First time on the market in over 40 years! Amazing value for this expanded and updated home in the sought after Westover Park Neighborhood of N Arlington with views of trees/green space. There is very little turnover on this street, which makes this a great opportunity for the soon to be new owner. Rarely available main level family room and master bedroom/bath addition, and many recent updates make this spacious home very appealing for the savvy buyer. This 4 bedroom, 3 bath home is situated on over 1/4 acre lot and only 1.1 miles to the Ballston Metro, under 1 mile to the Westover Village for shops, library, restaurants, and farmers market, 1/2 block to a private school, easy access to multiple Parks and located directly across the street from the W&OD/Custis Trail. Notable features include hardwood floors in living/dining room and 2nd floor, dual zone HVAC (2019/2013), new roof and siding (2011), new hot water heater (2012), new washer/dryer (2012), new sump pump (2017), new smoke detectors (2012), updated windows, recessed lighting, Nest thermostats, living room with gas fireplace, new granite tile and mantle, eat-in kitchen opens to the dining area and offers tons of cabinet space, some new appliances, modern Corian counters, and brushed chrome hardware. Main floor family room addition has tons of charm and character and boasts vaulted ceiling with skylight, brick wall, cozy wood stove, Anderson windows and sliding doors leading to the huge rear yard and deck. The Master Bedroom suite is located off the family room and includes vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, walk-in closet and a secondary closet, access to rear deck and a new luxurious bathroom with glass shower door and custom shower system (2019). As you reach the 2nd floor you'll notice hardwood flooring throughout, 3 spacious bedrooms each with generous closet space and low profile ceiling fans, deep linen closet and a 2nd full bathroom. The finished lower level features heated ceramic tile floors in both the recreational room and full bathroom each with separate thermostats, double laundry closet, storage closets and utility room. The large 3rd full bathroom offers ceramic tile floors and shower with glass door and granite vanity. The huge rear yard is one of the largest in the neighborhood - over 1/4 acre!
