Heading along West Yale Loop in Woodbridge and turning into the outer circle, off of Woodhollow takes you to this corner property on Oakdale that has been on the market 11 days as of Saturday. There was a steady flow of visitors at the Saturday open house, and it will be interesting to see how the price, location and updates play out in this single family Woodbridge home.

Close Up: Stepping into the tiled entry, to the left there is a good sized living room with a vaulted ceiling, Inglenook fireplace and windowed seating nook.

What will be considered here? Even though it is in the outer circle off of West Yale Loop, Woodbridge’s top schools, key recreation and community atmosphere will add value. Overall, the home is a little snug in size and the corner location uses up quite a bit of the outside space. The upgrades in flooring, shutters and tile work well, and additional value might be achieved with expansions or more upgrades.

Who will choose this home? A young family looking for a single family home in Woodbridge may be attracted to this location. Or a mature couple looking for a single level home with extra bedrooms for guests, grandchildren and projects may find this home very workable.
