Welcome to 5217 New Kent Road - a lovely family-size Colonial home in the established community of Linden Hill Village. After being lovingly maintained and nicely updated by the original owner, the home is being offered for the first time since the home was built. You enter into a welcoming oversized foyer with double coat closets, gleaming hardwoods, and a view of the lovely open staircase. To the left is the living room with bright, natural light and refinished oak flooring. To the right of entry is the formal dining room, with a triple window and deep window sill, providing ample room for family gatherings. Beyond is the kitchen, where new luxury vinyl plank flooring has just been installed.

Adjacent is the family room with new carpet and chair rail, and a wood burning fireplace, providing a cozy area for chilly fall evenings.

The laundry area on the first floor has been converted to a pantry closet, but could easily be converted back to accommodate a washer/dryer. A powder room and access to the one-car garage complete the first level. Upstairs you will discover four generously-sized bedrooms, all with tons of closet space.
