Stately Downtown Fredericksburg euphoria awaits at 701 Mary Ball Street! Prepare to be charmed and mesmerized! This fabulous colonial has been under its current owners’ care since 2003. It spans three bedrooms, two baths and has so much style and class. Directly across the street from this prime, corner lot is Kenmore/Memorial Recreation Park, with tennis and pickleball courts, basketball courts, vast green areas, playground equipment and so much more. Just up the street are Fredericksburg’s best restaurants and shopping! Cultural attractions are within minutes (plus the downtown VRE/Amtrak station), and, for commuters, multiple I-95 exits are within 10 minutes. Zooming in on the acreage, a custom aluminum black fence designed by the current owners surrounds its front yard and beside the charming front gate, a larger gate for entering and exiting. Also, a towering silver maple sets the tone. Otherwise, it’s low maintenance landscaping and a sizeable green space. There is plenty of permitted street parking space on two sides for owners and guests in front of the home. Out back, the homeowner has transformed the yard into a secret garden vibe and if you are a garden lover, and a bird watcher, your fenced-in utopia awaits.
The current owners have added so many features and will miss their incredible Secret Garden vibe out back. Staples include a newer patio with a surrounding elegant wall and column and large stepping stones that extend from the patio to the shed and from the patio around the side of the house. Marvin French doors lead inside. Under a stunning redbud, You’ll find another patio area great for an umbrella set. Other highlights include 9-foot holly trees installed by the current owners for added privacy, and a front and back yard irrigation system along with a cream-colored storage shed. Noting before heading inside – there are full house plans available to the next owner should they want to extend the primary bedroom, add a family room and a garage and more! The house itself is brick, with cream siding and dark brown shutters. Inside, gleaming Brazilian cherry hardwood floors and natural light radiate. To the right is a living area with a wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen has oak-esque flooring, quartz countertops, antique French ivory-colored cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, undercabinet lighting and lovely crown molding. From the kitchen is a French door entry to a screened-in porch that has been wonderfully updated! A bifold closet with the laundry machinery (conveys!) is right off the kitchen, too. Upstairs, you’ll find the home’s three bedrooms and two full baths. Beautiful and warm flooring abounds in the bedrooms. The primary bedroom is nicely sized with an ensuite bath including a tub/shower combo, single sink, linen closet, and quaint window. Of the additional bedrooms, they may easily be used for a home office, nursery, or the space of your dreams! The final bath upstairs was recently renovated and includes a pedestal sink, glass enclosed shower and tile flooring. Worth flagging systems wise – the home’s crawl space is fully lined, and the house has a recently replaced new roof along with an attic fan and the heat pump has been replaced in recent years. Otherwise, all systems have been meticulously maintained. What will capture your heart at 701 Mary Ball Street? You will definitely want to come see this home for yourself!
