Beautiful single family home offering one level living 9 miles from DC, 8 miles to Crystal City and lies just off the GW Parkway for easy access to either. The half acre lot is wooded and lies in the Tauxemont Community which consists of 100 homes, most a on a half acre or larger. The community was established in 1940 and lies in a mature wooded stand of tall trees. Sidewalks and streetlights are banned which gives the community the feel of a rural village set in a forest which encourages the residents to do a lot of walking. There is a shopping center within a 10 minute walk and in the opposite direction, there is the GW Parkway bike trail which connects to bike trails throughout the DC area. One can even bike to Dulles airport from the front door. The community has its own water system which produces soft water and adds no chemicals to the water. It is fresh, chemical free water delivered to each house via the community water system. The annual payment of $500 includes the unmetered water and the fees to maintain the community.The current owner has completed many upgrades.
