Modern style meets classic charm in this Dutch Colonial Revival full of beautiful updates and perfectly situated in one of Arlington Height’s most desirable Brackett School neighborhoods. The front portico welcomes you into this gracious home where dark hardwood floors and abundant natural light flow throughout the immaculate interior. This home delivers the perfect blend of original craftsmanship, period details, and recent updates designed with today’s buyer in mind. The inviting formal living room features hardwood floors, crown molding, and a wood-burning fireplace accented by a stylish white mantel and brick surround. A large, cased opening flows to a delightful front sun-room with walls of windows, hardwood flooring, and potential to be used as an office, playroom, or a cozy space for relaxing with a good book.

A thoughtfully designed floor plan creates an easy flow to the kitchen from both the formal living and dining rooms. The elegant and spacious formal dining room stuns with lovely wainscoting, crown molding, a built-in corner china cabinet, a stained-glass accent window, designer light fixtures, and dark hardwood floors offering the ideal space for hosting fun dinner parties with family and friends. Create culinary delights in the modern and newly updated chef’s kitchen with Silestone counters, stainless steel appliances, stylish white cabinetry, gas cooking, a built-in hutch, dark hardwood flooring, crown molding, recessed lighting, and plenty of space for an informal dining area. Sunny, double windows over the sink make this kitchen cheery while an exterior door offers a great connection
to the backyard space perfect for easy outdoor living.

A lovely main staircase leads you from the living room to the generously-sized and open second level foyer where sunlight streams through the windows. The sizable, sun-splashed family bedrooms are light-filled with beautifully maintained dark hardwood floors, crown molding, and ample closet space for the ultimate storage and organization. The second level full bathroom is tastefully done in neutral tones with a modern white vanity, ceramic floor tiles, and a tiled tub and shower. Escape to your own private retreat in the spacious third level master suite with a walk-in closet, shining hardwood floors, a sunny double window, and endless built-in storage. A contemporary, sliding barn door opens to the spa-like master bathroom featuring an oversized tiled shower stall with built-in bench, marble accents, and a frameless glass door.

The lower level continues to impress with a spacious family room and a built-in bar area. This large, finished space offers a great vibe perfect for family movie nights, kid’s playtime, or entertaining. The home is heated by gas with replacement windows throughout to help ensure energy efficiency
