For Sale: $600,000
This five-bedroom, four-bathroom home is conveniently located in Ravenna near Hampton Roads area duty stations and is every bit as luxurious as it looks. The all-brick exterior is simply stunning. And the wrought iron fence, immaculate landscaping, and grand entrance can easily take your breath away.
But it doesn’t stop there. Inside, you’ll find a beautifully balanced home — marrying the traditional qualities of homes many have favored, while embracing an open concept in the main living area. When you step through the front door, you’ll have the staircase leading to the second floor immediately in front of you.
The formal dining room is on your right, and the formal living room is on your left. As you make your way toward the back of the house through the living room, you’ll pass a bathroom and enter into the open area where there’s space for kids to play, an office, and casual area to dine.
Then there’s the kitchen, a second staircase to the upstairs, and the casual family room to unwind by the fireplace.
The kitchen is the center of this home. It’s a high-traffic area perfect for keeping an eye on activities. It’s complete with upgrades, white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, a double oven, an island, a wine rack, and a beautiful window centered over the sink.

The additional bedrooms are all spacious — one of which has an attached bathroom.
While this home makes an incredible first impression and a warm and fuzzy feeling as you make your way through the interior, the real show stopper to this property is the outdoor living space. The screened-in porch with a skylight and TREX flooring make the perfect place to enjoy your cup of coffee in the morning.
The lit staircase leads down to the newly paved patio below and the 18 x 35-foot in-ground pool, complete with a saltwater generator. Can you imagine a better way to spend a Virginia summer than floating in the pool with a cool beverage in your hand?
