Letter from the Seller

The military brought my husband and me to the DC metro area.  We ended up staying here longer than we initially thought and struggled with our love of nature while living in a city.  We found our house accidentally while turning the wrong way to go to a birthday party. I remember driving down Willington and falling in love with the hidden oasis of nature, yet,  so close to the city. We loved that we could access 95. 495, and the ICC in less than 10 minutes and still be surrounded by nature. We loved our house and all of the memories we made in the kitchen with the fire going.  We loved that we could live on the main floor as we got older. With the dual zone heating we envisioned raising our children and then we could “close down” the upstairs when they moved away to college and “reopen” when they came home.  We loved that there was a separate first floor for us to exercise, guests to visit, and my husband’s workshop room. The kids often joked about the Harry Potter Room under the stairs. We had the best time hiking in our woods, having the kids and dogs play in the lake and on the little beach off the trail, fishing in the creek under the bridge in our driveway and riding bikes on the cul-de-sac.  I can still hear the kids laugh on the tree swing in the back and remember the naps on the front porch. The Willington home was our wooden oasis in the city. Where else could we have over an acre of land with acres and acres of woods and trails at the end of our yard? We had every intention of staying in the home forever so we put in a whole house generator and added extra touches. This was not a house, it was our home. However, as the saying goes, we made plans and God laughed.  Despite all of our intentions, my husband’s job took us to a new city. We had a difficult time leaving our slice of nature heaven. We only hope the next family will carry on all the love and memories that we formed in our home and on Willington. The neighbors on Willington are the best and the woods go back to Rachel Carson and helped us teach our kids to continue our love of nature.
