Home of the Week: Dazzling Fredericksburg Belle
Meet 501 Woodford Street. This 2,087 square foot home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It last sold in 2019 and was originally built in 1955. It is situated in the Normandy Village community and has its own private driveway and detached garage!
Let’s zoom in on this brick beauty, shall we? Situated on a corner lot, approaching the home you’ll appreciate its external features including a flat yard, carport, and expansive patio. Since purchasing the home, its latest owners have installed a new roof (2019) and cured the flower beds to make for an even more low-maintenance experience.
Inside, the home has been completely opened up and has some major recent upgrades (including a new HVAC system!). Where a wall once divided its living room and kitchen, it is no more… equating to a spacious and light-filled great room. Speaking of light, the sunroom is absolutely gleaming. As for the kitchen, it has been upgraded with new cabinetry, strong counters, a brick mosaic backsplash, farmhouse sink, island and tasteful lighting.
There are three total bedrooms upstairs including its private primary suite tucked toward the back of the house that has a black and white clad ensuite bath. The additional two main level bedrooms share a full bath (note the unique tiling on the floor, folks!).
Heading downstairs to its finished basement (the staircase is off the kitchen), the “open spaces” theme certainly continues. This level boasts a show-stopping great room, full bath with upgraded tile and the basement is fully wired to incorporate a kitchen, should your heart desire. And, yes, there is a massive bedroom in the basement. The opportunities are endless in its basement!
Location-wise, this is Fredericksburg living at its finest with Downtown just blocks away and Central Park as well as the University of Mary Washington within a five-minute drive. Fredericksburg Shopping Center – with dining, banking and more – is just around the corner from the home. For outdoor lovers, the Rappahannock River and Heritage Trail are two blocks northwest.
On the commuting front, two Interstate 95 exits are within three miles of the home – the US Route 17 exit to the north and State Route 3 exit to the south. Rail commuters rejoice – the Fredericksburg Virginia Railway Express (VRE) station is 1.8 miles from your doorstep.
Its latest owners will miss “its unbeatable location, natural light and flexible space.” When you’re ready for all 501 Woodford Street offers, book your showing while you can!
