What Should You Look For When Looking For A Child-Friendly Residence In Arlington, Virginia?

Are you a parent reflecting on the thought of securing a purchase on a family home in 22205 in Arlington?

While bonus rooms and basements are nice for corralling rambunctious children, they’re not so right for tykes who have to be constantly supervised.

An open-floor-plan or a great room with the kitchen, dining, and family room all in one large space is a good choice for some families. This gives children room to play but keeps them supervised.

All parents in Arlington know the importance of having a yard, but unless you plan to go outside every time the children go outside, you’ll also want to check how easy it is to see that yard from indoors. A big outside play area is nice, but for the majority of parents, it’s so much nicer if it’s easy to care for children.

When you tour a detached, check to see if these kitchen windows are situated so you can prepare or clean-up after a meal while the children play Wiffle ball out back? Or if you work from home, does your desk have a clear view of your small ones’ swing-set or play-area?
