This handsome, extremely well maintained, brick home features easy, luxurious, single-floor living and borders a quiet, mature, tree lined street of welcoming neighbors. Its double corner lot is beautifully landscaped with a thoughtfully chosen variety of perennial weigelia, azaleas, rhododendron, laurel, peony, barberry, and hydrangeas. Crepe myrtle, dogwood, hinoki cypress, royal purple smoke, fig, river birch, and pine trees add definition to the yard—quite simply, a gardener’s dream.
The hard-to-beat location is only 15 minutes from Reagan National Airport and the Kennedy Center. Just a short hop takes you to 66, the Dolly Madison Parkway, and Ballston’s Metro Station. Marymount College, the Washington Golf and Country Club, restaurants, shops, and banks are all within minutes of easy strolling.
Solidly constructed, this home has been lovingly kept, renovated, added on to, and updated again. It has hardwood flooring and ceramic tile throughout. Energy efficient and exceedingly comfortable radiant heat is supplied from a 100 gallon hot water tank, heated by a gas furnace.
