Property description

A charming town home in a quiet neighborhood. Spacious and tasteful accommodations for eight to ten featuring two queen size beds, two twins, a queen sleeper sofa, plus two twin inflatable mattresses. All the beds, except the inflatable mattresses, have new memory foam mattress toppers. Hardwood floors throughout the main living areas accented by stylish area rugs and furniture. We are an end unit townhouse, not a detached single family residence.

Large windows, including floor to ceiling windows in the Living Room, allow ample light in every room. Original art and other quality decor can be found in almost every room. The basement family room features a 42' plasma HD TV with Blue Ray player. Numerous books, games, puzzles and toys are available for our guests use. Along with 3 bedrooms, the 2nd story provides a common media room where you can catch up on emails using our high-speed wireless network, watch TV, or read a good book!

After a long day sight seeing, enjoy a family meal around the table in the kitchen, or a more formal affair in the separate dining room which easily seats 8 or more.

Washer and dryer are available for guest use, and we also provide a Pack N Play and booster seat for families with young ones. A lovely backyard deck and large BBQ grill is ideal for outdoor entertaining in the summer.

Our guest house is perfectly situated to allow easy access to DC's and Virginia's finest attractions. Several DC Metro stations, with ample parking, are within a 5 mile radius. The I-395 and I-495/95 are less than two miles away for quick access downtown or to all parts of Virginia and Maryland.

Car: Recommended

There really is no place like Washington DC in the world. The collection of world-class museums featuring some of the world's best art, science and portrayals of national and world history is unprecedented! The numerous memorials commemorating historic and important people and events in US history are not to miss. As the seat of our country's government, there are countless opportunities to visit, learn about and experience important federal facilities including the White House, Capitol, FBI, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Library of Congress, and many more!

The Washington metro area is also home to the most diverse population in the USA. As a result, there are countless opportunities to experience foreign cuisines and cultures in a way not possible in any other US city.

Despite being a major metropolitan area, there are many outdoor activities to take part in including excellent biking, water sports, hiking, white water rafting, skiing, and exploring the Shenandoah National Park. Virginia also has a burgeoning wine business exemplified by some very good wineries you can easily visit on a day trip to the more rural parts of the state.

Other very popular attractions are close enough to access on a day trip, including Williamsburg, King's Dominion theme park, Annapolis, Baltimore's Inner Harbor, Gettysburg, and the Chesapeake Bay.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Kathy and I moved to Virginia in 2007 for me to finish out my federal career and work a short second career in private industry. We have thoroughly enjoyed living in our home in Springfield and enjoying all that the Washington DC and Northern Virginia areas have to offer. It has been especially wonderful being near our daughter's family, and our two grand-daughters, who live in Fairfax! Having recently retired, we have moved back to our long-time home in southern California, looking forward to enabling our guests at the Spring Guest House to enjoy our house, and the surrounding area, as much as we have!

Why the Owner Chose Springfield, VA, USA:
We bought this home because of the wonderful neighborhood, the quality construction, and the location - not being in Washington DC per se, but being close enough that working or playing, we could easily get into the city anytime we wanted. We also enjoyed the ease of townhouse living, especially an end unit, with the feel of a single family home, but not the upkeep of a large yard, etc. We've never had any noise related concerns with the neighbors we share one wall of our home with.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Spring Guest House is meant to be your home away from home. It offers a thoughtful combination of comfort, charm and quality. It is set in a quiet, safe residential neighborhood and has ample shopping and restaurants within a very short distance. It is readily accessible to the Washington Metro system as well as two major highways, including the I-395 which can have you downtown in 20 minutes.
