This is a quintessential all brick center hall Virginia colonial home on over 1/3 of an acre landscaped lot with a fenced in back yard. MAIN LEVEL: As you enter the front door you have an open sight line to the expansive kitchen with a view of the back yard. Walk to your right, and you enter a spacious family room with two large windows that usher in lots of natural light. Hardwood floors were newly installed in the kitchen to match existing hardwoods that flow throughout this main level. Walking through the living room, you enter a large dining room with a large set of windows that invites in even more light and a beautiful overlook of the spacious fenced rear yard. No detail was overlooked, with freshly painted walls, chair rail, and plenty of room to place your treasured hutch or storage piece of choice along the walls. A wall was removed to create an open plan. The kitchen includes new base cabinetry, newly painted upper cabinets, new quartz countertops, new tile backsplash, new under cabinet lighting, updated plumbing, electrical, new disposer, and a brand-new window above the new stainless-steel sink that lets you admire your yard while washing up the dishes after a home cooked meal. Just off the kitchen is a set of sliding doors that leads to a light filled enclosed sun porch with a tile floor and floor to ceiling windows. There is a mud room just off the kitchen with a huge pantry and laundry area. It that connects to the garage, for ease of loading groceries. Walking out of the kitchen and down the center hall, you encounter a convenient half bathroom.

This room features a wall of built-in shelves and 2 more large windows that let in amazing morning light.

BASEMENT: this recreation space just had a deep cleaning of the carpets and is ready for your fitness equipment, or maybe a pool table and a large screen tv! YARD: The front lawn offers ample curb appeal, inviting you to enter the home. The back yard received more attention from the owners, including leveling the lot, removing an asphalt extension of the driveway and replacing it with new grass to expand the available green space, and a thorough update to the back yard. The rear yard offers a beautiful stamped concrete rear patio that overlooks a koi pond and the gardens, with a handy garden shed for all of your tools in the left corner.
