Buy into one of the most welcoming and picturesque of neighborhoods, Riverside Gardens, at an incredibly affordable price. Situated on a large, flat lot amongst wide, quiet streets lined with sidewalks, beautiful mature trees (and buried power lines!), this charming Sweetbrier model draws you into its ideal floorplan with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, including a coveted primary suite.
The main floor offers an inviting circular flow that is not often found in this model, with a bright and spacious living room that opens into the dining room and kitchen overlooking the huge and fully fenced backyard. The kitchen, while still retaining its original charm, has been refreshed with white cabinetry and granite counters, and includes a double wall oven, cooktop, and newer fridge. The breakfast area off the kitchen is a great place to watch the birds or kids through the big picture windows, and also access the private backyard oasis with stamped concrete patio and large grassy area.
Upstairs, on the first upper level, there are three generously sized bedrooms with hardwood floors and an updated full bathroom that features the classic and original blue tiled floors. Head up a half flight of stairs to the fourth level and be welcomed to your large owner suite boasting a sizable remodeled en-suite bathroom with walk in shower and dual sinks.
In the lower level, which is simply a few steps from the living area, there is newer LVP flooring throughout, a spacious family room with fireplace, updated half bathroom, and large utility and laundry room. Major recent updates include the new Carrier HVAC system (2020), State hot water heater (2020) and Roof by Master Roofing (2005).
Stroll a six-minute walk to the end of Stable Dr, Riverside Gardens Swim and Tennis Club is where everyone congregates in the summer, with swim team, tennis lessons, yoga and fitness classes. The Riverside Gardens Citizens' Association is run by residents at no cost and hosts neighborhood events throughout the year, holiday decoration contests, and provides updates on important neighborhood matters.
Walkable to both the highly desirable Stratford Landing Elementary School and Carl Sandburg Middle School, and easily accessible to the quaint Hollin Hall Shopping Center, Old Town, Mount Vernon, Potomac River, Fort Hunt Park, and more.
Cared for with the intention of being a forever home in a neighborhood where kids playing in the streets is more common than moving cars, 8420 Stable Drive is a most special place to call home. *Seller's loan may be assumable at 2.75% for VA Eligible Buyers who can pay the difference between the loan balance and the contract price*
