Home of the Week: Serene rambler with an in-ground pool
From Amy Cherry Taylor and Associates
159 Chapel Green Rd, Fredericksburg, VA 22405
Convenient, main level rambler-style living in a serene setting with an in-ground pool and updates aplenty! All of this and more awaits you at 159 Chapel Green Road.
This residence includes three bedrooms, 1.5 baths and approximately 1,800 square feet of living space. The home sits on a flat, no-HOA, approximately one-acre lot in Stafford County.
Zooming in on the acreage, a paved driveway leads to the homesite. The front yard is a vast, grassy lawn that’s totally open and has panoramic rural vistas. Within its back yard, there is an updated in-ground pool (2016) and adjacent pool shed, which houses the pool’s systems/equipment and has space for your toys. Also out back is a massive, empty shed for bonus storage. The back yard includes towering hardwood trees as well as a brick patio, making for a prime utopia for entertaining and relaxing. For parking, there is a two-car, attached carport. The home itself is a stately white.
Heading inside, gleaming hardwoods greet you and the upgrades in recent years are visible! Among them, the kitchen, both bathrooms, the plumbing and HVAC ductwork were updated in 2016.
The formal dining room and den are separated by a French door. The cozy den includes a fireplace with insert as well as a storage rack for wood (yes, the pre-cut wood conveys!).
As for the kitchen, it is country-style bliss, complete with white cabinets, black appliances and a double-window looking out to the backyard. Down a hall off the kitchen, you’ll find the laundry room complete with machinery (conveys and new as of 2018!), white storage cabinetry and a door to the back yard. Continuing down the hall is a full tiled bath with tub and shower; and two bedrooms separated by a half-bath Jack-and-Jill set-up. At the end of the hall is an office that segues into the absolutely massive primary bedroom!
The primary bedroom was an addition and includes brand new carpet and paint, a massive bay window overlooking the front yard and two giant closets that run the full length of the room. Between the primary bedroom and the adjacent suite, you have wiggle room to the max for exercise equipment, office furniture and more!
Systems-wise, the home had a new Trane HVAC unit installed in 2020 and the hot water heater was updated in 2016. The home has enjoyed regular pest control, HVAC, water filter and pool services, with a handful of services completed in the last month.
With this location, Downtown Fredericksburg is less than 15 minutes west and three I95 exits (Massaponax, Route 3 and Route 17) are within 20 minutes. For rail commuters, the Leeland Road VRE station is 10 minutes northwest. Dahlgren is 25 minutes east. For those seeking cozy, country-style, single-level living, yet want to be close to everything, it doesn’t get more serene than 159 Chapel Green Road! Nothing to do here but move right in for the holidays!
