With its brick sidewalks, Colonial-style street lamps and small parks, the planned community of Cameron Station was clearly inspired by the ideal all-American small town. It thus provides a perfect setting for this six-year-old classic Colonial fine home on Cameron Station Boulevard. It is listed at $1,075,000 with Margaret Hollar at Long & Foster Realtors.

In the strict 18th Century spirit, the red-brick exterior features a steep gabled roof rising above blue-shuttered mullioned windows. They frame the brick stairs lead to the pedimented white door. The front stairway and entrance hall stand between the breakfast-kitchen area and the living-dining space. The powder room and coat closet are conveniently close to the door.
In the same elegant style, pillars frame the living and dining areas, bay windows grace the dining and breakfast rooms and hardwood floors continue throughout the main floor.
Cherry cabinets and stainless-steel appliances enhance the kitchen, which adjoins the rear family room with its fireplace. A wall of full-length arched Palladian glass doors opens onto the landscaped, fenced rear stone patio with its koi pond. Its wooden gate leads to a pocket park, where play areas and benches carry out the neighborhood atmosphere. The family room also adjoins the two-car rear garage.
The second-story landing overlooks the entrance hall. The entire rear half of the second floor is devoted to the luxury master suite. Walk-in closets frame the master bath, with its oval tub, separate shower and dual vanities. The two front bedrooms share a full bath, conveniently close to the laundry room.
The steep gabled roof provides an additional private suite, with a bedroom and bath. A full bath, a den and a fireplace enhance the lower level.
Cameron Station also follows the neighborhood theme by providing a variety of dwellings including townhouses and condos, in addition to single-family homes. It also hosts a community center, swimming pool, parks, ball courts and shopping area, including a mini-mart, coffee house, day-care center, dry cleaner and day spa.
The schools are Samuel W. Tucker Elementary, Francis C. Hammond Middle and T.C. Williams High.
