With our areas typical taste for timeless tradition, the classic Colonial will no doubt always attract its share of Alexandria homebuyers. But if you are looking for something that will stand out in a striking way, you need look no further than this Camden model in the Arts and Crafts style, to be built at Stratford Landing by Wakefield Homes. The house is listed at $1,075,000 with Chris White at Long&Foster.
The square shape, the low-pitched roof and the square stone foundations and pillars all help to display this distinctively American design. The balconies and porches take full advantage of the 2.5-acre lot. Those characteristic grey-stone pillars frame the front porch and the living-room balcony beside it. They stand out beside the white Hardi Plank exterior walls to make a memorable first impression.
The front porch opens onto the entrance hall. Two-piece crown molding graces the foyer, living room and dining room, while hardwood floors continue throughout the main floor.
The living room features a corner gas fireplace and full-length glass doors lead to the front balcony. The parlor also adjoins the dining room, with its bay window. A hallway leads past the pantry to the kitchen, where another bay window brightens the breakfast nook. Granite counters and 42-inch maple cabinets help create a gourmet kitchen.
This area is also open to the TV room, which adjoins a side balcony. A powder room is strategically located between the TV and dining rooms.
The entrance hall also provides an oak stairway leading to the second floor. The master bath occupies the entire rear half, boasting an oval Jacuzzi tub, a separate shower and dual vanities.
Two of the other bedrooms feature their own porches while sharing a bath and closet. The front bedroom also includes a bay window with a porch leading to the office.
The lower level provides the front-loading two-car garage. An additional bedroom and bath stand on either side of the hallway leading to the rear of the family room. It displays a corner gas fireplace beneath soaring 11-foot walls, adding even more excitement to this distinctive home.
