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.

Just Listed:  6 Bedroom/5.5 Bathroom Canterbury for $549,000

10188 Broadsword Drive, Bristow VA listed on April 18, 2014 for $549.000

One of the largest single family homes you can own in Braemar is a Canterbury.  And with over 5,400 square feet of finished living space, this is one of the largest Canterbury models in the neighborhood.  Let’s start on the main level.

Dining Room--10188 Broadsword

Living Room--10188 Broadsword

Stepping in the front door you enter the foyer, with formal living and dining rooms flanking the grand center hall.  In this particular home, the formal living room is to the right as you step inside.  And separated by French doors is the study, which the current owners are using as one of the coolest bar areas I’ve ever seen.  They’ve affectionately named it the voodoo lounge.  This study has an exit to the center hall as well.  The formal dining room has a pass through a Butler’s Pantry into the kitchen.  This is where the every day living happens.Study (Voodoo Lounge)---10188 Broadsword


Kitchen has a large island, tons of cabinet, counter and pantry space, a built-in desk, breakfast room and a family room…all open to one another.  You’ll enjoy the gas fireplace in the family room on cold winter nights.  For warmer weather enjoyment, step outside from the family room or breakfast room to the large wood deck.  Despite being situated on a corner lot, this home has a very nice sized back yard, some of which has been covered in mulch for minimal maintenance.  Just down the steps from the deck is a hot tub you can enjoy in any weather…even a snowy night.

Family Room--10188 Broadsword

Main level also has a mud room where the two car garage enters into the house.  A great place to kick off your shoes and hang up your coat.  Adjacent to the mud room is the laundry room.

Owner's Suite--10188 Broadsword

Soaking Tub--10188 Broadsword

The second level is where find the majority of the bedrooms, most notably the palatial owner’s suite.  Fitting furniture in here is not a problem.  Owner’s bedroom steps up to the two walk-in closets and a luxury bathroom where the focal point is the jetted, soaking tub, framed by a vanity on each side.  There is also a stall shower and water closet.  All but on of the three remaining bedrooms on the second level are attached to a bathroom.  However, a Jack and Jill style bathroom connecting to a bedroom on one side and hall on the other solves bathroom access for that lone bedroom.

Up another flight of stair you go and you will find the cherry sitting atop this magnificent home.  A loft with a small open area, bedroom and full bathroom.  A perfect princess suite or even another home office.

Loft ---10188 Broadsword

The basement is comprised of one large recreation space, a finished bedroom with a dual entry full bathroom.  It has walk-out stairs for egress.  And believe it or not, there is unfinished space for storage.

The challenge to the buyer of this home is that it is a Short Sale and requires bank approval on a short loan balance pay off.  Best estimate is that this would take a minimum of ninety days.  Are you willing to wait three months for a house of this size?  If so, call me for a tour.  No One Knows Braemar Better!
