Just Listed in Braemar: Expansive, Gracious Canterbury for $610,000

Located in the sought after Patriot High School district, this Canterbury model by Brookfield Homes, located at 9725 Kinloss Mews is sure to please the most discerning buyer. Enter into a foyer/center hall where hardwood floors take you through most of the main level.  Formal living and dining rooms sit on either side of the entry.  Step through the center hall, passing the main level powder room, and you find a study to your left and the kitchen area to the right.

The kitchen is truly the heart of this home.  Open to a breakfast nook and the family room beyond, this is where every day life happens.  For more formal occasions, you will love the butler’s pantry that connect the kitchen to the formal living room.

The upper level is where you find four bedrooms and three bathrooms, one each making up the expansive master suite.  Hardwood flooring in the master bedroom leads to a tiled master bathroom where you find two separate vanities, a large soaking tub, separate shower and water closet. If you didn’t feel the word luxury washing over you, take a look into the two large walk-in closets.

The remaining three bedrooms are extremely generous in size.  Second bedroom has an en-suite full bathroom.  Third bedroom connects to the third full bathroom, which is dual entry with two vanities.  Fourth bedroom has nearby hall access to the second entry of third bathroom.

If that’s not enough room for you, wait until you see the basement.  An oversized recreation area is a perfect place for games, movies or a second family room.  One of two finished dens is in use as a work out room, the other as a mother-in-law suite.  Of course, you can’t have a true mother-in-law suite without a full bathroom, which is just around the corner.  Basement boasts a walk up exit.

All this is located on a lot that faces rural farmland property and is on a cul-de-sac.  A rare lot to be sure.

If you or someone you know is interested, give me a call. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better.

One of the most impressive single family homes you can find in Braemar is a Canterbury model.  This particular Canterbury, located at 9572 Laurencekirk Place, first gets your attention with its covered front porch.  Who doesn’t enjoy a covered front porch?

Step inside and the grand center hall greets you with hardwood floors that will take you throughout the main level.  Formal living and dining rooms sit opposite each other at the entry way, just as you would expect with Northern Virginia colonial design.

Work from home, or just love a dedicated room for crafts, computer or a library?  The main level study sits in a quiet corner at the end of the center hall, separated from the distractions of the family room and kitchen area.

Speaking of the kitchen and family room, the floor plan opens right up when you step into this area of the home.  A large center island makes for easy entertaining, be it a holiday cookie decorating party, or buffet style meal for a large crowd.

Kitchen--9572 Laurencekirk

Double ovens, a gas cook top, built-in microwave and a whisper quiet Bosch dishwasher will make the cook in your family very happy.  And since the kitchen is the heart of every gathering, having it open to the family room and breakfast nook mean being part of the action won’t make a cramped kitchen.  There is plenty of space to mix and mingle here.

For formal gathering, the Butler’s Pantry that leads back through to the dining room will come in handy.  Serve your drinks and stage your food here.

Something you’ll use more frequently is the mud room, which also has a main level dedicated laundry room.  Garage enters into the mud room, laundry room on one side, gigantic pantry on the other.    This area, and the main level powder room, lend to every day convenience.

Upstairs each bedroom offers more than enough space.  The configuration of the upper level floor plan, gives unusual angles and locations of secondary bedrooms for maximum privacy.  Only one of the secondary bedrooms is not connected to a full bathroom.  There is a self-contained suite, and the other full bathroom has a hall entrance, in addition to bedroom connection.

Naturally, the master suite is as grand as you would expect in a home this size.  Over-sized for big furniture and a sitting area with room to spare,  the amount of space will not disappoint.  Step up to the two walk-in closets or to get to the luxury bathroom with two vanities, a soaking tub, separate shower and water closet.

Master Bath--9572 Laurencekirk

Recreation space in the basement is another area where you won’t run out of room.  This space is vast.  And being a walk-out basement, natural light fills the rec areas from large windows.  This walk out configurations allows the one unfinished area to be finished as a fifth bedroom.  And it would be a great guest suite, already connected to finished full bathroom.

What makes this grand colonial even better than its competitors is the rectangular back yard with a view of a tree line.  Ahhh.  Privacy.

If this is the home you’ve been waiting for, give me a call for your own private tour.  No One Knows Braemar Better!
