On the outside, its a classic Colonial dwellingfrom its red-brick walls to its blue-shuttered mullioned windows and its shingle roof. Beyond the traditional white pedimented door, though, it becomes a contemporary split-level home. You can enjoy them both this Sunday, May 18, from 1 to 4 p.m., when Prudential Carruthers hosts an open house at 4801 Peacock Avenue in Belle Wood. The property is listed at $599,000 with Yvonne Duvall. Call 703-836-1464.
The entrance foyer stairway leads up to the main floor. To the right, the open,
flowing living and dining area adjoins the kitchen. Its appliances, cabinets and counters are new this year, in the 44-year-old home. The dining room also leads to the screened porch overlooking the yard.
Across the hall, two bedrooms share a full bath. The entire area is unified by hardwood fl oors and white walls, in the contemporary spirit.
The lower level provides two more bedrooms and a bath. The hallway divides them from the front recreation room, with its full-length brick woodburning
fireplace. The laundry room behind it features steps leading outside. Parking is available on the driveway and street.
The schools are Patrick Henry Elementary, Francis C. Hammond Middle and T.C. Williams High.
