Rarely available! The age-qualified Railroad Cottages are the winner of the Urban Land Institute 2019 Award for Excellence in Housing. If you are wanting to downsize but do not want the elevators and shared hallways of a traditional condo, this home is for you! The Railroad Cottages are the perfect downsizing alternative to multi-story condominiums and are as easy to live in and care for. The low monthly dues cover landscaping, snow removal, home exterior maintenance, common area and Common House maintenance, most utilities and insurance. This home has private outdoor space to the side where you may fence for a pet or private garden. Natural light pours in through the large, energy efficient windows- many with beautiful plantation shutters. The generous 9 ft. ceilings make the home feel spacious. The main level has all you need on a daily basis including a large, beautiful kitchen, owners bedroom, powder room, and laundry. There are zero steps from your covered parking space, down the boardwalk, onto your front porch, into the home and even on into the zero-threshold walk-in owners shower. Along with being built with Universal Design principles, this home is certified EarthCraft Gold. The remarkable construction has energy efficient geothermal heating and cooling, 2x6 construction and exceptional insulation. The solar on the carport powers a car charging station, common area lighting and all power needs of the Common House. The Common House is a wonderful resource for residents- have a casual drink with friends in the evenings or reserve the space for larger gatherings or events. It has a large entertainers kitchen, dining area with seating for 20 and a living space with sofas and a big screen tv. The Common House also has a guest bedroom and bathroom on the second level for overflow guests. In addition, this building has power backup so residents have a place to go during power outages to stay warm or cool, as the case may be. Every aspect of The Railroad Cottages has been designed to create opportunities for interaction and neighborliness and every detail has been carefully planned and exquisitely executed. Situated on the W&OD Trail and only one block off of Broad St., this home could not be better situated to take advantage of all the new mixed-use developments in the immediate area. The tight-knit community of Falls Church City offers easy access to public transportation, shops, restaurants, entertainment and community events. Come be a part of a truly unique neighborhood! Appointment required. Please call 307-413-2872
