From Amy Cherry Taylor and Associates
161 Hibiscus Dr, Stafford, VA 22554
A like-new, luxurious, former model home has emerged in dreamy Embrey Mill! Which lucky owner(s) out there will scoop up 161 Hibiscus Drive?
Built in 2021, this 4,651-square-foot residence includes five bedrooms and 3.5 baths throughout its three total levels (including a spacious basement). The home is tucked in the super-convenient and amenity-loaded Embrey Mill community, where amenities include more than 15 parks and playgrounds; a community garden; 2 clubhouses, 2 pools, a fitness center and a bistro!
Zooming in on the homesite, the sloped back yard is anchored by a massive 12×30-foot light gray deck with lighting features. Otherwise, the yard is vast, green and includes a flat space primed for a firepit/garden. For added privacy, there are no residences behind the home, just a nearby walking trail for adventures aplenty. Out front, the vibe is low-maintenance, with driveway parking for two cars in addition to its two-car garage. The home itself is neutral bliss with white paneling as well as a popping blue door and shutters. Stone accents add that much more to the refined vibe.
The layout here Stanley Martin Homes’ prized Middleton floor plan, plus there is a bonus 4-foot bumpout to the entire plan adding that much space and pizzazz! Inside, the upgrades upon upgrades show on the main level, with neutral walls, light gray luxury vinyl plank flooring and open spaces comprising the vibe. Main level highlights include a flex room (possible office!), a family room with a modern fireplace and stunning coffered ceilings, a powder room and the stunning kitchen. Kitchen highlights include sleek light gray cabinetry, quartz countertops, a white subway tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, walk-in pantry and a large central island with storage. Rounding out the level is a mudroom just off the garage.
Upstairs are four bedrooms (all with upgraded carpet!) and two baths, inclusive of the massive primary suite. The primary suite includes two huge walk-in closets and a bedazzled ensuite bath, complete with a walk-in shower with Italian fixtures and double sink set-up. The additional bath upstairs includes a tub/shower combo and single sink. Additional upper level highlights include a hallway nook (could easily be an office/leisure area!) and the laundry room with utility sink (machinery conveys!).
Downstairs, you’ll find the home’s final bedroom and full bathroom (tub/shower combo) Anchoring the lower level is a spacious and carpeted recreation/living room with a bar. It is all very much a blank canvas awaiting your unique vision! Additional basement components include a large unfinished area for storage and two sliding glass door exits to the back yard.
Core component-wise and as expected with a new home, its HVAC and hot water heater are running like-new. The home also has a wi-fi enabled smart sprinkler system and ADT alarm system to tap into.
Location-wise, so much is within 10 minutes of the home including two I-95 exits (Stafford/Courthouse Road and Route 610), Embrey Mill Town Center, the Jeff Rouse Sport and Swim Center and Stafford Hospital. The Brooke VRE station is 15 minutes southeast and Downtown Fredericksburg is 25 minutes southeast.
Of all the home’s features inside and out, the owners here will miss the panoramic, private vistas from the expansive back deck. What will charm you at 161 Hibiscus Drive? Book your showing ASAP!
