Renting a home in a city that is conducive to military life isn’t always an option. Location is an important component for a high quality of life, and living in a well-established and sought-after property in Old Bridge Estates is an excellent start to a new life in Woodbridge. Finding a home like this one to call yours for a while is a great opportunity.
The owners are offering the amenities most renters are looking for like hardwood flooring, Corian counter tops, and a kitchen island. And, they’re offering other comforts beyond the traditional standards such as two fireplaces, luxury master bathroom, and a finished walkout basement with a full bathroom.
Five bedrooms are hard to come by, especially in a rental home, but there’s room for everyone here. A dedicated storage area in the basement means none of the bonus living space has to be used for unsightly and non-regularly used items.
