Description

This property is no longer available to rent or to buy. This description is from July 30, 2021
This newly renovated and thoughtfully designed show stopper is nestled between two parks in Arlington’s premier Aurora Hills, a mere five minute drive to D.C. and walkable to many of the main attractions in Arlington and Alexandria. 2844 Fort Scott Dr is a stunning single family home with ample interior and outdoor spaces, intended to have the highest quality function for gathering and living tastefully joined with exquisite styling. A fresh 2021 remodel that upgraded nearly every nook and cranny inside the walls and out, this beautiful 1930s home with a modern twist wants for practically nothing. Every detail was carefully considered and planned for the next owner’s enjoyment. From the newly landscaped front entry, the beautiful true hardwood floors offer a natural warmth to the home and are the perfect backdrop for the modern finishes. The home has a large living room that is accented by a wood burning fireplace making it the ideal place for family gatherings. The dining room adjoins the opened and expanded custom kitchen with the perfect layout that maximizes every square inch. The completely brand new kitchen includes upgraded appliances, quartz countertops, designer tile, beautiful white cabinets with brass hardware, as well as a new pantry to maximize storage. Tucked around the corner is a charming powder room that expertly blends an antique faucet with stylish accents. From here, you’ll find the access to the open rear yard with new sod complete with string lights, ready for your next barbecue. Buggy outside? No problem, the party can easily flow to the generously sized screened in porch, large enough for a dining table and couch, that offers elevated views of Eads Park along with that summer breeze. The circular flow of the home is perfect for family life and it provides ample space for gatherings. Upstairs, you’ll appreciate the rare three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, giving everyone their own space but on the same floor. The secondary washer and dryer are here as well, making laundry especially convenient. Built-ins behind the bathroom doors and in the owners’ suite help to maximize storage space. The view outside the brand new windows is incredibly private and filled with greenery. Entering the lower level, a space which has been completely renovated, there is now a built in desk space next to a den and fourth bedroom. We love the versatility of this space as it can be ideal for additional play areas, a gym, or the perfect guest or au pair suite. Conveniences were considered in this space as it boasts a gorgeous full bathroom with deep tub and private laundry. You could possibly even use it as a rental unit or airbnb! The garage entry is on this level as well, with a mudroom style nook for your convenience. The upgrades do not end here, and continue behind the walls to include the new electrical and dual zone HVAC units. You’ll simply love living in this quiet pocket of Arlington that is centrally located to the Virginia Tech Innovation Campus, Amazon HQ2, Del Ray Alexandria, and Pentagon City. Convenience is key here; Whole Foods, Harris Teeters, Potomac Yards, Costco, Reagan National Airport, Pentagon City Mall, the shops at Crystal City and so much more is a walk away. Aurora Hills is where exciting new developments, friendly neighbors, and walking or biking to shops, restaurants, parks, and multiple metros rule the day.

    "We love this area. The neighbors are friendly and there are many options to dine and shop nearby. The neighborhood is established yet many homes have been remodeled to bring them into the modern era.
