The Belvedere is a Prime Location in Arlington, Virginia and an Excellent Value

The Belvedere

The Belvedere – The Belvedere has one of Arlington’s best locations in terms of both access and views. As with many condominium buildings in Arlington, there is substantial difference in views given slight changes in height or location within the building. Having said this, a large percentage of homes have exceptional views of the Iwo Jima Memorial, Washington Monument, and The Capitol.

The Belvedere has recently undergone a $4,000,000 face lift, making the building an even more attractive place for those seeking quality and convenience within the urban life style. The amenities are outstanding, with an outdoor pool, fitness center, tennis courts, library, 24-hour concierge and more. It is only three blocks from the Rosslyn Metro Station.

The Belvedere has several penthouse units which line up beautifully with a site line of Washington, D.C. From these, you get a spectacular view (even moreso at night) of Iwo Jima, the Washington Monument, and The Capitol, all lined up as if in formation.

This building has much to offer and sometimes flies below the radar screen when one discusses the quality high-rise market in Arlington. Generally, homes sell quickly here, for reasons stated above, and because listings prices have hit the market at very attractive levels, vis-a-vis the competition.

The Belvedere is a good value in general. On those occasions where one of their upper-level penthouses, with dramatic views, comes available, they are worth seeing as a lower-priced way to capture the benefits of this life style. If you have interest in The Belvedere or want to compare it to other alternatives, please feel free to call or email me.

If you are seeking a well-appointed condominium in a very convenient neighborhood, The Belvedere may be for you. For further discussion on The Belvedere or its peers, please call or email me.

2429 Silver Fox Lane Reston, Va.: Immaculate home on spacious lot in desirable Reston neighborhood

 

2429 SilverFoxFrontExterior

Silver Fox Lane is a beautiful, double cul de sac street, in a most desirable region of Reston, Virginia. The owners have upgraded this immaculate split level home to the tune of $115,000. The lot is a well groomed .65 acres on flat land, surrounded by trees and nature. This is a stable, incredible community close to shopping, schools, the Reston Town Center, and amazing walking paths meandering through wooded areas of Reston.

The home had been listed last fall for $619,000 and removed from the market at that time. With the arrival of spring in 2016, the owners have reduced the price to $585,000 and have this spotless gem showing in perfect condition.

Among the many features of the home are:

  • Two car garage.
  • Beautiful .65 acre lot
  • All windows replaced to energy-efficient thermopane.
  • Air conditioning compressor.
  • Repaved asphalt driveway.
  • New porch roof.
  • New rook installed in 2004.
  • Bath room upgrades in 2015.
  • Emergency gas generator added in 20105.

It is difficult to find this much space in a quality neighborhood in Reston at this $585,000 price tag.

I welcome all calls/texts/emails with any questions you may have on this fine home.

2007 Sarazen Place…Reston…. Space, Location, Value in Premier Reston Location

2007 Sarazen Exterior Front Shade2007 SarazenBackOf House 2007 Sarazen Master BedRoom 2007 Sarazen Kitchen to DR Very Good 2007 Sarazen FR Very good 2007 Sarazen FP Den Excel

2007 Sarazen Place is the largest floor plan available in the desired Golf Course Square community in Reston, Virginia. An end unit tucked into a nature setting, there is a buffer of trees for roughly 30 feet, before one reaches the third green of Reston National Golf Course. Many prefer to have this buffer rather than being directly on the golf course, but we will leave that preference to the buyer.

2007 Sarazen has 4 bed rooms, 3 1/2 baths, and well over 2,000 total square feet. The lower level is completely finished, including a full bath. Hardwood floors grace the entire main level and third floor, with all four bed rooms being on the top level. The kitchen is expansive, with eat-in breakfast area.

2007 Sarazen has two fireplaces and an expansive deck/patio amongst the trees in the rear of the home. A very large wooden storage shed, built in the character and style of the neighborhood, allows for seasonal storage of many household items. There are two assigned parking spaces.

2007 Sarazen is convenient to the Silver Line Metro, the Reston Town Center, and all necessary amenities/shopping. As part of the Reston experience, this is a premier listing in a desired neighborhood.

11601 Golf Course Square: Reston’s Magnificent Golf Course Town Home

DSC_0923DSC_0801 DSC_0840DSC_0816DSC_0923 DSC_0927 DSC_0816 DSC_0814

SPACE…..LIGHT……VIEWS…..

The original owners chose this magnificent lot for a simple reason: It is the best in the development.

An end unit with bump-out extensions on all three levels, 11601 Golf Course Square offers magnificent light, excess space not found in other homes, and views from the main level and two bed rooms upstairs which simply cannot be matched in this neighborhood or at this price.

The owners are in the process of moving, so please excuse the boxes and protective wrap on furniture. But you will see and feel the difference in this home: Open, airy space and a view of the fourth hole which feels as if you are teeing off yourself (or announcing the play in a whisper as the golfers tee off maybe 15 yards in front of your deck view).

If the sound of occasional chirping birds or click of a metal-headed driver bother you, then this will not be the home for you.

But if excess living space, a flood of natural light, and being surrounded by nature at its finest does appeal to you, then feel free to contact me.

Just Listed: Beautiful town home in Reston: 2163 Golf Course Drive

You have all heard way too much Realtor hype on any and all listings which hit the market. So let me be simple and authentic in every way on this one: 2163 Golf Course Drive is a remarkably beautiful home. Priced at only $415,000, this 3 bed room gem is located near the Reston National Golf Course, and is close to schools, the new metro station, and the Reston Town Center. I have recently sold homes within 100 feet of this listing at $493,000 and $480,000. Both had somewhat more square footage; both were beautifully upgraded and maintained; but neither were more upgraded or better maintained than 2163 Golf Course Drive.

They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. So allow me to paint 8,000 more words below. I welcome your inquiries and would be happy to help arrange a visit.

2371 Albot Road JUST LISTED in Deepwood Subdivision in Reston

Last year, I wrote a short piece on the Deepwood subdivision in Reston, Virginia. Approximately one mile from Reston Parkway, and two miles from the new Silver Line Metro, this area is gaining in popularity among those seeking quality homes in an exceptional community at a reasonable price.

Among Deepwood’s 343 town homes, few are as upgraded and spectacular as 2371 Albot, a home recently listed at $395,000. Many homeowners have improved their homes in Deepwood, but few to the degree of this jewel.
