Dear Prospective Homeowner,

Letter From The Owners

Welcome to 6420 Boulevard View! We adore our home, and are eager to show you what makes it so special. We won’t tell you about everything we like—we’ll let you see some things for yourself— but we wanted to mention a few of the things that we have fallen in love with about it over the years. We fell in love with this house the very first time we saw it—as we rode by it on our bikes. It was so welcoming and stately, surrounded on all sides by azaleas and cherry blossoms and holly and magnolia trees in a quiet neighborhood along the Potomac River. We eat dinners out on the patio in our very own “secret garden.” We run on the GW trail that passes right by the house, and romp with our dogs at the park and nature trail across the street. The location is really special: it feels tucked away in nature-- we routinely see deer and foxes and bald eagles-- but is less than 10 miles from D.C.! Inside is equally charming. We re-furbished the hard wood floors in nearly every room, but kept the original tile in the master bathroom. The sunroom, which has a wall of large windows on three sides, and exposed brick on the fourth, is a great spot to enjoy coffee and the paper in the morning. Steph has spent many hours studying for Nursing School in our library, and loves the custom-built bookshelves and beamed ceilings in there. While she was working, Joby used the attached garage as his own personal fitness center. It has cable TV, and enough room for an exercise bike, StairMaster, home gym and weight set, with room to spare for storage. In the kitchen, Steph loves looking out through the window over the sink into the large, fenced back yard, where she watches the dogs play and imagines little kids of our own running around. And both of us love to curl up under a blanket by the fireplace in the living room. Upstairs, the house is laid out smartly, with three big bedrooms that feel both spacious and cozy. The attached master bathroom gives Joby and Steph privacy when out of town guests visit (which happens a lot!). Joby loves the easy commute—a short, straight shot along the river up the GW Parkway to D.C., and both love being minutes from Old Town, and within walking distance to the Belleview Shopping Center, which has a brand new Safeway, Post Office, 24 hr CVS, and our favorite pizza joint, Primo. It will be hard to say goodbye to our first home as a married couple, and all the wonderful memories we created there, but we are looking forward to another family getting a chance to enjoy this special place and make memories of their own in 6420! Best, Stephanie and Joby Ryan
