Have you ever had frozen custard at the Dairy Godmother? It's good. This house reminds me of a cool dessert on a warm day: refreshing, delicious, and fun to share with friends. ****** Refreshing: to see the care, thought, and attention to the details (custom wood shutters, flower boxes, reading nooks, cook's corner) and the outdoors invited in (huge picture window in the living room). ****** Delicious: while I don't recommend eating the house, you will want to sample some of what grows outside (5 varieties of apples, peaches, thornless blackberries for kids of all ages, vegetables for everyone else, aromatic herbs) and you will certainly create something delicious in the gorgeous, renovated kitchen that features stainless steel appliances, soft-close cabinets, soapstone countertops, and a blackboard wall. ****** Fun: custom kid's bedroom artwork is playful, and neighbors outside will also ask to play (dinner? drinks on the flagstone patio? go for a jog along the river?). ****** Let's mention that yard again: privacy trees, lush grass, flagstone for fresh air dining and grilling, garden boxes for flowers and vegetables, crepe myrtle, azaleas, daylilies, crocus, daffodils, and a butterfly garden in front. You'll want to bring a camera so it lasts longer: enjoy the ultimate cottage garden feeling. The sellers have loved it, still love it, and will always love it. ****** On the practical side, know that the roof is brand new (2020), AC is in great shape (2014), water heater is also (2015), and new custom gutter covers and new custom window bubbles keep the interior dry. Upstairs, enjoy an updated bathroom and extra storage space. In the lower level, you'll find plenty of living space, a thoughtfully finished laundry area with custom cabinetry, and a renovated full bathroom. ****** This home is located on a quiet cul de sac with a service road with local traffic. Parking is easy with one space "reserved" in front of the house and visitor parking along the median. ****** Outside your door is Del Ray, Old Town, Potomac Yards (shopping, groceries, movies, restaurants), National Landing (some big company named after a rain forest), and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (long name, short runway). We know that no real estate is perfect. But this is pretty close in a lot of important ways. ****** Many will enjoy their visit. Only one will stay. ****** Be sure to see the interactive floor plan, garden video, and video walk through. **
