Welcome to 716 S. Wayne Street in the sought-after and conveniently located Penrose neighborhood of Arlington. This three-level brick colonial is sited on a flat, nearly 1/4 acre lot and offers a detached 1-car garage. A rear addition provides an enlarged kitchen with an island plus a morning room. The home has been freshly painted, hardwood floors on the main and upper levels have been refinished, and all outlets and switches replaced along with many new light fixtures.
As you pass through the freshly painted front door you are greeted with traditional living and dining rooms positioned at the front of the home. The living room offers a wood-burning fireplace that has been tastefully updated along with built-in bookcases for extra storage. The dining room offers enough space for a large table, perfect for Thanksgiving this November. Off of the living room is a screened porch with optional interchangeable windows that allow for extended seasonal use. A powder room for guests is cleverly tucked away near the kitchen.
The enlarged kitchen is light and bright thanks to the rear skylights. The ample counter and cabinet space along with a gas cooktop are sure to satisfy your inner-chef. The adjoining morning room provides additional storage, a built-in desk and an eat-in area with built-in bench at the bay window with storage underneath. The large, two-tiered paver patio to the rear of the home offers plenty of room to grill, dine and relax while overlooking the fully fenced rear yard. The possibilities are endless with a 190+ ft deep lot and abundant space to the rear of the home: enjoy the lawn for playing & sports, add a pool or sport court, or further enlarge the home*.
Back inside, the upper level offers three bedrooms and two full bathrooms including an owner's retreat with en-suite full bathroom and a walk-in closet - all of which are rare features for a Penrose home in this price range. Pull-down stairs to a fully insulated attic provides convenient storage. The basement features a flexible layout, including a rec room or office space, a den that can serve as a fourth bedroom, and a spacious unfinished area with more storage or potential for additional finished space. A second half-bathroom at the basement level also comes in handy.
The location is exceptional, with Penrose Park just steps away, offering a playground and sports court. Additionally, you'll find restaurants, coffee shops, a grocery store, and shopping options just two blocks away. Commuting is a breeze with quick access to 395, making it convenient for reaching the Pentagon, Ft. Myer, Amazon HQ2, Clarendon, Shirlington, Old Town, and downtown DC.
