Rock Spring

The name almost says it all for one Arlington neighborhood. With a population topping just 6,000 people, Rock Spring is a serene and woodsy option for homebuyers.  The “spring” reference comes from a bubbling spring behind homes on the south side of Rock Spring Road. This quiet, family-centric neighborhood is full of nicely kept homes, including some mid-century designs and some much larger, new construction homes.

In fact, most people living in the neighborhood do own their homes. The average home in Rock Spring tops $1 million in this well-kept neighborhood.  Read more about Rock Spring.
