Home should feel like home. A place that should give you a sense of relief as you walk in the door and allow you to breathe after a busy day. 5317 West Philippi bridges the gap between tranquil retreat and convenient location. This modern, light filled home is located in one of Fredericksburg's premier 55 and over communities; with tennis courts, community pool, and cable provided through the HOA. The location is perfect for commuters. Everything you need is minutes away: minutes to I-95, a short commute to Quantico, less than 6 miles from shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, and entertainment. The property has been meticulously maintained and leaves nothing for the new owner to do but turn the key and move in. From the formal entry you walk into a large open sitting and formal dining area, with a home office and large windows illuminating everything with natural light. The dining area is perfect for a family dinner or for entertaining guests. The kitchen combines with the family room living space for one roomy expanse. The wood floors keep the main level feeling homey even with the contemporary floor plan. The modern kitchen is centrally located and allows the cook in your home to create while still being part of the conversation, with upgraded Corian Counters and lots of storage. The bedrooms are spacious and well placed to give those staying in the main level master privacy. The master has plenty of closet space and easily fits a king bed. The master bath has both a standing glass shower and soaking tub. The basement, with entry to the backyard, is finished with a workout area/theater room, large entertaining space with custom bar area, refrigerator, and sink. The lower level doubles the home's square footage. The lower bedroom has access to a full bath allowing for the lower floor to be its own private accommodations for visiting guests. Every room in this home is large and inviting. Curl up with a good book in your four season sunroom. Enjoy a movie with friends in your home theater. Allow yourself a few moments of quiet floating in the soaking tub in your luxury master bath. Come relax in your new home.
