Ballston, VA Homes For Sale

To say homes for sale in Ballston, Virginia are trending upward would be understating the point. This is the epicenter for Arlington’s “work, live and play” environment—where all the great restaurants are, where the best shopping is and where uber-hip lofts, townhouses and other luxury condos for sale threaten to blot the sun from the sky. It’s getting crowded but it’s still super awesome.

Back in the 1700s this neighborhood was known as Ball’s Crossroads, named after the famed Balls of Virginia family—the ones who spawned George Washington. Even back then it was a busy place and it just kept growing as centuries passed. The early twentieth brought increased development with Victorian, Colonial and Sears Roebuck “Craftsman” homes for sale, as well as row houses, apartment and commercial buildings.

In 1951, the Parkington Shopping Center opened its doors, leading to a new era of retail growth. But eventually the area around the Glebe and Wilson crossroads began to deteriorate. Arlington County introduced the Ballston Sector Plan in 1980 and the centerpiece was the transformation of Parkington into Ballston Common with upscale shopping and nearby condos for sale. But that’s old news now—a major redevelopment will transform the mall once again, into Ballston Center—an exciting new mixed-use space with new shops and restaurants, improved street access and even upscale living.
