10242 Van Thompson Rd, FAIRFAX STATION

Price reduced! Open house Sat 09/14, 1-4. Fully remodeled and updated split-level contemporary on almost 5 acres of pristine Ffx Co forest land. Bordered on two sides by park land. It feels like you're "out in the country", but you're just over a mile from Rt 123 (Ox Rd), with easy access to schools, shopping, Rt 95 and Ffx Co Pkwy. We bought this house in the fall of 2009, and spent the next year remodeling and updating. We: (1) updated, remodeled, enlarged, and moved the kitchen! (it's now where the dining room used to be), (2) installed hardwood on the main level, (3) updated/remodeled the master bath, and the other 2 full baths, (4) replaced the plywood siding with Hardie plank siding, (5) replaced all windows and both sliding doors, (6) added more windows facing the forest (7) installed a stainless-steel chimney liner for the wood stove, (8) installed new water treatment equipment: neutralizer and softener, and added a larger-capacity pressure tank, (9) re-piped the entire house from copper to CPVC, (10) replaced entire HVAC system and improved ductwork, (11) ran ethernet cabling to several key locations, and (12) replaced and upgraded the electrical panel. Busy year! More recently, we have (2014) excavated the below-grade bsmt wall, patched, repaired and re-sealed it, (2016) replaced the entire roof, (2019) replaced and upgraded water heater, and (2019) just replaced the well pump. There is a bedroom and adjacent full bath on entrance level. Could also be used as an office, and has door to outside between bedroom and bath. Bathroom has 36" door and wheelchair-accessible spacing between toilet and shower. Forested area of lot has very little underbrush and is very walkable. Or use a rake and quickly make yourself a path, as I have done! We have gotten great use of the woodstove. It's centrally located, and does a good job warming the house. Bsmt is unfinished, and provides a large storage area. 2nd refrigerator in bsmt conveys.
