A find in Fairfax! Just off Rt 202 - Peaceful, park-like enclave of tree-trimmed streets, winding sidewalks and lovely, landscaped homes. Low-lying ornamental tree anchors corner of lawn and hedges front this red brick/Williamsburg blue shutters expanded 4BRs/2.5 bath home, while driveway leads to detached oversized garage. Perks galore, from upgraded kitchen/bath to generous addition to expansive, hardscaped, fenced-in backyard! Step into LR that is large, confirmed when one realizes collection of furnishings aptly fit offering easy, intentional style, and dual window spans front wall spilling sunlight into room. LR is a step-above with floor-to-ceiling, wall of custom built-ins offering instant storage and beauty, while hardwood floors are beneath carpeting in both LR and adjacent DR. Crown molding, chair rail and splash of subtle striped wallpaper create simple yet sophisticated ambiance in DR and dual window on front wall provides symmetry with LR. DD into kitchen is understated detail that offers DR seclusion and did we mention there are HARDWOODS under the carpets! Updated kitchen speaks volumes of elegance with solid cherry cabinets, granite countertops and black appliances including Bosch DW. Extra-large ceramic tiles on floor are pared down to create ceramic tile backsplash with added accent of vertical ceramic tile glass backsplash behind stove, and horizontal ceramic tile glass border running perimeter of kitchen. Angled sink located in front of window was an option when the house was built. It is mirrored on opposite wall with angled oven offering interest and balance, 3 eyeball lights/2 undercabinet lights keep kitchen bright and big pass-thru to addition links rooms. Behind kitchen is stand-out grand addition. No extra effort needed to make space feel inviting! Sprawling FR and morning room are seamlessly connected with hardwood floors stretching across both rooms. Corner of double windows presents sun-infused dining nook and looks to picturesque backyard. Glass pane door adds natural light to already airy room and wall opposite offers ideal spot for curio cabinet/hutch. PR with brick-style floor and cherry vanity is off dining nook. Glorious bay window with custom-made pulldown shade and deep ledge commands back wall in FR offering front row views to changing seasons, while floor-to-ceiling oversized Colonial brick wall with raised hearth is tucked in corner and is backdrop for Vermont casting wood stove. This room is bound to be heart of the home! FR wraps around to LR, completing circular floor plan. Steps to unfinished LL are lined with built-in shelving, creating easy-to-grab pantry, while LL boasts under-the-steps storage, 2 sizable rooms, and W & D/utility sink. Note updated heater/hot water/French drain/sump pump (within last 5 yrs). Landing with hall closet precedes steps up to hardwood floored 2nd level with partially floored pull-down attic. All 3 secondary BRs boast crown molding and roomy closets, while one BR touts striking floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves and expanded walk-in closet. All 4 bedrooms have lighted ceiling fans. Square-basin pedestal sink adds fresh twist on retro-loved hall bath with tub/shower, wall cabinet and plantation shutters. Primary BR is sweeping, encompassing entire width of home, and features 2 sets of dual windows, dual ceiling fans, and dual-shelf DD closet. Charming retreat area is designated recharging space! Renovated ceramic tile floored private, primary bath delivers the drama! Square basin pedestal sink is paired with 2 glass-paned white wall cabinets and mix of slate blue/white subway tile is blended with ceramic glass border to offer stunning effect. Backyard is an artistic delight! Dual entrance, slightly elevated brick paver terrace touts brick sitting wall with down-lighting and edged with lush landscaping and evergreen trees, while separate circular brick pad stands ready for grill. Home is 1 mile from Rt. 202, mins. to I-95, 20 mins. to Phil. Airport!
