Nowadays, you need not be a homeowner to live in a luxury house. A newly-built brick classic Colonial, off Little River Turnpike on Grafton Street, is now listed for rent by Gil Stockton of Coldwell Banker at $3,500 a month. (Call 703-969-5089).
This new home, on nearly a half-acre lot in the quiet neighborhood of Fairland, features five bedrooms, each with its own full bath.
The front door opens to a spacious foyer featuring a vaulted ceiling, chandelier and picture window that drenches the interior with light. Hardwood floors accent the entire first level.
To the right of the entrance hall, French doors open to a small den, perfect for an office. On the left is the living room, with a gas fireplace and arched doorway leading to the dining area behind it.
Behind the dining room, a central island with separate sink highlights the kitchen, which is accented with glass-fronted maple cabinets, granite counters, a pantry, stainless-steel built-in and side by side refrigerator. The kitchen and breakfast areas face a spacious family room, complete with a gas fireplace and sliding glass door to the backyard.
The separate laundry room includes a door to the two-car garage. A bedroom suite is located behind the office, which stands across the entrance hall from the living room. The first floor also provides a powder room.
From the foyer, the stairway winds up to the second level. To the left, the master suite spans the entire width of the house. The master bathroom boasts a jetted soaking tub with two planter windows, a separate glass enclosed shower, and double vanity. The other three upstairs bedrooms are located off the main hall, each with its own full bath.
In addition, the 4,400 square foot home features a two-car, side-loading garage with automatic door opener, a brick stoop and walkway, and brick rear patio beside a fenced backyard. The attic has pull-down stairs, and the climate is controlled by a dual-zoned gas heat and air conditioning unit.
