Just Listed: End Unit, Garage Townhouse for $384,900 in Braemar

Today I hit the go button for this beautiful end unit, garage townhouse in Braemar located at 9619 Innerwick PlaceThe sellers contacted me last summer about listing their home and that is when we discussed home preparation and what they could do to get ready for market.  Mind you, at the time they had no immediate plan to list.  It is never too early to consult with your Listing Agent and get solid advice on what projects to undertake and which ones are a waste of time and money.

In the case of the preparation that was done to ready this three bedroom, two full bath, two half bath townhouse, the list is simple, but what an impact it made.  For starters, the sellers put in new carpet and neutralized the interior paint.  The main level hardwood flooring was a great selling feature, but had some wear from the sun beating in those front south facing windows.  A total refinish of the entire main level’s hardwood flooring to a walnut color was completed a week before hitting the market.  Those floors are as smooth and shiny as a bowling alley floor now.

With a two level bump out, this townhouse benefits from expansive recreation space on the lowest/entry level and a family room on the second/main level off the kitchen.  Normally, these townhouses would stop with that kitchen and breakfast nook area, leaving the living and dining room space in the front of the home.  With the family room addition on the main level, the current owners were able to use the front living/dining room as a large dining room for family gatherings and game nights.

The kitchen is the heart of the main level floor plan, complete with an island and plenty of counter space.  The transition to stainless steel appliances is already underway.  Enjoy a stainless steel electric range and dishwasher.  The kitchen is open to the breakfast nook to one side and open to the family room with gas fireplace on another end.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, the master suite being one each with a walk-in closet.  While the bedroom is more than enough size wise, the bathroom boasts double sinks, a soaking tub and separate shower.

Down the hall are the secondary bedrooms.  The smallest of which, measuring a little over eight feet by 9 feet makes a perfect nursery or office.  The larger of the secondary bedroom is more generously sized at ten by ten.   The full bathroom off the hallway has a tub shower combo with a single vanity, but with extended counter space and linen closet inside the bathroom itself.  Smart!

One I the things I love about this home is the outdoor space.  Off the family room on the main level is an expansive deck that overlooks the neighboring community of Dunbarton.  It’s quite a nice view and not sun soaked, making it unusable in the summer.  On the contrary, it is a northerly exposure spending most of the day in the shade.

Below the deck and accessible by way of the basement recreation room walk out exit is a fully fenced back yard, done in the privacy board on board style, complete with a patio and large hot tub.  Ahhhhh!  Why more agents don’t show you what’s underneath the hot tub cover is beyond me.  Have a peek.

The full size washer and dryer are located in the basement behind louvered bi-fold doors. Another important, yet often overlooked convenience, is the fact that there is a bathroom on every level.  Yes, the basement and second level have powder rooms.  There need be no stairs involved in your journey to heed nature’s call.

End Unit Garage Townhouse in Braemar with Specatuclar View for Only $310,000

End Unit Garage Townhouse in Braemar with Specatuclar View for Only $310,000

View from Deck, 13042 Shenvale

It is a rare occurrence when the view from the deck of a townhouse will stop you in your tracks.  In Bristow and Gainesville, you may get a wooded view and that’s pleasing. The Deck at Sunset is the best place to be. This one takes the cake.  Sitting atop a ridge in the Tartan Hills section of Braemar, this end unit townhouse has one of the best views in the neighborhood.  Directly in front are mature trees.  Beyond the ridge, in the valley below, is a view of Dunbarton.  And beyond that is Bull Run Mountain.  It is best during sunset when you watch the sun dip below the treeline to your left.

This beauty is located off at 13042 Shenvale Circle.  One thing that makes it so spacious is the three level bump out.  The family room is huge.  The dining room is larger than you’d expect, as are the second and third bedrooms upstairs.


The main level, which is the second level in this home is where you find the kitchen, decked out in Corian counters, a pot rack hanging above the island and stainless steel appliances.  The kitchen is wide open to the gigantic family room, which is surrrouned by transom accented windows.  There’s plenty of natural light in here, but the late afternoons are when you get the golden light of the sunset.  In the winter months, you’ll love the gas fireplace.

Family Room, drenched in late afternoon sunlight


On the opposite side of the kitchen, a room to itself, is the formal dining room.  It is enhanced in size by the box bay window.  Because this is truly a separate space, you may even choose to use this room as an office or den, and have a table off of the kitchen.

There is a powder room on the main level, so you won’t have to truck up or down stairs from your main level activities just to use the bathroom.

Owner's Suite

The owner’s suite upstairs sit behind French doors.  It’s expansive with a large walk-in closet and attached bathroom.  The soaking tub, dual sinks/vanity, stall shower and linen closet, give you every convenience you could imagine in the owner’s bathroom.

Owner's Bath with Soaking Tub and Dual Sinks/Vanity

The entry level is known as the basement.  Cool marble tile is what greets you and takes you back to the Berber carpeted recreation room.  This is where you find the laundry 13042 Shenvale Circle in Braemararea.  And if you wanted to make an improvement and have a second powder room on this level, there is a rough in just for that purpose.

Basic cable and internet through RCN is included in the monthly HOA fees, as are the community amenities, trash and snow removal and road maintenance.  Community amenities include two outdoor pools, picnic pavilions, tennis courts, basketball courts, playgrounds and a community clubhouse you can rent for events.  One of the localized tot lots  is just one block away.

If you would like to see this home, give me a call.  No One Knows Braemar Better!
