Arlington | VA
Unobstructed view of the Washington Monument from the 20ft balcony AND a half bath for guests make this unit unlike any other currently or recently for sale in Arlington. Only a handful of units in Arlington and Alexandria can claim a view of the Washington Monument without any plans for future development that will obstruct it, and this is one of them. From your balcony, you also get incredible views of the July 4th fireworks on the National Mall and many other nearby shows, the Potomac River, and the Jefferson Memorial. There has been just one other 1BR condo in the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor sold or offered for sale under $430,000 since Jan 2020 that includes a guest bathroom. Large sliding glass doors off the living room and bedroom allow in tons of natural light as well as providing two access points to the balcony. The entire unit has been freshly painted and deep cleaned and the living room floors were replaced four years ago.
The building features an excellent amenity package including a daily attended front-desk, outdoor pool, renovated lobby, gym, and sauna. The sale includes one assigned garage parking spot (#59).

Arlington is a county located in the Commonwealth of Virginia, on the west bank of the Potomac River directly across from Washington, D.C. Although sometimes referred to as a city, Arlington is actually a county which contains no incorporated towns or cities within its boundaries. Originally part of the 10-mile square area set aside in 1791 for the nation’s capital, the land now comprising Arlington County was returned to the Commonwealth of Virginia by the U.S. Congress in 1846 and was known at the time as Alexandria County. In 1852, the independent City of Alexandria was incorporated from a portion of the County, leading to confusion, as two adjacent municipal entities continued to share the same name (“Alexandria”). The confusion was resolved in 1920, when Alexandria County renamed itself Arlington County, borrowing its name from the Arlington National Cemetery, which had been established during the Civil War on the grounds of Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s former home, Arlington House.
Although best known generally as the home of the Pentagon, The Iwo Jima War Memorial, and Arlington National Cemetery, the County is also an important employment center. The Federal Government accounts for the lion’s share of the roughly 200,000 jobs in Arlington, but high-tech companies have become increasingly prominent, as have several major associations, Fortune 500 companies, and other nationally known employers. The County’s residential population is among the most highly educated in the nation and is increasingly diverse. Arlington is the home of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and is serviced by the Orange, Blue and Yellow lines of the Washington Metro. The County is traversed by two Interstate highways, I-66 and I-395; as well as by the George Washington Memorial Parkway.
The name Arlington is synonymous in many people’s minds with Arlington National Cemetery, the most famous national cemetery in the United States. Veterans from all the nation’s wars are buried in the cemetery, as are two former Presidents (John F. Kennedy and William Howard Taft). Also located in Arlington are the Pentagon, headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, and several notable memorials, including the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial (also known as the “Iwo Jima Memorial”), the U.S. Air Force Memorial, and the Women in Military Service for America Memorial.
