Stunning. That’s all I have to say about the impression you get when you walk in this impeccably maintained 3 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom Carriage Home at 25133 Fortitude Terrace in South Riding. You’re instantly struck by the grandeur of the floor plan, with a 2-story Living Room with a wall of windows on your left. On your right is a Formal Dining Room with chair rail, crown molding, and ceiling medallion….plus wooden shutters on the front windows. Hardwood floor and neutral paint throughout the Main Level add to the elegance. While it’s technically “attached” to a Carriage Home on either side, this home has the feel of a single family home and boasts 3,417 square feet of space over 3 finished levels.
This Carriage Home has an Ideal Layout
While the more formal rooms are appropriately showcased at the front of the home, the more used rooms are located in the back of the home. The Gourmet Kitchen with eat-in breakfast area is tucked behind the Dining Room, which is perfect if you occasionally have a few dirty dishes that pile up! You’ll love the maple cabinets, granite counters, tile backsplash, built in wall oven and microwave, cooktop, and under-mount sink. Attached to the kitchen is a cozy yet spacious Family Room with a beautiful gas fireplace and a door to the deck and back patio.
Trees and Landscaping Create a Backyard Oasis
The outdoor space has a surprisingly large feel for the size of the lot and affords plenty of room for outdoor furniture under several lovely trees. Well chosen and maintained landscaping surrounds the patio, and you’ll also have a view of a tree conservation area beyond. Overall, it’s a very lovely, well designed, and low maintenance lot.
Upstairs Boasts Three Spacious Bedrooms
Upstairs you’ll find a lovely Primary Bedroom with His and Hers large walk-in closets, plus an ensuite Bath with soaking tub, separate shower stall, and double sinks. The two additional bedrooms, both on the front of the home, are roomy and attractive, with one boasting a cathedral ceiling and Palladian window.
This home’s finished Basement with walk-up egress to the back patio is another highlight. The large Rec Room has upgraded carpet and padding, and there’s a nice full Bathroom, as well as two unfinished areas for storage.
Upgraded and Well Maintained
As you walk through this Carriage Home, you’ll notice a lot of nice upgrades: decorative light fixtures, plenty of recessed lighting, newer outdoor light fixtures, ceiling fans, and shutters on all the front windows. The hot water heater was replaced three years ago, and the washer and dryer were replaced 2 years ago. The owners also added screens to the gutters, have serviced the HVAC systems regularly, and have had the roof periodically inspected.
South Riding Offers Convenience and Numerous Amenities
The location of this home can’t be beat either. Fortitude Terrace forms a loop, and although it’s a through street, it’s really only traveled by the residents who live there. It’s centrally located within South Riding and within walking distance of both Liberty Elementary and Freedom High School (and just a short bus ride from J.M. Lunsford Middle School). The World Trail walking path with exercise stations along the route runs through the base of the street, and the new Dulles South Rec Center and Senior Center are just a short walk away.
The community of South Riding offers events for residents of all ages throughout the year, and it’s easy to keep busy and active with the range of fitness amenities: pools, playgrounds, a fishing pier, and athletic fields. Its proximity to Dulles Airport, Route 50, and various shopping centers make it an especially convenient location.
