Home of the Week: Main Level Rambler in King George’s Hopyard Farm
From Amy Cherry-Taylor
Built in 2020 and move-in ready, the question is: Why build when you can buy basically brand new? This main level rambler home spans three bedrooms and two baths. It is situated in the amenity full Hopyard Farm in King George. Among the community amenities you’ll enjoy are a clubhouse with an Olympic-sized pool, playground, tennis courts, fitness center and public boat ramp at the banks of the Rappahannock River.
The home is in the newer, single-level portion of the community and was constructed by Ryan Homes. The home itself follows the Cayman model and has a full, unfinished basement for you to finish as you please! As for the 7,500 square-foot lot it sits on, its back yard is fully fenced and is essentially a green canvas for creating your outdoor utopia. Fido will love running around this space! There is also a small shed off the side of the home that stores trash/recycling (for sale). The front of the blue/gray/stone home has a two-car, automatic garage, driveway parking and plenty of off-street parking as well.
Once you enter, you’re greeted with a bright foyer. Just off the foyer are two of the home’s bedrooms (one of which may easily be a home office!), a full bath (shower/tub combo) and stairs down to the unfinished basement. The basement has rough-in plumbing for a bathroom and may easily be converted into the recreation room of your dreams. Back upstairs, the bulk of the main level is a naturally lit, open area.
The family room has brand new carpet and flows beautifully into the adjacent dining and kitchen areas. Highlights of the kitchen include dark cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel General Electric appliances and a large island. Off the dining area, there is a built-in sliding glass door for back yard access. Down a small hall off the dining area, you’ll find the home’s laundry room (washer and dryer convey!) as well as the owner’s suite. The suite has a huge walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom complete with two sinks as well as a large shower with seat. All bedrooms in the home are carpeted. Practically new home living aside, the owner has added a few technological features including a Google Thermostat, hard wiring to every room for internet and a Radon abatement system. Approximately one mile south of Route 3 in King George County, this location equates to seamless access to Downtown Fredericksburg, Dahlgren and Colonial Beach. All three towns are within a 25-minute drive. For everyday needs, the Shops at King George is within 10 minutes north and has shopping, dining and grocery options. A sparkling offering like 7097 Bagpipe Lane is unique and hard to find. Book your showing of this gem soon!
