Arlington VA Townhomes
Guide to Arlington VA Townhomes
As population growth in the Washington, DC area exploded over the past 50 years, Arlington County, Virginia has transformed from a sleepy Washington suburb to a more urban alternative to the heavily developed counties to its west and south. This has put an enormous premium on the price of real estate in the county and created a heavy demand for denser housing. For people that are looking for the outdoor space and private entrances that often aren't available in vertical-style residences, but prefer not to have the maintenance requirements that come with buying a single-family home, townhomes can be a great option.
Townhomes for Sale in Rosslyn
Rosslyn is the first Virginia Metro stop heading west from DC and is located right across the Key Bridge from Georgetown. Rosslyn is home to a wide variety of townhomes, many of which are at the high-end of the market. Highgate and Palisades Park offer a mixture of one and two-car front-load garage homes along with slightly less expensive rear-load (Palisades Park) and communal-garage style townhomes. Monument Place is home to stately four and five-level rear-load garage homes with rooftop terraces immediately overlooking the Marine Corps War Memorial and across from the National Mall.
Townhomes for Sale in Courthouse
Courthouse, the Arlington urban village that's home to Arlington's amazing farmer's market, offers a couple of great options. Bromptons at Courthouse/Rosslyn and Courthouse Hill both feature rear-load garage homes. Hillcrest has two-car front-load garage models, many of which back into wooded parkland. Vista at Courthouse features both vertically-stacked and communal-garage homes.
Townhomes for Sale in Clarendon
Many are surprised to discover that Arlington's "downtown,” Clarendon, has a couple of townhomes right off of the bustling commercial avenues Wilson Boulevard and Clarendon Boulevard. One of the better-known townhome developments, Clarendon Park, was built by EYA Associates and is situated adjacent to the Clarendon Market Common. Many of these rear-garage homes boast rooftop terraces and overlook picturesque parks. On the opposite side of Arlington's most sought-after neighborhood is the four-level, all-brick community, Bromptons at Clarendon. These townhomes rise impressively above Kirkwood Street and are a short stroll to Clarendon’s top hot spots.
Townhomes for Sale in Ballston/VA Square
At the end of the Arlington Metro line are the Virginia Square and Ballston neighborhoods, which are surrounded by a variety of small clusters of townhomes. The most exclusive of these is the Bromptons at Ballston, which is designed in the more contemporary rear-load garage style. On the southwest outskirts of Ballston, Cathcart Springs is a collection of non-garage townhouses in a park-like setting, and Buckingham Commons are some of the newest townhomes in Arlington, built with a rear-load garage design.
Townhomes for Sale in Southampton
Moving away from the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor, Southampton is a popular Metro-accessible neighborhood of townhome-style condos across from Pentagon City. This neighborhood includes a pool, plus a location close to the action of Pentagon City. There are also several non-Metro accessible townhomes found throughout the Northern Virginia community, particularly in and around the Shirlington neighborhood. Homes in Shirlington Crest are popular with homebuyers and are built with rear-load garages.
Choosing the Right Arlington Townhome for You
Both fee-simple and condominium ownership townhomes have continued to emerge throughout Arlington, which is a housing trend that is bound to stick around for years to come. These homes are ideal for those looking for more space than a traditional condominium, but are not ready to move away from bustling neighborhoods. Stay tuned for new townhome developments throughout Arlington, as the Northern Virginia city continues to be a hot spot in the Washington, DC metro area.

Creative Cauldron and Pizzeria Orso
A great evening out for us is to have dinner at Pizzeria Orso then walk one block to see a performance at Creative Cauldron. You have to try the Brussels Chips for an appetizer then move on to the Butternut Squash Pansotti. If you want a pie, they make authentic Neapolitan Pizza. And Creative Cauldron plays range from children's presentation like Pinocchio to more adult plays like the world premiere of The Monsters of the Villa Diodati. Every year they do at least one production (often more) that get nominated for a Helen Hayes Award. By the way, parking is free!
