You Could Live Here (in our house that is…)

our house

Our house, which could be your new home!

Jay and I currently live in a funky little house nicknamed “Pee Wee’s Playhouse” in Falls Church, VA, just off Route 29.  We have loved living in this quirky 3 bedroom upside-down house with a great location and great landlords.  Now that we are moving, it could be yours!  The house would be best for a couple like us or perhaps a couple with one or two small children.  Just comment on the post or send us an email (servicedrivenus (at) gmail.com) for more details or to take a tour.

House Features

  • 1 Master Bedroom with 2 closets and 2 small bedrooms (all on the first floor)
  • 1 full bath downstairs and a small “toilet room” upstairs
  • a large living room/dining room space and adjoining office or study
  • a shed with room for multiple bikes or tools
  • a screened in back porch as well as a deck
  • nice front loading washer and dryer
  • an open kitchen with fridge and counter tops hidden from view
  • a large side yard and small backyard with room to grow vegetables or do composting

Location

  • inside the Beltway
  • right near the City of Falls Church but technically in Fairfax County
  • can access Rt 29 and Rt 50 from neighborhood streets (which is very helpful if there is any kind of traffic back up).
  • on the edge of a nice family neighborhood and local shops and restaurants including Pizzeria Orso, Elevation Burger, Super Chicken (best local Peruvian Chicken!), and Lebanese Butcher
    • We were able to keep well fed during the blizzard by walking to local stores and restaurants.

Transportation

  • Free parking (including 2 spots in the driveway)
  • Less than a block from a WMATA bus stop with buses to the East Falls Church metro, Ballston, Tysons, and Annandale every 20 minutes
  • about 1 mile to the East Falls Church and West Falls Church metros

Here’s how it is described by our landlord in the ad:

Sunny, high-ceiling living/kitchen area, with extra rooms for dining, office, exercise, etc.  Contemporary and unique architect-designed style with skylights, central air, off-street parking, wood-burning fireplace, screened porch and balcony.
