Sunny house situated on a large lot atop a small hill set back allowing for views of a peaceful tree-lined street. Walk up the newly built flagstone steps to the front door. **Tax records state this is a 2-bedroom, 1 bath home. This is no longer correct. There are TWO full baths and THREE bedrooms. The lower level (with many windows out to the garden) has a lot of finished living space that is not reflected in the square footage. The freshly painted living room has hardwood floors, crown molding, custom built-in shelves, and a cozy wood-burning fireplace with mantle. Separate dining room has windows on 2 sides and a corner cabinet with paned doors. Kitchen has a comfortable cork floor with granite countertops, plenty of wood cabinetry and a window looking out to the garden. Main level has 2 full bedrooms - one could be a home office. Full bath on main level has updated fixtures. Hallway doors are all a craftsman style with original period door knobs. The lower level has plenty of windows and natural light. At the bottom of the stairs to the lower level discover the nook for your library. The master bedroom, with windows that look out onto the garden, has a large walk-in closet with Elfa shelving.

A bonus room is perfect for a complete workshop or use as storage space. The fenced-in backyard has a planted bed with native plantings. No need for a vineyard trip because there are several beautiful cabernet grapevines left by the owners along the side of the house in a waterproofed bed plus an herb garden. There is even a small grapevine fence in the garden A well-maintained storage 6x10 shed is at the back of the property. There is a neighborhood park just around the corner, and walk to District Taco .1 miles away. A local book club that has been existing for over 20 years welcomes new neighbors. Nottingham/Swanson/Yorktown schools are the pyramid.

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"). 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.
