This 30-year-old, renovated colonial house is one example of an available home for purchase below the average Fairfax County price. In March, $711,379 was the average sold price of a single-family home in the county, according to the RealEstate Business Intelligence’s Monthly Market Statistics report.
The classic home features a 5-year-old sunroom and a patio that extend across the rear of the house facing the springtime landscape in the fenced yard. Walls of windows stand between the slanted ceiling and laminate floor in the sunroom. A sliding-glass door opens to the family room, which displays a wall of built-in bookshelves and cabinets.
The adjoining breakfast area faces the sunroom through a wood-framed window seat. The breakfast nook is also open to the tiled kitchen that features granite counters and black appliances installed last year.
The rear family room also adjoins the front dining room with crown molding and chair rail. Off the dining room, the home’s entrance hall then leads back to the kitchen.
On the opposite side of the foyer, a living room stretches the length of the house and includes a brick fireplace. Hardwood floors, crown molding and multipaned windows continue through most of this level. A powder room in the entrance hall faces the stairway.
Occupying a third of the upper story, the master suite features a front bedroom with crown molding and hardwood floors; an adjoining, rear walk-in closet; vanity counter; and master bath. The other three bedrooms share a hallway bath.
Stairs descend to the unfinished basement.
The brick exterior displays the classic, colonial style; shuttered, multipaned windows frame the pillared entrance door. A side-loading, two-car garage leads from the laundry area to the family room. The Fairfax Corner shopping center is less than 3 miles away. The public schools are Willow Springs Elementary, Lanier Middle and Fairfax High.
