Recent market activity has dictated a large price reduction. One of the largest split foyers in Cardinal Forest (over 3,000 square feet of living space on two levels), you will love the expansive open floor plan filled with natural light. Along with main level living and dining rooms, the enormous downstairs family room, complete with 12' wet bar and stone fireplace, provides excellent space for entertaining or just plain relaxing. Under the carpet on the entire main level are hardwood floors. The five bedrooms enable versatile options for use as a home gym or office. A unique feature is the second stairway that provides a larger footprint than many other split foyer homes and grants convenient access from the oversized garage to the kitchen and from the kitchen to the laundry/utility room. The deck situated off the formal dining room is shaded in the evening and perfect for enjoying the natural beauty of the neighborhood. Since taking occupancy of this house the owners have invested in numerous significant upgrades including a completely new kitchen, upgrades to all three bathrooms, tiling and decorating the utility room, and renovating the deck. They have also made other minor improvements such as decorating several rooms, installing a new modern water boiler, and landscaping. The kitchen was remodeled from scratch with larger cabinets, a marble work surface, new stove and microwave, improved lighting, and an attractive tiled floor. The master bathroom has been given a tiled floor and walls, and the shower opened up to be roomy with an in-wall shelf for bath toiletries. It also features underfloor heating – a welcome luxury in the winter months. The other two bathrooms have been retiled with a new shower downstairs and new bathtub upstairs. The utility room floor was replaced with a tiled surface and redecorated, and much of the deck woodwork was replaced and refinished to be weather-resistant. The Cardinal Forest subdivision is close to the metro in Springfield and the Rolling Road VRE station is about 2 miles away. There is direct access to Lake Accotink (path is about 1/4 mile from the front door) with its 4+ miles of trails picnic facilities and more.
