Welcome to Shirley Woods - a North Arlington neighborhood that is known for large lots and quiet tree-lined streets in the Yorktown/Williamsburg/Discovery School pyramid. This classic rambler has been expanded and updated since it last sold, to 3 levels with over 3000 sq ft of finished living space plus lots of storage. The current owners finished the 3rd floor into a flexible space that is sure to get your creative juices flowing. The fixed stairs lead you to a bright space with skylights, hardwood floors and cool angles that make working from home a joy. This 4 BD 3 BA home has beautiful light and just the right spaces for living, working, and entertaining. The entire home has rich wood and stone accents, refinished hardwood floors, and updated kitchen and bathrooms. The large eat-in kitchen overlooks one of the best backyards in Arlington, featuring towering trees, a lush lawn, basketball area, mature azaleas, and it is fully fenced. This ⅓ acre lot has plenty of space to expand the home again or just love it at its current generous size.
The main level kitchen has custom cherry cabinets with 2 pantries, a gas range, stainless appliances (including brand new dishwasher), a pretty herringbone backsplash, marble countertops and island with second prep sink. This is the heart of the home, with a vaulted ceiling, views of the spacious backyard and desk space for studying or working while keeping an eye on the yard. The 3 main level bedrooms have recently refinished hardwood floors and ample closets. The ensuite primary bathroom and the shared full bathroom are both tastefully updated with dual sink vanities and modern tile. Built-in cabinets at the main foyer provides a place to store coats, shoes and backpacks. The first room you see when you walk into this home is the gorgeous living room with wood burning fireplace flanked by built-in cabinets and a picture window through which the sunlight streams in. A formal dining room just off the kitchen has updated lighting and plenty of room for large gatherings.
The lower level is perfect for guests, entertaining, and play time. There is a screened-in porch next to a flagstone patio to allow for fun summer nights eating and playing outside. A wet bar, beverage fridge, wine storage and serving bar make it perfect for entertaining year round. The 4th bedroom and renovated 3rd full bathroom make it great for an au pair, guests or a second home office. The lower floor is a fully finished, walk out lower level rec room with a wall of windows looking out to a green large flat backyard. Currently used as a playroom and TV room, there is also a large storage area, huge finished laundry room, utility room and garage access. Garage has a built-in workbench and cabinets, room for bikes, strollers, etc., or could be used as an outdoor working space.
