Just Listed in Braemar’s Dunbarton: Modern Day Cottage for $358,000
Did you know that Braemar has an Active Adult section of the community named Dunbarton? Well, this is a modern day two bedroom, three bathroom cottage in Dunbarton for $358,000.
Located at 13243 Ormond Drive, this Patuxent model by Patriot Homes is a crowd pleaser. A long foyer entry brings in beside the second bedroom. The bay window in this bedroom gets soaked in early morning light with its southeast exposure. A full bathroom just outside its door, but separated from the rest of the home by the staircase to the loft, makes it a great guest suite.
The Master Suite is on the other side of the staircase to the loft and has a large walk-in closet and attached full bathroom with dual sinks/vanity and a seamless shower. It’s just the right size.
Outside is the open floor plan with a soaring vaulted ceiling in the family room. From here you can see the kitchen, breakfast nook and dining area. All are open to each other.
The kitchen has more granite counter space than you will probably ever need. And the cabinet space includes a pantry with pull out shelves from top to bottom. Such a fantastic every day convenience.
One really unique feature of this home is the two sided gas fireplace. You first notice it in the family room, but step back into the sun room with its three walls of windows drenched in late afternoon light, and you see the other side. The sun room, is by far, my favorite nook of the house.
The loft overlooks the foyer on one side, and the family room on the other. It’s a very modern space with its own full bathroom. You could have a make shift guest suite up here.
Outside is a fully fenced backyard and paver patio. It is private feeling lot with a large berm just beyond the fence. The power line easement just beyond the berm means no one will ever built behind your home.
Active Adult communities have age restrictions, and Dunbarton is no exception. At least one resident in each home must be 55 or older. There are also no residents allowed below 18. The community itself has an indoor pool, billard/game room, party room and an exercise room. There’s even a putting green outside their clubhouse. All that AND they have access to all the Braemar amenities.
