All-American In Collingwood Springs


The upcoming presidential election is providing the perfect atmosphere to stir our patriotic sentiments. The same spirit shows in this split-level home with an exterior of red, white and blue.  It is listed for sale at $715,330 with Marilyn Trudeau at Prudential Carruthers.

The split-level style is often credited to Frank Lloyd Wright, our nations most famous architect.  The red brick and white siding exterior, plus the blue shutters and shingle roof, help sound the all-American theme.

Located in the Fort Hunt area of Collingwood Springs, this 44-year-old home has been renovated with popular modern conveniences. Located next to the entrance hall, the living room features a red brick wood-burning fireplace, echoing the all-American theme.  Behind the parlor, the dining room adjoins the thoroughly modern gourmet kitchen, with its granite counters and stainless steel appliances. Beyond the dining room, a skylit sunroom provides a wall of windows overlooking the mature trees on the .29-acre lot.  Gleaming hardwood floors enhance the main story and also grace the four bedrooms on the two upper levels.

Three bedrooms share a full bath on the first upper level, while a master suite with its own bath occupies the second. Berber carpeting appears on the top level, which provides an additional bedroom or office space. The finished lower level also features Berber carpeting plus a powder room.

The schools are Stratford Landing Elementary, Carl Sandburg Middle and West Potomac High.
