Just Listed: Move-In Ready Yardley Model for $675,000

Just Listed: Move-In Ready Yardley Model for $675,000

Welcome to 12607 Cessford Drive in Braemar. This Yardley model is freshly painted, has new carpet and LVP (luxury vinyl plank flooring) on the upper level and an on trend kitchen with white cabinets, granite counters/island and stainless steel appliances. Move right in.

The Yardley model is one of the most popular floor plans for a mid-sized single family home in Braemar..and with good reason. The main level floor plan gives a slight twist to the typical Northern Virginia colonial. Formal living room and dining room are offset from one another, not open to each other. When you enter the foyer, the living room is the left, formal dining room around the staircase and to the right, and family room beyond the staircase ahead.

The kitchen contains a dining area/breakfast nook and is open to the family room. This configuration is very pleasing to buyers looking for an open concept floor plan.

Perhaps the best feature of the Yardley model is the upper level bedrooms, particularly when it has the fourth bedroom. The owner’s suite is always going to be the largest. It is no disappointment here. Two walk-in closets and an attached bathroom with soaking tub, dual sinks and stall shower give you all you need without eating up valuable space.

The smallest of the secondary bedrooms is still generous in size at eleven feet by thirteen feet. It is the fourth bedroom, originally an option for the new construction buyers, that is huge. It rvials the size of the owner’s suite at fourteen feet by thirteen feet.

Downstairs, a partially finished basement is home to a large recreation space. Laundry room is located just off the basement landing. More space can be finished (a den and full bathroom) or keep it the way it is and enjoy plenty of storage.

The lot is the part the sellers enjoyed the most. Having no next door neighbors on Cessford itself, this lot enjoys more privacy than most. It is situated near a gas line easement on the north side, making having another home impossible. To the east side, there just wasn’t enough room to build another home. Enjoy quiet nights on the deck. The rise of the lot works as a privacy buffer.

This Yardley model is listed for $675,000. Recent improvements not yet mentioned include a new front door and new slider with built-in blinds in 2022; a new roof in 2021, and new water heater and furnace in 2019. The a/c is not original, having been replaced at some point in the past, but not within the last five years. Great news is that it is still humming along.

If you would like to see this home, please get in touch with me for a tour. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

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

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 and Nearly Under Contract in Braemar: 12146 Millbill Court for $495,800

Just Listed in Braemar: 12146 Millbill Court for $495,800

When sellers in Braemar ask me when is the best time to list their homes, my answer is some variation of, “When no one else is listing.”  That’s usually fall to late winter.  Believe it or not, our fall and late winter markets are full of demand.  And with few houses to choose from, the sellers listing at those times do very well and go under contract very quickly…that is if they are priced right and show well.

The sellers of 12146 Millbill sure did take my advice.  They decided to list on the last day of February (2019.)  Believe me, they had their doubts.  The aesthetics of the lawns, trees and shrubs are not great this time of year.  Add in a snow forecast that turns to cold drizzle and any seller could talk themselves of out listing until the lovely, warm months of April, May or June.  But the point is not how great the outside looks, but how many buyers are competing the few homes on the market.

Priced at $495,800, this three finished level, cul-de-sac lot home in Braemar had seven showings in the first twenty-four hours on the market and had three offers in hand! . Take a look at the virtual tour and you’ll see why.

If you have a single family home in Braemar you want to sell, NOW is the time.  Give me a call and let me help you maximize your profit with very little time on the market.  Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!

While two previous buyers have fallen in love with this home’s charms since hitting the market on August 4th (2015,) the Short Sale process found them losing their faith.  I’m here to tell you that this Short Sale WILL close.  So if you are willing to wait 90 days for the coordination of getting approval letters from both Short Sale banks, this could be the next place you call home.
