Home of the Week: Rare property on Widewater Beach
From Amy Cherry Taylor and Associates
Your own oasis with convenient water access, incredible amenities and undeniable serenity awaits you in Stafford County.
22 Sandy Lane is waiting for you. This home has recently been updated, and spans nearly 3,500 above-grade square feet. The home has had several enhancements in recent years including new roof and vinyl siding (2021), newer water filtration system, landscaping refreshments along with HVAC and water heater updated in 2015.
The Widewater Beach community sits peacefully along Aquia Creek close to where it meets the Potomac River. Amenities include community dock, boat ramp, private park, picnic area, regularly scheduled events/gatherings and a beach. With this location, you can cruise to restaurants in Fairview Beach within minutes or take longer treks to Occoquan, Alexandria, Georgetown and all spots in between. And, of course, Widewater State Park – which is loaded with recreation and hiking trails – is just down the street.
A lovely white picket fence surrounds the entire house, enclosing mature trees and green space, giving it fantastic curb appeal. The large covered front porch is perfect for rocking chairs to take in the water views while the oversized, covered back porch is perfect for grilling and outdoor dining space. There’s plenty of parking between an oversized two car garage and paved driveway.
Across the two levels of the home, you will find natural light and open spaces. Through its front door, the bamboo flooring brings you into the cozy and welcoming foyer and formal living room with a private office space off it. The highly functional kitchen includes a large island for food prep or laid-back dining. Just steps away, enjoy a more casual sitting area with nearly a full wall of brick and wood burning fireplace. From the more formal dining room, you can access the back porch or front wrap around deck leading to the covered front porch.
There is a large laundry room on the main level. The primary suite is also located on the main level with it’s private ensuite bath – mosaic tiled shower, water closet and sink with plenty of cabinet space. Upstairs you’ll find four carpeted bedrooms along with two full bathrooms – each bedroom has access to one of the full bathrooms.
Beyond Widewater Beach, you will find many attractions within minutes. For dining, shopping and groceries, numerous options await along Route 610/Garrisonville Road just 20 minutes west. You can be to Quantico approximately 15 minutes and downtown Fredericksburg in approximately 30 minutes.
Among so many features within and beyond its walls, the owners of 22 Sandy Lane will miss “being one with nature and all the community has to offer.” An opportunity like this rarely emerges in Widewater Beach!
