Comments:  The Cardinal Forest Condominium complex, lined with cherry blossom trees in full bloom, is quietly tucked away at the edge of Lake Accotink Park, and offers a freshly painted and upgraded peaceful two bedroom, one bath ground unit with numerous community amenities. Wide winding roads in the Cardinal Forest neighborhood of West Springfield make for a relaxing commute home after a long day. Ground level, this unit is one of the few permitted to install flooring other than carpet. The waterproof laminate floors were installed just last year, and allow for easy clean up after a rainy afternoon. The open living and dining rooms welcome guests and create a natural, fluid floor plan. Step outside from the living room to the secluded patio - the unit backs to a quiet courtyard that leads to Accotink State Park trails. Invite friends and family to enjoy an evening of grilling and cornhole right in your backyard! This unit is also great for families with pets, easily take your furry family members outside for a quick walk. A secure outside storage room is accessible from the patio. An updated kitchen extends into the dining area, providing extra quartz counter space for meal prep. The sand-colored marble backsplash contrasts with the sleek black cabinetry, and the soft under-cabinet lighting shines on the upgraded stainless steel appliances. The refrigerator and stove are brand new, installed less than a week before hitting the market! The generous two bedrooms are down the hall, carpets replaced just last year. The primary bedroom features a spacious walk-through closet with built-in shelving that leads to the large shared bath. Wide countertops allow for two mirrors under brand new light fixtures, accommodating everyone during the morning rush. The rare in-unit washer + dryer are discreetly tucked away in the hall for your convenience. On days requiring multiple loads, the condo association has additional laundry facilities right across from your building. The electrical panel is brand new this year, and is accessible from the hall as well. Low condo fee of $325 / month, includes gas and one reserved parking space (the closest spot to the building!) with the following complex amenities - access to two pools and sports courts (tennis and basketball), an extra storage area for each unit, the club house with two party rooms available to book for private events, and unique RV and reserved boat docking areas. The complex often plans social events like movie nights and pool parties to encourage community spirit. Not only is 8353 Dunham Ct within walking distance to Lake Accotink State Park, there are numerous other parks for picnics, biking, and summer adventures in the surrounding area. Giant and Whole Foods Market are a 4 minute drive down Rolling Rd, just outside Cardinal Forest Complex.
