Lovingly maintained and brimming with quaint mid-century simplicity, this three-bedroom Sterling rambler is an ultra-cozy abode ideal for the growing family. It’s currently listed at $480,000.
The home, built in 1969, lies just off Sterling Boulevard and is less than a mile from Route 7, placing it near a number of conveniences. Rolling Ridge Elementary School and Park View High are within easy walking distance, while Sterling Middle School is a five-minute drive. Hop on Route 7 and within minutes you’ll reach the Loudoun Campus of Northern Virginia Community College and the Dulles Town Center mall.
Listing agent Irene deLeon calls the 1,300-square-foot house “[single] level living at its best.” A decorative stone walkway leads to the home’s painted-brick façade, from which protrudes a covered front porch.
The front door leads into an open-aired living area, much of which is footed by warm-colored hardwoods. Openings in the walls allow guests to view virtually the entire living area from the entryway, including the family room, dining area and kitchen.
White cabinetry lines the enclosed kitchen, which offers plenty of counter space and bar seating. Directly adjacent is the dining area, from which one can access the back patio and large backyard through a sliding glass door.
On the other side of the dining area is the family room, in which roughhewn stone covers both the floor and a gas fireplace. The room is large enough, deLeon said, that “you could create a workspace or learning space for homeschooling.” Several large windows punctuate the walls of the living area, washing the space with welcoming natural light.
A corridor off the entryway leads to the sleeping quarters, including the owner’s suite, which sits at the corner of the home and is thus filled with light coming from perpendicular windows. The en-suite bath is lined with rustic-style tile, which runs from the floor into the spacious standing shower.
The other two bedrooms — one of which also enjoys placement at the corner of the house — share a full bath off the aforementioned hallway. The hallway also includes a closet with washer-dryer hookups, so residents needn’t venture far to take care of laundry.
While retaining its half-century-old charm, the home also benefits from several recent updates. Its HVAC system and water heater were replaced within the last 10 years, while the roof was updated in the last five.
“The house has [been] well maintained and is ready for the new owners to move right in,” deLeon said.
