*The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.* -Maya Angelou. New adjusted price on this beautiful turnkey home nestled on a prized 12,154 sf lot. The home was re-imagined, renovated and expanded recently with strong influences of living a simpler life down on the Louisiana Bayou. All the work has been done for you from the large private front porch to the level backyard paradise with play space and entraining deck area. Upscale details like gas lanterns, which flank the glass panel front door, to the designer kitchen granite can be found throughout the home. The wonderful large front porch offers commanding vistas, privacy and easily becomes an extended living space. It's the perfect spot to enjoy an outdoor dinner or watch the sun set on another day. Inside are spacious rooms, hardwood floors, two wood burning fireplaces, and nine-foot ceilings in the living room. No detail was over looked from the placement of the windows, to the built-in knee walls and living room fireplace surround with wood storage. Thought was even given to create a space where an owner could install an elevator in the future accessing all three levels. The kitchen is a chef's dream with designer appliances, gas cooking and built-in center island with granite top. A perfect spot to gather, spread out and share the experience of creating a meal. The island also serves as a great place for entertaining or pulling up a stool and grabbing a quick meal. The walk-in pantry, with window and built-ins, provides the perfect convenient location to store extra food, seldom used small appliances and serving pieces. The dining room is embassy sized and a room that can easily host holiday meals and lively dinner parties. During the cooler months the working wood fireplace adds a touch of warmth. Off the kitchen is a family room with views of the rear yard. The painted brick circular floor area makes a perfect spot for a children's home theater, or a small stage for a night of karaoke with friends and family. Off the family room is the large level fenced rear yard with private patio and plenty of space to run and play. Mature trees provide shade and cooler temps for outdoor summer gatherings. Upstairs are four bedrooms, three full baths and laundry room. The primary bedroom spans the front of the home, offers over-sized windows that allow natural sunlight to fill the room, a vaulted ceiling and is a true sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The owners bath features white marble double sinks, a separate shower, a separate soaking tub and sophisticated finishes creating a spa like feel. There is a large owner's walk-in closet with built-in shelving with custom closet organizers to keep everything in its place. Bedroom #2 has its own private bath and offers a large second attached room overlooking the rear yard. An in-law suite, home office or whatever? Its uses are only limited to your imagination! The lower level provides the fifth bedroom, additional space with built-in storage, a utility room and a side door exit to the year yard. This level also serves as direct access to the over-sized two car garage with automatic door openers. The neighborhood offers walk-to dining and shopping as well as walking trails. A block away is a wonderful wooded Arlington County trail that can be accessed thru the Lee Heights Park and follows Donaldson Run to the Potomac River! It's a well-kept secret, a great spot for exercise, connecting with nature or walking the dog. Washington DC, Crystal City, and Tyson's Corner are all quick drives and the home is also located in the Donaldson Run Swim Club boundaries. The current owners have lovingly maintained this turnkey home and hope you will enjoy your visit to the "Happy Yellow Home", fall in love with this beautiful property and enjoy it as much as they have. **Owners have found home of choice out of state and like to close by end of year.
