Living within walking distance of a Metro station is luxury enough for many residents who want access to the rest of the Washington metropolitan area without fighting the region’s notoriously frustrating traffic jams.

Potential home buyers whose desires extend beyond being close to public transportation may want to consider Dunn Loring Chase, a luxury community under development by NVHomes that includes 18 single-family homes within a five-minute walk of the Dunn Loring Metro stop. In addition to a convenient location, these homes offer 3,082 to 4,576 square feet of living space, brick fronts and two-car garages.

Dunn Loring Chase residents may have an easy walk to the Metro, but they also have quick access to I-66, the Beltway, Routes 29 and 50 and to shopping in Tysons Corner. Just five homes remain for sale.

The homes have brick fronts, brick stoops, a coach lantern and accent lamps at the front entrance and the garage, along with professional landscaping. The community features sidewalks and trees. Residents pay a homeowner association fee of $44 per month.

Inside, each home has a chandelier in the foyer, a main staircase with oak railings, oversized three-piece crown moldings and cased openings; French doors with transoms, a gas fireplace and hardwood floors in the foyer, kitchen and powder room. The center-island kitchens have 42-inch cabinets, a butler’s pantry, a standard pantry and granite counters. Each full bath has ceramic tile floors, and the master bath has a soaking tub, a separate shower and double vanities. The homes have natural gas heat, a gas hot water heater and a three-piece rough-in for a lower-level bath.

The Wynterhall model has 3,420 finished square feet and is priced from $999,990.

This home has a covered front entrance leading into a two-story foyer with four architectural columns. Two columns flank the entrance to the formal living room, which has a triple window and an optional bay window.

On the opposite side of the foyer, the formal dining room has a tray ceiling, a triple window and four columns, along with an adjacent butler’s pantry.

At the center of this home is a wide staircase leading to the upper and lower levels. In one corner is a study with a double-door entrance, an adjacent powder room and optional bay windows and bookcases.

The focal point for the home is a dramatic two-story family room with a gas fireplace and a wall of windows. Nearby is a rear staircase to the upper level.

The center-island kitchen and breakfast area are nearby, along with a walk-in pantry and a laundry room.

Buyers can expand the family room, add a morning room and a conservatory, and expand the laundry room.

Upstairs, the master suite has a tray ceiling, two walk-in closets and a luxury bath. The master suite can be expanded above the garage, if desired, which adds 10 feet to the bedroom and adds to the size of the bathroom and closets.

Three more bedrooms and a second full bath complete this level. Buyers can add a private, additional full bath to the fourth bedroom.

Plans for the optional finished lower level add a recreation room, media room, home office, wet bar, fireplace, bath and storage rooms to the home.
