About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

We had lived in this neighborhood for 18 years and recently moved. The neighborhood is a fabulous private community but a few minutes from Metro and Washington, D.C. We are located next door to a Park that has jogging trails and a pool and huge work out facility and you can walk there from our house. We are 6 miles from major metro stop directly to DC and 3 minutes to bus stop that takes you to DC. We are 16 miles to DC.

Our home has been completely remodeled with a new kitchen with granite tops and all new stainless steel appliances. All 3.5 bathrooms have also been completely remodeled as well please see pictures.

Upstairs we have four bedrooms with a Master bedroom with plenty of room and its own private bathroom with tub and shower as well as a flat screen TV and two walk in closets and there are also two doors that open into bedroom number two in case you want to have a baby nearby and leave the doors open. Bedroom number two has a bed and trundle bed that sleeps two kids and a double window for plenty of light and closet and chest of drawers. Bedroom number three has a queen bed and plenty of room for also sitting and reading a book with another flat screen TV for your enjoyment. Bedroom number four has two twin beds and is full of light and a gaming system which is one of two systems. The three bedrooms share a fully renovated hall bathroom upstairs with double sinks with of course the Master bedroom having it's own bathroom as previously mentioned. (Two full baths upstairs)

The main level has a formal dining room, formal living room, eat in kitchen and family room with gas fireplace and you can walk out unto a brand new trex deck and flagstone patio for your enjoyment. There is a newly renovated half bath off the kitchen and foyer for greeting guests. There is also a two car garage with an extra refrigerator there for storage and a new ping pong table for your entertainment. We also have multiple outdoor games stored there as well.

The lower level basement area has a room to play pool and air hockey and one of the two types of gaming systems there with additional seating and another flat screen TV for viewing while playing and a recreation room with two couches and a large 60 inch flat screen TV. Last but not least there is a 5th bedroom down here with a queen size bed and plenty of room to relax and read as well. We have a fully renovated full bathroom here and a small exercise room as well.

The house is beautifully landscaped and the backyard opens to woods and a gorgeous deck for eating outside with a dining table and gas grill! Walking further you see a new flagstone patio with plenty of room to gather and entertain. There is a 6 foot privacy fence around the rear of the yard. We also have another area under the trees to walk through and sit under the shade!

Our home is a brick Colonial with a large driveway, 2 car garage and plenty of parking! We offer free Wifi and cable TV with a movie package. Enjoy my wife's 18 years of gardening with flowers everywhere you look and a well landscaped lawn. We provide linens as well and the landscaping and lawn is maintained weekly!

Why Donnie & Debbie Walker chose Springfield

This property is in a very nice private neighborhood with lots of trees and next to a park! Our home can take you quickly to Washington D.C., Bethesda, MD or Old Town Alexandria. We are 6 miles from Metro station and 18 miles from the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. We luckily live close to the major highways so getting around and out of DC traffic and crowds is easy and convenient.

There is a lake (Lake Mercer) that is in our neighborhood you can walk to and we just loved bringing up our children here.

**Amazing House and Perfect for a Washington Stop off**

  • 5 of 5

The property is as great as it looks in the pictures, ideal location close enough to Washington to see all the sites, 8 of us stayed at the house, 2 families of 4, and there was more than enough room, the kids loved the basement area which was like another house with large room, another bedroom and bathroom along with a games room...which we struggled to get them out of..that was their hideaway.

We also went to six flags of America which was only a 45 min drive from the house.

The owners were excellent with information and very fast a getting back to us with any questions, and the check in and out was easy.

The local shops were very close, a short 5 min walk or drive and you have starbucks, a supermarket and other food outlets, all of us would highly recommend this property.

Excellent House; they have everything you could need

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing. More than that, every thing that you could possibly think to need was at the house. The washer and dryer was great to have. The bedrooms were excellent. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything we could need (including a slow cooker!). There were plenty of towels, pillows, and blankets. The outdoor space was fantastic and the grill was easy to use. Absolutely would stay here again if I was in the area.

Wonderful home, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

We took our four children to DC for site seeing. This was a great house for the family and was a safe location for our family.

Pictures don’t do this lovely home justice. The house has been updated and everything was super clean and new. The backyard belongs in better homes and gardens. The deck and patio are awesome and there’s a premium grill to cook out. The basement is a family gem. The kids loved hanging out and playing games in the evening.

Everything was wonderful and we will definitely stay here again if we travel to DC.

Perfect Washington DC home base for 2 families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! Donnie and Debbie were fantastic to work kind and quick to respond with any questions or needs. We chose this rental as our home base for our Washington DC vacation (another family joined us...11 people total). It was a perfect location. Near the metro that provided easy transportation to all the memorials and museums. The house was a perfect fit for both families...plenty of places to sleep, lots of entertainment for the kids (air hockey, ping pong, pool table) and a well stocked kitchen that enabled us to make many meals at the house instead of eating out all the time. Beautiful back yard and we enjoyed many meals sitting out back.

During our trip we visited all the monuments and memorials, several of the Smithsonian museums, the White House, the Capitol, Arlington Cemetery (highly recommend watching the changing of the guards!), Mount Vernon (15 minutes from the house and HIGHLY recommend!).

This house was located in a beautiful neighborhood and there was a grocery store that was very close by (extremely helpful!). A big thank-you to Donnie and Debbie for opening up their home! We had a great trip!

Excellent Property - Outstanding Owners

  • 5 of 5

My first impression of this property was a positive one. Everything in place, inviting curb appeal, well maintained lawn and nice neighborhood. The owners left easy-to-follow instructions in the confirmation email to explain everything about the property. Once inside, we were blown away by its' cleanliness and the home away from home feeling. We had only one problem with the air conditioning that wouldn't cool below a certain temperature. After calling and texting the owners, they responded immediately and sent an electrician to fix the problem. Turns out, there was no problem in the first place, my family and I were not familiar with the A/C thermostat that was controlling the A/C, therefore we didn't know what we were doing. For my inconvenience, the owners offered to give me some of my money back. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the video games, table games and my family even had a billiards shoot-out. Not a boring moment, this property provided for everyone. We feel comfortable recommending this property to anyone. Thanks for allowing my family to stay in your home.
