Arlington, Virginia, is a popular Washington, DC, suburb known for its close proximity to the District as well as serving as the home of the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery. The community has attracted a wealthy, highly educated and increasingly diverse population as both an employment center as well as a residential neighborhood.
Traditionally Arlington neighborhoods are divided into North and South Arlington with Rt. 50/Arlington Boulevard as the dividing line. Housing options span a number of choices ranging from 1920s bungalows to 1960s townhouses to upscale, new high-rise developments. Homes near the McLean border typically are larger and situated on larger lots than some of the more urban options near Lee Highway which are walkable to shops and other conveniences. Regardless of the housing type, demand in the Arlington community has translated into a robust market for Arlington properties.
Arlington’s 26 square miles are bordered by Fairfax County on the west and north, by the city of Falls Church on the west, on the east by the Potomac River, and on the south by the city of Alexandria.
Arlington is served by the Orange Line from Rosslyn to Ballston and the Blue and Yellow Lines to Pentagon City and Crystal City.
