Braemar Four Bedroom Carriage Home–Just Listed for $379,000

13802 Tartan Hills Parkway, Bristow, VA listed on August 24th (2013) for $379,000

This home, located at 13802 Tartan Hills Parkway, is a Parkdale floor plan, the largest Carriage home built by Brookfield in our neighborhood.  And it’s no wonder that the Parkdales are so popular.  The open concept floor plan is a crowd pleaser. The kitchen, with plenty of counter and cabinet space, a large island and breakfast nook is open to the family room.  There are also the formal rooms, living and dining, on either side of the foyer.

Kitchen with island and Breakfast Nook

You’ll find all four bedrooms on the upper level.  The Master Suite is a very large room with a walk-in closet and attached bathroom.  This particular Parkdale has a dual vanity, expansive counter and two sinks.   The tub and shower are combined in this home.  The remaining three bedrooms share the additional full bathroom.

Master Bedroom

The laundry is on the main level, opposite the Butler’s pantry, as with every Parkdale.  And of course, there is a main level powder room.

One unique feature of the corner lot for this Parkdale is that the two car detached garage is accessed by a short driveway on the side street.  It eats up less of the yard that way and  gives the home a clean streetscape.

Garage entrance is front side street.

The covered front porch is another favorite with Braemar buyers.  

Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037This Parkdale has an unfinished basement, but is plumbed for a full bathroom.  The next owner, if they choose, could finish the basement to include a den, recreation and a full bathroom.

Located in Tartan Hills Village West, the HOA dues with this home include basic cable and internet with RCN cable, as well as all the amenities Braemar has to offer.

If you are interested in taking a look, give me a call.

Another Braemar Single Family Home Sold!

On July 20, 2013, I was out with a buyer-client in Braemar.  We’d seen just about everything listed in Bristow under $450,000 and were not impressed.  Either the lots were undesirable, the communities were less than appealing or the homes were outdated and attempting to take advantage of the seller’s market.  No matter how much demand there is, buyers aren’t likely to over pay for a home.

10025 Spindle Foot Court in Braemar sold for $437,500 on August 5, 2013.

We were leaving a listing on Hopper Lane when we saw a For Sale By Owner sign.  Out of curiosity, we called and asked the list price and if we could view it on short notice. The list price was $445,000.  And the sellers were happy to let us see the home right then, on three minutes notice.

It was a pipe stem lot.  Nice and private.  While modest in size, it had been well maintained.  New carpet was just installed and the paint looked fairly fresh too.  Even the deck had been given some TLC.

Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037The next day, my Buyer made an offer on the home.  After a quick back and forth, all parties were in agreement.  It was a cash deal and slotted to settle in two weeks.  That’s a fast turn around!  In the world of Bristow-Gainesville real estate, most deals close within an average of about forty days.
