Home of the Week: Locust Grove beauty with a private yard
From Amy Cherry Taylor and Associates
3455 Riverbend Drive, Locust Grove, VA 22508
If like-new living, invigorating community amenities and regional convenience are boxes needing to be checked, look no further than 35455 River Bend Drive!
Just one year old (built in 2021!) this fresh residence includes four bedrooms, 2.5 baths and more than 2,200 square feet of open living. It follows DR Horton’s prized Deerfield model and includes numerous modern features.
Before digging into the residence, appreciate the amenity-full Wilderness Shores community. Among the staples you and yours will enjoy are walking trails, a tot lot, pool, and clubhouse.
The home’s acreage includes newly installed fencing out back, (perfect for Fido and making your outdoor oasis that much more private!). Otherwise, low-maintenance landscaping abounds within the back yard space and out front. A cement driveway leads to the front-loading, two-car garage.
The home itself is a modern blue/gray mix. Inside there are two above ground levels as well as a partially finished basement. The main level is a total open oasis, with brown/gray rustic plank flooring and bright windows throughout. Just off the living room is its dazzling kitchen area, complete with an oversized island, dark cabinetry, granite countertops, a large sink with pull-down sprayer and stainless-steel appliances. Make sure to check out the dishwasher – a favorite of the current owner – that has three racks! Rounding out the level are a half bath as well as an exit with stairs down to the back yard.
Upstairs, tan carpet abounds. You’ll find four bedrooms and two full baths on this level, inclusive of the super-roomy primary suite. Key components of the suite include a walk-in closet and spacious ensuite bath with raised-countertop double vanity, a wow-worthy linen closet and walk-in shower. The additional bath upstairs has a tub/shower combo as well as a similarly equipped double vanity and linen closet. Beyond the additional bedrooms, there is a laundry room with a hook-up for machinery.
The lower level is anchored by a large, finished recreation room with tan carpet. Within the unfinished space, there is opportunity aplenty. In addition to the home’s like-new systems, there is rough-in plumbing for a possible bathroom, should you choose to one day build it out.
For everyday needs, there is a Walmart Supercenter near the front of the neighborhood and, within minutes 20 minutes along Route 3, are endless options for shopping, dining, and groceries. For golf lovers, Somerset Farms Golf Course is less than a half-mile from its doorstep and Meadows Farms is five minutes south. River adventures await along the Rapidan in minutes, too! With this location, you can be to I-95 (Route 3 exit) and Downtown Fredericksburg within 30 minutes.
Among the original owners’ favorite aspects of 35455 River Bend Drive have been its convenience, family time with the fenced-in back yard and all the community amenities. What will capture your heart at this Locust Grove beauty?
