OPEN EVERY SUNDAY 2:00-4:00. 2 of 10 homes are still available. 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, exterior maintenance, common area and Common House maintenance, most utilities and insurance. Each cottage home has private outdoor space to the rear and side where residents may fence in for a pet or private garden. Natural light pours in through the large, energy efficient windows. The generous 9 ft. ceilings make the homes feel spacious. The main level has all you need 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 beautiful front porch, into the home and even on into the zero-threshold walk-in owners shower. Along with being built with Universal Design principles, these homes will be certified EarthCraft Gold. Each home has its own highly energy efficient geothermal heating and cooling system, 2x6 construction and exceptional insulation. There will be solar on the carport to power a car charging station, common area lighting and all power needs of the Common House. Every aspect of The Railroad Cottages has been designed to create opportunities for interaction and neighborliness. The Common House is a wonderful resource for the residents. Have a casual drink with friends in the evenings or reserve the space for larger gatherings or events. The Common House will have 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 community building will have power backup so residents have a place to go during power outages to stay warm or cool, as the case may be. Every detail has been carefully planned and exquisitely executed. Situated on the Washington and Old Dominion Trail and only one block off of Broad St., these homes could not be better situated to take advantage of all of 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 see this unique and innovative little neighborhood and be a part of something truly unique.
