More About Arlington, VA

Arlington has its roots in colonial era farming. It was also once considered part of Fairfax County, and for a lengthy period of time was part of the newly formed federal district before retroceding to Alexandria. It wasn’t until 1920 that Arlington County was formally named. A lot had happened during those interceding years. Tobacco farmers used to bring their wares to market in Georgetown via the Rosslyn ferry during the 1800s, hopefully dodging danger at the notorious Dead Man’s Hollow. Arlington was the site of deadly skirmishes during the Civil War, and there was a subsequent clean-up campaign during the turn of the century that saw Rosslyn’s brothels and gambling halls razed. Streetcars also arrived during that period of time, connecting Arlington to Washington, DC, contributing to a new era of residential development.

Today, Rosslyn is known as the Gateway to Arlington. The ferry is long gone, as are the original streetcars, replaced by a modern Metrorail system connecting Washington to the neighborhoods of Rosslyn, Courthouse, Clarendon, Virginia Square, and Ballston. This is one of the most desirable urban areas in Washington Metro, both as a shopping and dining mecca and as a place to live. Luxury condominiums include Turnberry Tower, The Waterview, Gaslight Square, Atrium, Wooster and Mercer, the brand-new Pierce, and so many more. Detached single-family houses also play a huge role in the Arlington real estate inventory, in posh neighborhoods like Country Club Hills, Yorktown, Rivercrest, Williamsburg, Waverly Hills, and Lyon Village to name a few.

As one of the most popular places to live in the nation, Arlington offers a winning formula with lots of variety. You can live in an urban neighborhood or a suburb. Home construction ranges from brand new to vintage, and from modern to traditional. The unemployment rate is extremely low, the schools are highly ranked, and it was the first place in the nation to achieve LEED Platinum certification for green energy and sustainability. Arlington is multicultural, has a great arts and entertainment scene, and a wealth of parks and other outdoor attractions. You can also shop ‘til you drop along the famous Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor.

In summation, Arlington regularly tops the list in many of America’s ranking categories. It’s a great place to visit and an even better place to live. To learn more about luxury real estate in the city and the county, call Andre Perez at District Partners at Compass, 202-929-3600.
