Just Listed: Five Bedroom Single Family Home in Braemar for $499,000

When it comes to Yardley floor plan, I’ve listed and sold my fair share since becoming a Braemar Real Estate Agent in 2005.  Seems they offer the perfect amount of space for a single family home.  Not too big, not too small.  They fit like a glove.

This Yardley at 9996 Broadsword Drive is my favorite one to date and it just hit the market priced at $499,000.  These sellers did every bit of listing preparation I suggested, including a fresh coat of neutral paint throughout and new carpet. The formal living and dining rooms, as well as the foyer, powder room and main level hallways are done in a very durable laminate hardwood.  It’s all the beauty of hardwood floors, but holds up much better to every day life.  

The sellers, original owners, also opted to have the box bay window in the formal living room, which adds some architectural interest.  And while traditional colonials have their formals rooms right across from one another, the Yardley offsets them.  The dining room is a little further back from the foyer than the living room.  Still, the location of the dining room is perfect as it passes through to the kitchen, making formal entertaining easy.

While we are on the subject of the kitchen, it is open to a breakfast nook, and beyond a knee wall, open to the family room as well.  All of these rooms were extended at the time of construction.  This gives the kitchen an island and plenty of room for the cook to maneuver.  With granite counters, light cabinets, tile backsplash and ceramic tile flooring it aesthetically pleasing.  The gas cook top, double wall ovens, microwave and counter space make it a cook’s dream.

Everyday meals are likely to be enjoyed in the breakfast nook, positioned between the kitchen and family room.

The family room has built-in bookcases, palladian windows and opens to the screened porch.  In the colder months, you’ll love the gas fireplace.  And this room being carpeted adds to warmth of the space.

Upstairs is where you find the master suite, three secondary bedrooms and the laundry room.  The master suite doesn’t disappoint with two walk-in closets, complete with organizers, and attached full bathroom with dual sinks/vanity and separate tub and shower.

The remaining three bedrooms are very good sized, but the fourth bedroom is especially expansive.  All three share the second full bathroom with hall access.

A fully finished basement gives you plenty of recreation space, complete with surround sound and wet bar, a fifth bedroom and third full bathroom.  And unlike some of the single family homes currently on the market in Braemar, it has a walk-up basement exit.

If you aren’t sold on this Yardley in Braemar yet, I’ve saved what I think is the best for last–the outdoor spaces.  A screened porch, open air composite deck (complete with gas grill with permanent natural gas line coming from the house) sit atop a well manicured and fully fenced yard.  The fence is also virtually maintenance free being made of vinyl.

This home is a suburban dream home, located in the Patriot High School district and in the amenity filled community of Braemar.  Homes like this don’t last long when they go on the market.  Call for your tour today.

9684 Tarvie Circle, Bristow, VA

If you looked up 9684 Tarvie Circle online, you may see the status as “pending.”  In fact, I just looked it up on Zillow and that’s exactly what I saw.  However, I am here to tell you that you still have an opportunity to make this charming home in Braemar your own.

While the owners of this Annan model by Brookfield Homes accepted an offer from a buyer with a home sale contingency, a buyer making an offer without that contingency could knock that first contract out.  So if you don’t have a home to sell and have been trouble finding the the perfect four bedroom home in Braemar you should check this one out.

Living Room to the Right as you enter Foyer

Dining Room

Priced at $415,000, it offers a lovely floor plan.  The main level has the formal living and dining rooms on either side of the front entrance.  My favorite part of these rooms is the patio doors giving you three entrances to the front porch, two of which have screens that essentially make them very large windows for outstanding cross breezes.

Kitchen open to Breakfast Room

The kitchen has a modern appeal with brand new stainless steel appliances nestled among white cabinetry.  It is open to the morning room, which shares a dual sided fireplace with the family room in the back of the home.

Breakfast Room

Family Room

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, two bathrooms and laundry room.  One combination of bedroom and bathroom is the master suite, which has a gigantic walk-in closet and attached luxury bathroom.  The remaining bedrooms are all generously sized.

The basement is a blank slate for you to finish as you like.  The good news is that you can easily finish it with an additional full bathroom and plenty of recreation space and still have unfinished room for storage.

The rear entry garage is a great place for the tinkerer in the family.  Eleven recessed lights make this a great workshop.

Back Yard

Very little yard maintenance is another selling feature.  Yet, there’s plenty of community maintained common area to enjoy in front of this home.  Even a playground for the little ones.



Don’t miss this opportunity to express your interest in 9684 Tarvie Circle.  It is not Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037too late.

The Victoria floor plan by Ryan Homes is one of the most popular homes in Braemar, or any community where Ryan Homes has built for that matter.  Once you step inside it is easy to see why.

13625 Chapeltown Mews in  Braemar

This particular Victoria is located at 13625 Chapeltown Mews in Bristow and starts with great curb appeal courtesy of the side load garage.  The two story foyer gives you a few things to take in as soon as you enter.  The angled staircase to the second level graciously sweeps in front of you.  To the right, you notice the formal living room.  To the left, a hall that takes you to the family room/kitchen area.  Let’s start to the right and work our way around.

Living Room--13625 Chapeltown

The formal living room faces north, so there is never going to be glaring sunlight beating in the windows.  This formal room is also open to the formal dining room, which captures the movement of the sun across the southern sky.

The formal dining room passes through to the kitchen.  This is the heart of the home.  Plenty of cabinet and granite counter top space is yours.  Center island is where you find the ever popular gas cook top.  Microwave and one oven are built in to the wall.  The counter top configuration also allows for a built-in desk, perfect to be able to cook a meal and supervise homework.

Kitchen--13625 Chapeltown

My favorite room is the morning room, and with all that southern exposure in the Palladian window, who wouldn’t love it?   If you wanted to grill dinner, step out to the wood deck or even down to the patio.

The family room is also open to the kitchen, which is a feature of modern floor plans that pleases everyone.
