Amelia Springs Circle--it's a friendly sounding place and picturesque when you drive down the street. And this carriage home just got a bit friendlier, dropping it's list price from $339,000 to $325.000. The carriage homes on this street are large enough that calling them townhouses doesn't seem an accurate description. They are attached single family homes.
This Vanderbilt model will sure make you glad you stopped by for a showing. Hardwood floors grace the entire main level, excluding only the mudroom/laundry room. The first rooms you notice walking in the front door are the living room ahead of you and the dining room to your left.
Step toward the back of the home and you'll find the informal, every day areas. Here you have a kitchen sporting granite counter tops, wall mounted oven and microwave, cook top and a high counter that you can just picture your guests leaning over as you prepare snacks, drinks or a meal. The breakfast nook gives enough table space for those everyday informal meals. Family room is open to the kitchen, but has a nice addition of glass French Doors that can close it off from the formal areas. Powder room and mud room/laundry room are tucked away in their own corner, not to draw unwanted attention when entertaining.
Upstairs you'll find a modified floor plan with four bedrooms instead of the standard three, and they are all very generously sized. In my personal opinion, it's a much better use of space is having a fourth bedroom than having a two story living room. A Princess Suite sits over the garage with dramatic Palladian window and private entrance to the Jack n' Jill bathroom.
Like the Princess Suite, the Master Suite has a cathedral ceiling. In the Master, you'll enjoy a the convenience of a large walk-in closet, separate tub and shower, water closet and dual vanity. The full, unfinished basement is there to provide a ton of storage. If you prefer, finish it to you liking with the knowledge that you can add a full bathroom.
The surrounding gated community of Dominion Valley offers a ton of amenities. To begin, basic cable and Internet are included in your monthly HOA fees. Within walking distance of this home, you'll find an outdoor pool, tennis and basketball courts and a fenced tot lot.
Drive a short distance to the Dominion Valley Sports Pavilion for a workout in the exercise room, an aerobics class or a dip in the Dominion Valley Country Club Pool. There is daycare inside the Sports Pavilion, a nice service for residents with young children.
The Arnold Palmer designed golf course winds its way through the community, starting at the Clubhouse. Here there is also an exquisite ballroom available for residents to rent for their special events, and the Palmer Grill in the lower level with indoor and outdoor seating. Make sure you check out the statue of Arnold Palmer before you leave. It was carved from an existing, inground tree stump.
Shopping at the nearby Market Square at Dominion Valley makes life even simpler. Groceries, restaurants, and retail are less than five minutes away. And a ten minute drive gets you to the Heathcote Health Center or Route 66 for eastbound commuters.
