Just Listed:  Move-In Ready Norwood Model Carriage Home for $385,000

13174 Kirkmichael Terrace listed for $385,000 on August 15, 2015.

This three bedroom, three and a half bathroom Norwood model located at 13174 Kirkmichael Terrace underwent a cosmetic renovation before hitting the market.  All three levels were painted (including the closets,) brand new carpet put in place, the deck stain freshly applied, landscaping touched up, driveway sealed and it was professionally cleaned from bedrooms to basement before the owners would even allow photos to be taken.  This home truly is move-in ready.

Dining Room--13174 Kirkmichael

Living Room--13174 Kirkmichael

The main level is a very easy flowing floor plan.  From the foyer entry, you have a formal living and formal dining room open to one another, and the hallway overlook above.  You can even get a glimpse of the kitchen in the back to the left, and the family room in the back to the right.

Kitchen--13174 Kirkmichael

The kitchen is wide open to the family room and boasts the same hardwood floors you find in the foyer, living and dining rooms.  There is an island with an overhang, perfect to enjoy breakfast or an informal meal.  Cooks will love the fact that when they buy this house, they will be preparing their meals with a gas range.

Family Room--13174 Kirkmichael

The family room is the only carpeted part of the main level, which gives it a cozier feel.  In the cold months, you will love the gas fireplace.

Master BR--13174 Kirkmichael MBR Closet--13174 KirkmichaelMaster BA Sinks--13174 Kirkmichael

The upper level is where you find the three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one each making up the master suite.  And perhaps the most impressive aspect of the master suite is the closet built-in organization system, which conveys.  The attached bathroom boasts dual sinks/vanity.  Remaining two bedrooms, equal in size, sit on opposite sides of the second full bathroom.

Built Ins Basement--13174 Kirkmichael

Basement Rec Room--13174 Kirkmichael

The basement offers a third full bathroom and two finished recreation areas, separated by the staircase.  One side has a wall of built-in bookshelves which instantly makes me think it would be a great home office.  The laundry is located in the unfinished area of the basement where you will also find additional storage space, or a room you can frame and finish as you like.

Back Yard Walk Way--13174 Kirkmichael

Step out the walk up exit from the basement and you will be lead into the backyard and around to the wood deck on a paver walkway.  The back yard is fully fenced, with a gate that allows you to drive your car to the detached garage in the rear of home.  And the entry to the kitchen, just up those deck stairs, makes bringing groceries into the home a snap.

Deck--13174 Kirkmichael

This home faces south, so the sun moves over top and in front from sunrise to sunset.  That makes the back yard space a little cooler and more enjoyable.

Outstanding, Custom Norwood Model in Braemar–Just Listed for $378,000

Outstanding, Custom Norwood Model in Braemar–Just Listed for $378,000

If I were to stock a shelf with a home that would be a great find for a Bristow buyer, just in time for the holidays, this would be it:  12461 Iona Sound Drive in Braemar. 12461 Iona Sound Drive in Bristow, For Sale for $378,000.  (Listed December 1, 2013.) The image that sticks with me about the Carriage homes on this street is one that happened in 2004.  My husband and I were driving around, looking at Christmas lights and checking out Braemar as a potential place to call home.  With that touch of white snow and the holiday decorations on these homes, I really felt like I was under a tree, wandering around a Christmas tree village come to life.

This particular Carriage home has so much to offer.  It is a Norwood model, but has some flairs to the floor plan that you won’t find on any other Norwood in Braemar because they are custom.  Let’s save the custom flairs and talk about the basics, which are anything but basic.

Cozy up by the fireplace in this contemporary feeling family room.

The main level, with its formal living and dining rooms, and open concept kitchen-breakfast nook-family room is done up with hardwood floors.  A few upgrades/extras to mention are the bay window in the formal living room, plantation shutters and gas fireplace in the family room, and granite counters complemented by white cabinets and a hanging pot rack over the island.  The main level powder room was also upgraded with 12 x 12 porcelain tile, new pedestal sink and new “throne” to match the design.

The Kitchen and open floor plan make this home easy for entertaining.

Right off of the kitchen is where you’ll find the first of the custom features of this charmer.  An enclosed porch that has windows that can be slid open to allow fresh air through the screens.  Although this room is not heated or cooled, it is one you will enjoy more months out of the year, than not.  It also has two exits.  One to the composite deck right beside it and one to a path that leads you to the detached two car garage.  Standing out here you’ll also notice two things:  you have a completely fenced, sizable back yard, and the home site backs to trees.

The Master Suite has hardwood floors and custom window treatments.

The Master Bathroom is bright with two skylights shining down.

Upstairs is where you find all three bedrooms.  Another upgrade to point out is the hardwood staircases.  The one taking you to the bedrooms and the one leading you to the basement.  This is quite unusual in Braemar Carriage homes.  In fact, the upstairs hallway and the Master Bedroom are graced with hardwood floors too.  The Master Suite offers a generous sized room, a large walk-in closet and a luxury bathroom with soaking tub, separate shower, dual sinks/vanity and above you, for light even on a cloudy day, two skylights.

Second & Third Bedrooms are the same size.

The second and third bedrooms are equal in size and a bit larger than what you would find in the neighborhood townhouses.  They sit across from one another with the second full bathroom sitting between them.

There is a bunch of space for whatever you want to do in the basement.

Do whatever you want with the basement space.  There is a high quality carpet that will last you for many years.  And the way the basement is laid out, you have essentially two recreation areas separated by the center staircase.  One side comes with the entertainment center, TV included.  Also in the basement is a den that could be used as guest room, office or even a small workout area.  The laundry in most Braemar Carriage homes is in the unfinished basement area.  Not here.  There’s a separate room with hardwood flooring, plenty of space and plenty of lighting.  There is still a bit of storage space in the unfinished area, and a washtub sink.

The lot is one of the best things about this particular Carriage home.  It backs to woods, with garage entrance by private, shared alley.

The windows in the home were replaced in 2012.  It also has a new hot water heater and by the time the home conveys to its next owner, the shingles on the roof will be replaced.  And another, but very important detail that the owners took care of was taking the sump pump drain out past the garage so it isn’t perpetually dumping water down by the foundation wall and spitting it back out again.

If I could, I’d put a big red bow on this home.  It’s going to make someone very happy, and maybe even before the end of the year.  For a tour, give me a call.

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.
