Great location in beautiful, safe Lyon Village! Offering the best of both worlds, this 4 bed, 2 bath home is nestled in a lovely residential neighborhood, but is less than a 10-minute walk to the Clarendon Metro Station, bus stops, restaurants, bars, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, the Clarendon Farmers Market, the Clarendon Market Common, and other shopping. Enter the home to the bright and airy living room with its huge bay window and elegant wood-burning fireplace, creating a warm atmosphere. Off the living room is a custom home office with French doors, built-in oak bookshelves, and a clever, hidden door leading into the closet of an adjacent room. The eat-in kitchen has granite countertops and modern, white cabinets. Hardwood floors grace the main floor, which also includes a full bath. Downstairs is a vast finished basement with a family room perfect for relaxing and unwinding after a long day. It also includes a full bath and a great bonus room outfitted with cabinets, sink, and ceramic tile, making it an excellent space for crafts or other hobbies! Outside is a large deck great for hosting a summertime cookout as well as a shed for storing yard equipment, bikes, and other gear. The house faces the Kirkwood Road Neighborhood Park. An easy, pleasant walk leads to two different public parks with tennis and basketball courts, playgrounds, ~spraygrounds,~ and the local YMCA. A dream for commuters, the house is less than a 10-minute walk from the Clarendon Metro Stop on the Orange and Silver Lines. It is also within walking distance of bus stops, including Arlington Transit Bus 42 with service to the Pentagon. For drivers, the property offers a two-car (end to end) driveway and plenty of street parking. It is less than 2 minutes to Route 66 (leading to Dulles Airport and points west) and the scenic George Washington Parkway South (leading to DC, Reagan National Airport, Crystal City and Alexandria). For those who prefer biking or running, the home has easy access to the Custis trail, which is a 70-mile non-motorized corridor connected to both the W&OD Railroad Regional Park Trail and the Mount Vernon Trail. It allows for a safe bike commute to any major area, including the Pentagon, Georgetown, downtown, and others. For those looking for an oasis in the city, the trail passes by Roosevelt Island, which offers peaceful hiking trails just moments away from downtown DC. This great location also offers access to the best schools in the area, including Taylor Elementary School with a rating of 9 out of 10 on greatschools.org. The high school is Washington-Liberty, one of the best in the nation, with a 95.68 out of 100 by U.S News and World Report. The Arlington Science Focus School, available on a lottery basis, is a short walk from the front door and rates a 10 on greatschools.org. This is a truly special home, with its well-maintained property, easy access to major areas, and world-class schools. It will not last long! Contact us today for more information!
