North Arlington Luxury Real Estate

For real estate shoppers perusing the luxury home market in Arlington, Virginia, there are two important subcategories to consider, North Arlington and its next-door counterpart, South Arlington. Which is better and which has more upscale properties. The quickest and easiest answer is usually North Arlington, that being the area north of Route 50. But it is by no means a complete response, as the southern portion also presents a fertile menu of real estate choices, including luxury bargains.

But for now, let’s concentrate on the vibrant and highly desirable North Arlington region, home to numerous popular neighborhoods and subdivisions, from urban and trendy to posh and suburban. The area stretches west from the Potomac River, beginning with the Rosslyn waterfront neighborhood, also known as the Gateway to Arlington. This is the start of the exciting Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor, a series of five hip villages that are interconnected by the Metro. North Arlington is bordered by Fairfax County along its western and northern sides.
