When you pull up in front of this home for the first time, you’ll understand why so many people want to live here in Franklin Farm.
This gorgeous 4-bedroom colonial in the Oakton High School pyramid is flanked by an expansive meadow and one of the 13 miles of walking paths. The classic front porch with swing spans the entire length of the house and requires that you relax with a lemonade in the shade on hot summer’s day.
Just off the front foyer, French doors open to a large living room with space for a piano, books, or multiple seating areas. From the living room you’ll enter a generously sized dining room with stylish lighting and space for side serving tables or shelves. The adjoining kitchen is bright, has plenty of counter space, stainless steel appliances, and a bright and airy breakfast area. This opens to a roomy family room anchored by a brick fireplace and plenty of space for lounging in front of the fire or TV. French doors lead from the family room to a beautiful screened-in deck with a soaring cathedral ceiling where you’re sure to gather with friends and neighbors regularly.
Upstairs there are four nicely-sized bedrooms including the primary bedroom with walk-in closet and recently remodeled en-suite bathroom. One of the other bedrooms on this level also includes a walk-in closet, while another has built-in shelving for extra storage. The hall bathroom has also been recently remodeled.
The basement is nearly fully-finished and has a recreation/media room with built-in entertainment center for a 70” TV. It also has a built-in desk area for homework or art projects and a storage closet making use of the space under the staircase. A bonus room is furnished for guests to stay over and includes a full en-suite bathroom that is also accessible to the rec. room. A nicely-sized laundry room with extra shelving and access to a crawl-space for storage completes the lower-level.
When you step outside in the back yard you’ll be greeted by a view of acres of manicured common area and a feeling of tranquility in an otherwise vibrant community.
While the home is beautiful and well-cared for, you’ll love living in Franklin Farm for the 13 miles of walking/biking trails, 6 tranquil ponds, 2 community pools, popular swim team, tennis courts, sand-volleyball courts, basketball courts, and more. Part of the Oakton High School pyramid and close to Metro, commuting routes, Reston Town Center, Fair Lakes, and so much more. This home and neighborhood is truly one of the gems of Fairfax County.
