Family Home in Burke Centre. House is in the Oaks neighborhood (you will notice all of the streets in the neighborhood have “oak” in them). Oakland Park Drive and Burr Oak make an almost exact 1 mile loop on the sidewalk. There are several wooded walking paths that twist through the neighborhood. There are playgrounds, tennis, and basketball courts. As part of Burke Centre you have access to 5 neighborhood pools. There is a commuter bus with a stop 100 yards from the house that will go to the Pentagon and the Metro so you can commute into DC without a car. The VRE station is less than 2 miles away. This house has been owned by the same family since it was built with three generations living under the same roof for several years. It has many upgrades from the original build including an updated kitchen, wood floors, and a large screened-in porch. Half of the basement was finished 7 years ago with the addition of a legal bedroom (with egress window), playroom, and full bathroom. In addition to the finished space, there is still nearly 800 sq ft of climate-controlled storage with shelving in the basement. The top floor has the master suite with full bathroom, one walk-in closet and two additional closets, and three other bedrooms with a hall bathroom. The main living floor as a study that can be used as a bedroom with a full bathroom. Many houses in the neighborhood have also converted the room over the garage to finished space, we have used it for storage. This house has a large kitchen, family room, living room, and formal dining room. The kitchen has quartz countertops, and redone cabinets. The electrical system was completely replaced in 2016 including a house-wide surge protector. The driveway was replaced in 2016 as well. There is a double-car garage with one deep bay big enough for a large van. Kids can play in the front grassy area or in the wooded area in back. Public Library is less than a mile walk on sidewalks, close enough for kids to walk/bike there. Can’t emphasize enough this is the perfect combo for people who want a large family house in a community-focused neighborhood. Multiple grocery stores are very close and Kohl’s, Target, and WalMart are all less than 3 miles away.
