WASHINGTON MONUMENT VIEW
This model, the “Alexander Spotswood,” is the only floor plan in Spy Hill that has a main-level Master Suite and a main-level washer/dryer.
Imagine yourself standing at the kitchen sink and looking at the Washington Monument!
Additionally, the kitchen features granite countertops, quality cherry cabinetry, custom ceramic back-splash wall with decorative tiles, GE Profile refrigerator with cherry doors, GE Profile dishwasher, GE Profile range hood, GE electric range, hardwood flooring, and ceiling can lights.
The washer and dryer are accessed from the kitchen, hidden behind bi-fold doors.
The space adjacent to the kitchen may be used as a breakfast room—or it may be used a small Family Room, which is how the house is being shown. There is space for a sofa and several chairs… and a small breakfast table under the TV.
Adjacent to the Family Room is a very pleasant deck… perfect for outdoor eating and relaxing. The deck, too, has a view of the Washington Monument. Invite your friends for the Fourth of July!
The deck has a retractable awning and the owners report that when the awning is extended in the summer, the Family Room is cool and shady.
Another very strong feature of the house is the main-level master suite with a large Bedroom [18x12] with crown moulding, walk-in closet outfitted by California Closets, and renovated bath with two basins, tub, and separate shower.
ELSEWHERE ON THE MAIN LEVEL
As you enter the house, the Living Room is on the right and features a wood-burning fireplace and crown and other mouldings. The Dining Room is on the left and has significant mouldings [crown, chair rail, dado]. Both rooms open to the center hall and the Dining Room opens to a ‘butler’s pantry’ area on the way to the Kitchen. The window treatments in both rooms convey.
Two large Bedrooms and renovated bath with two basins are on this level. The bedroom on the right has three closets outfitted by California Closets, while the bedroom on the left has two closets and a window seat.
The commodious Rec Room has a fireplace and access to the rear terrace. Additionally, on this level are a fourth [‘legal’] Bedroom with two windows, a full bath, great storage space, and a utility room with access to the rear.
The easy-care lot is attractively planted with trees and shrubs, some of which the sellers have planted themselves. The sellers are looking forward to taking the new buyer/s on a ‘planting tour’ of the property. The lot also features an in-ground sprinkler system, so keeping the various plantings alive and healthy is not a chore.
The house is all-brick, as opposed to brick-front like some others in Spy Hill. Note, too, that it has replacement windows.
Spy Hill is a quiet enclave with cul-de-sacs and pleasant treed views.
Nearby, however, are all the necessities… Safeway, CVS Drugstore, Target, Home Depot, Starbucks, and Barnes & Noble. It’s a very quick drive to Ballston, with Macy’s, Ballston Common with 125 shops and restaurants and multi-screen theater; and it’s easy to get to Clarendon, with Whole Foods Market, Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, Williams-Sonoma, Chico’s, Apple, and more.
Also nearby are great recreational facilities: the W&OD bike/hiking/walking/running trail is just a few blocks away at Bluemont Park, which also has nine lighted tennis courts. Also close are the Upton Hill Regional Park with swimming, mini golf, and batting cage, and the new Powhatan Springs skate park and soccer field.
Finally, for those who need to get Downtown or to the Pentagon, Rt. 50 is just a few blocks away at Manchester Street and it’s also an easy drive to I-66.
The occupants of 101 N. Liberty St. can be downtown or at Kennedy Center in 15 minutes and at National Airport in 20 minutes, and it’s a short drive, too, to Tysons Corner, home of Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Tiffany & Co., Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Ave., and more.
Arlington is generally regarded as having one of the best governments and among the best municipal services in the Metropolitan Area… coupled with one of the lowest property tax rates. Arlington is known for quality schools, shopping, and dining, and a location that is just across the Potomac from all that Washington has to offer… restaurants, theater, museums, the Mall, Capitol Hill….
The Arlington County tax record for this property is incorrect; it shows a two-bedroom house, while the house actually has four legal bedrooms.
Welcome to 101 N. Liberty Street… Washington Monument views / main-level master suite / main-level washer dryer / move-in condition… welcome home!
