Looking for the perfect single family home to fit your needs in Braemar?  Come on by our open house this weekend at 12278 Scotts Mill Drive in Bristow.  Sunday, 1pm-3pm.

In addition to having a floor plan giving you  formal living and dining rooms, but more open kitchen, breakfast nook and family room, this home is situated on a very desirable wooded, cul-de-sac lot.  It is priced at $485,000.

You’ll love the fully finished basement,which gives you recreation space, a walk out exit and two additional bedrooms and one more full bathroom.  All told, this is a six bedroom, three and a half bedroom home.

Things you won’t need to worry about when you choose this Braemar home are the roof, HVAC and water heater.  They are all new.  The kitchen appliances were also recently replaced and a shiny stainless steel.  In the recreation room, you may not notice it by looking, but there is a retractable movie screen and built in home theater speakers.

Stop by Sunday’s open house and get a Halloween treat.  No tricks here.  Either day, you can pick a Braemar Halloween bag.

Come see this one for yourself. And if you have any questions about this home or the neighborhood, give me a call.  Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

Just Listed: Six Bedroom Home on a Wooded, Cul-de-Sac Lot for $485,000

Just Listed: Six Bedroom Home on a Wooded, Cul-de-Sac Lot for $485,000

Location, location, location.  This home at 12278 Scotts Mill Drive in Braemar has loads of space and is in a super desirable location.  Don’t worry.  We’re going to get to all the details in this post and I’m going to share lots of pictures with you.  Let me start by telling you the basics:  12278 Scotts Mill is priced at $485,000, has six bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms and is located on a wooded, cul-de-sac lot.

Starting with the covered front porch, complete with ceiling fans to keep you cool in the warmer months, this home oozes curb appeal.  The front door entry is all the way to the left of the front, and recessed a bit, so it’s not so easy to see in the picture above, so here’s a better view.

Once you walk in the front door, a powder room is discreetly located away from the formal rooms and kitchen, but you also have a sweeping view of the formal rooms.  The living room gets the glorious morning sunlight with its eastern facing window.  The dining room gets the warm glow of sunsets, with a western facing window.

My favorite part of the main level are the informal rooms.  The kitchen is expansive, and included a breakfast nook.  Pictured is an eight seat square dining table.  From here, you can pass through to the dining room, or enjoy the openness to the family room.

The family room is a perfect size for large furnishings, but still feels cozy.  The gas fireplace is the focal point of this room.

Upstairs you will enjoy a large master suite with cathedral ceiling, two closets and attached full bathroom.

There are three other bedrooms on the upper level and one additional full bathroom that connects to the hallway and directly to the third bedroom.  It is also worth noting that there is a large attic fan that, with the flick of a switch, can suck any hot air out of the home, for optimal summer cooling.

In the basement is where you find the remaining two bedrooms, (at opposite ends of that level,) an additional full bathroom, laundry area and a large recreation area with retractable movie screen, home theater speakers and built in book cases.  Did I mention this is walk out level basement?  That means lots of large windows, natural light and easy egress.

Outside you can enjoy your wooded view from the fully fenced yard, wood deck or patio.  And if you want to take a quick stroll to Broad Run, it’s only a handful of steps into the woods.

Lastly, here are a few important notes about this lovely home.  It has recently had the HVAC, hot water heater and roof replaced.  It has no HOA tie in with cable and internet, so you can contract with whoever will service the home.  Finally, its schools include Cedar Point Elementary, Marsteller Middle and Patriot High.

Don’t wait to make an appointment to see this one.  Call me today.  No One Knows Braemar Better!

Just Sold: Gorgeous Yardley Model in Braemar for $505,000

Just Sold: Gorgeous Yardley Model in Braemar for $505,000

When I listed 9996 Broadsword Drive for $499,000 on August 29th, I didn’t expect the market to react immediately.  It was a Tuesday, coming out of summer and into Labor Day weekend.  Definitely not what I expected to be an optimal time to list.  This home taught me that when you put a tip top home on the market, priced correctly, the market will grab it regardless as to when it is listed.

We had two showings, resulting in two separate buyers within twenty-four hours.  Having the ability to act quickly, the buyer who submitted first truly got one of the best kept homes in the neighborhood.

My sellers had taken every pre-listing note.  They painted over their colors and did all neutral.  They installed new carpet.  And they removed a bunch of furniture to show the house, not their stuff.  It worked.

This one settled today for $505,000.  The seller was happy to give $5,000 in closing cost help when the buyers upped the price to accommodate that.  It was a smooth transaction. And tonight, the best news is that the new home owners are smiling from ear to ear in their new home.  I know because I met the new owners when I took off the lockbox tonight.  Those smiles, and the fantastic review my sellers left for me on Zillow, made this otherwise horrible day a very good twist.  

If you want to know how this most recent sale will affect your Braemar home’s value, give me a call at 703-402-0037.   Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
