This gorgeous corner lot Colonial is lovingly updated and maintained. The tax records show 2332 sq. ft., but that does not account for the fully finished basement. Total livable sq. ft. is 3,573. Two car garage is another 471 sq. ft. At the corner of Riverside Road and Lakeshire Drive it is located in the heart of the Riverside community. The house is in easy walking distance of Stratford Landing Elementary School and Carl Sandburg Middle School within the West Potomac High School District. There is quick and easy access to the Richmond Highway shopping corridor and the George Washington Parkway for easy commutes. The Capital Beltway is a ten minute drive - as is the Huntington Metro (Yellow Line). Mount Vernon Hospital and Fairfax County Police and Fire are all less just a mile away. George Washington's Mount Vernon is just a 10 minute drive - and the property sits on land that was once part of the Mount Vernon Estate. For cyclists, the Mount Vernon bike trail is nearby. This property has 5 distinct living areas (4 inside and 1 outside), 5 bedrooms, and 3.5 baths. The front door entry has hardwood floors leading to the formal living room on the left and formal dining room to the right. The dining room with chair rail and crown molding leads to the spacious kitchen with center island cook top - all done is black granite. Stainless appliances include a double oven. The kitchen floor is tiled. A breakfast nook overlooks the manicured back yard. For convenience, the laundry room is also off the kitchen, as is access to the two car garage. Also adjacent to the kitchen is the main level half bath. Carpeted stairs to the upstairs bedrooms and fully finished basement are at the back of the house. From the kitchen, past the half bath and the stairway is a family room with fireplace, opening to a breathtaking glass enclosed sun room with two skylights. Sliding glass doors between the family room and sun room offer a room divider if desired. A step down from the sun room leads to a furnished outdoor pergola perfect for relaxation and entertaining overlooking the fenced backyard. A small shed offers storage for outdoor essentials. From the main floor down the carpeted stairway is the fourth expansive living area - the carpeted large family room in the basement, complete with built-in book shelves. A door leads to a stairwell and the outdoors. A small room behind the family room is perfect for a craft room or additional storage - and behind bi-fold doors in that room you'll find the Central A/C and water heater. Off the basement family room is a fifth large bedroom with full bathroom. It is perfect as a guest room or in-law suite. Upstairs on the second level is the Master bedroom and three other bedrooms. All the upstairs bedrooms have lighted ceiling fans and lighted closets. A full bath is available to the 3 upstairs bedrooms. The Master bedroom has its own bathroom with walk-in closet. A fold down step ladder in the Master Bedroom closet leads to ample storage space in a fully insulated attic with exhaust fan. The two car garage is on the side- accessed off Lakeshire Drive. The driveway is concrete with parking for 3 vehicles. The garage also has a pull down step ladder for storage access. The garage also has plenty of shelving that will convey. The lawn and grounds have been beautifully maintained - which only adds to the allure of this property! Please take a moment and take a virtual Matterport 3D tour of the property!
