find a recreation room that is prewired for a home theater. The equipment that is there does not convey, but can give you some great ideas. In the rear of the room is a wet bar. The full-size refrigerator does not convey. The den is finished with custom bookshelves with recessed light accents. This would be a great home office, or can be used if you need an additional bedroom. A third full bathroom is just around the corner.
Outside is the garage and a fully fenced rear yard. What's unique about the fence is that it divided the yard into two yards. The current owners are using one specifically for the dogs. The other side has a boxed gardening area that they have not used this season, so it's yours to plant as you see fit. The amenities at Morris Farm include an outdoor pool, the nature conservancy area and tot lots. This home is move-in ready. If you wait to see this one, you may miss it.
