Real Estate In Annandale, VA
Annandale is a well-established neighborhood with a wide variety of spacious homes built mostly through the middle portion of the 20th century. As such, real estate available in Annandale boasts large properties - many larger than half an acre - shaded beneath tall, mature trees and accented with custom hardscaping.
Three broad architectural styles dominate the residential real estate landscape in Annandale. The first of these is the typical Mid-Century suburban single-family home common in many American neighborhoods. These homes typically feature split-level or garrison design, placing vinyl siding facades over red brick lower levels, opening from walk-out basements and garages.
The next home type is the classic Georgian or Colonial-inspired home. Symmetrical facades presenting sash windows with exterior shutters, tall roofs, and white-columned entries are some of the hallmarks of these structures.
And finally, Annandale also hosts many charming traditionally-inspired homes reminiscent of 19th century farmhouses or the Cape Cod style. Exterior shutters, brick, and vinyl siding feature again - but this time with relatively un-adorned entries and dormer windows above. However, the more farmhouse-like designs usually boast wide, covered front-porches.
Interiors carry this sense of old-world charm forward, with multiple cozy fireplaces, wood floors, and even exposed roof beams on select properties.
Space here is well utilized, with many homes offering the use of loft spaces and completed basements. Take on a renter, or prepare a space for work, hobbies, games, or relaxation.
Though many of the homes were built between the 50s and 70s, interiors have been carefully updated. Expect to find semi-enclosed kitchens with modern appliances, stone counters, backsplashes, new fittings, and a fresh coat of paint.
