9944 B Corsica St | Vision in Vienna
As their new construction home was nearing completion, the owners of 9944 B Corsica St began interviewing Realtors to sell their current home. After many interviews, they knew we were the best choice to sell their home for top market value due to our energy, custom marketing strategy, and local market expertise.
9944 B Corsica St was a unique home to the market. It was a large home that had been lovingly maintained on a big lot in a highly rated school district. Within 4 days of hitting the market, our marketing strategy paid off and the sellers accepted a full price offer. Everything was moving smoothly with the transaction until the appraised value came in $48,000 under the contract price. We were shocked as we knew the home’s true value. Normally when an appraisal comes in under contract price either the sellers agree to lower the price or the buyers agree to increase their down payment to make up the difference (or some combination of the two).
Because of the specialness of 9944 B Corsica St, there were no similar recent sales for the appraiser to easily compare the home to. Recent sales in the neighborhood had been tear downs selling around $850,000, or brand new construction homes selling around $1,500,000. But we knew the home was worth the agreed upon price and we worked closely with the buyer’s agent and lender to get a second appraisal completed. The second appraiser was more experienced and their appraisal came in at contract price. All parties were happy as the sellers didn’t have to reduce the price and the buyers didn’t have to increase their downpayment.

Joy, joy, joy! That’s what you will feel everyday living at 9944B Corsica St. Located in the heart of Vienna, this home has room for everyone with 5 bedrooms, 3 finished levels, and a ½ acre lot to enjoy the Virginia seasons.
Any stresses of the day will instantly melt away as you walk through your sunny yellow front door (remember that joy thing we mentioned?). A smile cannot help but break across your face as you are welcomed into the foyer with gleaming hardwoods that extend throughout the main level. To your right is your living room, the perfect place to entertain guests or unwind with a glass of wine and cheese plate. To your left is your home office, where you can wrap up any work in peace and quiet thanks to the french doors.
You continue down the hall, perhaps with a little skip in your step, to the heart of the home. The eat-in kitchen is sunny and spacious with granite counters, pantry, large center island, and stainless steel appliances. You throw on your apron, do your best Julia Child impression, and whip up some coq-au-vin. Your masterpiece can be served in the formal dining room featuring wainscoting, crown moulding, and a lovely view of the mature backyard landscaping through the large bay window. Or perhaps you are just the kind of jedi-master who makes coq-au-vin on a weeknight and decide to casually gather round the dining area in the kitchen.
The kitchen and dining area flow right into the sunken family room. In the cooler months, you can come together in front of the gas fireplace for a perfect game night. Or in the summer, head out to the large screened in porch for an ice cream or night cap.
When you can’t keep your eyes open any longer, you head upstairs where 4 spacious bedrooms await. The master suite is something to behold. With two walk-in closets, high-cathedral ceilings, and an en-suite bathroom larger than your entire college dorm room, this master suite is truly your oasis. Plus, the master suite is so large that when you wake up in the morning bursting with excitement that you live at 9944B Corsica St, there is plenty of space to do a celebratory cartwheel in complete privacy.
Rounding out the upper level is the laundry room and 3 additional bedrooms, one with a private en-suite bath and two jack-and-jill style bedrooms with a shared buddy bath.
In your free time, you head downstairs to the walk-up lower level for some much deserved R&R. The rec room is the perfect place to binge watch your favorite show in solace or have friends over for movie night. The lower level also boasts a 5th bedroom and full bathroom, perfect for in-laws, an au-pair, or overnight guests.
When your delight just cannot be contained indoors, you head out to the spacious backyard with mature trees. 9944B Corsica St sits on a half acre lot, so there is plenty of space to run around, host a bbq, or practice your aforementioned happy-dance cartwheels. The lot also backs to church property, which means there are no other houses in your view.
When you must leave home, it’s a breeze as 9944B Corsica St is located with quick and easy access to the 66, Metro station, and downtown Vienna. But don’t worry, there will be easy parking when you come home again in the oversized 3 car side-loading garage.
