The upgrades throughout the house present a rarely found opportunity – A move-in ready home located inside the Beltway with immediate access to 395/495/95, but also within a tree-lined, green-space community surrounding a Fairfax County Park.
While residents live in this Park-like setting, Overlook is also perfectly positioned for residents to reap “livability” and house valuation benefits from the forthcoming Landmark Mall redevelopment and other planned projects along the Landmark-Van Dorn Corridor.
A full description of the house features and upgrades, the Overlook community, and the Landmark Mall redevelopment project is provided below.
This house has nice design and architectural details – both big and small – throughout, from the 13 foot ceiling and French doors to the Sunroom on the Main Level, to the upgraded light fixtures, to the brushed nickel hardware on every door in the house, with levers replacing knobs for a more elegant look and feel. An eye-pleasing color palette throughout the house will complement any design style preferred by the new homeowner.
