A spacious, elegant family home is on the market now, positioned right on the eastern edge of Fairfax City at 3445 Preservation Drive. The five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home is located in Pickett’s Reserve, a neighborhood of semi-custom homes that are connected with tree-lined sidewalks and community paths, located just next to 15 acres of Fairfax County parkland. The current listing price is $1,550,000 for a square footage of more than 5,500 feet.
Spanning three levels, the home has a room to suit any need – from a recreation room and an exercise room, to a library fitted with built-in cherry wood shelves, it was thoughtfully designed so that nothing was left out. High, vaulted ceilings and tall windows throughout the home make it an airy, light-filled space, and understated traditional details like columns give it an elevated, classy feel.
An intricate, curved stairwell and two-story ceilings welcome you to the home, creating a picturesque connection between the spacious living area and the upper level. Just past the living room, pillars frame the doorway to the formal dining area, giving the space just the right amount of traditional charm and elegance.
The perfect area for entertaining, this open-concept layout connects the kitchen and the family room with plenty of space in between. The tall doors not only supply the room with ample natural light, they also open out to a spacious outdoor deck.
The primary suite is so much more than a bedroom, with a cozy sitting room complete with a gas fireplace and built-in bookshelves nestled in the corner.
A zen retreat is right at your back door, with this expertly landscaped stonework and koi pond. From the spacious two-level deck, you can look out at this serene scene and peek over to the nearby walking trail.
