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!
