Solar paneling, plenty of yard space and a simple yet well-maintained and recently updated interior make this two-bedroom Sterling home a great choice for the new or growing family. It’s available to own for $425,000.

Built in 1983, this listing comes retrofitted with several sleek, modernistic amenities and spiffy retouches to many of the living spaces, while the aforementioned solar panels reduce the monthly power bill by about 30 percent, according to listing agent Jennifer Whitehead. Adding to the convenience, the house is about a five-minute walk from Seneca Ridge Middle School and Dominion High School, while Meadowland Elementary is even less by car. Further, the property is mere blocks from Route 7, making it extremely commuter-friendly.

The single-story façade, with a covered porch backed by simple vinyl siding and flanked by a single-car garage, is instantly welcoming and homey, as is the family room that awaits beyond the front door. Between several surrounding windows and the wood-burning brick fireplace, light and warmth abound in this space, which features newly added carpet and Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring. A wall opening also allows guests enjoying the family room to communicate with whoever’s preparing the eats in the adjacent kitchen.

Here can be found further upgrades to the home, as the countertops are newly added, while the wooden cabinetry and tiled backsplash behind the stainless-steel stovetop offer a rural flair. The kitchen sits adjacent to a well-lit, vinyl-floored dining room and also offers walk-out access to the back deck, which — along with the spacious, fenced-in back yard — will make for satisfactory entertainment space during the warmer months.

With an added nook primed for a dressing, study or workout area, as well as multidirectional overhead lights that supplement the illumination of the three front-facing windows, the main bedroom makes for a pleasant retreat from the day’s stresses and responsibilities. For the couple without kids, the second bedroom offers even more space for various at-home activities or work functions. Both bedrooms share a full bath, which includes a sharp, tiled shower-tub combo.

Finally, the family hobbyist will also enjoy each visit to the two-story outdoor toolshed, which can function as a shop or simply provide extra storage.
