Resort-style amenities... and an open and upgraded residence to call your very own? It’s all waiting for you at 11 Whaleback Lane! Built in 2013, this like-new colonial includes three bedrooms, three baths and spans more than 2,600 square feet. It sits on a sizeable .26-acre lot in the Celebrate by Del Webb community. For an active adult lifestyle, Celebrate by Del Webb delivers it all. The community’s 31,000 square-foot, resort-style Riverside Lodge includes a fitness facility, indoor pool, pool tables, walking track, a library and areas for community events, classes, workshops and more. Just outside the lodge are outdoor sports courts (tennis, pickleball and bocce), an amphitheater, dining terrace and fire pit. There is something for everyone, programming each day and an extensive sidewalk network to complement it all. Zooming in on the home itself, the residence’s yard is very much an oasis of its own. Professionally landscaped and serviced by a six-zone irrigation system throughout, its oversized back yard includes a lighted rock garden, sun deck, covered patio and steppingstones to the spacious front driveway. The tasteful landscaping continues out front, where you’ll find a two-car garage with keypad. Before heading inside, note its new roof (with extended warranty!) and low-maintenance double five-inch vinyl siding. The home itself is a beige with brown door/shutters. Stepping through its fiberglass insulated front door, the home is as open and bright as it gets. Nine-foot ceilings abound, with gleaming hardwood flooring stretching throughout much of the main level. Beyond the foyer, core areas include the extended great room (with gas fireplace and French door exit to the sun deck – it is huge!), dining area and chef’s kitchen. The kitchen includes 42-inch cherry cabinets with under-cabinet lighting, stainless steel appliances (a new range among them!), granite countertops, ceramic tile floors, backsplash, and a spacious pantry. Still on the main level, there are two carpeted bedrooms and two full baths. The primary suite includes oodles of closet space as well as a modern ensuite bath, complete with ceramic tile-clad shower with seating/grab bar, double-bowl raised vanities, maple vanity cabinets and designer light fixtures. The additional bedroom upstairs may be easily utilized as a home office! On the laundry room front, the washer and dryer convey, plus there is plumbing for a possible sink. Heading to the basement, you’ll see upgraded wall-to-wall carpeting in the communal areas. You’ll find the home’s final full bedroom (super-large with a sitting area!), full bath as well as ample storage space. Core component-wise, the home includes meticulously kept Lennox 13-SEER HVAC and 50-gallon electric hot water heater systems, a wholehouse humidifier and supplemental electric heat in the great room and primary bath, if ever needed. With this Celebrate by Del Webb location, so much Fredericksburg action is easily accessible! Dining, shopping, and grocery destinations await at Celebrate Virginia North Shopping Center just five minutes north. Even more options await along US-17, which is within minutes as well. For commuters, I-95 (US-17 exit) is within 10 minutes and Downtown Fredericksburg is less than 15 minutes southeast. The original owner here was drawn by “how open and spacious everything is.” Whether it’s the open floor plan, stunning outdoor spaces, or community amenities aplenty, there is so much to cherish at 11 Whaleback Lane!
