Home of the Week: Luxurious Upgrades in the Heart of Downtown Fredericksburg
From Amy Cherry-Taylor
What more could you possibly ask for? In the heart of Downtown Fredericksburg. Only seven years old. Oodles of free parking. Luxurious upgrades galore. Let’s meet 409 Dunmore Street! Spanning 1,922 square feet, three bedrooms and two baths, this three-level offering sizzles like few others on our hot local market.
First, let’s start with the location – with this multi-hued beige beauty, you are less than five blocks from all the action along Downtown Fredericksburg’s main drag (Caroline Street) as well as the shore of the Rappahannock River. Whether it’s kayaking, fishing, shopping, dining or whatever your heart may crave, it is all right here! For commuters (or for a seamless day trip or vacation), the Fredericksburg Virginia Railway Express (VRE) and Amtrak station is within five blocks, too.
Approaching the residence, you’ll notice the open land to the left of the home – it’s a green space that belongs to a nearby church. The backyard is completely fenced, perfect for Fido and outdoor gatherings! Anchoring the back yard is a newly stained, 25-by-12-foot wooden deck, just in time for summer barbecues and lounging.
There is a small porch before walking through its front door, too. There is ample parking in its private driveway and… an amazing amount of space awaits in its automatic garage. Do not be fooled by what looks like a single-car garage from the street – this garage is absolutely massive, and its current owners have fit four cars in it! Envision the garage space as you please – for storage, a workout area, man cave, she-shed… absolutely anything is possible.
The totally open and flexible main level is draped in hardwood floors. Key areas include a dining space, half bath, and its large living room with gas fireplace, built-in shelving/cabinetry and sliding door access to the back yard.
The kitchen has a bay window and is clad in ivory-colored cabinets, stainless steel appliances and unique, brown-colored granite countertops. Make sure to check out the under-cabinet lighting that is remote-controlled and can turn a number of different colors. Everything is like new as this home was built in 2014!
Upstairs, you’ll find all three of the home’s bedrooms as well as two full baths. The primary suite is beaming in natural light, with towering cathedral ceilings, a ceiling fan, recessed lighting and a double-door walk-in closet. And, yes, there is an ensuite bath – its features include a beautifully tiled stand-up shower and double-sink set-up.
The additional two bedrooms upstairs are connected by a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with tub/shower combo and a dual sink. Rounding out the upper level is the laundry room and its energy-efficient GE washer and dryer convey. Making this home that much stronger and secure, its fully wired for a security system as well as high-speed Cox internet.
As for what its current owners will miss most that the next buyers will love? “We’re just minutes from the heart of Downtown. Usually, we don’t even have to use our car… it’s all right here!” When you’re ready for seamless Downtown Fredericksburg living and so much more, book your showing of 409 Dunmore Street while you can!
